Hi Everyone,

I'm sorry to hear people have been getting virus warnings in this game. I want to assure everyone that all of our games are guaranteed to be virus free, and so any of these messages are false positives. False virus messages like these may occur if there's a miscommunication with the antivirus software that causes it to read a safe file as harmful. The following help article has more details on these messages:

Virus Messages

When someone receives a message like this, we highly recommend contacting our Technical Support Team HERE with some information about the message. Our Reps are always willing to help, and the Support Team can work with the antivirus company to work through this issue.

When getting in touch with them, we recommend including a screenshot of the message if possible, as well as some details on what's occurring. Specifically:

1. Title of the game that the message is coming up in.
2. Name of the antivirus program being used.
3. Content of the message alert.
4. Big Fish Games file that's being detected as harmful.

Additionally, the following help article has steps for taking a screenshot to send in:
