Is there a difference between Wondershare.com and Wondershare.net?

Never heard of Wondershare so I don't know it it's a trusted site but you can install Web Of Trust to your browser if it's not Microsoft Edge. It's an extension that tells you what people think about it weather if it's trusted or not.

Adware will be installed along with anything you download from those Wondershare sites.

WOT says the site has a poor reputation based on user ratings, link below to download WOT if you want.

They make a ton of different types of software ripoff applications that usually work like crap and crash a lot. In my experience with them, they don't install adware with their applications.

Most people dislike them because you pay a premium for their software and its generally ripoff junk. While some of there programs are decent the majority of their stuff is sub par.

All download sites have to make their $ from somewhere.

 

The most obvious source is from "stuff" added to their downloads.

 

So regardless of the name of the site.....be on your guard !!

 

btw....spam advisor raises a red flag with WOT.....whereas wondershare.com gets the green light from WOT

Wondershare makes money by selling ripoff software and most of their software comes with trials. Most of the stuff I've installed rarely comes with adware.
