Want to share you work with the world but wish you could be a little picky about who’s lucky enough to see your profile? We totally get it, we don’t even want grandma snooping around our IG account!

Good news is, you can be as selective as you’d like and it’s easier than you think.

Once you’ve become a Verified Model on Pornhub, you have the option to block certain countries, American states, and Canadian provinces from viewing your Pornhub and Modelhub profile and videos. Not sure how? Here’s a refresher course on Geo Blocking.

To take advantage of this feature, click on your login menu and scroll down to where it says “Model.” Once you’re on your Model Settings page, click on the tab labelled “Geo Blocking.”

This is where you can select which country(ies) you’d like to prevent from seeing your content. You’ll also notice that the United States and Canada have a +; if you click on it, you can pick and choose which state/province you want to block specifically. The geo blocker works by looking at the user’s IP address to see which part of the world they’re using sites from. While IP addresses can be modified and changed, Geo Blocking is still a useful tool when it comes to privacy.  

 Remember, it could take up to 8 hours for it to take effect once you click Save.

Thx for explaining to us how to select a country and click the save button. With all seriousness though, would you guys mind fixing your website first? I don't know if you're aware but right now pornhub is getting flooded with thousands of bots that promote this one site. It's really nerve wrecking to constantly ban them, yet nobody is doing anything to stop it. It's quite disturbing that we haven't seen a fix on this issue so far!

Nice to read from you, although I don’t know what ya all r talking about, apparently I don’t spend enough time on here Kiss 😘

I agree) the same bot text to comment for a week (the automatic spam filter on the site does not work - although I already clicked about 100 times (complain) and I'm not the only one. PH solve the problem! please

How do you recognize the bots which promote their sites?

NoTabuu 4 days ago

Totally agree! I delete that like every hour! And not only that.Your playlists are messed up again! When I add new video, it is not always shown as the last added... sometimes it shows there older video... with some playlists it is instant.... it shows only some old video as the latest. It looks like PH chooses which videos should be promote more and more visible to everyone...

@Dirtyduchess "pornhubgirlsaroundyou" Go to any high views video, the're all over the place by now. Banning their accounts doesn't help because they reproduce and upvote themselves faster than you can ban them. On any normal site this would have been fixed day one. However, it seems like the staff here is more worried about us "spamming" them with user reports. Obviously, we do that to raise awareness for the issue. This needs a fast fix!

@brett We'll keep sending user reports as long as we're getting harassed by this bot army, it's that simple. This is ridiculous and has to stop. What about putting that link these bots promote on the blacklist? It's not rocket science.

Cedeh 5 days ago

They aren't even honest in this post... To models reading: Geo blocking WILL NOT stop you from being recognized efficiently if you show your face. Your videos still appear in the recommended on other videos not geoblocked, i've been recognized a handful of times because of this. Don't count on geoblocking just play it safe if you aren't prepared to be recognized. And VPNs are increasing in popularity rapidly.

Wish I could say the same. Angry ex-husband might screw up my life. I’m happy with geoblocking. Pity though that it means my friends here also can’t see it. Would be nice if I could give specific people access despite the geoblocking, but I guess that’s a bit too sophisticated

But GEO Blocking is STILL NoT available for Caribbean islands and countries who are engaging in Copyright Infringement Violations and Internet piracy due to the number of free websites which as a model we are supposed to be protected by Pornhub but instead being harassed and abused because there is NO GEO Blocking for these areas like Dominican Republic And other locations in the West Indies ( Caribbean)

MsShynie 4 days ago

Tbh people just be open & honest with others about your career they will find out eventually anyways. It's almost impossible not to especially if you plan to do this on a bigger level. If you want to do this secretly I'd suggest smaller for sale sites. Placing your porn on the biggest platform in the world with hopes noone you know will see it is like walking around naked & not expecting attention. Be apart of the community that fights the negative stigma of the adult industry. #EmpowerEachother

not only opera,posibile to use vpn extension in all browser or to use proxy sites. i use the geo blok for 10 mounts,not 100% safe becouse wen somewane hu qnow you find a video will share wit all friends and me facebook imbox get from zero mesage to 1000 ))

As with any proxy or VPN, it changes you IP address to appear as if you are in a different location. Fortunately very few people use Opera browser.

We have it for our state. We didnt want any weirdos coming up to us in a store. One guy that knows us (and wont identify himself) went out of state and found us. Luckily, he was cool and has ordered a few videos, so it worked out

alicatty 5 days ago

So much easier when you are just open to it lol, either way your video pops up on feeds they just can't watch it... And everyone has Vpns now Now what pornhub really needs to work on is a analytics menu for us like YouTube.. that and a way to deal with spammers and people who dislike your video over and over again

milfingrid 5 days ago

Why just for model program?

MissLina69 5 days ago

What they failed to mention is that your videos will still be available for anyone to see in the playlists and anyone with a link to your video can watch it, regardless of the country they are in. So geo blocking doesn't make you safe if you are expecting that nobody in your country will watch your videos.

brett 4 days ago

They aren't playable in playlists or with a direct video url. It will say "This video is not available in your country"

For non-phones, likely the other end of the VPN will be the location. For most of mine, that's on the opposite coast (US) from me.

Red Fox 4 days ago

And yes, dear PornHub, the girl @James Deen PMV above in the comments wrote correctly - already solve the problem with attacking bots! I'm tired of deleting this spam under my videos, instead of reading wonderful comments from my fans - I see this damn spam. P.S. geo blocking will not help anyone, there is a VPN for this and all users use this function to bypass the blocking.

tsuptsup100 3 days ago

Hi Red Fox! Love your videos. I think this geoblocking is good thing anyway, it needs a bit of "effort" to arrange VPN - if somebody wants to see some certain film, for sure they will find a way though. But for random normal pornsurfer, it will be just "next clip then, please" type of case, and in my opinion this is a reasonable way to avoid 80% of non-wanted views. I dont use VPN, and if something is not visible, I just click the next one then and the previous one is totatlly forgotten.
