If you’re an Android or iOS user, you will surely be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding apps that promise to let you download videos from different platforms with ease. Unfortunately, only a handful of these apps really live up to their promise with the best one out there being VidMate.
The app is a favorite among millions of users because of one thing: convenience. With VidMate, you can easily stream and download videos from platforms like YouTube, Facebook and Dailymotion bypassing the restrictions on these websites and having your favorite videos ready for viewing even when you don’t have Internet connection.
VidMate even allows you to watch TV shows from over 200 channels, which add to the experience of using the app. But behind all these benefits, is VidMate a secret threat to your device? Here’s what we know:
VidMate isn’t a virus or malware
Some speculators argue that VidMate is not safe since it’s not available to download on Google Play Store. But the real reason for this is that the app doesn’t meet one of Google’s policies that prohibit the distribution of apps that can be used to download videos from YouTube, which the company also owns.
Other than that, VidMate is relatively safe because it doesn’t modify your system without permissions. This means that the app isn’t malware or virus.
VidMate doesn’t steal your identity
One of the telltale signs of a suspicious app is that you will be required to provide your personal information and even your credit card details before you can use it. But VidMate doesn’t require you to do any of that and guarantees that if you ever need to provide personal information at some point, it will never be distributed to anyone without your consent.
VidMate has millions of downloads
If you need more proof of its authenticity, you have more than 500 million users to do that for you. VidMate is one of the most downloaded apps on both Android and iOS not only because it’s free but also because it is safe to use.
With VidMate on your device, you can easily download your favorite videos with just a few clicks and the app supports most formats and quality options range from 360p to 1080p. And while VidMate has several pop-up advertisements, it doesn’t allow any ads that can slow down its performance or worse, infect its user’s phone with a virus.
VidMate is undeniably one of the most useful apps in the market today. Aside from being absolutely free, the app also brings a lot of benefits to its users by offering them a platform to enjoy their favorite videos online and offline.
VidMate is also one of only a few video apps that support a wide range of formats including MP4, MOV, WMV, MPEG and 3GP. Downloading files is also as convenient as it can get with just a few clicks. Users can even download several videos at once and still use their device during the process.
