What is EULAscan?
Simply put, EULAscan is a place where you may comment on End User License
Agreements (known as EULAs), or read comments left by others.
Have you found something suspicious in a EULA, and want to let others know
about it? Add your comments to the site.
Are you about to install a new program, and want to see if that 100 page EULA
has something in it that you should be aware of? Search on the product's name,
and read what other people have said.
Why do people agree to EULAs without reading them? The two main concerns are
comprehension and time. EULAscan hopes to combat that by letting the community

Please contribute comments when you can. The more you share, the smarter the

3. A comment about your rating. Why do you feel the EULA is good or bad? Is it
standard fare, nothing to worry about? Does it try to hide the fact that it's
installing spyware? If possible, please quote the section of the EULA you're
