Instead, they just agree to all of them, which is how they allow QuizGames to enter and are then forced to deal with it on a daily basis. So, there it is. There’s the explanation of how the tool enters your system unnoticed, but you allow for it. Be more careful and don’t rush!

Why are these ads dangerous?

QuizGames is not malicious by design, but the people behind it can, and indeed do, use it for malicious purposes. The pop-up ads, the tool continuously throws your way, contain links to sites, which are corrupted. So, if you click on a single ad, you’ll only cause further damages to your system. Don’t click on them! It may seem hard to do because the program’s pop-ups are chosen specifically for you and you alone, which makes them look enticing. The application selects ads, which it believes best suit your interests. It chooses them for you, based on the information the program has gathered about your online activities. What’s worse, all of this information the tool collects on you, is then sent to the malicious third parties that published it. That means strangers have access to all of your personal and financial details. Are you going to allow that? All of this combined with the incredible annoyance of being forced to deal with the pop-up ads should tilt the scales in favor of deleting the program. Get rid of QuizGames as soon as you can!
