Of course, accounts from non-official sellers are sold at lower subscription prices than the official price, so it is enough to make prospective buyers tempted.
Besides being cheaper, prospective buyers also do not need to bother to have a credit card that is often used as a condition to subscribe to a streaming platform.

According to cyber security practitioner Vaksin.com Alfons Tanujaya, there are hidden dangers that can lurk when using a platform account streaming through a third party like this.
One of them is a phishing opportunity that is used to steal important user information, such as e-mail, usernames, passwords, and so on.
In a search carried out KompasTekno, usually the seller will ask for e-mail and password for prospective buyers to create a new account.
But there are also sellers who directly provide usernames and passwords periodically to the buyer so they can directly log in to the account that is already available.
In addition, there is another potential that can indirectly threaten, namely credit card data theft (carding).
“If it is not immediately possible (carding), for example e-mail accounts are stolen and used to steal or access other data such as credit card data or other,” Alfons explained through a short message, Wednesday (06/24/2020).
