Many online streaming apps on the internet are deceiving in nature and they just try to inject malware into your device. These apps ask for permissions which are not required for their normal functioning. For example, apps may ask for contact permissions which of course is not required to stream the movies.

The apps which are not downloaded from reliable sources like Google Play Store or Amazon Store could be potentially harmful and malicious for your phone and also to you as a user by harassing the privacy. So, I recommend you to grant the permissions which you think is best suited for the functioning of the app.

Is ShowBox Legal? Should I Download it?

The legality of the ShowBox HD App depends on your country and also on the material being presented. The App streams movies and TV Shows from Torrents sites and other sources not accepted by studios. Downloading or streaming copyrighted material that you don’t own without permission or paying for it is illegal. There are many alternatives which you can try to gain access to a large amount of media library.

You are downloading the file at your discretion and we are not affiliated with the App or its content in any form. In many countries, there is no regulation on Mobile Streaming. Check your local jurisdictions for more detail.

Many unauthorised streaming services like Pheonix for Kodi and PopcornFlix where shut down due to lawsuits (though they later returned with a different name). The ShowBox is no different but as I said it does not host any content by its own, this is where it works a little different making it less vulnerable for the lawsuits.

The App is in a “non-clear” legal area and could be affected at any time. The App has some legal content too, but much of the programming is labelled as copyright infringement. Basically, the App provides copyrighted material without any authorisation, thus violating the laws.

Will it Cause me Any Trouble?

Streaming illegal content is, of course, a punishable offence. But rules vary from country to country, some states have a very stern legislations while some may have nominal laws. Generally, the government attacks the publishers of the App in an attempt to pull out the root cause.

How to Be Safe?

Said that the App has a lot of programming with copyright infringement under its hood, you may be under the scanner by your government for streaming the content which is not bided by the law. But looking at the nature of the App, there may be very few who could resist themselves from the ShowBox. You can stream safely by using a VPN service. There are a number of VPN Apps and services covering all types of devices.

Will ShowBox Ever Shut Down?

Yes! But not completely. If someone files a lawsuit than of course the Showbox TV will lose the battle very plain. Google and other search engines may be forced to remove the Content from its results. Even the government may impose the restriction on the Sites.

But we know the internet is a big place which cannot be controlled. And the App for sure will boomerang back with different name and logo, again serving millions of users.

    Having the same issue…just downloaded it. Tried to open the app, and it says I have a connection error. My internet connection is strong and connected. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    • John Fingerton says:

      The way to fix it is, restart your fire stick after downloading the app. Once fire stick reboots, goto settings/manage apps/click on showbox them goto clear data. Once you click on clear data you bend over and stick your finger up your butt, then voila, your good to go. What also helps is after you finish the last two steps smell your finger, you can even goto a neighbors house and have them smell your finger as well. I hope this helps!
