I don't download apps that a survey requests or the apps that pop up warning you that your computer is at risk if you don't download their app.  Occasionally I've gotten a pop up saying that I am the "fill in the magic number here" visitor and have won $500 gift card, etc.  Those always make me leary too.

I don't participate in those types of surveys - I already have too many apps, etc on my phone.

It depends on the type of app. When I do install an app, it seemed like a lucrative idea at the time. But then, I do not make the money that I would have hoped and thus, I un-install it days later.

Do you down load apps they want you to.. ? When a survey asks you to add a app to your computer do you do it ? 

NO.  Never have and never will.  I have considered downloading a game before but never done it.

No, I don't download apps on my computer at all through FC because I don't know whether they have viruses or not. I do have userzoom survey tool for surveys with FC on my computer. :clover:

I don't really like downloading the apps, too much potential for it to be spyware. And I just don't want to add one more thing to it. Too much trouble for me personally.

 I just move on to another survey. I never download an app from this site or any other site  in order to take a survey.  As a general rule I do not like downloading any apps unless I absolutely have to and it must be a trusted site.  :rainbow: :peace: :wave:

Nope.  I used to, and I'd have trouble uninstalling them.  Or it'd take forever to install and then disqualify me.  Plus you run the risk of spyware, viruses, and other assorted yucks.  Not worth it.

No it is too much trouble and you don't know how secure they are.

No never have and don't plan to.  I would like to get rid of some of the ones I do have.
