Our statement on EasyBits GO update problem

EasyBits Games has been part of the Skype Extras family since 2006 and we have been steadily improving our offerings since. Our users have made many suggestions during the years and our last update was driven by making as many of the suggested improvements as possible in the EasyBits GO update. Since the update, game sessions have jumped from 850,000 top daily game sessions to over 7 million game sessions globally yesterday.

EasyBits GO is NOT a malware, it is a legitimate application distributed by EasyBits Media as part of our scheduled update.

Unfortunately the user interface in the update installer has defects causing confusing user experience that leads to unintentional installations. EasyBits Media has confirmed this problem and currently has stopped the update process and implementing a fix. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused to Skype users.

Users can remove EasyBits GO using a separate uninstaller that can be downloaded here. It is a digitally signed executable and EasyBits Media warrants that it has been checked for viruses and malware.
