Porn sites are some of the most visited places on the Internet, but many of them lack a basic security feature long used to keep everything from your online banking to your email safe from prying eyes.
If a porn site has HTTPS automatically enabled across all its pages, then someone watching your connection will know which site you’re on but won’t be able to spy on your searches or see which videos you view.
“Depending on what you’re watching, it could really wreak havoc on your life” if exposed, according to FSC communications director Mike Stabile.
