Want to Become A Camgirl But Scared About Identity Exposed?

Are you looking into becoming a camgirl, but scared about your identity leaking out? This is a serious issue that everyone getting into the webcam industry must deal with. Even with a stagename you might run the risk of someone recognizing you from real life.

Here’s some tips and tricks that can help you keep your camgirl identity secret:

 

Use A Stagename

This right here is a no brainer. If you’re planning on becoming an adult entertainer of any kind, definitely develop an alias. Make sure to use this name when signing up for any social media networks, accounts, ect. Here’s a guide on picking out an alias.

 

Block Geographic Regions You’ve Lived In

This is another very important step. Most webcam networks allow their models to block specific geographic regions. You should definitely use this feature and block the region you live in, as well as any place you’ve ever lived. This will greatly reduce the chance of running into anybody online that you know in real life. Something that could easily compromise your identity.

Definitely keep geo-blocking capabilities in mind when comparing camming networks.

 

Hide Personally Identifying Details

It’s a good idea to try hiding anything that can be used to identify yourself or location. There’s plenty of no-brainers, such as not giving out your address. But you might want to consider avoiding any stories with details that could be used to identify you as well. For example; Talking about a college class trip to a foreign country might be enough information to identify someone. If hypothetically, it was a trip to the Dominican Republic,  Googling “2015 college trip to the Dominican Republic” might bring up a blog post about that college trip. By looking through the trip pictures and captions, it could be enough to match up a name to a face.

So be careful when telling stories or discussing interests. Conversation and building relationships is a big part of the camming industry, but make sure to be careful what information you reveal.

 

Be Careful With Wishlists

Sometimes wishlist purchases will share shipping information with 3rd parties who might supply it to the purchaser. For that reason, a lot of models prefer to accept Amazon gift cards instead, or tips with an indication of what purchase the tips should go to. Some studios might offer wishlist item forwarding to help protect against potential wishlist address leaks. Some models might also setup a PO box, or have a friend setup a PO box in a different city or state for enhanced security.

 

Fight Against Stolen / Re-Posted Content

Your camming site or site for selling content might have regional blocking capabilities, but if your content is being uploaded to tube sites or other sites, it’s exposed for everyone to see. Pirated content is a huge issue for amateur performers. There’s multiple ways to go about solving it. The first step should be to inform the site you were performing on or selling the content on. Most sites will file DMCA complaints on your behalf. This will save you time, money and from having to reveal your real identity. You can also file a DMCA compliant yourself, or use a 3rd party tool like Cam Model Protection. You can also submit claims to search engines and have them remove the pages containing pirated content from search results.

Watermarking your content is a great way to make it more easily identify as yours. It’ll help in DMCA complaints. It’ll also help as a form of promotion in the interim while the content is being taken down.

Wear A Mask Or Wig While Performing

Obviously the mask works better with fetish content, but there’s tons of vanilla models that also have success with this tactic. It’s possible to change your appearance through the use of a mask or a wig.
