GamesFlight is a potentially unwanted application (PUP) that users download and install to access high-quality games from the gamesflight.com web page. In exchange, users receive various ads that appear as they search the Internet. The application might seem harmless, but it might promote unreliable third-party content that could be dangerous to your computer. As the GamesFlight creators state themselves, they do not review or take responsibility for the displayed third-party ads. If you do not wish to risk your computer's safety, you should delete the PUP from your computer. We are almost one hundred percent sure that you will not miss the application, especially when you may have downloaded it unintentionally. If that is truly the case, then scroll below this article and erase the PUP with the given instructions. Nonetheless, we recommend reading the whole article if you want to learn more about the application.

While researching the PUP, we have learned that it should be spread bundled with the untrustworthy software. It means that GamesFlight could have been suggested to you on a different program’s installation wizard. However, if you rush to complete the installation, you might not notice the information given on the setup wizard, including additional software suggestions. To avoid such situations, you should always choose advanced installation settings and read the terms provided in every step.

After you install GamesFlight, you should begin to notice suspicious ads on your browser. The application’s End User License Agreement (EULA) states that “While the Software is running, it will serve you video, new page, and textlink advertisements as you browse the web.” The PUP might open new browser windows or tabs to serve such ads. Also, in the EULA, it is said that advertising could be “based on the content of websites you browse.” This means that the application could gather addresses of your visited web pages, clicked ads, and other information that is considered as non-identifiable. According to the collected data, you might receive targeted ads. They could promote similar goods to the ones that are shown on your visited web pages, but the ads displayed by GamesFlight application will not be related to them. In other words, if you click such advertisements you will be redirected to third-party websites.

The main issue with the third-party sites and the content on them is that they come from unknown sources. As we mentioned before, the PUP’s creators do not review or otherwise check if the third-party sites are safe for their users. We cannot say how many ads could lead you to malicious sites that contain Trojans or other malware, but there is such a risk, and there are others as well. For example, if you land on a site that does not have the Privacy Policy or similar documents, it could collect your sensitive or private data and use it scam you.

Nonetheless, we have some good news for users who want to get rid of the application as soon as possible. It looks like it has a working uninstaller, which means that the PUP can be removed via Control Panel. If you never deleted a program through Control Panel, you could take a look at the instructions available below the text.
