is 4shared.com safe?

Post by SophiaGrace on Thu Apr 22, 2010 1:25 am

like I just created an account there and I'm wondering if it is safe to do that? If i go and download my own files is that safe? Is it a safe internet program?

Hello,

Yes the site is safe and legitimate. If you're downloading your own files then it's also safe but other people's files you download from there might not be.

I would suggest you install WOT. Doc has already linked you to the url where you can check websites. But it is a lot easier when you install WOT as an extension to your browser, you will see whether a site is safe BEFORE you even navigate to it.

Download is here.

nevermind I just had it answered: poor rating may indicate identity theft potential, Internet scams, credit card fraud, phishing, viruses, adware or spyware. An unsatisfactory rating indicates that the site may contain annoying advertisements, excessive pop-ups or content that makes your browser crash.

I did a whois search for 4shared.com from WhoisXY.com and found owner details. It looks good. And i visited the site ScamAdviser.com it showed "High Trust Rating. This site looks safe to use."  So, that site is legit. You can use it.
