A longtime feature of the internet, pornbots are particularly prevalent in online communities right now, and have a large presence across all social media platforms.
[In one highly upvoted thread on Reddit’s r/NoStupidQuestions] subreddit from April, users complain about the high numbers of bot accounts following them on platforms like Instagram and Twitter, linking out to adult content or fake accounts on adult creator platforms like OnlyFans.
These accounts are also known to send direct messages to users across all platforms, finding ways to slip through the cracks of automated filtering.
Many women face the problem of unscrupulous bad actors taking their photos and using them to set up fake OnlyFans accounts, which are usually advertised through pornbot comments on social media. VICE reported that social media users around the world have fallen victim to similar scams — many only finding out when friends and family tell them about seeing the bots in question.
