Pass and Play

Pass and Play is not the application you should toy with because using it might be dangerous for your PC. The program is classified as adware since its primary and only task is to display ads. In addition, these advertisements promote various third party products and services, meaning that even someone with malicious intentions could be behind a simple-looking ad. If you continue using Pass and Play, there is a chance your computer could catch malware while clicking on one of the shopping offers. We could only recommend you removing this adware before anything goes wrong. In the rest of the article, we will explain to you how it works and why it is dangerous. Also, you can find our prepared instructions for the application’s removal bellow the article.

Regularly displayed ads are the only visible activity of Pass and Play and a rather annoying one, as you will see lots of pop-ups while you search the Internet. Currently, this adware affects just the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. So other browsers like Opera or Google Chrome should not have any extensions added by Pass and Play.

As we have mentioned before, the pop-ups that will appear while browsing could be harmful to your PC. Although the pop-up itself could be harmless, if you click on it, you could be redirected to an untrustworthy website where your computer might be infected with malicious software such as Trojans, viruses or ransomware. These infections could gather your sensitive information, which later would be used to steal money from you or they could simply damage your computer and the files in it without a possibility to recover.

There are many different scenarios how this could happen, e.g. you could click on a fake system notification claiming you need something to be updated; and, as a result, you would download malware instead of the mentioned updates. Also, it is very risky to buy any product from the pop-ups and the sites that they redirect you to. Any of these websites could be a non-existent e-shop and it is difficult to separate them from the legitimate ones as they display convincing descriptions with photos, comments, etc. Naturally, if you pay for a product to a fake seller, you will not receive any goods and the money will be lost. These are only a couple of examples of many possible risks you take while using this adware and so it does not seem worth to keep this application.

Pass and Play is only a clone of many other adware programs such as Bronze Aid, Discovery App, and High Stairs. The method of how they spread is called bundled downloads. It means that when you download one program, you get more applications that are bundled with the first one. Usually, it is possible to see this additional software in the setup wizard. However, if you go with the automatic installation, you lose the ability to choose if you want the other applications to be installed, and that is how they manage to settle in without any knowledge of yours. It is impossible to download Pass and Play on your own from the official site passandplaysoftware.com since there is no download link there, but you can find the Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement. So if you still doubt whether this program could be useful, you should read these documents carefully and see it for yourself that this adware was created only to generate revenue for its originators.

We can hardly image that after all these facts, you could still think of any good reason why you should leave this program uninstalled. Pass and Play is more than a worthless application as it is potentially harmful to your PC. The only logical step would be removing the adware from your system. The process itself is very simple even for inexperienced users, who can easily erase the program while following at our instructions below.
