Is the Wish App Safe to Use?
Although Wish retailers offer incredible prices (and incredible products), Wish App is completely legal as an app and an online seller. That means your $0.50 earbuds will be shipped to your home, but they may or may not work. But hey, it's only $0.50, right?
While it's a legitimate site that you can use to safely buy online, that doesn't mean there aren't any knockoffs. Just use common sense - you should be skeptical when you see a designer handbag for only $20.
In addition to the risks of counterfeiting high-profile listings, you should also be aware that some of the items you find on Wish are risky purchases. For example, electronics may be poorly manufactured or clothing may not fit. However, items such as notebooks, art supplies, trinkets and other items are surprisingly priced.
Just like the old saying: "you get what you pay for".
Want to steal my information?
So far, we've answered the question "Is Wish APP legal" with a resounding "sort of." But it's not quite the same question as "Is Wish a trusted site?" After all, you might be reluctant to enter your credit card information into a website that sells watches with straps for $1.
In fact, Wish app is as safe as any other online retailer. There's always the potential for a website to be hacked, and Wish is no exception. Worried about data breaches? Wish itself does not steal your information.
If you're concerned that Wish APP is collecting too much information, this may indicate that you should be concerned with basic computer security hygiene issues, such as how often you clear your cookies and what browser you use to visit sites you're not sure about.
