Offers freeware, but many people take advantage of this and therefore release dangerous programs on this website

Mucho software "de regalo" incluido en los instaladores. Está claro que se lucran incluyendo esos instaladores dentro de los programas que uno se descarga del sitio. Nada recomendable, tu pc acaba con varios programas extra que no te interesan, y que además algunos de ellos son "basura".

TERRIBLE. There is a lot of pirated games on the site and every single one of them is infested with viruses. Never download from this website.

Esta pagina es una basura, ya que el 90% de los programas no existen por lo que son viruses

A well-known tricky-install site, one of the most aggressive. The whole domain should get a rating but unfortunately on WOT there seems to be no regex or wildcard; too bad because Softonic typically adds subdomains to every single product they put online. All they do is ride the back of real freewares and trick you into adding malware to your PC. The best thing you can do is block them from google hits at the first place.

Softonic steals programs made by other people, then bundle them with malware and adware to then infect your computer. Avoid this site at all costs!

I don't trust, after you install a program or something else, a toolbar will appear named: SWEETim or something else. Stay back from this website, that can be malicious (maybe).

I installed a few products from this site way back in the day, not one piece of software was legitimate. Each and every piece of software from this site has been illegitimate and stuffed full of malware.

This website is okay for some downloads as long as your getting it trusted. As softonic says in windows 7 destruction by vinesauce joel, it is obviously not scanned by 50-100 antivirus programs. There are tons of programs that come bundled with spyware and malware, OVERALL: The website is safe if the download is trusted.

Overall: Unsafe Pros: - Contains lots of freeware Cons: - PUPs Description: Not safe. Similar to hxxp://download.cnet.com. This site's reputation is suspicious, 4.3 stars and it contains malware. Lots.

One of those sites that has "Download" buttons all over the place which will not actually download the item you want but you end up with some piece of garbage ware like MacKeeper. Our corporate firewall considers this site a malware site.

No entiendo por que si la mayoria comenta del peligro de este lugar aparece softonic como confiable por su anillo verde;conozco el sitio,desde que tengo internet he hecho mis descargas desde alli,cuando empece a conocer los antispyware y a usarlos me di cuenta que toda esa basura venia de este dichoso lugar y de CNET,...les digo la verdad,actualmente presto atencion a la hora que aparecen mis busquedas en el browse,y todo lo que diga softonic es rechazado por mi,ademas te dire que ellos tienen una tecnica que hace que se ponga el texto en lo primero al aparecer tus busquedas como si pareciera que es lo que estas buscando,he intentado su sistema de descarga y en mas de 10 ocasiones ha sido calificado de no bueno,...todavia deberia tener ese circulo verde en lado suyo en los buscadores?,NO LO CREO!! (a la fecha de hoy 27/8/2017 el sitio a mejorado en imagen y todo eso, se ve ademas un esfuerzo por llamar la atencion del visitante,pero su modo operandis sigue siendo el mismo,..he intentado una descarga y el navegador advierte que esa descarga puede dañar el Pc, sigo con la misma opinion), analisen las descargas con virus total scanner, si usas Chrome bien puedes ponerlo como extension obtenido desde la tienda Chrome)

Downloading site with a reputation of adware and plenty of PUP (Potentially unwanted programs). It would be best to use different websites for downloading or go directly to the actual source of the download for safety.

Softonic.com is known for malware and viruses. A problem other than that is the (not normally mentioned) fact that it's without the https encryption system, and that it could be considered equal to limewire, which has been shut down due to copyrighted games and music being shared illegally. This website is like limewire: illegal, full of viruses, and simply unable to be trusted.

Google, please remove this crap from your search results! Google you're accomplice of his malwares, viruses, adwares, phishing, spam, trojans, or other dangerous scams or crimes! Google you're also an accomplice of software plagiarism and their real authors are not at all happy! Even worse, there may be users who complain that their software is accompanied by malware and other craps or scams despite the fact that the real authors have nothing to do with it but that Google has directed the users to a platform of Rotten downloads! Google please stop this bullshit!
