Youporn email 2

Nicely, the YouPorn brand and nicely-formatted message definitely makes it seem like it has come from the porn video website.

And, uh-oh, it appears YouPorn’s AI algorithm has detected me in a intercourse video that has been uploaded!

Now, I will be forgetful… however I’m fairly certain that I’ve by no means knowingly appeared in a sexually specific film, not to mention uploaded it to YouPorn.

However how intelligent of YouPorn’s AI system to detect that it was me within the video, after which get in contact to warn me.

It makes me marvel what sort of AI know-how they’re utilizing right here. I imply, usually you wouldn’t anticipate even the neatest AI system to have the ability to inform who an individual was by the sort of physique elements which are prone to be taking prime place in a video like this.

Ouch! So, if I don’t need the video revealed on YouPorn I’ve to allow them to know inside seven days.

So, I assume all I’ve to do is click on on the hyperlink to take a look at the video. Appears cheap.

However, rattling it, there’s an issue.

You see, the hyperlink within the e-mail YouPorn has despatched me doesn’t go wherever. There’s no web site deal with to go together with the https:// !

I’m going to have to search out another option to cease the video being revealed.

Youporn email 6

Feels like they’ve received some fairly cool know-how at YouPorn for coping with this sort of state of affairs.

Aha! That is extra prefer it. However I’m undecided if a “fundamental specific” service that stops re-uploading of my saucy intercourse video to twenty web sites (I heard there are extra porn web sites than that) is nice sufficient, even when it solely prices $199.

Youporn email 8

Safety in opposition to the video being re-uploaded to over 300 of YouPorn’s community of companion web sites for simply $699 appears like a greater deal. However grasp on, that is only for one yr! I don’t wish to have to scrub up this mess once more in 12 months time… I would like the perfect safety obtainable to keep up my squeaky clear on-line popularity.

Now this sounds extra prefer it. All the previously-mentioned safety “plus digital safety by MediaWise® and Safeguard” (something that has a registered trademark image has received to be spectacular, proper?) “…based mostly on facial recognition information for 3 years.”

Signal as much as our free publication.
Safety information, recommendation, and ideas.

Three years isn’t pretty much as good as perpetual, however it’s higher than one yr. They usually appear be guaranteeing that “any content material with my biometrics shall be blocked”.

All for a mere $1399.

The place do I pay?

Youporn email 10

Hmmph. I’ve to pay via cryptocurrency? That appears a bit of unorthodox. However hey, perhaps YouPorn is simply making an attempt to guard my privateness. In any case I wouldn’t essentially my companion to identify a cost to YouPorn on my bank card invoice.

Youporn email 11

Let’s take a look at that hyperlink.

Youporn email 12

Darnit. That hyperlink doesn’t work both! I’m simply going to must assume that YouPorn has received a intercourse video of me, as I can’t double-check for myself.
