    Asking this question is like saying “is the internet safe to use” well the answer as always will be it depends.

    Internet Protocol Television or IPTV for short is a technology that allows you to stream content on your devices.

    To be able to stream IPTV you will need at least 4 parts.

    – Internet connection
    – Compatible device.
    – IPTV Player ( an App that you download on your device like the YoutubeTV app )
    – An IPTV subscription.

    The weak part of these four is the IPTV player, you shouldn’t go out there and download any app you found available online. There is a high chance to find a hacked one with some malware.

    Always download apps from official app stores like Google Play, Apple App Store, Amazon App Store, and Windows…

    If you encounter a case where you need to sideload an app, make sure to verify that the file is safe. And always refer to the source for downloading. By the source, I mean the official website of the app and not random blogs online.

    If you’re not sure, you can scan the IPTV player APK file using your antivirus software or by uploading it to

    This way you ensure you’re getting a clean file to install, but most of the time when following a tutorial from a well-known blog or a YouTuber you can expect to get the original file.

    Installing a compromised app is not the only danger that you should be aware of, getting the IPTV subscription from a reputable provider will make sure you’re not sharing your information with the wrong party.

    Always search for the legal and well-known IPTV providers, most of them will give you their app to download which is most likely already available on official app stores like the ones we mentioned above.

    Good examples of these IPTV providers are Netflix and YouTube TV…

    But some of them will offer you the option to use third-party apps, like IPTV Smarters, Stremium, Tivimate…

    In this case, always do your research on that service and don’t risk your information with shady providers no matter how appealing their offer might seem.

    Having PayPal as a payment method is a good sign that gives you an extra level of protection.
