How to Choose Safe Adult Video Downloads
Downloading adult videos on the Internet is an economical way to indulge in their entertainment. After all, what are we not able to do online in this generation? But even with the convenience of downloading adult videos, the risk of malware is a reality. What can we do? Fortunately, just by being responsible web consumers, we can control the chances of our computers getting infected.
First and foremost, take note that download is different from 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, you can enjoy your adult videos while staying safe by keeping the following in mind:
1. Examine your source.
This could seem hollow at the outset, but downloading from a site that looks too basic, could up your chances of getting a virus, compared to a site that seems like a fruit of the hardwork of dedicated and passionate web designers.
2. Know your video download source.
This part often requires simple logic. 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’re considering a site that is practically unknown, then you have to raise your defenses. Check if other people have downloaded the file. Very importantly, read the comments. Be sharp with the cues.
3. Check the file size.
If it’s too small, then it can’t be the adult video you’re looking for. It’s probably just junk, or yes, a teeny-weeny yet powerful chunk of malware.
4. Keep your eyes peeled for file extensions like .exe, .bat, .pif, etc.
Downloading a file with one of these can set you up for malware infection as soon as you click it. To be safe, never proceed without first running your video file under a malware checker.
File Sharing Safety Tips
If you use file-sharing software, choose safe software and use it properly. Don’t dare install a file-sharing application that you haven’t checked with anti-malware software. Don’t hesitate to pay a premium version to significantly reduce your risks of getting adware or malware. 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 there are plenty of safe providers today, there is no totally ruling out the possibility of meeting a cowboy. So before you download or share any adult videos, keep these tips in mind.
