What is Arcade Parlor?

ArcadeParlor is not a virus but it has been added to potentially unwanted program category. It seems that this program has more downsides than positive sides. First of all, it may infiltrate your computer and hijack each of web browsers that can be found on it without your approval. Once it does that, it may start showing you continuous pop-up notifications reporting about various discounts, coupons, sales and other ‘good’ deals. We can’t guarantee that each of ArcadeParlor ads is misleading but you should keep in mind that this program is ad-supported what means that it can easily show you third party ads that can redirect you to unknown websites. If you want to avoid redirects to unsafe websites, you should be very careful with ads that may be labeled as ‘Ads by ArcadeParlor’, ‘brought to you by Arcade Parlor’, ‘by Arcade Parlor’, etc.

By the way, we feel that we must also warn you that this potentially unwanted application may track your browsing on the Internet. It is mostly interested in people’s search queries and mostly visited websites but it may also record such details as your PC’s IP address, location, email address and data that you enter on each of your favorite website. Please, be careful with such activity! If ArcadeParlor redirects, pop-up ads and other unwanted activities have already started bothering you, you should waste no time and follow our removal guide that can be found below or simply download Reimage, update it and run a full system scan.
