Does viewing or registering for an account, a free account on these movie streaming sites give us any risk, like security, protection, or infection risks?  I found a couple of movie streaming sites offering free account registration to watch movies for free, but I wonder how safe is this/these?

Generally, you should avoid registering for this type of websites. Also, try not to click on their ads or download anything from them.
Just watch the movies/TV series without registering an account. :)

If you do register you can expect constant flow of spam emails containing questionable links and attachments. 

 

You could always give it a go using a dummy email address.

 

As long as you don't click or open anything you should live. But as said above. It's best to avoid these things altogether. You never get anything truly for free. Apart from in hotels but I think taking the lampshades and the pillows is technically classed as stealing, but that won't stop me!

LOL! Have you watched that episode of Friends when Ross and Chandler filled their bags with hotel-stuff such as the batteries from the TV remote control in order to make a return on investment, haha...:lmao:

Mostly on these types of site if they aren't getting revenue from you they get it through advertisers. Meaning they advertisements are what you have to worry about.
