How to Choose Safe Adult Video Downloads
Downloading adult videos from the Internet is probably the smartest way to indulge in them. What can you not do online in this day and age, after all? But even with all the advantages of downloading adult videos, the risk of malware is real. It’s inevitable. Fortunately, we can control our computer’s chances of getting infected just by being a responsible online consumer.
First of all, keep in mind that downloading is hardly the same as streaming. If you stream an adult video, you are watching it right from the website of the provider in real time. On the other hand, downloading is putting the file in your own hard drive. Either way, here are nifty ways to keep safe while enjoying adult videos from the Internet:
1. Examine your source.
This may seem a bit shallow, but if you download from a rather basic-looking site, you could increase the chances of a virus being hidden out there somewhere, compared to a site that looks like the work of passionate web designers.
2. Know your webmaster.
This part is usually common sense. If you’re downloading a file from a well-known company, such as Microsoft or Amazon, it’s likely that it won’t contain a virus. If you have a website that practically no one has heard of, then you have to think twice or even a million times. Check if other people have downloaded the file. Very importantly, go over the comments. Be sharp with the cues.
3. Look at the size of the file.
If it’s too small, then it can’t be the adult video you want to download. It’s probably just junk, or yes, a teeny-weeny yet powerful chunk of malware.
4. Be alert for file extensions, such as .exe, .pif, .scr and the others.
If you download and click a file with any of these, you could be a whole wave of malware-induced malfunctions the moment you click it. To be absolutely safe, don’t proceed unless you have run your video file in a malware checker.
File Sharing Safety Tips
If you use file-sharing software, choose safe software and use it properly. Install a file-sharing application only after you have run it under anti-malware software. If you can afford it, get a premium version to considerably minimize your risks of malware infection. Download the software only from an authorized reseller’s website, or better yet, from the manufacturer’s website.
Remember that adult videos have incredibly increased in popularity over the last decade, thanks to the advantages offered by the digital world. While you can find a lot of safe providers out there, you cannot complete rule out the possibility of ending up with a cowboy. So just before you decide to download or share adult videos, remember these tips.
