PlayPopGames is an application that should enable users play all kinds of games on playpopgames.com for free. In most cases, users install this application themselves; however, it is known that this application might also be available for download on other third-party websites. Such versions might be modified and thus quickly cause harm to the system. Unfortunately, the version that can be downloaded from playpopgames.com is not very decent too. In fact, security specialists even tend to classify this software as an advertising-supported application (adware). We will explain you why it is so further in this article. In addition, we will provide more information on the removal of this piece of software in case you decide to get rid of it after reading through this article.
Even though PlayPopGames is available on the web and anyone can download it, specialists have observed that this application is primarily targeted at users living in the USA. If you live there, you should be very cautious all the time. Of course, other users cannot be sure that they will not encounter this program too, so we suggest being very careful for them. If it happens that this software still manages to sneak onto the computer, remove it immediately because it might act in an undesirable way.
We do not think that PlayPopGames is a trustworthy program because it will display in-text, interstitial, and pop-up advertisements on users’ screens. It does not try to hide this fact because this information is available in the About Us section:
As this software is going to show advertisements, specialists classify it as an advertising-supported application (adware). It is quite dangerous to keep adware installed because it will display ads and nobody knows where they will really redirect users. There is also a possibility that all these ads will disrupt the browsing session.
You should ask yourself whether you really want to keep a suspicious program installed. In our opinion, it is better to delete PlayPopGames from the system. You should do that not only because it shows ads and might interfere with your activities on the web, but also because this application might gather information about you. Fortunately, it promises not to gather personally-identifiable information; however, we are sure that it is going to record details associated with the users’ browsing data. The only way to put an end to this is to erase this adware from the system.
