Google has published its annual Transparency Report, which tracks the HTTPS status of the world’s top 100 third-party websites, and we are proud to announce that Softonic is part of this list. We take data protection and privacy of our users very seriously and we are committed to offering a secure and safe browsing experience for everyone who visits our site.
As Google outlines in their Transparency Report, HTTPS is a mechanism that allows your browser or app to securely connect to a website. It is one of the measures to help keep your browsing safe and secure and it also makes it harder for your ISP, governments and others to monitor your online activity.
“With more than 100 million unique monthly users who generate more than 4 million daily downloads on Softonic.com, it is our responsibility to make sure our site is clean, safe and also encrypted,” Scott Arpajian, Softonic’s CEO. “We take our users’ safety very seriously and are proud to be included on this list.”
We actively check the security of our users and launched the Clean and Safe initiative in 2015 to guarantee a safe and clean browsing and downloading experience across all our sites. Every single program published on the website is scanned with more than 30 antivirus engines.
