We gathered up the questions you guys have been bothered with
Overwolf makes it possible to create legendary apps for gamers. We provide app developers the tech to bring their apps in-game, track game events in real-time, and make an honest living off their creations.
As a gamer, when you use an app developed on the Overwolf platform you know you’re safe. We work closely with every app developer to make sure all apps meet our high quality standard, and comply with the terms defined by the game publisher.
In one word - cheats. If we’d open source our tech, or just provide an engine like Unity does for games, we won’t be able to make sure some developers don’t use it to create cheats. See how we work with Riot Games here.
That’s easy. The answer is no. We work closely with game publishers and app developers alike, to make sure all apps on Overwolf comply with the terms of the games. Read more about how we keep gamers safe from bans here.
No, it shouldn’t. We’ve spent years engineering the sh@# out of our platform to make sure it’s lag free. However, in rare cases FPS issues can occur when using multiple overlay programs at once. If you ever experience an FPS issue related strictly to Overwolf, help us investigate it and we will be happy to reward you with $10 worth of Riot Points, or Steam wallet code (see our support email below).
No. When you install an app designed for a specific game, Overwolf will only be enabled for that game, and won’t affect any other game. You can always set the games for which Overwolf is enabled in the Overwolf settings screen.
Sure. You can set the games for which Overwolf is enabled in the Overwolf settings screen.
No. We don’t sell personal data and we never will. Overwolf and app developers make a living from showing ads and from paid subscriptions. The ONLY way we make money off data (and it's very little, about 2% of our total revenue) is by selling aggregated, non personal reports to a company called NewZoo, which provides general insights and trends about the gaming market. See an example here.
Overwolf and app developers make a living by displaying ads within the apps. We also just rolled out a paid subscription service, for gamers who prefer an ads-free experience.
Funny that you asked. We just rolled out a paid subscription service for gamers who prefer an ads-free experience. For now there’s only a handful of apps which support it, but we expect many apps to support subscriptions soon.
You can exit Overwolf by right-clicking on the Overwolf icon in the Windows tray and choosing “Exit Overwolf”. You can set whether Overwolf starts on windows startup through the Overwolf settings screen.
You can easily uninstall Overwolf through the standard Windows “Add or remove programs” screen. You can choose to uninstall a specific app or the Overwolf program entirely.
