India is a wide market for porn content. With the advent of internet usage in mobile phones, the users have moved from desktop to handsets to access pornographic content.

Today, a plethora of porn apps are available on the Google Play Store apart from the countless websites where porn content is available free of cost.

Few months back, government pushed for a ban on pornographic content which was later withdrawn. Obviously watching porn is a personal choice and not a matter of law and order.

But if you watch porn content on your android phone then here are some alarming bells for you. In the era of cyber crime and hacking experts, one needs to be extra careful while accessing something like this on internet.

Here we tell you five reasons why watching porn on Android is a risky business and how to safeguard from them:

1. Illegal VAS Subscriptions

If you are losing your mobile balance without your knowledge or consent then it might be because of the illegal VAS subscription activated by the porn website you just visited. The moment you land on the page the VAS subscription gets activated in the background.

Subscriptions like Juiceup packs, horoscope, Dream girl packs, etc with a monthly or daily charge automatically gets activated. To avoid user attention, the amount is generally small – Rs 5 per day or Rs 35 per month.

If you are fallen victim to this then send an SMS by typing “STOP” to 155223 and follow the instruction to deactivate such “services”. The best way out is switching to airplane mode and connecting to wifi; never use you data plan.

2. Security Risk

The mobile applications today have a great access to personal information on your phone. Thus using the phone which has your gmail id login, bank account details and other sensitive information is a huge risk.

It doesn’t need a genius mind to know that cyber criminals would be eyeing the security and privacy of the smartphone for personal benefits.

3. Porn Tickers

The porn tickers continue to a thing of concern for the android users. If you watch porn on android phone and then go to Play Store to download games then porn tickers will mask themselves as Temple Run, Hay Day, etc. So if you click on it without checking the credentials then you are actually downloading a Trojan.

We advise you to browse porn on incognito mode and switch on the “do not allow websites to track” feature. Do not download apps without checking and clear the cache quite frequently.

4. Ransom wares

Ransom wares are sophisticated malware which locks down a device completely and then blackmails the user to pay up to unlock. Such incidents are on the rise these days and it is a very critical issue.

Rogue porn websites have mastered this art of playing with personal information of users. Once caught in this your entire information is at the mercy of the cyber greek. And it is not necessary that they will unlock the phone after receiving the payment.

5. Data Consumption

Streaming porn sites on your mobile phone can prove out to be really costly for you as far as data consumption is concerned. Browsing porn on 2G is out of context and with 3G or 4G data plan your phone bills will shoot high.
