Is Cinema HD V2.4.1 Safe?

We reported in the past that Cinema HD was shut down but it appears there is now a fairly new version floating around which is V2.4.1.

Cinema HD has been the most popular free streaming application for Firestick and Android TV devices.

The new update V2.4.1 provides additional/fixed sources (links) for movies and TV shows.

We’ve received multiple questions on whether this new application is safe to use.

Cinema HD 2.4.1 Legal Ramifications

More than likely, Cinema HD APK was originally shut down due to distributing copyrighted works without consent.

If users are going to use this application, it should only be for streaming movies and TV shows not protected by copyright such as works that fall under the Public Domain.

Public Domain Movies

Public Domain TV Shows

It’s not illegal to stream movies or TV shows that are not protected by copyright.

Cinema HD is Virus Free

The first thing we want to do is scan Cinema HD 2.4.1 for viruses.

As you can see in the above scan, it’s virus-free.

This doesn’t mean that there’s not other funny business going on with this free streaming application.

Original Developer No Longer Involved?

Many times after an application is shut down or abandoned, another developer forks the app and continues to update it.  Sometimes this is done for malicious purposes.

Users need to be extremely careful using free applications that can’t be found in the Amazon App Store or Google Play Store.  Especially those that have been shut down in the past and an imposter has taken control of.

TROYPOINT suggests using Surfshark VPN to protect yourself if you’re going to use applications such as Cinema HD.  Users should also enable Clean Web within Surfshark to eliminate ads and trackers.  See video below on how to do this.

How Does a VPN Protect Me?

A VPN provides you with an anonymous IP Address and encrypts your connection to the Internet so you can’t be identified by the app developer and other 3rd party organizations.  It also prevents your Internet Service Provider (ISP) from logging what you stream, download, or browse online.  When a VPN is active, your ISP can’t see what you’re accessing through the Internet.

Cinema 2.4.1 Member Program

Some may be tempted to enroll into the Cinema 2.4.1 member program.  This allows for an ad-free experience.  Don’t do this.

There are numerous stories about people doing this under the original developer and they never received a key to activate this feature.  I highly doubt that this will work properly.
