Several online video games take full advantage of Easy Anti-Cheat to monitor your Windows 11/10 computer while you’re playing. The primary purpose of Easy AntiCheat is to stop cheats from activating, which in turn protects the peace of mind of millions of gamers. If the tool detects a problem, then it is possible you could end up being banned from playing the game ever again.
What is Easy AntiCheat Service on my computer?
To put it simply, this program is an anti-cheating tool designed to stop cheaters where online multiplayer games are concerned. It is made by a company known as Kamu, and so far, it is only available on Windows and macOS. From what we’ve gathered, the program runs in the background on your computer while it protects your game from cheats. Additionally, instead of banning cheaters outright, the tool is designed to stop frauds before they can make a move.
Does EasyAntiCheat.exe run all the time?
No, that is not the case at all. The utility will only run on your computer whenever a supported video game is being played. Simply launch the game, then check the Task Manager to find out the tool is running in the background. The process is usually known as EasyAntiCheat.exe. You cannot miss it.
