Pornhub and xHamster will be blocked in Germany

Pornhub and xHamster are no longer available in the German market. The couperet is on the verge of collapsing. Following the implementation of new child protection legislation, the two titans will become unavailable throughout the whole Teutonic territory very soon.

Pornography has always existed, but the Internet has made it more accessible than ever before. In fact, a few key words now enough to locate extreme content, which is posing a serious problem for miners.

This is a problem since none of these sites checks the age of visitors before granting them access to their content. In fact, all they have to do is click on a simple button to pretend to be above the age of 18.

Pornhub and xHamster will be blocked in Germany.

As a result, Germany, like most of Europe, has asked the major players on the market to take steps to restrict access to their content. Porn hub and xHamster, on the other hand, have not responded favourably to the demands of teutonic situations, and they will now be forced to pay the price.

As a result of new laws relating to the protection of children, all pornographic websites that do not verify the age of their visitors will be banned from the whole Teutonic territory.

The CPMM will issue a blocking order in the coming weeks, which will be accompanied by a list of sites to block. Pornhub and faphouse will take part, but they won’t be the only ones. YouPorn and MyDirtyHobby are also affected.

MyDirtyHobby and YouPorn are also concerned.

However, nothing has been played yet. This order will be sent to all major German service providers, but the owners of these sites will have the opportunity to fight it. As a result of this decision, a new legal battle may be looming.

A battle that has the potential to last years.

However, there is still the issue of the nature of the blockage. In order to block access to reprehensible content, Germany, like its European neighbours, relies mostly on the DNS of access providers. A common method that is simple to contour.

Measures that may or may not be sufficient

As we previously said in this document, DNS blocking is not an inadmissible rempart. To circumnavigate and regain access to blocked sites, just use a DNS other than our FAI’s or even a VPN.

While the operation may be a little difficult for a child, it is quite easy for a teenager who is at least interested in computers to carry out.

It’s worth noting that France is considering a way to restrict access to these sites. For the time being, no decision has been reached.

Facebook wants to prevent porn revenge before it happens

The social network wants potential victims to take a proactive approach to prevent the release of their photos.

Revenge porn kills millions of people every year. According to Mashable, after Facebook launched in April 2017 a new tool to report these private photos released without the consent of the contacts, this fall it will further develop by launching a pilot program responsible for discovering these photos before they are released.

So far, to delete a photo, it has to be tagged by the user, verified by a Facebook member and the complaint verified by them. The snapshot is then “quarantined” and social network algorithms ensure that the snapshot is not uploaded to its page again.

The new method allows people who are concerned about an intimate photo of themselves to appear online and report it to their country’s “eSafety” office in order to stop any attempts to upload to social networks. As a result, Facebook’s algorithms learn to recognize sexually explicit images so you can reject them even before posting. But the Australian Financial Review explained that, to do so, it must leave a trail on the photo and send potential victims to the social media team via Messenger. Facebook claims not to keep the photos, and Internet users will have to remove them from the messaging app.

First test in Australia

Antigone Davis, Facebook’s head of security, said it was the number one in the world. She added: “These tools were developed in collaboration with global security experts, and this is an example of how we use new technologies to ensure the safety of people and prevent injuries.”

The pilot is currently being tested in Australia and will soon be tested in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. If Facebook chose Australia, it was because the organization worked with the government there to launch a portal to report cases of inappropriate images and cyber harassment that relied on the “electronic security” office, and the country was particularly active on revenge porn.

In France, convicted persons face up to two years in prison and a fine of € 60,000.

Twitter in turn prohibits “porn revenge” on its site

Weibo sites no longer need to post sexually explicit photos without the person’s consent. The offender’s account will be blocked.

As of March 11, 2015, Twitter has banned “pornographic revenge” on its website. Now its usage policy states that its users ’accounts that post“ private photos or videos taken or posted without my consent ”will be suspended.

In order to be able to post the message again, the user must delete the photo or video in question. And, if the images are subject to judicial investigation, Twitter will provide the information needed to identify Twittos.

Twitter is slow to respond to the increasing demands of Internet users, who complain about the site’s bad behavior. If he announced in the summer that he would face harassment to improve the security of the Tweto, then only a few small changes would be required. The site continued this policy in February and decided to delete its holder’s account for identity theft or personal details theft.

These new rules were welcomed by Mary Anne Franks, director of the Internet Civil Rights Organization, who tweeted: “@ twitter’s new policy for #revengeporn is good for #privacy (bad for feminists who hate it )) “.

This policy change is part of a larger movement. Therefore, a few weeks ago, Reddit also announced that it would close Internet user accounts that posted sexually explicit photos without the person’s consent. And in late 2013, California passed a law to punish such behavior.
