The allure of becoming a webcam model is understandable; you only have to watch live cam girls videos to see the ridiculous amount of tips they’re getting! The temptation to set up your camgirl profile is almost immediate and you may want to start making some money straight away. However, it’s time to stop and think about your privacy and the technicals bits.
While it may be boring, it’s important to keep your identity and personal information safe and secure – especially as a webcam model. At Off The Record Models – webcam model management, we have put together a list of tips for online safety:
1. Lock Down Personal Social Media Accounts
Do you have a personal Instagram, Facebook and Twitter account that has all your friends and family on? If so, we would advise making your social media profiles private – or deleting them completely.
There is a chance that fans from your live shows could look for these accounts and post photos/videos/screenshots of you. Ultimately, by making your accounts private, it will prevent someone googling your first and last name and will prevent them from seeing pictures of your shows, which may impact on current or future careers – not in online camming.
2. Use a Separate Email for Camming
It’s important to keep your business and personal life separate. Never use your personal email to sign up with cam sites, Amazon wishlists and social media accounts. You never know if an application or website may share your details with your contact list and followers so using a business email can avoid people finding your personal information.
3. Create a cam-related Snapchat and Twitter
For live webcam girls, Twitter is a fabulous way of promoting your live shows; connecting with your fans and building relationships with other camgirls. Also, Snapchat enables you to send photos/videos to your clients (if they pay for it) and post previews of your shows.
We recommend creating a Twitter and Snapchat as a great way to market yourself online. However, make sure you use an online nickname to hide your real life identity and do not include your location in any posts.
