Skype banning accounts because of SESTA? How to protect your account with Skyprivate

Everybody that is using Skype for personal and professional activities is now interested if Microsoft/Skype will start banning their account if you do any sexy video calls.

We are trying to assure you that if you prepare yourself a bit, you can stay safe and not be affected. We start by explaining the context but if you just want to skip to the part of how you can protect your Skype account and your list of Skyprivate customers – go to the last paragrah.

 

 

  • Why Skype and many other major services like Reddit and CraigList are now banning anything that is related to legal “adult entertainment”?

Because of SESTA.  Because U.S.A. politicians, in their attempt of controlling sex trafficking (that is something illegal) created  collateral damage for the legal acting adult-industry businesses and any american user-generated online platform like Reddit and Craiglist.

Because now any american website has a liability for ALL the content that is found on its servers. This means that if somebody uploads a content that is illegal (minors, sex trafficking, etc) on Google Drive; now Google Drive is exposed to a very big legal risk; and not just the person that posted that content online.

To protect their own businesses you can see 2 types of reactions:

  • some companies just closed down their entire services/categories used by individuals (like CraigList did for example) or
  • updated their TOS (terms of usage of the service) to allow them to INVESTIGATE and then BAN the account holder and his content.

 

  • What did Microsoft/Skype say and what will they do?

Microsoft/Skype reaction was to update their own ToS: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/servicesagreement/upcoming.aspx

What they did was to modify the terms so that they have the right to investigate your account and content when you are flagged (by other users or algorithms – maybe).  In an interview by The Register A Redmond spokesperson sent the following answer:

We are committed to providing our customers with safe and secure experiences while using our services. The recent changes to the Microsoft Service Agreement’s Code of Conduct provide transparency on how we respond to customer reports of inappropriate public content.

The keywords here are : “customer reports” and “public content”.

 

  • What Microsoft/Skype can technically do and how does this influence the work of Skype cam-girls?

We expect that Skype will add new methods for its own users to report other Skype users. We know that Skype video/audio calls & text are encrypted but not yet end-to-end encrypted. This means that people can not access the content of your video/audio call but Skype can investigate and find on its servers when and for how long you had skype calls with another users. And until end-to-end encryption will be available by default, Skype can access a skype video/audio conversation if they start to “listen” from the start of the call (this means that you were reported and they are listening to you in particular. We assume.). We also expect Skype – considering the NSA scandal from the past –  not to start to record billions of skype to skype call-hours on its servers, because technically and business wise  this does not make sense.

In a nutshell this means that we do not expect many things to change for Skype and its users – technically. Just that they are covering themselves legally and upgrading the reporting mechanism.

 

 

  • How can you protect your Skype related cam-girl business? What can you do ?

Before May 1st nobody can predict how Skype platform will react and what will be the impact of any new change. But if you are a Skyprivate.com cam girl that is building a strong business using Skype you have at least the following back-up for the worst case scenario if you get your Skype account banned:

  1. be sure you have a skyprivate.com account if you are not registered already – because all the payments, transactions and history of your calls with paying customers are saved on our own servers and Skype can not delete/ban this information. We are not an american company and we are adult friendly.
  2. be sure that from time to time you also do a back-up of all your own skype contacts. you can see a tutorial about exporting your skype contacts here. The list of the contacts can be imported in any new skype account you want to create in the future.
  3. even if you skipped step no. 2 above, in the worst case scenario where your skype account gets banned by being reported, you can create new skype account and then change your username (Skype ID) in your Skyprivate account
  4. as an extra safety measure you should set in your Skyprivate account to not have your Skype ID publicly displayed in your profile. This way, only members that are premium and have credits can see your skype ID. This translates in lower chances in having your skype ID reported by freeloaders to Skype.

 

In conclusion we say to all our models that use skype for live-camming:

Do not worry too much about the new Skype terms if you keep doing legal activity, if you do not share your skype ID all over the internet publicly, if you do a back-up of your contacts and if you’re using Skyprivate for billing.

We at Skyprivate, do not expect many things to change for Skype and its users – technically. Just that they are covering themselves legally and upgrading the reporting mechanism.

 

 

We will update this article after May 1st with any developments about this matter.

Cam Site TubeCamGirl.com is the Latest to Integrate Skype Pay-Per-Minute

SkyPrivate PRO announced today they have integrated with the cam site TubeCamGirl.com, who becomes the first independent cam site to take on Skype Pay-Per-Minute from SkyPrivate PRO.

