 Why Surfing Porn on Android Smartphones Is Not Safe?

Here is why you should not surf porn on your Android smartphones and tablets

Last week we had covered how surfing porn in Incognito mode on all browsers is not that safe. Today we look to another facet of our modern day life, surfing porn on Android smartphones. Since many people still don’t own a PC/laptop it becomes easy to surf porn on your Android smartphones in private. It also helps that smartphones being small can immediately be hidden in case someone jumps on you during your porn watching session.
However, it is worth nothing that surfing porn on Android smartphones is not at all safe. Why?

Here are a few reasons why you should not watch porn on Android smartphones.

The biggest reason for staying away from porn on your Android smartphones is security.  According to research, almost one-quarter of malware on mobile devices comes from porn websites. In other words, watching mobile porn on your Android smartphone is a much higher risk than watching it on your PC. Reason? Smartphone operating systems, especially Android, are not as secure as a PC, there are many vulnerabilities that are unknown, and exploited by cybercrime.
Another security problem is Porn tickers. Porn tickers are an irritating age-old problem with Android smartphones. These come as a fake version of a legit Android app. Like if you watch porn on an Android mobile and then head on to the Play Store to download popular games, porn tickers will disguise themselves in the form of Temple Run, Hay Day, etc. So, if someone taps on it without going through the credentials, they are basically downloading a Trojan.
Another important thing to note about the difference between PC and Android smartphones is that on a PC everything is opened in a different container which is independent of each other. Whereas, Android ecosystem is so much integrated that if you surf on your Chrome browser on your Android smartphone searching for Nike shoes, chances are that your MX Player will start showing Nike ads when you pause between a movie.
The reason for this is that Android smartphones operate in an entirely different format compared to PC/laptops. Another risky aspect of watching porn on Android smartphones is that except for big websites like Pornhub and Xvideos, most other websites use your Android/custom media player to play porn movies. You may have noticed that when you click to play a porn movie, it asks for permission to leave the porn website leaving your porn surfing habits open to scrutiny.
The system of private containers doesn’t exist on Android smartphones except on Samsung Galaxy series smartphones which have a service called Knox. This service, unique to Samsung opens everything in a private container if the smartphone wishes. Hopefully, going ahead more phone manufacturers will bring Samsung Knox like features to their smartphones.
One of the biggest culprits of leaks is location services. Most Android smartphone owner have locations services enabled for a variety of reasons such as for Google Now or Facebook Messenger, sometimes unknown to them. Chances are that such services are enabled even during watching porn on your smartphone, thereby compromising your privacy.
The above are some of the reasons why it is not safe to watch porn on your Android smartphones. If you are a porn addict, it is much better to watch porn using Incognito Mode in your native browser/Chrome browser. Not that, watching porn in incognito mode is safe but it offers relatively more privacy than watching porn in an open browser.
Remember most of the things you do are reported back to Google servers in one form or the other. Follow this basic steps while watching porn.
  • Disable location services
  • Watch in incognito mode
  • Use Knox like features to watch porn
  • Surf only renowned services like Pornhub or Xvideos which have their own native players
  • Dont install files/visit sites which look dubios
  • Dont install apps from porn websites
  • Stay Safe ;)
