About 247vidz adware

If you take a look at their official website at www.247vidz.com, you can see that the company behind this malware is Top Media Corp LTD, registered in Cyprus. This company is described as content media agency and obviously this add-on is just a tool to promote their products and build bigger audience. While this do not sound as a malicious feature, the tool itself is illegal. You are probably aware of a fact that watching movies and TV series online is a huge violation of copyrights.

247vidz virus

247vidz is described as a platform, network like Netflix. Although, we highly doubt that this network has rights to stream content. We have discovered that this service is paid, yet the price of subscription is unknown. You are offered to start a free trial and give it a try. After the trial is over, you will be asked to pay. Premium subscription should allow you to download or view movies online on demand. It will also remove any ads regarding their content and provide accessibility from various platforms.

Why this service is tricky? While signing up for a trial, you will be asked to add your credit card information. When the trial is over, subscription fees will be charged from your account from your account automatically, without even warning you about that. They failed (or did it intentionally) to state this fact, so it can be really frustrating. In addition to that, trail period is only 5 days, so a lot of users can fall for this trick. They provide information about money refund policy, but we doubt that this would actually happen.
