Tip: Clear Your Phone Browser of Porn Sites Before Using Said Phone in News Segment

By: Josh Wolford - February 11, 2014

That’s just a simple tip, guys. If you’re going to use your iPhone to film stock video for a local news segment, it might be wise to make sure your bookmarks and history list doesn’t read “Pornhub Mobile.”

Or, I guess, if you truly don’t care – well, power to you.

A WGN (Chicago) report on a new app called Expunge.io needed some nice stock video of someone accessing the app on their mobile device. The app, which helps people expunge minor offenses from their records, is the work of local high school students.

If only someone would have found an app that automatically clears your browser history for you.

As you can see in the image above, an eagle-eyed redditor caught the errant link, which only flashes on screen for about a half of a second. We found the video and sure enough, this is real. The magic happens at about 48 seconds in. Don’t blink, you might miss it. Just proof that there’s always somebody watching, ready to take a screenshot. If you mess up, you’re going to wind up internet famous for it. Sorry.

To be honest, I’m more intrigued by that other link. What the hell are we all trying to expose? Based on the Pornhub link, I have a few ideas.
