Upgraded software and better website design during the early 2000’s led to a number of dedicated sex chat sites establishing themselves as big players in the adult entertainment industry.
Technology has continued to drive the market to higher levels as new products and apps specifically designed for use on sex chat sites are now being created on a regular basis.
Users can rate profiles and find potential hook-ups via GPS location tracking. The good news is, this app pulls information from user’s Facebook profiles, so it is more authenticated than other apps.
If you walk in on your partner on their phone and see them immediately shake the device, watch out - they could be using Fox Private Message, which deletes all messages when the phone is shaken.
What’s more, the app shows up in disguise on your phone, and after you add a number as a private contact, any message from them goes straight into the app rather than your usual inbox.
K9 Web Protection, from Blue Coat, is a free utility that's designed to regulate the way your Internet connection can be used.
You have the option of restricting access times, blocking Web sites, and filtering Internet access by URL keywords.
For example, you can play a sound (so that a parent will hear an alert if access is attempted), and there is even an option to completely shut down Internet access for a period of time if someone repeatedly tries to access blocked sites (Figure A).
