How to Know If You’re Downloading Virus-free Adult Videos
Downloading adult videos over the Internet is a cost-effective way of indulging in their pleasures. 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, just by being responsible web consumers, we can control the chances of our computers getting infected.
First off, remember that downloading is not 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, you can enjoy your adult videos while staying safe by keeping the following in mind:
1. Inspect the source website.
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 whom you’re downloading from.
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’re considering a site that is practically unknown, then you have to raise your defenses. Check whether the file has been downloaded by others. Very importantly, read the comments. Be sharp with the cues.
3. Look at the size of the file.
Too small means it’s not what you’re looking to download. 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.
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.
Safety Pointers for File Sharing
If you use file-sharing software, choose safe software and use it properly. Never install a file-sharing application unless you have checked it using anti-malware software. If you can afford it, get a premium version to considerably minimize your risks of malware infection. Download the software straight from the website of the manufacturer, or at least from an authorized reseller’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 many safe providers out there, the cowboys have not exactly left the picture. So just before you decide to download or share adult videos, remember these tips.
