How many of us read the End User License Agreement before we install a software? One of the perils of not reading the EULA and installing the software is that you could be agreeing for spywares to be installed along with the software. And that is how the people who install the spyware escapes the law by claiming that the software was installed with the "Informed consent" of the user.
Yeah, it is definitely a hard thing to read the whole agreement especially when they are written in such small fonts and too long. This where the EULA analyzer called EULAlyzer comes to your help. 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.
All you have to do is drag the EULAlyzer's capture icon to the text. Or you can even copy and paste the agreement into the program and click on the Analyze button. The program analyzes the words and flags it at different Interest ID levels and draws the attention of the user even to words that are cunningly phrased to trick the user.
So before you click on the "I Accept" button next time use this program and analyze it.
