Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

Safe Internet surfing

Elena Santos

Pros
  • Very easy to use
  • Works in real time
  • Doesn't slow down navigation
  • Blocks any sort of attack or potential danger
Cons
  • Installation includes Yahoo! search engine
  • Toolbar is not very useful
  • Not a replacement for other security tools

"Slows down search pages"

LinkScanner is okay for regular browsing, I guess, but it slows down search pages something awful--I'm guessing because, naturally, the page consists mostly of links. When I had it enabled, every time I googled something I ended up having to wait an excruciatingly long time for LinkScanner so the page could finish loading. I finally got fed up and disabled it. Instead I started using the WOT add-on for Firefox, which from my initial impression probably isn't quite as accurate, but which accomplishes essentially the same thing without slowing down searches much.

Pros
  • It's not made by Symantec.
  • Tells you when a site is sketchy.
Cons
  • Causes search pages to load with the lightning swiftness of a heavily sedated sloth in wet cement.
  • If you download it as a standalone application, it will infect your browser with Yahoo toolbar, the athlete's foot of the internet.
