Do not buy or download any anti-spyware software without checking this list first. Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products & Web Sites — About 241 programs are listed as of December 2005. At best, these rogue programs are useless; at worst, they install spyware instead of removing it! Use EULAlyzer to check an “end user license agreement” (EULA) before you install software to check for amazing provisions like it’s ok to spy on you.
EULAlyzer can analyze license agreements in seconds, and provide a detailed listing of potentially interesting words and phrases. Discover if the software you’re about to install displays pop-up ads, transmits personally identifiable information, uses unique identifiers to track you, or much much more.
* Discover potentially hidden behavior about the software you’re going to install
* Pick up on things you missed when reading license agreements
* Keep a saved database of the license agreements you view
* Instant results – super-fast analysis in just a second
And with additional features like the EULA Research Center, which optionally allows users to anonymously submit license agreements they scan to help us to further improve the program, everyone can be a part of the effort to make something that used to be so tedious, so easy.
When installing software, never just click past the license agreement. Pop it into EULAlyzer, and EULAlyze it!
