How Solve iQ Can Save Your Computer from Deceptor Apps
As you try to keep your computer safe from the numerous risks that the digital world poses, it’s important that you understand which technologies you need to avoid most.
One of the often assumed least harmful and enticing of these technologies is downloadable apps. There are now more than 2.87 million of them out there just waiting for your attention. And, when you come into contact with one that can theoretically make your life easier, it’s important for you to know that the wrong download can lead to a slower computer that actually makes your life harder.
What are Deceptor Apps?
According to AppEsteem, deceptors can come in the form of websites, applications, services, and other entities that use deceptive tactics to get users to install them or interact with them. Those deceptive tactics generally trick users into giving consent (or not even ask for it) and generally make users feel cheated or unpleasantly surprised by what they paid for.
Solve iQ protects its customers from deceptors by preventing those deceptors from getting installed or slowing their computers down and/or opening their computers up to potential threats.
Thankfully, AppEsteem tries to protect the world from the dangerous effects of malicious apps via its certification process that identifies which apps you can trust and which you should avoid.
Solve iQ is a certified app and even works to block Deceptor apps before they can take root in your computer (more on this in a bit). In fact, every month, Solve iQ shows about 50,000 Deceptor-related blocks or notifications to its active customers.
In order to be certified, an app developer must prove that their app is “wanted” versus “unwanted.” In other words:
- No consumer should be tricked into giving consent to download, or in some cases not asked for consent at all before an app is downloaded.
- No consumer should be surprised by what they’ve downloaded. What is advertised must be exactly what is downloadable.
- No consumer should ever feel cheated.
What to Look for When Downloading an App’
If you’re deciding whether to download a particular app, it’s important for you to look carefully at the offer. Don’t pre-download or install before being asked to accept an offer. The app developer must disclose what is being installed.
If for any reason you’re unsure, don’t download the application. And finally, it’s important to take time to read disclosures. They should be readily available for you to review.
