Safe Watch app review, features, and tests. You are here because you tried to download something on Popcorn Time and the app suggested to download Safe Watch – Secure Video Player. Or Maybe someone recommended you to check it out. The article is all about Safe Watch app, its features, and tests.
What is Safe Watch app?
Safe Watch – Secure Video Player is another torrent client like Popcorn Time or BitTorrent. It comes with a free built-in VPN, so you don’t need to install one externally. Now, why Popcorn Time is promoting this app, I don’t know, but sooner or later we will find the answer. The app has 100,000 downloads on Android, and because of Popcorn Time, the app is getting lots of downloads every day.
How does Safe Watch app work?
The app can work with Popcorn Time or alone. In Popcorn Time when you tap on the play or download button, the app opens with the URL and the watch now button. If you have the magnet URL, you can paste that URL directly into the app to download and play videos. The app takes some time to buffer first. Once it is done, the video player comes up with the video. You can see the buffer progress on the progress line.
It’s great when you get a free VPN which can download the torrent files. Safe Watch app comes with a free VPN, which changes your location while downloading. Why is VPN required to download torrents? By default, the app finds the optimal location for you, but if you want a specific country, then you can browse the VPN location menu. A free VPN does not mean that it is the best. To check its speed and location, I put the app on a test.
The test includes the location and the speed test. The app passed the location test as it changed my position to some other country. For the speed test, the VPN enabled speed test was slightly lower than the normal speed, but while downloading the file in the app, I did not see any considerable difference.
