Once was a good program. Now better known for poor security, and installing a ton of adware.
June 4, 2019
This used to be the go-to program for android file management, and I used it for a number of years on various tablets. Recently I finally ditched my old stick phone for an android, and installed ES File Explorer so I'd have better access and visibility over my file system. Things were going fine until about two weeks ago when I allowed it to install an update, and I've been plagued by popup ads ever since and now I have to fight my way through them to unlock my phone. I'll probably have to do a factory reset and start over again with all my software. I'm very concerned that this software has already reported back to the mother ship with my phone number and e-mail information and I'm going to be plagued with spam from now on as a result unless I buy some kind of proprietary app to stop it.
