Porn thief SNARED by adult site’s genius new ‘fingerprinting’ system that exposes XXX video pirates

A PORN pirate who “stole nearly a dozen adult videos” only has been caught by a genius “fingerprinting” system.

It edits every video viewed by a watcher with a unique hidden ID – and so anyone re-sharing those clips illegally can be instantly caught out.

The system is used by popular XXX site JustForFans, a rival to OnlyFans.

Amateur and professional sex workers upload content to the sit – and can be paid by fans.

But rogue users can steal content and share it elsewhere for free, breaching copyright.

Now JustForFans has caught its first so-called “porn pirate” using its custom “fingerprinting” tech, The Sun has learned.

So how does the fingerprinting system work?

When models upload their clips to the website, the fingerprinting is activated.

Then when a movie is streamed or downloaded, the viewer’s data is embedded in the clip.

According to JustForFans, this data can’t be removed by recording or rescaling.

That’s how the porn thief – who is based in Canada – was caught out by JustForFans.

Importantly, the pirate may have stolen hundreds of clips through his smut-nabbing enterprise.

“He stole at least 10 videos from a model,” said Patrick, a spokesperson for JustForFans, speaking to The Sun.

“And he had subscriptions to at least 50 other models.

“So it stands to reason that he is probably a major source of piracy for all of these accounts.”

The model whose clips were stolen – and whose real name we can’t reveal – said the pirate-busting tech is “reassuring”.

And they added that it helped avoid their clips “turning up in all corners of the internet”.

The pirate has now been banned from using the platform.

And his details have been passed on to JustForFans’ competitors, so they can block him too.
