Gigabytes of data stolen in matter of minutes, when just browsing for music. Uninstalled now. Be careful!

Be careful when using this - has lots of ads and misleading buttons which are also adware.

Para mí es buen sitio. Sin embargo, parece que ahora están sufriendo algún tipo de "ataque". El caso es que hay problemas para acceder.

The thought of making you sign up for social media to download something is absurd. There are better sites out there. Also, if you use an ad blocker, you're forced to wait 1,000 seconds before you can download.

Forces you to sign up for an account, or to use a social media account. TOS does not specify what they can do with your account.

Misleading claims or unethical as offers downloads (you have to click through a couple of pages before this, making it misleading), but then as another person claimed before me, forces you to sign-up via social network ONLY. I don't use these latter services, making it impossible to use the site. Privacy risks because cross-referencing someone's social identity with what files they are downloading is never a good idea for privacy. Poor Customer Experience because it's a worthless design for a file hosting site, on all fronts.

I really wish this site was correctly rated by legitimate users who understand how questionable all the ads on that site are. Don't drink the "it's great" Kool-Aid.

Like all "free" services criminals will use it for Malware and phishing scam or other criminal activity. Spammed links to RAR archives, ZIP archives, PDFs, etc etc are all links to malware. http://www.4shared.com/download/kwjZByzWba/DocumentoArrecadacaoCoc.rar 4shared has been blocked as it represents low value high risk. NEVER trust a spammer NEVER buy from spammers (HIGH fraud risks) NEVER visit spammed web sites (HIGH malware risks)

Once a useful file hosting service, it is now a mess of fake ads, "download" buttons that don't download the file you want but instead crap apps of a suspicious nature, pop-up ads with crap. Oh, and having ot log in with a fb account? Any privacy risks in that, you think?
