Is Overwolf going to get me banned?

It is a top priority for us to be compliant with any game’s terms of service (“ToS”) and to not be intrusive. With that in mind, we are working closely with game publishers to ensure that every app we publish is aligned with their ToS and their 3rd party policies.

Our apps are overlays giving you more information about the game to help you create your own strategy. They do nothing more than a second monitor would do for you. It’s like having Notepad or Fraps open while you play — Overwolf doesn’t interact with any game, and is not bannable.

Overwolf is trusted by pros like Cloud9, Team Liquid and Logitech Gaming. We have 1.5 millions active users monthly who trust our platform.

Make sure that you are using an Overwolf app by downloading it directly from our appstore available at http://store.overwolf.com/apps/

TL;DR: Using Overwolf will not get you banned.
