Okay guys, don’t panic but there’s a very real possibility that those weird adult videos you’ve been searching for online could soon become public knowledge, if hackers get their way.

The word on the web is that anyone who’s been known to access any form of adult content (so, basically, everyone of a certain age at this point, right?), even if they were browsing in Incognito mode, could soon have their porn habits exposed to the world.

The dire warning comes courtesy of blogger Brett Thomas, who reckons people’s porn browsing history appearing online will be the next big privacy scandal.

He wrote:

If you are watching/viewing porn online in 2015, even in Incognito mode, you should expect that at some point your porn viewing history will be publicly released and attached to your name.

At any time, somebody could post a website that allows you to search anybody by email or Facebook username and view their porn browsing history. All that’s needed are two nominal data breaches and an enterprising teenager that wants to create havoc.

I think the next big internet privacy crisis could expose the private and potentially embarrassing personal data of regular people to their neighbors.

Uh oh!

Apparently, if hackers gain access to just one website which has your personal details, they can track this back to a list of the adult websites you’ve visited and any of the questionable pornographic content you may have searched for.

And, given recent leaks like The Fappening and the Ashley Madison hack, we think it’s probably time to get very worried indeed. I didn’t really want to look at that video, okay, I was just curious. I swear…
