If you are visiting porn websites, the American government probably knows about it.

A document released by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals that the National Security Agency (NSA) is collecting information on visits to pornographic sites to discredit inflammatory Muslim leaders.

The Huffington Post published part of the document here.

The NSA may also be monitoring who uses Internet sex sites such as Ashley Madison and Adult Friend Finder. The NSA could use this embarrassing information to pressure individuals into confessions.

The Atlantic is critical of this spying activity:

"If the history of the FBI and NSA teach us anything, it is that officials cannot be counted on to know the difference between legitimate surveillance and abuses of power."

So let this article serve as a warning to avoid pornographic websites.
