I have never encountered any problems, but I do keep my anti virus up to date and running at all times, this way if I am taken to a shady site it stops me before any harm can be done.

From what I've encountered, the surveys on the Daily page (where the videos, pay to click, etc are) - those are safe.  I've never had issues with those except trying to qualify.   ;)

The "surveys" from the Free/No CC page - the ones that take you through a series of adds to view before you reach a "completion" page - those tend to be more risky.  When doing those, I strongly recommend making sure you have your virus scanner and firewall definitions updated to be on the safe side.  Most are okay, but once in a while I've encountered an ad on those sites does get infected and tries to pass itself off to you.

If you got a good internet security then you shouldn't have to worried, but the surveys on here are safe and virus free :icon_rr:

I've never had a problem with a virus from any of those sites. But it's still good sense to have a virus scanner running anyway  :)
