How does CrackStreams work?
Since CrackStreams is not an application that can be downloaded from an online store, it has to be accessed through a web browser.
All that’s required is an internet connection and web browser on your internet abled device to access CrackStream live streaming links on the website.
However, it is recommended that safety and precautions are taken to ensure that your privacy is not compromised while accessing these streaming links.
We recommend a good anti-virus installed in your system to protect your PC, or use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to protect your IP address at all times.
Whether you’re using CrackStreams through a TV or phone, VPN has the advantage that it can be used on all digital platforms and is not limited to PCs like certain software.
Here’s how you can access the service on a step-by-step process for different platforms as mentioned:

CrackStreams vs Reddit Streams
Reddit Streams were one of the most sought after streaming links, especially by sports viewers. The main reason was the availability of a variety of content without having to pay for hefty subscriptions.
Basketball, Soccer, Baseball, Boxing, Football, and Hockey were some of the most demanded live streams on Reddit.
However, in 2016, Reddit started receiving a lot of copyright claims due to these live streams over the platform. Due to these continuous copyright claims Reddit decided to shutdown its live streaming service for good in 2019.
Since then people have been reaching out for Reddit Live Streaming alternatives, however, not many had much luck with that. CrackStreams provides a relatably safe, free, and reasonable streaming option available for sports fans.
Is CrackStreams Safe?
A question that is asked by most people; is CrackStreams safe? Well, there’s an answer to it, yes and no.
If you’re using the service without any protection in the form of anti-virus (for PC), or VPN service, then there’s a chance you might get into trouble.
However, if you’re covered by a VPN then you don’t have to worry about it, and yes, that can be perfectly safe for you to access a live-streamed major sporting event on CrackStreams.
Is CrackStreams legal? Streaming pirated content is illegal, but there is some definite legal grey area when it comes to watching the content. Whether one gets into trouble for watching it or not is uncertain.
Since the viewers are not hosting the content streams, they are not subjected to the same penalties which reflect on content piracy.
Bear in mind that CrackStreams is a “free” sports streaming service that streams content for you from various sources. Most of which are not authenticated, and at times, not verified in terms of legitimate licensing for the respective content.
It’s important that one takes all the necessary precautions, in case, if there’s any malign intent by any of the streamers, or any such party involved that might have access to your IP address or other such private information.
Moreover, the site itself also isn’t secured with an SSL like most the high-traffic present day websites are. The good news is you don’t need to enter any of your information to watch the free streams.
The reason for the sensitivity regarding legality of these live streams is piracy. It is a big issue for sporting organizations, and they fight hard to stop it.
CrackStreams – A Community
Sports usually help neighborhoods and communities create bridges together, creating their own unique identity as a separate community. CrackStreams also offers the same experience for sports viewers as it provides more than just a streaming service.
It offers a platform to communicate with fellow sports viewers with a chatroom on the left side of the stream. However, we’d like to give you a heads up since this section may include obscenities that you would rather avoid (trust us on this one).
Apart from the feature of chatting with other sports enthusiasts, there’s also the option to have a Discord server. It is a custom voice/chat room server, creating a service that allows people to form entire community servers based around a single or specific topic.
