Step 1

How to determine the safest site


Determining the safest site to download music includes certain careful steps. First of all, you need to comprehend how these sites work. Majority of music download sites are based on a P2P network. Well, P2P is a network standing for peer to peer network. This often means that people in the world are uploading their music and songs on websites so other users can download it. Therefore, if the music files they are uploading are infected with harmful viruses, then that viruses are downloaded to the free music website to you. Hence, people who upload music may have no idea about their files are infected and the downloader also won’t know which files has been infected. There are also some fraud people uploading such infected files deliberately. Hence, how can you determine your downloaded music files are virus-free?


Since you know that protected, P2P music download websites don’t exist, what safety measures can you assume to make your online music search friendlier?

  • If you are happened to download music and songs that are doubtful, never click on the run or open option. If you do so, your entire system will be infected. What you must do is click save, scan with your anti-virus software, and wait till it finds viruses that exist in the file. Once your scan came back with ‘No’ results, enjoy your music to the fullest.
  • While downloading music files, remember to avoid downloading wacky titles. For instance, if you want to download Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ then you should download precisely that ‘Thriller’. Avoid downloading Thriller 1.2 or Thriller 1 as these files could certainly be a virus.
  • A normal mp3 song file size is around 6 MB and this is about a 4.5 minute song. Therefore, if you find any songs way off the 6 MB size, then stay away from it.
