Careful when clicking Accept (Adware)

The truth is that no one reads the Terms and Conditions. We just scroll and click “Accept”, so we can get to the point where we can use the apps we install and do what we need to do.

However, when using new software whose trustworthiness you’re unsure of, it’s best to at least glance over the terms and conditions before clicking “I agree” or “Accept”.

Online crooks sometimes slip adware into otherwise safe software installers, and they bury it in the fine print of the terms and conditions. Since no one reads it, users unknowingly install adware that can potentially open up their systems to other cyber threats.

So please only install software from trusted sources and be careful of what it can hide.
