Do you ever take the time to read the end user license agreements (EULAs) that pop up each time you buy or download a software program online? No, neither do I. But now there’s a free program that will read the EULA for you, and alert you to any tricky language. Just visit JavaCoolSoftware.com and get the program for free. Here’s more information:
End user license agreements (EULAs) are the bane of most computer users.
No one wants to read through pages and pages of boring text before installing a program. And many programs put their license agreements in small windows that require lots of scrolling. So many people either skim them or skip reading them altogether.
But it can be dangerous not to read license agreements.
License agreements can provide information about the intentions of software, and other bundled components. Have you ever installed a program, only to have your desktop taken over by advertising? It may have been noted in the license agreement that you simply clicked past. If you aren’t reading the license agreements, you have no idea what you could be agreeing to.
You should always read license agreements before agreeing to them.
But now there’s a way of making that much easier.
EULAlyzer – Making it all easy
EULAlyzer can analyze license agreements in seconds, and provide a detailed listing of potentially interesting words and phrases. Discover if the software you’re about to install displays pop-up ads, transmits personally identifiable information, uses unique identifiers to track you, or much much more.
- Discover potentially hidden behavior about the software you’re going to install
- Pick up on things you missed when reading license agreements
- Keep a saved database of the license agreements you view
- Instant results – super-fast analysis in just a second
And with additional features like the EULA Research Center, which optionally allows users to anonymously submit license agreements they scan to help us to further improve the program, everyone can be a part of the effort to make something that used to be so tedious, so easy.
