How can you tell if a free streaming site is safe?

Asked by SQUEEKY2 (19158points) November 25th, 2019

I found a movie I thought I would like to see on you tube and when I clicked on it they said click the link below set up a free account and enjoy watching movies with us.
My question are these sites safe to use, or does it open you up for virus and other things galore?

Free is usually not free; spam, porn, password stolen . . . !

Yeah I was getting that feeling,nothing in life is free there is always some kind of cost.

If you’re referring to the pop-up with the “YouTube TV – More live TV to love” header:

The “TRY IT FREE” link starts with “https://tv.youtube.com”, so it seems legit. I’d say there’s a chance you’d see some ads if you accessed the service, unless you’re using an ad blocker with your browser.

However, they require a credit card number before you can start the “free” trial, so I also recommend that you decline.
