What is PC Matic?

PC Matic is promoted as a tool that can provide your computer with superior protection compared to other anti-malware tools you can acquire online. That seems like a bold statement to make for an application that uses the bundling distribution method to spread on the Internet. Although it has an official page where its description as the “superior tool” can be found, in reality the app also gets attached to other freeware and often gets installed unnoticed by the user. If the product were indeed so beneficial, it would certainly not need to use deceptive distribution methods. That is why we advise that you delete PC Matic and put your trust into more reputable software.
