    Is BlueStacks gaming app safe?


    I installed something called BlueStacks gaming app because you are supposed to be able to get Plants vs Zombies 2 for your PC, to play free, with this app. I Googled it and found many sources that said it's safe, but after installation I clicked on it and I keep getting the attached. Does this mean I should not use it or can I do some type of adjustment so that I can use it?

    Well the whole purpose of the BlueStacks platform is to play Android based games on PC, seeing that PVZ2 is a mobile game it makes sense. I've never used it myself as I loathe mobile free-to-play games, but don't you just simply launch the game? Or do you need to launch the app player to play it?

    I think I need to launch this app player I installed to play and when I try to open it I get the page I attached.

    There seems to be a few compatibility issues with this app on W10, and it's quite unstable so I recommend just using your Smartphone really. But here are the most common solutions to this that you can try:

    1.) Uninstall the application How can I uninstall BlueStacks completely? BlueStacks Support
    2.) Install the latest 3n version Bluestacks - The Best Android Emulator on PC as Rated by You
    3.) Make sure no anti-virus software is denying access to it, e.g Avast, Avira, AVG.
    4.) Don't change the API format (DirectX/OpenGL)
    5.) Run the app player in compatibility mode https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ams-compatible

    I use to use Bluestacks to run android apps on my PC. It was so slow and buggy. I now use Memu and it works great.

    BlueStacks is a free cross-platform Android Emulator. In simpler terms, itís like a virtual Android phone running on your Mac or Windows PC.
    Yes, Bluestacks is completely safe to use. I had also used it.
    Bluestacks is basically a Android Emulator for PC which enables the Windows OS user to run Android apps on his Windows OS system.
    If you have any doubt you can read this post "Is BlueStacks Safe" to know about bluestacks benefits.

    Memu is also an Android phone emulator. Runs as a phone on your PC. Faster and more reliable than BlueStacks. I have been using it for a long time using it for KIK on pc instead of my phone. Haven't tried some of the other apps though.

    Yes, Bluestacks is completely safe, but like some of the members here mentioned, Memu is another decent choice.

    I've been using Bluestacks for about a week, and it seems to be safe. Yesterday, I downloaded MEmu, and Malwarebytes blocked it, so tread carefully. You might find this article helpful.

    Edit: I should add that, at first, Avast didn't find anything wrong with MEmu, but, after I white listed it in MB, Avast blocked the installer.
