Common infection symptoms:
  • Annoying Pop-up's
  • Shows commercial adverts
  • Connects to the internet without permission


If you want to play ArcadeRoyal Premium games, you will have to install an application that will provide you with the irritating ads while visiting arcaderoyal.com or playing games there. At first, a few premium games in exchange for some ads might seem like a great deal. However, after reading the software’s Privacy Policy, we found that the ads belong to unreliable third parties. Also, it clearly states that if you enter these third-party websites, there is a chance they might collect your private information or infect your computer, provided the site has malicious content inside. Seems to us there are other more reliable websites with free games, so there is no need to risk your privacy or computer’s security. We would advise you to delete the program from your system and if you need any assistance, check the removal instructions available below the text.

Most of the users come across the application after visiting arcaderoyal.com, the official ArcadeRoyal website. Still, it is possible it entered your system bundled with other software. In this case, you might have recently installed a free game or another kind of a program from an unreliable web page. If you rushed through the installation wizard’s steps, you might have missed the suggested application and accepted it by mistake.

Even though most of the games are entirely free, there is also a Premium games section. In order to play these games you must install a program or to be more precise a browser extension, which is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. The extension will be responsible for collecting information about your browsing habits and displayed ads. Meaning, the program will gather your search keywords, lists of visited pages or clicked ads. It will do so that it could show you targeted advertisements, which should be more tempting to click on.

What’s more, advertising will be displayed through “in-text, pop-up/under, transitional, shopping and/or banner ads.” Also, it will always have the ArcadeRoyal brand and will be clickable. At this point, we came to the main problem with these pop-ups. They would redirect you to a website related to the shopping offer, but some of these sites could be harmful to your computer. They belong to third-parties and the application’s creators neither review nor can they guarantee the legitimacy of such websites. Therefore, the ads could lead you to sites that distribute unreliable or malicious software, promote fake products, etc. It is hard to identify which ad could redirect you to a dangerous site, so it would be advisable to avoid it if possible.

Furthermore, ArcadeRoyal states that their “software does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information” unless you provide it yourself while contacting the creators, but they do warn you in the Privacy Policy about third-party websites collecting such data. Also, they state that “If you click through to any of these third party web sites, our Policy will not apply to your use of, and activities on, those third party sites.” As a result, they do not take any “…responsibility or liability for your visitation to, and the data collection and use practices of, these sites.” In other words, you are solely responsible for any harm, including privacy violation that could result from your clicking on the ArcadeRoyal ads.

In conclusion, ArcadeRoyal allows you to play a few games, but, in exchange, you have to keep up with the annoying and potentially harmful ads. Also, as you click on these advertisements, you generate money for program’s creators. If you think about it for a minute, it does not look like a fair trade. Probably, you could find similar games to these so-called premium ones on the Internet. The best solution here would be to erase the application from your system as it is the only way to get rid of the ads. Do not forget that if you require some guidance in the removal process, you can find our step by step instructions just a little below the article.
