Pornhub will now ask for your name and address before browsing

A big change.

Mindgeek - the owner of popular online porn sites Pornhub, RedTube, YouPorn and Brazzers - will now collect names, mobile phone number, addresses and dates and place of birth before users log in.

You will have to create an account on the site and will be made to log-in before you receive access to the websites' video content.

It comes after new laws in the UK that mean from April of this year our porn habits will be monitored by the British Board of Film Censorship.


As reported previously, compulsory age checks on all pornographic sites are set to be introduced with an age-verification request being the standard practice.

The Metro report that: "One system – AgeID, used by Pornhub and other sites owned by porn giant MindGeek – will prompt users to create an account, using a passport or mobile phone to confirm their age. The data is passed to a government-approved service to confirm that the user is aged 18+ – then users can then use their AgeID account to bypass checks."

In a statement, Matt Hancock, the minister of state for digital and culture, has said that the changes will be "fully in place" by April as part of the Digital Economy Act 2018.

If a website does not comply with these new rules, Internet service providers will be forced to fine and block them.
