Yep, that’s right, FileHippo passed a very significant milestone recently.

Last month we officially passed the 3 billion download mark, and if you don’t mind us saying, we do feel quite proud of that figure.

3 billion downloads

Where It All Began was started by two software enthusiasts in 2004. We’re really proud of what we have achieved over the past 12 years. Our aim was to create a site that was trusted by software enthusiasts and to have a reputation for offering software updates, expert reviews, and news of the best freeware and shareware apps in the market for Windows and Mac OS. We’d like to thank all our users for their continuing support!

Moving Forward

FileHippo continues to hand-pick all software listed on the site so that users can be sure they are downloading the best programs available! In order to keep providing safe and clean downloads, we have teamed up with Avira to give each program a safety guarantee so that our users can download with confidence. Of course, we couldn’t have come this far without our valued users, so we want to say a huge thank you to everyone for their support – here’s to the next billion downloads!

We’re working on some exciting new features so stay tuned!
