The project's goal is to provide reliable, objective information about downloadable applications in order to help consumers to make better choices about what they download. The StopBadware team tests and reports on websites and software suggested by the public, noting as badware those programs that engage in potentially objectionable behaviors without adequately informing the user and seeking their consent.
