Europe bans the sale of Box TV containing IPTV applications such as Mobdro…
Until some time ago, we could buy Box TVs imported from China on European marketplaces with pre-installed IPTV streaming applications such as Mobdro, Filmon TV, Teledunet, Ororo TV … It's over now because of the risks posed to their users by such applications.
Just for Mobdro, we could read on the 01net site information that it would automatically transfer the name and password of the home Wi-Fi network to a server in Indonesia. In addition, it would behave like a Trojan horse and allow a cybercriminal to pass commands through the streaming stream.
However, these boxes remain purchasable in Europe via import sites for Chinese products such as AliExpress for example at the risk of having the gear confiscated at customs in the event of an inspection.
Mobdro for PC or Mac is it possible?
Please note that Mobdro was only developed for Android. It is therefore only possible to download the Mobdro APK compatible with an Android system. I specify this for security reasons because some sites offer to download PC or Mac versions of the application but these are only clones which can be dangerous ... More dangerous than the official application which, like you can read it below, would contain malware.
On the other hand, it is quite easy to install the Mobdro IPTV application on a PC using an Android emulator such as Bluestacks . Once the emulator is installed on the computer, it is easy to install the Mobdro apk and run it under Windows for example.
So, do we install the Mobdro APK?
To believe this American Youtuber and blogger ( docsquiffy.com ), Doc Squiffy, it is better not for 3 reasons that he evokes in this video below:
- access to our data on the smartphone (or tablet) which has nothing to do with IPTV and which can be sold without our knowledge,
- the risk of using our CPU / GPU to mine cryptocurrency without our knowledge,
- tracking our location, which is in principle useless for an IPTV app as it does not even use this data to offer geolocated content.
