PlayGem is an adware application that you should remove if you are a security-minded person. The program monitors your Internet activity and even collects your personally identifiable information. This information could be transferred to unknown third parties, and this should never be acceptable. Your information may be used to commit financial fraud, leaving you responsible. So, do not take any risks and remove the unreliable application on the spot.

The program presents itself as a puzzle game that helps you kill time. It works as promised, but let us stop for a moment and think how this game appeared on your computer. The game is not available to download from its official site. What’s more, the webpage looks identical to the official site of the MovieDea adware application. It is rather strange that the two programs, looking completely different at first sight, have identical webpages. But there is something else identical about the two. It is not possible to download them from official sources, they come in bundles with other programs, and they both attack you with commercial ads and pop-ups.

Yes, you will soon encounter the unpleasant effects of PlayGem’s presence on your computer. Each time you open your browser, the program will remind you of itself with various ads. Almost every hour it will make its presence more visible by placing an ad in the middle of the screen. Please note that PlayGem gathers data on you and transfers it to third parties, which, in turn, use this data to show you tailored ads. You may find some advertisement useful and click on it. But there is a moment when the goals of creators of this puzzle game are fulfilled. Your every click generates revenue for them. Furthermore, you can only lose by clicking on the ads. Third-party websites that you may find yourself transferred to, could be run by shady persons, and your personal information could be used for unlawful acts. For example, you may find yourself a victim of a credit card scam attempt. Results of this puzzle game could be really unpredictable.

We think that you are already eager to remove PlayGem if you care about your virtual security. You can do it manually, as the common way of eliminating the unwanted application by means of Control Panel works in this case as well. To make your task easier, we have prepared a short guide that will assist you in a process of elimination. But you should be aware that other more dangerous threats may already be hiding somewhere in your system. Locating and eliminating them manually will take a lot of time, so it is better to use a legitimate antimalware scanner. We recommend that you use SpyHunter, which proved to be a trustworthy and reliable guard against all kinds of computer infections. Need more information about this tool?
