How does iWin Games work?

When you download a game using the Download Manager, you will be asked if you want the setup to also install an iWin Games browser toolbar and if you want the setup to change your browser’s default homepage and search engine to Yahoo.com. Note that the aforementioned changes will only be made to Firefox and Internet Explorer, as Chrome will remain unaffected. The iWin Games download manager is a well-made application that features various game categories that make navigation very easy. We think that the toolbar not functional, since no toolbar actually appeared on the browsers once it had been installed. Of course, the toolbar is listed in the browsers’ list of extensions, and you can remove it if you want to.

iWin Games is potentially unwanted, because its privacy policy states that it might display commercial advertisements while you play. However, we did not see any advertisements. On the other hand, we have received complaints that the ads are quite annoying and they may look like fake Java, Adobe Flash, and browser updates that might redirect you to unreliable websites from which you can download malicious applications, such as adware. So is having iWin Games really worth it? We do not think so, because there are plenty of alternatives you can choose from.

The applications and the main website will collect information about you but that is to be expected, since many of them do so to tailor advertisements. So if you are not bothered by the ads, then, by all means, keep the download manager and the games, but if you think that they are a potential security risk, then you should remove iWin Games.
