    That is why we want to show you some risks that you can run when watching your games online. Take note!

    Malicious codes

    These codes are very dangerous. In this case, these are hidden behind the alleged players and have extensions that seek to be installed surreptitiously on the device, with the aim of accessing your personal information.

    Campaigns for information theft

    Some websites have created campaigns that seek to redirect users to other pages where they must complete a survey to participate in a raffle for a mobile device. Be careful! Once the survey is completed, they request a payment using a credit card, stealing data from it.
