Maintaining your privacy

There are a number of things that you should take into account when camming.

Browsers: Keep one browser for camming, use another for everything else to avoid confusion between performing and your personal life.

Facebook and other Social Media: Create profiles in your performer name; don’t give your real name, location or any other personal information. Both Facebook and Twitter have features to share your location, make sure these are turned off. While these are all useful outlets for promoting your cam career you may not necessarily want this to overlap into your private life.

Family and Friends: In addition to creating separate profiles above, please use the site blocking feature which allows you to block up to three countries/states from viewing your cam. Details on adding a block can be found here

Email: Create an email account for your performer profiles, use this for the site, social media profiles and signups for ID’s on personal messengers such as Skype/yahoo etc. Keep your personal address completely separate.

Getting your own domain:
 This is also an excellent promotional tool. If you choose to sign up for your own domain please make sure that you also purchase the domain privacy protection offered by your registrar . If you do not complete this step a public search of the domain record will reveal your real name and address.

Wish lists: An incorrect wish list setup can reveal your name and address to anyone purchasing from that list. If it is not possible to ensure this won’t be revealed in the setup of that wish list you should only request gift certificates which can be delivered by email. Again keep your personal accounts separate from your performer accounts to prevent mistakes. You can also consider renting a PO box if it is necessary to have a delivery address.

Google Alerts:
 Setup a Google alert at http://www.google.com/alerts for your real name to see how often it is mentioned online as a safety measure. You can also setup an alert for your performer name(s) to monitor the success of your promotional efforts.

Audio: Performing with sound is a good thing to maximize your tips, but be careful if you receive a phone call during your show. Please either mute your microphone or take the call to another room to prevent everyone in your room listening in to the call.
