How to Choose Safe Adult Video Downloads
Downloading adult videos from the Internet is probably the smartest way to indulge in them. After all, what is it that we cannot do online nowadays? But even with the convenience of downloading adult videos, the risk of malware is a reality. What can we do? Fortunately, we can minimize the possibility of our computer getting infected just by being a responsible Internet consumer.
First off, remember that downloading is not the same as streaming. If you’re streaming your adult video, that means you are watching it on the website of the provider itself, and in real time. Downloading is actually saving the file into your own computer. 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 video download source.
This part is usually common sense. If you’re getting your file from a popular company, such as Amazon or Windows, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get 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. Consider all the clues.
3. Look at the size of the file.
Too small means it’s not what you’re looking to download. Most probably it’s junk, or yes, a tiny chunk of malware.
4. Keep your eyes peeled for file extensions like .exe, .bat, .pif, etc.
If you download something with any of these, you could be all set for malware infection once you click the file. To be safe, never proceed without first running your video file under a malware checker.
Safety Pointers for File Sharing
If you must use file-sharing software, make sure you pick safe software and use it correctly. Never install a file-sharing application unless you have checked it using anti-malware software. If you have the money, buy a premium subscription to substantially lower your risks of malware infection. Download the software only from an authorized reseller’s website, or better yet, from the manufacturer’s website.
Note that adult videos have become immensely more popular over the last ten years, owing to the advantages offered by technology. While there are many safe providers out there, the cowboys have not exactly left the picture. So before you click that button to download or share adult videos, remember these pointers.
