What is 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 to access their messages. Although that might seem like a great service to those who use the Messenger every day, our 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.test

How does MessengerPC work?

Our malware analysts have come to a conclusion that MessengerPC was built by Heroku because it was found to connect to the server after installation. Although the company has a website representing itself, a website that would represent the PUP was not created. That means that the application is not distributed in a transparent manner. That also means that you do not have the option to review privacy policies, terms of use, license agreements, and other important information. If you are not in the habit of familiarizing yourself with the information disclosed via these statements when installing new software, you might not think twice about them not existing, but that is a red flag suggesting that something is being hidden from you. Without a doubt, an application that hides things from their customers cannot be trusted, and untrustworthy applications should be deleted without any hesitation. Since MessengerPC does not have an official download page, it is likely that it is spread using software bundles that might be carrying malware. It is strongly recommended that you perform a full system scan before you move on to check if you need to remove other malicious infections from your system.

Does MessengerPC work for you? If it does, you might be convinced that this program is harmless. Well, here’s the thing: You do not really know how it works. Sure, might allow you to message your Facebook contacts, but you really do not know what the creators of this PUP developed it for, or what kinds of information they might be recording using it. What if all messages are recorded, analyzed, and then used by unreliable advertisers or malicious parties? What if your password, email address, or phone number were leaked to malicious parties? We do not know if that would happen, but that is a possibility, and you need to think carefully if the service provided to you by MessengerPC is worth the risk? We are sure that it is not, and that is why you need to remove this potentially unwanted program immediately.
