Is TVTap Safe?

Some versions of TVTap can be unsafe i.e. contain viruses, malware, or use your idle system resources. It is therefore recommended you take extra precautions if you are installing applications from unofficial sources. You should regularly scan your device for anything malicious. One such way of doing this is by using VirusTotal.


Your online activity is open to threats and snooping from your ISP, hackers, or governments. For that reason, a VPN can help to protect and defend you against any attacks. Using a VPN can also unblock access to the internet in countries where the internet is censored and can bypass other geographical restrictions.

In order to stream anonymously, stay protected, and unlock the internet, I recommend using NordVPN.

Is TVTap legal?

Due to the nature of this application, it is impossible to verify if it is indeed legal or not.
