Why does your site have popups?
Our site does not have popups, but some sites we link to might have them. They are usually denoted by a 'Popups Detected' in the search results to warn you that the site you are clicking to has some sort of popup.

Does your website have spyware or viruses?
No way! Our website does not contain any spyware / viruses or any other malicious code that can cause harm to your computer. However, because we index links to other websites, we can not guarantee that every link will be a safe one. This is why we recommend you scan any cracks or keygens with anti-virus software to ensure they are safe and to use Firefox for more secure safe web browsing. Some serial sites do not require you to download anything so this can be a safer option compared to crack or keygen sites.

However, we strive to bring you the best and safest results as possible.

Why are there broken links to cracks?
Some content gets deleted due to copyright complaints. If it is popular there is usually more chance of the content being removed. If you find broken links or the crack, serial or keygen is not working, you can report it by using the "Does this crack work?" function which is located at the top of every crack page. It will allow you to vote 'Yes' or 'No' depending on whether the crack works or not. This will help us keep our database clean and more user-friendly.

What is the difference between a crack, serial and keygen?
A crack is used to eliminate any copyright protection the software has and usually modifies files such as config files to bypass any limitations. A serial is a simple piece of text that is used to "unlock" your software as if the key had been purchased. A keygen is a file that generates a serial to use for your software; these require a lot of work as the cracker must find the algorithm that the software creator uses. For more information on this, view our help guide.
