- it's bundled with some notebook hardware from lenovo, acer and hp
- So far, it seems safe.
- Unless you made a purchase trough them, or are using one of the app it installed, it's not necessary to have it. Note that most of the pokki bundled app would work perfectly fine if reinstalled outside of pokki.
- It is safe to remove it after removing the app installed trough it.

on some setup, I've seen no pokki app preinstalled, on some other I've seen a flood of games and Spotify. You need to launch the pokki app to see for yourself.

The big question might be: why are your users installing it?  It is not on any of our Lenovo computers at our clients.
