Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application


GetEasyArcade is meant to provide you with “thousands of free games with unlimited play time” directly from your browser. At the moment, however, this potentially unwanted program does not function in a beneficial manner. If you try to play games offered via this PUP, you are asked to download a .swf file, which represents Flash Player. Even if you download it, the game is not loaded. In fact, it is likely that the suspicious program is no longer supported by its creator APN, LLC because the official installer on www.geteasyarcade.com does not work. According to our researchers, if it worked, it should allow you to install an extension compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. Surprisingly, the extension’s installer provided via the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-arcade/apbofmodpodebgolpnejglhedmblmfen still works. Also, the installer – or version of it – could be spread by malicious parties along with other infections. Overall, whether or not it works, we advise that you remove GetEasyArcade, and if you want to learn more before you do it, please continue reading.

On the Chrome web store, GetEasyArcade is classified as a Search Tool, which should surprise you, considering that the extension is meant to help you play games, not browse the web. The thing is that when you install the extension, the New Tab page is modified, and mysearch.com search tool is set up. On Firefox, the homepage could also be switched to hp.mysearch.com. Although this search engine, allegedly, is “enhanced by Google,” you should not trust it. The results could showcase sponsored content, and you could land on malicious sites by interacting with it. Some researchers classify the PUP as a hijacker because it forces New Tab and homepage modifications. If you acquire the program from the official source, you are informed about these changes, but, of course, the situation could be different if you used unreliable third-party installers. Needless to say, if your browser’s settings were modified without your permission, you need to be concerned, and, most likely, you want to delete GetEasyArcade. As mentioned already, this potentially unwanted program does not work – at least not right now – and so there is no reason to keep it around.

Some users decide that GetEasyArcade is useful because of the easy-access links it promotes, which, in reality, are promoted by mysearch.com. Of course, the “Driving,” “Adventure,” “Action,” “Puzzle,” “Shooter,” and “Recently Played” links at the top belong to the potentially unwanted program (these links showcase games that, at the moment, do not work), but the rest are embedded in the hijacker. These easy-access links present Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia, Pinterest, and Instagram services. If you use them daily – and it is likely that you do, considering that they are highly popular – you might think that GetEasyArcade itself is beneficial even if it does not allow you to play games. According to our research, this might be the reason Chrome and Firefox users continue trusting TVHero and SportsHero, both of which are potentially unwanted programs that we recommend removing as well. According to the Privacy Policy the PUP is supported by, advertisements can be shown, and data can be collected. Therefore, even if you ignore the unreliable search tool and the inability to serve you beneficially, the PUP could be annoying and dangerous.

It is strongly recommended that you delete GetEasyArcade from your Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browser. If you follow the instructions below, you will see just how easy it is to get rid of this piece of software. Hopefully, you do not need to worry about anything else. If the homepage was corrupted when you installed the PUP, it should be restored automatically. If that does not happen, of course, you need to take care of that as well. If other threats have managed to get into your operating system – this could happen if, for example, you use unreliable installers – you should install a malware scanner to help you identify them. If you cannot eliminate them yourself, use an anti-malware tool to have them erased for you. If you want to discuss the infection or its elimination more, we are ready to discuss that in the comments section below.
