Hi, I want to say that Softonic is safe. Softonic is safe. I downloaded a program from there, but I did not encounter any viruses. I also use Mario and other programs easily. I understand people. When the antivirus gives a signal, they think the program is infected. Wrong idea. Antiviruses try to delete automatically when you install a program. Because antiviruses do not allow changes to be made to the computer. SHORT SOFTONIC Safe

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.

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.
