The Safe Alternative To Screencast-O-Matic

Warning: using Screencast-O-Matic may leave your system vulnerable to hackers.

Many YouTube users are using a “Screencast-O-Matic”, a screen recorder which works in the web browser and on the desktop.

Unlike Ezvid, Screencast-O-Matic is not free.. it costs $15/year for the full version.

But this isn’t the real problem. The real problem is that Screencast-O-Matic relys on Java, which is a plugin for Windows which will allow hackers to easily take control of your computer and steal your personal information:

So. Here is what we recommend.

1. Immediately uninstall Java. Here is how to uninstall.

2. If you like using screencast-o-matic, wait until they release a new version which does not require Java. You might want to sign up for their mailing list.

3. In the meantime, try Ezvid to record your screen instead!
