Pornhub to shut down for failing to maintain safety of its users

Pornhub has agreed to a $5 million settlement with the Federal Trade Commission over the alleged unlawful marketing of sexual content on its site.

The FTC announced its investigation into Pornhub’s business practices after an investigation by the Department of Justice.

The agency concluded that Pornhub misled consumers about the accuracy of the content it posted and its use of the “bait-and-switch” tactic, which involves using deceptive marketing tactics to entice people to buy products or services without them actually purchasing anything.

Under the settlement, Pornhub will shut down all its adult-oriented sites, including the adult-focused site r/porn, and will require users to pay for any subscriptions.

It will also pay $5.5 million in fines and reimburse users for the cost of removing Pornhub from their shopping cart.

In addition, PornHub will suspend the sale of Pornhub-branded products and will remove all advertising from the site, which it claims is a violation of its terms of service.

The settlement will also include a $100,000 prize for a first-time Pornhub customer who signs up for a trial of the service.

Pornhub is expected to pay the award to the FTC within 30 days of the settlement’s filing.
