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!

NoTabuu 10 months 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!

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 10 months 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

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.

alicatty 11 months 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

Geo blocking was always useful on cam! Thanks for explaining it!

unknown 11 months 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 11 months ago

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

I'm getting the geo country block when I try to edit my own videos... Any explanation?

JustUs10Org 1 month ago

GeoBlocking works great on pornhub.com... BUT does NOT work on any of PH's white label/affiliate sites (e.g. thumbzilla, pornmd, etc.). We can see our content in animated thumbnails on most if not all of these secondary sites, which is more than enough to reveal our identities to the places we've geoblocked. We've contacted support about this and nothing is happening. Please fix this and enforce geoblocking downstream as well!!

doggat 5 months ago

Please change it so we don't get videos suggested if they're blocked in our region. It's really annoying to see something interesting only to click on it and be told it's not available. It's also kinda weird; if someone is worried about a state or country seeing their video, I doubt they'd want whatever's in the thumbnail and preview to be shown either.

Red Fox 10 months 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.

Asian Deepthroat 10 months 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.
