Free AP is nice, but when i take a look at offers, i realize here is something wrong.
There is small risk because software installations will make your pc more dirty.
Some software installs will install extra toolbars, bloatware, spyware, malware. Because business want follow you what you're doing.
For example 7-Zip. Good tool. But if you click on 7-zip download, you will see it's not 7-Zip itself. The original 7-Zip installer has no extra tools and programs.
The 7-Zip from offer will install toolbars and untrusted programs at your pc. Your pc will be more filled and dirty with unneeded tools. Actually, this is not fair: business "stole" 7-Zip and use it with own toolbars.
Win a iPad / iPhone or money. Winning is nice, but it's not fully free. You must do something for business. Questions, give money, make contracts, and more unwanted things, and giving personal information is very common in quiz and winning games.
Even offers with 1000 AP, you must buy or book something.
Free AP? Not really. It will mainly costs you some money.
I'm sorry, but i don't believe much in offers, because the Item Mall costs already much money with Lucky boxes (that is actually money lottery/gambling).
Aeria, you care much about safetly of the users. Passwords and personal data. But do you realize some offers are possible dirty and not safe? Installing bloatware and spyware is always possible with "free software" from business. Here, 7-Zip is already dirty with toolbars, the original 7-Zip has no toolbars and thus clean.
You're warned about "dirty" free AP offers. Be careful, not all business are clean, they want your money. I can see the problem behind some offers.
"All offers are provided by external partners. Aeria Games & Entertainment has no direct control over them."
There is good chance if i miss one step inside offer, i won't receive free AP... Of ignoring one toolbar, might miss free AP... That makes this "dirty" business untrusted because Aeria cannot check the rights for free AP.
Sorry Aeria, when is Free AP really clean and safe? This is just money business. Want milk more money from users? Sure, you can do it, but you can easy damage the trust. Some players will never come back.
I want keep my pc clean as possible. No unwanted tools and programs. Clean pc is safe, and thus no risks about password stealing. Toolbars looks handy, but on internet, you will find 10-20 different toolbars. Yeah, too much. And not all toolbars are safe.
The best advice is don't install downloaders and installers from unknown sites. Only from original site. Internet is already dirty enough, just be careful.
Even topic will possible be locked, my advice will stay for all users: think and check first before you accept the offer. Do you see something strange and not good feeling? Stop immediately. Must you fill many personal information? Be careful. Don't give suddely your email away, or you will receive (too much) emails and possible spam.
I wish for all users safe internet and less money loss because unwanted things inside some offers. Always keep your pc clean!
