    Hi Anand, one thing we learn as we become more familiar with consumer technology and software is that if the product is free, it usually means that you (the user) are the product — in other words, your details and online behaviour are likely to be harvested and aggregated as data to be sold to third parties.
    In worst-case scenarios, your identity and private details can also be revealed.
    When free software is analysed or assessed by you and your Windows Club friends, do you have the capacity to check whether or not this is what’s happening with the software being discussed?

  2. Hi John,

    What you say is true. So users have two alternatives – pay for a product or use a free one if available. While some may prefer to pay to use a product, some may want it free. The word free can indeed be misleading.

    Some software, like our own freeware, and many others like it, may be genuinely free, with absolutely no strings attached.

    Some ‘free’ products may be ad-supported and yet others may try to push 3rd-party offers. Then there are some which require you to surrender your email to get the free code or even ‘Like’ or ‘Follow’ them on social media first, in order to get the download links.

    In the worst case, as you have said, it may compromise your privacy or security. But in most case today, a good security suite can detect such behaviour.

    Here we cover freeware, as is generally understood, ie. one which does not require a payment in cash.

    When we cover freeware, we normally install it and see how it performs. We also do a check on its developers. We do not go in detail. We report it and leave that to the user. If he/she likes what he reads here, he can proceed to its download page.
