As the pandemic devastated sections of the economy, particularly those dominated by women, some turned to livestreaming websites as a strategic and fun option to replenish their bank accounts. Although promoting your profile online is the most effective way to gain new subscribers and members, we can guess that not everyone is 100% comfortable with sharing their identity online. Maybe you want to be a candidate for a VP position and you don’t want your CV misprized, or you fear the bunch of weird psychopaths with obsessive disorders that can track you down. Either way, here is a piece of advice of what, who, why and when to protect your identity as a fellow camgirl.
It’s perfectly understandable that you want to separate your online persona from your real self – good thing that every cam website gives you an array of tools to do that. Although it asks for identification documents, it allows you to choose whatever nickname you want, therefore you are nowhere near obligated to use the name you were born with.
This process is as creative as you take it. What’s your favourite first name? What name do you wish you had? It’s your chance to start from scratch, so don’t treat it as a 5-minutes task that should be done hastily. Choose a nickname that showcases your personality the best – play with it a little, look up name variations and pick the one that has a ring to it, too. Not only it is a good way to protect your real identity, but it also gives you the opportunity to advertise it better in your market niche.
Hide personal information? Check!
Cam websites are not Facebook or Twitter, so sensitive data such as your personal email address or phone number should be anything but visible on your profile. If chat room visitors and members ask for your personal details, lure them by saying that if you do it, your account may be banned and therefore they are going to lose every link they have with you. Keep in mind that on cam websites, you usually have to say where you are from. Pick something generic, like a random state from the USA – and whatever you do, do not disclose the country or city you are from to any member.
Consequently, be conscious of the content you post on your profile feed. Use common backgrounds when you take pictures or videos, such as a forest and your own bedroom – nothing that could identify the city you live in, your cultural background or profession. What happens on cam websites, stays on cam websites and nowhere else.
Hide-and-seek with IP addresses
Let’s get real – there is the probability that your third grade cousin or neighbour visits cam sites religiously. The last thing you wish for is them randomly calling you to say how they caught you in a very steamy moment of your online show. Well, good thing camming websites give you the permission to block whatever countries you want to – heck, you can block half of the globe if you want to.
Livestreaming websites’ first priority is to protect your identity as an online performer by all means. In other words, this restriction acts as a shield when IP addresses from your country click on your profile or chatroom link. Instead of seeing your face and initiating a conversation with you, all they are going to get is a blank webpage. It is even more satisfying (and protective too) than blocking your ex on Facebook.
All livestreaming websites work on the basis of a mechanism which allows you to reinvent your real personality, from A to Z. So don’t worry, you can protect your real identity and keep it out of the way throughout the process. Now go girl and earn plenty of zeros with your online persona.
