Faucets gave me my first cryptocurrency so I can never admit they are dangerous or even risky? There is no risk for users. Users should simply check the website online for virus using sucuri site check before using it.

https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/

If the website redirect you to another page (e.g shortlink) then
1. don't click anything
2. Check the new landing page for virus using sucuri site check.
3. If it is clean, then continue and earn from the faucet.

Some Faucets don't redirect users. I recommend such faucets for users. This Faucets are not dangerous, just use it with caution the same way you would browse a new site.

There is a faucet site that keeps redirecting me and I cant get back to the faucet page. Most of the time it redirects to a page with a big robot that tells me to click. Makes me wonder if the site is set up like that on purpose. They probably used the faucet to lure people there so that the owner can earn from ads. They never have to spend their funds with all that redirections.

Please, I'll advise you not to visit the website again. This is a clear illustration of a spam site, I hope your antivirus software was on when you clicked the first time in ignorance. Please be careful when earning from. bitcoin faucets website. Some are genuine while others are mischievous.
