Are Pogo Downloads Safe and Secure?
You can count on us for a safe and secure gaming experience. The environment that our games are developed in is air tight and we spare no effort to vigorously ensure that our customers get a top notch product. The 3rd party developers we partner with are trusted and every game is tested before going live on the site.
Does the site have Adware?
As we offer Free Games supported by advertisements a part of our software contains adware. This allows our advertising to run smoothly, however we do not monitor activity. The adware within the software is both completely safe and non-intrusive by nature.
If you are receiving alert messages or experiencing blockages of games from your AV software you will need to alter the AV software's settings to allow installation successfully.
Why would Anti-Virus software flag a game for a virus?
What is called out as a "virus" related to our software is nothing of the kind. Sometimes AV software may not recognize our software and can falsely identify the product (games) as a threat. Again, we spare no effort to vigorously ensure that our customers get a top notch product and every game is tested before going live on the site.
We recommend spending some time to become familiar with your antivirus software and to be sure that you choose the product you operate on your machine carefully. Some products may do a great job of protecting your machine but could also be forcing your computer to operate within a bubble, needlessly flagging harmless software besides ours.
