How Does Gameo Work?
Like any other service, Gameo has a website that is being promoted through various pop-up ads. Once there, it may be possible to play live games on the platform (although when we clicked on a game it started loading and for 15 minutes no game was displayed to us) and also download the Gameo Phone App by clicking on the ‘Get Gameo Now’ button. After that, the website redirects you to Google Play Store page where you can download the Gameo application.
When we compared the content on the mobile apps download page, it raised suspicions since it claims to give instant access to the games you want to play. This is not much of a service, because you can simply do the same thing by downloading the game you want from Google Play store, only instead you are playing it through an app that may or may not collect and use your personal information for profits. More so, the developers claim under ‘How Does It Work’ part that it starts the app from your phone, and if you don’t have it, it downloads it from the Play store. So you have an app that downloads games on your phone and runs them through it.
It is also believed that some of the ads, displaying beautiful game animations that say something similar to ‘Join The Fun’, ‘Play Now’ or others may lead to suspicious sites. You should pay attention when it comes to such applications since they are not considered to be safe. Some are believed to be adware programs that are hidden behind different online installations of web plugins, video software, web players, etc. or sites that may prompt users to type their financial or personal information.
