PornHub, one of the largest adult entertainment sites in the world, will now take steps to tackle revenge porn. The company has introduced a new online submission form which will make it easier for victims to identify unauthorised uploads of pornographic content featuring themselves and can have it flagged for removal as well.

Revenge porn, an instance where a person uploads pornographic content of someone, is a serious invasion of privacy. The company has described the new form as a "preemptive strike" against what's become a growing form of online harassment.

In conversation with The Verge, Pornhub vice president Corey Price stated, "It is vital that we continue to make our community feel safe. We want all Pornhub users to know that this new reporting process is for their security and peace of mind first and foremost."

According to the report, PornHub has around 60 million visitors a day and it claims complains in relation to revenge porn have come down by about 38 percent in the last two years. In the past, victims could only send removal requests via email, but now the new process hopes to bring about some change.

According to an earlier report, Pornhub conducted the study of its mobile users to find out what they looked at online. It found that users of the two operating systems have clear differences in what they were looking for.

The study found that iOS users tend to spend 8 minutes and 40 seconds on site when they visit it and tend to leave after just 9.8 page views. They view videos in the Bondage and Fetish categories 105 per cent and 66 per cent more than Android users, who appear to prefer ebony and cartoon-themed content significantly more. Android users spend an average 10 minutes per visit and peak out at 10.9 page views.
