Mobogenie is an Android synchronization application that allows the user to transfer music, pictures, and videos from his phone to his computer. Mobogenie has many useful features for both PC and smartphone. The application can be downloaded from its official site, but it is often promoted via bundled downloads. Once activated, Mobogenie starts displaying various pop-up advertisements and notifications, filled with sponsored links. Mobogenie has multiple functionalities, and if you have installed it willingly, you don’t need to do anything against it. The application is often considered a potentially unwanted program, because of the bundled freeware which is often used by third parties to promote numerous programs.

What Does Mobogenie Do?

According to the information on the official webpage of the product, Mobogenie helps you create a backup of your messages, music, images and other data. The application also works as an app manager that helps you search and download various applications online. Mobogenie presents so many useful features to the end user that you might end up asking yourself what is the problem with this application and how did it get in our radar. The answer is quite simple – bundled downloads.

Mobogenie is often installed with applications like WebDownload Manager and SecretSauce. It is recommended that you always pay attention to the installation process of any program you download online and choose the Advanced installation option, where you can actually see a list of all the applications that get installed along with the one you want on your computer. By simply making such small effort, you can save yourself the trouble of uninstalling unwanted programs later.

In this case, you shouldn’t worry about Mobogenie, but the other applications that may come bundled with it. Bundled downloads are commonly used for the distribution of adware and potentially unwanted freeware.
