PlayThunder Offers has been developed by the author of playthunder.com and is known to be an advertising-supported application (adware). Users install it on their systems expecting that they could surf this website for free and play online games on it, but a bunch of them get disappointed with this piece of software because they start seeing tons of commercial advertisements on their screens. All these ads are used “as a way to support our site so that you can continue to browse PlayThunder for free.” This sounds fair at first, but we cannot promise that you could surf this website and play games even if you install PlayThunder Offers on your computer. The website displays a message claiming that the service is unavailable in the user’s country when he/she opens the page, but it seems that this message has nothing to do with the location – it is displayed to all users no matter where they try to access the website from. Playthunder.com might be fixed one day, but it does not mean that it is a very good idea to install this adware program because it will flood the screen with various commercial advertisements. They usually look completely harmless, but, believe us, it is not clever to click on them at all. Without a doubt, there is a reason we say so.

Security researchers at 411-spyware.com say that PlayThunder Offers does not change browsers’ settings once installed. Instead, it is installed as a Google Chrome browser extension and starts showing various commercial advertisements shortly after. You might see banners, pop-ups, static images, and even video ads. You will find all those annoying advertisements on websites that have not shown any intrusive advertisements before. Commercials displayed by adware programs might diminish the browsing experience to a great extent. Additionally, they might take you to unreliable websites that might be full of untrustworthy external links and/or bad software. Dubious pages might try to get some details about you too, for example, your name, surname, and your email address. Even though specialists who have analyzed PlayThunder Offers could not access the extension’s Privacy Policy document that is available at playthunder.com, they are 100% sure that this advertising-supported application (adware) collects information about all users who have it installed on their computers. Adware is nowhere near sophisticated malware, so it should not access any details that belong to the sensitive information category. Instead, it should primarily focus on the collection of various details that cannot identify personally, including IP address, websites visited, advertisements displayed, and much more. PlayThunder Offers might disclose the collected information to third parties even if it does not get permission from you.

Some users install PlayThunder Offers on their computers consciously expecting that they could surf playthunder.com and play online games on it for free; however, we are sure there are people who do not know much about the installation of this adware program because, as research has shown, it might be also distributed in software bundles. It is not a new distribution method. It might be adopted to spread potentially unwanted applications, browser hijackers, and many other untrustworthy programs, so we expect you to install new software carefully the next time. Additionally, it is advisable to have an antimalware scanner installed on the system. It will not allow a single threat to enter the system illegally no matter how dangerous it is.

If you decide to remove PlayThunder Offers to make all irritating commercial advertisements disappear, you could delete it like an ordinary browser extension. An automated malware remover can be used to erase this advertising-supported application too, so it is up to you how you delete it from your computer. Do not expect PlayThunder Offers to stop showing ads one day – you need to take action yourself to disable it.
