Made a search on pornhub and now worriedWatch
This just happened to me for searching ‘omegle’ which is in NO WAY relevant and my anxiety is insane right now but realistically neither of our searches are related to anything illegal or disgusting and authorities must understand these things just happen and they don’t have the time to go scanning through content warnings. Im 90% sure its distribution, downloading and actually watching it that gets you in trouble not closing a tab from a warning of potential content. Saying that, I will continue to panic non stop for the next month. We’re in the same boat at least.
This just happened to me today too, cause the word ‘young’ was in search (same as you, college stuff etc I’m looking for) now I’m super scared and paranoid. I x’ed out of the tab straight away and haven’t gone back in since. It’s been a month for you, has anything happened ?
Has anything happened as a result of this - similar thing happened to me when I typed older couple younger girl - completely innocent meaning middle aged couple and 25 year old girl etc. Now I have so much anxiety
I typed “Omegle” which has no correspondence to wanting to see sick stuff and got the same warning. 5 days have past and nothing has happened to me. I also have really bad anxiety, just try and make a better worded search In future.
That message was fake. Designed to scare you into avoiding illegal content.
The Police look for patterns of behaviour over the long term from Pedos. So, if a user happens to see illegal content once or twice inadvertently, just close the page and delete browing history or better still, report it, if kids are involved or excessive violence is shown.

Just remember, those who look at illegal content in long term will get caught. Illegal content is particularly widespread watched by highly intelligent men like scientists, IT experts, business owners etc... who have a greater capacity to fantasise.
