Do you know what Pass and Play is?
Pass and Play is an application promoted on passandplaysoftware.com. It might really seem that this program is trustworthy if we take into account only the appearance of this website; however, it is the opposite in reality. In other words, Pass and Play is not trustworthy software even though it says that it will find and provide you with all the best deals available on the web. Researchers who have thoroughly read all the information provided on its official website say that this program also promises to enhance a user’s browsing experience. It claims that it will do that by helping users to “find the best information, deals, and options that exist anywhere on the Internet.” Even though this software tries to convince users that it is very beneficial, the truth is that Pass and Play is just an adware program that is going to display ads. Actually, it does not hide that. Of course, it does not display this information on the main page of its official website too; however, it says that it might “occasionally display ads on some web pages” in order to stay free in its EULA (End User License Agreement).
As Pass and Play does not do anything good, you should not help its publisher to collect money. In other words, you should not click on any of the ads you see. Actually, it would be best that you remove this adware completely because its commercial ads might expose you to threats. Research has shown that Pass and Play is going to display all kinds of ads (e.g., in-text ads, web browsing-related ads, interstitial ads, transitional ads, full-page ads, and banners), which means that it is very likely that you will click on any of those ads one day. Unfortunately, not all the ads you see on your screen are trustworthy. Researchers say that there is a number of ads that have untrustworthy links inside and thus might expose users to malicious software. Of course, there is a possibility that another untrustworthy program is responsible for the presence of commercial ads; however, we are sure that Pass and Play is installed on your computer if you can find its folder Pass and Play in %Program Files% (%Program Files(x86)%) and %Temp% directories. You might have installed this program long ago – it needs time to start showing commercials.Pass and Play screenshot
