The developers at Fantastic Tech were honest enough to inform users that the application is ad-supported. It is said that advertisements are needed to keep the converter free. We have heard this all before, and, regardless of the justification for showing the advertisements, the potential threat is still there. It is just the nature of online advertising. Dishonest entities may use a seemingly legitimate application, such as BestVideoConverter, to promote various products. Those products could be anything. In particular, users should be wary of ads that offer to download various system utilities, system optimization tools, registry cleaners, and so on.
