A study claim; the users' porn websites activities being leaked to the third party

JULY 20 (WTN) - If you are fond of the viewing of porn websites, then be very careful! We are saying that, because porn websites that you are watching may be tracked. After reading this, you might have got to know that what the whole issue is after all. Indeed, a study, conducted by Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University and University of Pennsylvania, claims that the companies like Google, Facebook and Oracle Cloud track porn sites being watched by the users secretly.

This study claims that even if an internet user watches porn sites in incognito mode, his entire online activity can be tracked. That is why, because your search history is not saved on your device in Incognito mode, but it can be tracked.

22,484 porn websites were examined in the study, after which it was concluded that 93 per cent of these porn websites were tracked. Not only this, data is being leaked to the third party after tracking these porn websites. A study, studying porn websites, claims that only 17 per cent of porn websites use encryption.

Google is considered the number one third party company in the study of porn websites, which tracks the activity of users' porn websites. According to the research, Google or its subsidiary advertising platform, double click has tracked 74 per cent of porn websites. Oracle Claude has tracked 24 per cent, and Facebook has tracked 10 per cent of porn websites. For your information, let you know that most pornographic companies are based in Europe.

However, it is not yet clear what Google, Facebook and Oracle Cloud do after tracking the data of porn websites. But researchers say that companies such as Google and Facebook would use the user’s data taken from porn websites to develop advertising profiles. However, it is only speculated, and it can’t be said that this estimate is proved right.

Google has cleared the allegations of tracking activity of users' on porn websites. According to the information received from the media, Google says about these allegations, "We do not believe in developing any kind of advertising profiles based on users' sexual desire, or online activity. We are against showing Google Ads on any adult content websites."

While Facebook has also responded the same as Google has responded on the allegations of tracking activity of users' on porn websites. The answer of Facebook is similar to that of Google. Facebook has clearly stated in its explanation that the Facebook Company does not allow permission to track the adult website for business use.

For your information, let you know that since there is mobile revolution, the number of hits has reached billions on porn websites. In the year 2017, there were 28.5 billion visits to PornHub website. That is, 50 thousand users searched porn on PornHub website in every second. There are thousands of porn websites on the internet at present, on which millions of people watch porn content every day. In a country like India, the number of people who watch porn websites gradually is increasing. According to a study, both men and women are active in viewing porn websites in India.

Visiting on porn websites is increasing day by day. You would be surprised to know that more people visit porn websites than on Netflix, Amazon, and Twitter every month. Well Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Pennsylvania claim that companies like Google, Facebook and Oracle Cloud are tracking activity on porn websites, while Google and Facebook have dismissed the claims of study.

But, experts have opinion that none of the users' online activity is safe. Users’ online activity can be hacked, tracked or recorded. In such a case, the wisdom of all the users depends on the discretion of what they watch on the Internet and what not.
