Can You Share Your webcam Photos With Complete strangers? No, You Can’t!
Can a VPN provide me the protection that I need from Internet dangers like Camsurf? The short answer is “yes”. There are so many countries all around the globe affected by this worldwide regulation of internet websites and hence Camsurf is severely restricted in most of these countries. Countries such as Iran, Iraq, UAE, China has banned Camsurf completely and if you live in these countries, the only way to access it by using a virtual private network (VPN) or tunneling the IP address through other country’s computer.
On the other hand, if you use your PC at work, you might be able to get access to your own Camsurf account, but you can only do limited functions on it. For instance, you can view your uploaded pictures but not edit them. You can share pictures with others, but you cannot add music to it nor can you do any video recording. It means that you can only see your photos on your PC and you can’t manipulate them in any way. In fact, there is no other way for you to get access to your own Camsurf account other than paying an annual fee of $50.
A way around this ban by using a virtual private network or a virtual private server is to download the software required for your PC to run a video chat program such as Skype. This software allows you to chat with other Skype users who are located anywhere in the world and as long as you are connected to the Internet, you will be able to have a video conference with them for free. Moreover, you can invite your old and new friends through Skype and you can share videos and photographs with them. However, using a video chat program to share your webcam pictures will lead to your account being blocked. Therefore, you cannot use a cam site like camsurf to upload your pictures or movies.
Other cam websites such as adult chat sites have no problems with their clients downloading their software to their computers and then using it to interact with other members. Even if they have a restriction that states “no sex videos”, they will not refuse a client’s request. On top of that, you don’t have to be a member of a particular adult chat site in order to use cam surfing facility. All you have to do is log into a free account with an adult chat site and upload your webcam or other relevant device. In fact, uploading a webcam or any other device to your existing camsurf account won’t even be detected.
However, in case you are caught transmitting or sharing your webcam session to another party, you may suffer the consequences. For example, camsurf chat sites like omega and redorbit do not accept videos or photographs transmitted by means of webcams. Similarly, many instant messaging services do not allow their users to make use of webcams while chatting. This means that if you are chatting with your friends via an instant messenger like MSN Messenger, you can’t use your webcam to take a picture or show somebody else your crotch.
So basically, you can only enjoy the benefits of cam surfing with someone you already know and trust. If you want to meet complete strangers who might be posing as people you know, it would be best if you used a different method of communication. It is not recommended to disclose your email address on sites like camsurf or chat roulette sites. It is also highly prohibited to give your personal information to complete strangers over the internet. Only use sites that are 100% safe for your personal information.
