There are a lot of movie streaming websites online but not all of them are safe to use. Today, we will be reviewing one of the most popular movie-streaming website called Fmovies. We will also tell you about the measures that you should take before visiting any online movie-streaming website. So, let’s start.
If you search Fmovies on Google you will find a number of websites claiming to be the original Fmovies. Some of these websites are really dangerous for your system’s security. Others are just copies created to earn money. That’s why it’s important to know which website is the real one. As of April 2019, Fmovies.to is the original Fmovies website.
What does Fmovies has to offer?

Does Fmovies provide pirated content?
Well, kind of, but not really. Fmovies does not really host the pirated content on their servers. Instead, they provide their visitors with links to other servers that are hosting the pirated movies or tv shows. By redirecting the user to different servers they protect themselves from any kind of legal action. But still one can say that they are promoting piracy and copyright infringement.
The government has finally started shutting down sites like 1movies, primwire, Showbox app that are using similar tactics. Sites like Fmovies are hosted offshore so even when the website is taken down the owner remains safe from any kind of legal action.
Is Fmovies Safe?
The real Fmovies website looks pretty safe. The problem lies in the ad network they are using. Fmovies uses ad networks that are similar to what you encounter on Torrent websites. Those ad networks can contain links to explicit content, malicious content, and adware. So, it is highly advisable to have a good antivirus installed in your system before you visit these websites. Having a VPN with an additional firewall will protect you from most kinds of threats. You can also try ad blocker plugins that will block all kinds of fishy ads and popups.
It’s important to keep in mind that by watching/downloading movies from sites like Fmovies you are also guilty of infringing copyrights. Users that are found guilty are warned, and in rare cases, legal actions are taken against them. There are multiple legal and safe alternatives to FMovies that you should try.
A large number of users are using and will continue to use Fmovies to watch their favorite movies and tv shows. It’s up to you whether you want to continue or not. So, that’s it for this post on Fmovies. I hope that you learned something new from this post. Stay tuned for more. Thanks for reading.
