Is it safe to use bluestack?

#1
Many people ask me this question, technically it's safe, but the software will continue to download random and bloatware apps until you pay. I don't know if this is changed, but anyway is safe, one of the famous Android emulator for Windows. ... Or you can also use nox app i like it much than bluestacks.

What is your thoughts? Is it safe or not?

Since when does BlueStacks download bloatware apps? This has never happened to me before but I haven't installed it in a while.

I think it's because Bluestacks wanted to earn more money from various other sources. Understandable of course, you got so many people using your emulator, so you gotta make certain that you can keep them happy and keep the emulator running.

Hello @Uyj143 , From my own experience, I have used and installed the Blue Stacks just recently but there is no incident that it continue to download random and bloatware applications. So i think for me based on my experience it is safe to use. Let us just wait for other member's reply that might help you thank you for informative post. :)

What is bluestack ?bluestacks is an app player that was made to enable android applications to run on a PC.
Bluestack is safe but it has its bad side which include;
1. If this system runs on a computer that has less than 4gb of RAM then the system will be slow.
My conclusion is bluestacks is very very safe.

Bluestacks is safe to use and I never had any problem about bluestacks when I'm using it. The only problem depends on your computer because bluestacks eat a lot of ram that cause laggy in your computer and very lag to play games in bluestacks. :)

My brother is using Bluestacks in downloading games and apps. I have not heard any complains so far from him. He is loving Bluestacks as far as I know.

I haven't experienced any bloatware problems in Bluestacks itself, but if there is, I think that's only their way of earning from their software. The best thing you can do is unistall those bloatwares since it only takes a minute or two to do so. Besides, bloatwares from Bluestacks are guaranteed to be safe and the developers themselves are trusted.

Personally, I won't recommend Bluestacks though. I highly recomend NOX.

I used bluestack on an old laptop for several months with no issue. I don't use it much these days, but it's still on the laptop and I haven't noticed any issues. I'm pretty serious about keeping my computer secure so I tend to keep a close eye on the things. Of course, you should always keep a look out for yourself. You never know when things might change.

I used bluestack and its great. The software is very usefull especially if you want to play games in huge monitor. Games like nba 2k19 gives you more enjoyment and fun. So don't be afraid to use it, its safe to use based on my experience and it helps you enjoy the games.

It depends, I once downloaded bluestock on my windows it developed into a virus. Be very careful when downloading bluestock, I downloaded mine from a wrong source. Make sure it is also compatible with your windows or else it will not work perfectly.
Just make sure you download it from the right source, look out for the virus that comes through the downloading process.

I don't remember Bluestacks downloading things I didn't ask for. But yes, Bluestacks is safe and free to use. I used to use it for a certain game that didn't work 100% well on my actual Android device. Pictures of weapons and outfits were missing, and I couldn't even read their description. So I managed to download Bluestacks, log in to the same account, and make the correct changes there.
I also used it to play Pokemon Go, but it just isn't the same.

I will say, I downloaded and looked at it recently, and it seems a lot more... Sponsored. You get coins for playing games which you can use to buy stuff with. I'm guessing the things we do with Bluestacks earns them money, so they give us a bit of virtual change, which we can trade in at one point.

Still safe, but a lot of ads, which can make it look suspicious. But still safe to use Bluestacks.

Bluestacks is an emulator to run Android apps and game on our Windows. It’s not a virus or anything else. From my side, it is completely risk free and we can use it freely. However, bluestacks can enable we sync information from our Android phone to the devices on to we are using bluestacks. So, we should be careful about that the install bluestacks only on the device we own.

If you don't want to deal with tons of freezing and lag, you'll want to enable virtualization settings for your PC. There are some help articles specifically for Bluestacks in their forums on this.

As for safety, I believe it's a user-friendly sandbox, but I can't speak to its trustworthiness overall. I didn't have any issues besides slowing down on my computer.
