For those unknown, Deepfake uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to swap celebrities’ faces into any movie or clip, especially porn videos. With the authenticity beyond your furthest imagination, it makes the viewers unable to differentiate between the true and the fake videos. That’s why it is always amongst lots of controversies since it has just started to draw attention from the netizens.

The reality has proven the bad effects in Deepfake. According to Forbes, editing videos by this kind of technology becomes easier than ever. Those who know a little about technology and media can download and use it.

According to Alex Hawkins, Vice President at a company with the top-world adult website, his company definitely knows all the threats relating to deepfake. And they have made efforts to find out the latest and fastest regulations about this issue.
