What is Bloatware

Bloatware is software that uses an excessive amount of system resources, such as disk space and memory.

Bloatware is software you don’t want that burdens and slows down your device.

These are programs that are preinstalled on new devices, come bundled with other downloads, or are injected into your system through malicious sites.

There are two main ways for bloatware (or Potentially Unwanted Programs – PUP) to reach you. It usually comes pre-installed by vendors, manufacturers or carriers. There can be a few reasons for this:

  •     Software developers pay providers to install their products on your device.

  •     Manufacturers provide the user with maintenance applications (e.g., Lenovo Solutions  Centre) that also collect user data.

  •     Software or OS updates can push branded solution centers, trialware, or just random add-ons.

Not all bloatware is bad. Some pre-installed media suites or control centers can be useful, and some are very easily removable.

Another type of bloatware comes from the web. It can come from malicious websites or be downloaded together with programs you want from third-party webpages. It can also hide in software bundles. This bloatware is more dangerous as it often contains adware or malware.
