Don't want to share your porn? Best check your BBM settings

Sharing option could inadvertently update your status with details of your private viewing preferences.

Do you enjoy indulging in a bit of hardcore porn via your BlackBerry 10 browser? If so, you may want to heed the following guidelines, lest you end up sharing your viewing history in the form of a status update.

AVN reported that Crackberry.com had spotted a potential weakness in BBM, which “has an option to share what music you listen to in the media player as your status update.”

However, with Blackberry 10, any videos played in the browser subsequently activate the media player, meaning that they will also be shared if the feature is enabled.

While Crackberry.com stated that the feature is “disabled by default,” it noted “if you happened to toggle it on at some point, it can of course be disabled if you know where to look.”

So, if you have been watching porn and have not disabled it, it too will be shared in the same way as a music file.

To avoid such an occurence, Crackberry.com suggested that BBM users you complete the following steps before video browsing:

* In BBM swipe down from the top bezel then choose Settings

* Toggle Show What I'm Listening To so it shows Off

* Tap Back to save
