PlayFizz is the name of both a potentially unwanted program and its associated website that we will discuss throughout this article. However, from the very outset, we must say that the application is unreliable and you should remove it in a timely manner. The application can put your computer’s security in jeopardy, because the legitimacy of the content it promotes cannot be verified. So if if cyber security is important to you, then you should take action against this add-on and get rid of it.

Playfizz.com is a gaming website that features more than 3000 flash games, and we suspect that it has no shortage of visitors because the games are free. The website is owned by the GPV Entertainment, LLC based in Los Angeles, California, USA. The company is closely linked with another company called Future Ads LLC. The word ads say everything. Now, we are not trying to bash GPV Entertainment for providing users with entertainment, but the fact that it displays advertisements is quite disappointing, but then again, the developers need to cover the costs of running the website.

We have received unconfirmed reports that PlayFizz is distributed using malicious software bundles. However, our researchers did not find any cases of such software bundles. At any rate, if you have recently found a flash game on your computer that has seemingly come out of nowhere, we recommend that you scan your computer for malicious content. What we do know is that you can get PlayFizz by downloading games found in the Premium section of the website.

The application acts as the game manager/downloader. After you download and install the game the application will remain. It will also install a browser add-on on Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox. PlayFizz will start displaying advertisements that come in various shapes and sizes. We are for the removal of this application, because the ads are first and foremost irritating and intrusive, and second they are supplied by unknown entities. The privacy policy states that the application provides exclusive third-party ads, and uses browser cookies and other web-tracking technologies to keep tabs on non-personal information about you.

The privacy policy has an interesting quote “We link to outside websites and services from time to time. While we try to select appropriate sites, note that we are not responsible for the practices, content or the privacy policies employed by third party sites.” As always we always find disclaimers when third-party ads and links are concerned. We thin k it says everything you need to know about this application and its website. They are unreliable, especially the application. Therefore, suggest that you remove PlayFizz.

In conclusion, PlayFizz is a potentially unwanted program. It is used a downloader that downloads legitimate applications but also installs a browser extension which displays commercial advertisements of unreliable nature. We know the reason why it shows ads, but the owners must be certain that the content that they promote is absolutely legitimate. So you can remove the PlayFizz if you want to, note that it is not an immediate threat, but still, cyber security should never be neglected.
