Is MovieBox safe

What is MovieBox Pro and why is it unsafe?

MovieBox Pro is a video streaming service primarily developed for mobile web and app. The app was created as a clone of Showbox and allows users to stream movies and shows for free in a web browser or MovieBox Pro mobile app. It's the best alternative to subscription-based video streaming services like Netflix, where it offers audiovisual content for free.

The MovieBox Pro offers high quality content for absolutely free. But at what price is the app safe to use, what privacy issues may a user face when streaming from such a service? Let's look at these in detail.

↑ About MovieBox Pro

  • owner - unknown

  • Domain registrar - Namecheap
  • Hosting - Cloudflare CDN

The site owner (s) has / have made a private registration to hide his / her identity. The site is hosted on Cloudflare and uses a CDN network to deliver the content faster. Many companies have sued Cloudflare for providing hosting services to piracy websites. However, Cloudflare said that revoking CDN hosting for such websites won't stop piracy as the websites may switch to a different DNS network.

“If CloudFlare's services were complete, these websites, which are not available to the allegedly infringing websites, would continue to exist and the violations would continue unabated. The websites only load a little slower and are more prone to hacking, "said Cloudflare in a court document [PDF]".

↑ The privacy policy for apps is misleading

I know for sure that you may not have read the privacy policy of the service, so I did it to dig up a few lines for you to think about. The privacy policy should be read by every user, especially in the case of such an illegitimate streaming service. MovieBox Pro has a very crowded and misleading privacy policy.

↑ The platform calls itself a web and email hosting service

1.1 MovieBoxPro offers customers a variety of services ranging from hosting and website services (including shared, VPS and dedicated hosting, WordPress hosting, remixers, email hosting (the "Hosting Services")) to the cloud -Services (DreamObjects and DreamCompute) range. including the “Cloud Services”) and Domain Registration Services (the “Domain Registration Services”).

This is a serious problem, so take into account the type of content the service is serving. The platform doesn't mention anything about streaming movies or hosting media files, it tags itself directly as a web hosting service, which is a serious red signal
