Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

Search & Destroy can detect and remove spyware of different kinds from your computer. Spyware is a relatively new kind of threat that common anti-virus applications do not yet cover. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you didn't intentionally install, if your browser crashes, or if you browser's start page has changed without your knowing, you most probably have spyware. But even if you don't see anything, you may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging that is silently tracking your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile of you that will be sold to advertisement companies.

Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm in trying to see if something snooped into your computer, too

"Don't expect tech help or email replys"

They refuse to answer any email sent to them for support.I've written them 4 times and never received a answer.Even though I deleated the older version and am using the updated one the old one keeps popping up telling me to update my virus definitions.I keep emailing them as to how to stop this and they refuse to answer.So don't expect tech help from them.I have one of the paid versions what a mistake.

  • Works well in locating problems
  • Refuses to ans email questions
  • No tech help even in paid versions
  • Liked the old version 100% better as it would tell you if you needed something or not
