    "Tries to install a .EXE when you're uninstalling it!!!!"

    February 3, 2012  |   By Bobelly628

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    NONE!!! this program DEMANDS you login with your Facebook account. If you don't have one they DEMAND create a Facebook account and only THEN can you create a WeFi account and use this program. I promptly went to my control panel to uninstall and my antivirus software kept popping up for my permission. I noticed it was requesting "permission" to install a .exe - executable program!!! Pretty slick, it tried x2 and I told my antivirus program to block it and it uninstalled it.I am now running a complete scan of my computer!

    Cons

    Avoid like the PLAQUE!!!!! It demands you give then access to your Facebook login BEFORE you can even use this service. Diabolical. Then if you try to unistall it trys to run a executable .exe program.

    Will no longer download ANYTHING from CNET.If you notice they no longer have the disclaimer that the download is free from viruses and malware!

    BEWARED if you download or try to uninstall this program to run a FULL SYSTEM SCAN for what it installed AFTER you removed it

    Summary

    Now more CNET downloads for me. They no longer post that their downloads are guaranteed free of malware or virus.

    "This is malware that copies itself when you uninstall."

    January 25, 2012  |   By jettrink2010

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    None I have discovered.

    Cons

    When I learned that We Fi was of no use to me I attempted to uninstall with Revo Uninstaller only to get a pop up warning me that the app was copying itself and moving to other parts of my laptop. After tracking down the root file and trying to delete it manually I received a Windows pop up warning me that We Fi was working with other parts of my OS and removing it might cause severe damage. Further, when logging on We Fi demands my password before I can access my desktop. I don't really know what malware sort of evils it might be performing.

    "Installed but then removed it."

    December 29, 2011  |   By Terpi

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    Easy to install and it in itself worked well.

    Cons

    Conflict with Google Chrome. Couldn't go to full page. Couldn't use the tab bar like I normally do (sliding a bookmark to the link page didn't work at all).
    I know this was the problem because Google worked properly when I removed it.

    "It's crap. You neet to be a fan of social networks."

    November 5, 2011  |   By baddco

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    There are no Pros... this is bogus crap.

    Cons

    In order for it to function you need to create a Facebook account. I've had more issues with FB. I'm not going there just to get a download.

    Summary

    I'm very upset with Cnet for playing along with thier game.

    "Contains Spyware"

    October 4, 2011  |   By MrBoss333

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    none, because my built in wifi radar on laptop finds hotspots if there are any

    Cons

    After installing this I suddenly had Spywarmy or Adware on my laptop, from text-enhance.com that links to ads in a text on any website you look at.. when I un-installed wefi, it disappeared agin, GOOD. You Don't need wefi.

    "Great for identifying and connecting to wi-fi hotspots"

    August 2, 2011  |   By wiggsjw

    Version: WeFi 4.0.1.0

    Pros

    This is especially good at linking to hotspots where web sign-on is required for access. We-fi will launch the browser to complete this. I use this both on my netbook and android phone.

    Cons

    There are no cons.

    Summary

    This is one of the best free applications for computers and androids. I use it all the time.
