Can you attract cyber stalkers by visiting a porn site?

Statistics show that few sites generate as much online traffic online as adult video or porn sites. Pornhub has reported that it received 23 billion visits from viewers worldwide last year.

Similar to most “normal” sites, these adult sites come with own set of cookies, trackers, ad networks and third party content providers. Your browser is flooded with trackers just like after visiting any other site. Most of these porn sites have business reasons not to serve malware or place unique trackers, but it can happen especially with content from third party advertisers on their sites. After visiting a racy internet site, most users are careful to delete browser cookies and web data, but some discover ads and other content seem to follow them around as they continue web surfing. If you suspect that you downloaded a viewer or other files, run your anti-virus which should be able to remove known malware.

Porn sites obviously know the internet path you used to get to their site. Once in contact with your computer these sites place cookies and trackers on your computer. In addition, third party networks which usually provide ads and other content, also place their own cookies and trackers on your computer. Because ad networks are essentially everywhere and on millions of websites, you can easily be tracked from site to site. Your browsing history, the amount of time you spent on each site and what ad you clicked on is being recorded, analyzed, correlated and sold to the highest bidder.

Sometimes malicious ads have been known to popup in your browser after visiting an adult site, warning you that your visit was recorded and for you to call a phone number to erase the record. It is usually safe to ignore these ads and move on.

Some trackers aren’t being put onto your computer, they are based on derived and calculated data captures at the source website. The porn server or its ad server previously digitally fingerprinted your computer and knows when you come back on their site or other sites using the same ad server. The movement of your computer around the internet is once again trackable.
