Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

  • Very fast locking and unlocking system
  • May not be as reliable as a good, strong password

BananaScreen is a fun and easy solution to lock and unlock your computer using only your face. When you are away from your PC, the program locks it.

When you come back, BananaScreen unlocks it in less time that it would take to enter your password. And it's free, so try BananaScrenn and have fun!

"Cool for a free software but has bugs."

Works fine under normal scenario. Does not unlock for other people or by using photographs.

Bugs (Tested on Windows 7 64 bit):

1) If you lock using Banana Screen and then using Ctrl+Alt+Delete (or window+L), after you unlock the windows using your password the banana screen is no longer there and you are unable to unlock. However there is a way around which is the more serious bug described below.

2) Lock using bananascreen. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then Logoff. The Bananscreen software is killed and your computer gets unlocked. If you get the Force restart message you can just cancel and continue your work. This way anyone can bypass the Bananascreen password window.

All in all it is still a fun software but not to be used in lieu of your traditional windows password.
