MessengerPC

MessengerPC

You need to think twice before installing MessengerPC because this Windows application is not the reliable tool you might believe it to be. The app – which we classify as a potentially unwanted program – is introduced to users as a tool that allows using Facebook Messenger via an application window, which means that users do not need to launch their browser and go to https://www.facebook.com/messages/ to access their messages. Although that might seem like a great service to those who use the Messenger every day, our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team warns that the app is very unpredictable, and that it is possible that it was built to record and leak private information. Needless to say, that is something that must be investigated further, and if you want to learn more about that, you should continue reading. If you cannot wait any longer to delete MessengerPC from your operating system, check out the removal instructions below. Also, notice that the comments section is open to everyone, and if you have any observations or questions you want to ask our research team, feel free to do so. Read more »
