Mahjong by Rapid Advance is a browser-based Flash game. But you will be surprised to learn that it is also an adware application. So if you do not want to be nagged by intrusive ads, you should remove this application. It must also be said that the application can collect non-personally identifiable information about you. Do you approve of this? If not, then we invite you to read this full article, which contains a detailed analysis of the game. The article also contains a manual removal guide at the end. So without further ado, let us discuss Mahjong by Rapid Advance.

As the name implies, the game has been developed by a software company called Rapid Advance, based in St. Joseph, Barbados. This is not the first time we have encountered an adware application such as Mahjong by Rapid Advance. Recently, our website published an article about a similar adware program/game, titled Epic War 2 by Rapid Advance. Now, the aforementioned game is distributed via its dedicated website and is featured on various gaming websites. Mahjong by Rapid Advance is also distributed on its dedicated website at, and on websites such as,,, and so on. So we recommend that you play this game on websites other than the developer’s website, because the developer’s website downloads an application that can display unreliable and undesirable commercial ads. Furthermore, the downloaded application will constantly run in the background and use valuable system resources that could be put to better use.

It must also be said that the application has a built-in ability to automatically collect non-personal information about you. It does not pose a threat to your personal security, but, still, we think you would not want any third party to track your browsing preferences. Because the application collects information such as “your domain name; your browser type; your operating system web pages You view; links You click; your IP address; the length of time You use our Site, Services or Applications; your activities on our Site, Services or Applications (including your movement through each); language information; device identifier” (cited in the Privacy Policy), and so on.

The developers use this information to respond to inquiries, assist advertising, tailor content and information, and so on. But that is not all. Mahjong by Rapid Advance can share this information with the company’s affiliates, third-parties, service providers, and law enforcement agencies. Basically, the information can be shared with anyone. So, now the question is: do you endorse such practices? No? Well, in that case you should remove Mahjong by Rapid Advance.

In conclusion, Mahjong by Rapid Advance is an adware application that displays unasked-for commercial content, unjustifiably uses system resources, and collects information about you and shares it with various entities. If you want to remove the game, but you do not know how, please refer to our manual removal guide provided below. It would also be wise to get an anti-malware scanner that would prevent applications such as this from entering your PC.