Alex Bluck, SkyPrivate CEO said “In the next few months more and more cam and pay sites will be offering the Skype Pay-Per-Minute option we are licensing at SkyPrivate PRO. We are happy to be working with cooperative partners like TubeCamGirl.com, where the integration took place in less than a week”.

The TubeCamGirl CEO said “In my 12 years in the cam business, I’ve seen only 2 real innovations. The first were free shows crowd-funded by member tips, from Cam4 and MyFreeCams. The Second was SkyPrivate. We’ve used both of these innovations to make our site better.”

SkyPrivate PRO is the industry version of SkyPrivate, the only cam platform that uses Skype Pay-Per-Minute technology.

TubeCamGirl.com is allowing its members to use their credits for either traditional cam shows or for time on Skype. So like all SkyPrivate PRO partners, they keep control of their money flow and their members at all times.

SkyPrivate Pro partner sites, whether they be live cam or pay sites, have the option of using their own billing from CCbill, Epoch, Verotel etc or having SkyPrivate PRO handle it for them.

How to install and use the SkyPrivate Mac Plugin

Once we launched our SkyPrivate Mac plugin, we noticed that our FAQ section didn’t had a tutorial yet on how to use the plugin, so I’ve just made it today. 🙂
First, go to your SkyPrivate account in https://accounts.skyprivate.com/ and click on “Download Skype Plugin”.

Click in the Apple Mac logo and the download will start immediately.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.35.28

Drag the SkyPrivate App Icon in the Applications folder.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.35.56

Open the Applications folder and proceed with the installation (double click on it).

^9A6DFD163D7CF7E4C34CF5DCFACC7582F52CBEE272F02084FD^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

Click on “Open” to accept the installation setup.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.36.22

After the installation is complete, select to “Allow this application to use Skype” and then click on the OK button.

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.36.37

You should see the Plugin running in the menu bar. Make sure that you’re also logged into it with your username as shown in the example. Also make sure that your Skype ID is the same as the SkyPrivate Username in order for the plugin to work.

^646EA4B4A97FE3EF0DC55502993452CE6F526C569C69BF52D5^pimgpsh_fullsize_distr

When a member tries to call you, the plugin will show if he is or not a SkyPrivate member and if he is or not able to pay.

Example of a caller who is registered on SkyPrivate and who has money in his account:

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.46.22

If you’re not identity verified yet, the member will need to approve the payment separately. This is what the pop-up message will show

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.46.49

After the payment was approved, you will start to charge him every minute as shown bellow:

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.48.53

And after one minute (we had the price of $1/min)

Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 13.49.54

That’s how it works. In case you need help with something related, you can look in other questions in the FAQs or e-mail us at support [at] skyprivate [dot] com. You can always add us on Skype at: skyprivatesupport to have a close contact.

ModelCentro (free personal website for models) is now integrated with SkyPrivate

ModelCentro Announces SkyPrivate Integration

ModelCentro, a hosted paysite CMS platform for creating and managing fan membership sites, has partnered with SkyPrivate to offer models an additional way in which to connect with their fans. SkyPrivate is a Skype plugin enabling models to receive pay-per-minute calls via Skype in order to interact with their members.

As ModelCentro continues to flourish, a reliable communication tool such as SkyPrivate is a necessity for those models who wish to offer a more intimate one-on-one experience with their fans.

 

“SkyPrivate is a great way for models to make even more money,” said Stan D’Aman, ModelCentro’s CEO. “We’re happy to team up with the provider of such a lucrative opportunity for our models.”

“We’re focused on becoming THE pay-per-minute payment system for independent web cam models but we know that a professional model needs a full toolbox to make big money. We want to integrate and be complementary to many other tools that models use. Starting with the integration into the ModelCentro platform is the best first step we could take. This partnership will give to our models a central location on the Internet – their own personal website – which is an additional tool to monetize their fan base.” added Alex, SkyPrivate’s CMO

This 2-way technical integration of the 2 systems allows models to automatically display their personal ModelCentro website in the SkyPrivate profile page so that Skyprivate customers will visit the model’s personal website and sign up for a membership. At the same time models can link their Skyprivate profile into their ModelCentro site so that their visitors can see the model’s pay-per-minute offer details.
