Where does Playzy come from?

During our research, we did not encounter any official website that would distribute Playzy directly. It is not surprising because Playzy is created by the same developers as Wajam adware. Hence, just like most of the adware applications from the same family, this program also gets distributed bundled with freeware.

For example, it was found that Playzy may sometimes arrive bundled with PC Optimizer Pro and similar potentially unwanted programs. This also means that users download unwanted applications on their own. If you want to avoid the likes of Playzy getting installed on your computer, you should refrain from downloading freeware on a regular basis. If you must have a new program, get it from an official website.

What’s more, Playzy clearly displays countless commercial advertisements that are mostly tailored according to your web browsing habits.
