Moreover, there were a range of suspicious behavior from VidMate causing its users to lose money, drain mobile phone batteries, and exposure of personal information.

Allegations Denied By VidMate Spokesperson
However, the allegations were all denied by VidMate spokesperson that it has engaged in suspicious activities.
In a similar manner, a lot of other websites have argued that VidMate APK is safe to use despite the issues stated earlier. One website stressed out that there are doubts about the integrity of VidMate APK because it can no longer be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
The reason behind this is that the app has violated the policy of Google for downloading of videos from YouTube and WhatsApp.
