I’ve had more than one client ask me, “Is Putlocker safe?”. Now, come on. What kind of business owner is concerned about Putlocker.
In any case, I have an answer for you.
Is Putlocker safe?
If you really mean to ask, “Can my computer get infected with malware, spyware, adware, and ransomware if I use Putlocker?”, Your answer is “no.” Putlocker videos are known to spread a variety of threats that can seriously complicate your life.
However, you can mitigate the danger of Putlocker by using common sense, installing an antivirus app on your computer, and using an adblocker such as uBlock Origin.
Now, if you’re wondering, “Is Putlocker Safe from a legal perspective?”, your answer is questionable. For the most part, you’re safe from legal problems because you’re streaming the content rather than downloading it.
However, Putlocker can store temporary files on your computer that contain copyrighted material, so you could theoretically become liable to civil and criminal penalties.
Also, Putlocker itself is banned in some countries, so you could put yourself in legal jeopardy simply by visiting a Putlocker URL.
Quick Hint: Beware of online threats while using Putlocker. Any requests to download a file or give a window access to your computer could be malicious. To learn more, read this article at IwantMyVPN.com: “Is Putlocker Safe?”
