Softonic Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

John B. shares some thoughts about Softonic in a review published by SITEJABBER: "This site is set up to hammer you with an advertisement that is self-serving to them. They advertise software without the author's permission in order to get you to their site via the author's popularity. They are shifty at best. They make sure they come up first in search engines before an official listing from the legitimate manufacturer. They refuse to remove their illegal and unsolicited listing of a manufacturer's product when requested by the manufacturer to not falsely advertise their product. They pretend to be a legitimate and official representative of other people's products. They are an unauthorized company that has no legal grounds to represent products that they didn't advertise. If you buy anything through them or download anything through them, good luck and do at your own risk"
