Downloading

Another very important part or beeing safe online is downloading.

How do we know its real??

Most people download movies from sites such as 'Pirate Bay' and other sites like that. But once the file is downloaded they dont know what else it has inside.
For a start if you want to download movies see if other people have downloaded this file and also see the forums which in people say their oppinion about the file.

Also you can see if the file is real of fake by checking how big it is. Aproximetly a 2hour movie is about 2GB (depending on the analysis). If the file is less than 1GB or MB it is fake and probably has a virus.

Another way of getting a Virus is the fake programs that give you money or Exp. in games. All of those programs are fake and are just useless also they might even a survey.

Survays

Some files before you download them have survays, supposedly to see if you are a human. Which make you download a file E.g song which you have to pay or or in other accasions you have to insert your phone number. Once you have inserted your phone number you can lose up to 50$ from online lotterys that you never signed up for.
