PermissionResearch General Information

Over 2 million people around the world are a part of the PermissionResearch community. PermissionResearch is part of ComScore Inc., a large market research company which was founded back in 1936. The goal of the PermissionResearch project is to understand the patterns and trends that exist when individuals surf the internet. A better understanding of how people use the internet serves the ultimate purpose of helping companies make guided future business decisions on the web.

Identifying TV Trends
PermissionResearch also has the goal of measuring how people watch TV. They are collecting data on what shows are watched, recorded and how on-demand programming is used. This ongoing research project will also be used to better enhance the understanding of TV viewing habits.

How to Become a Member!
If you would like to become a member of PermissionResearch you must begin by filling out a registration form, then you will be asked to download a special type of software that will be used to track your habits while you surf the internet. The software will not interfere with any of your surfing, and will run silently in the background. If you would like to participate in the TV tracking research project, you will be guided on how that can be set up.

"virues found"
October 14, 2014 by Brenda from Canada

I tried to download and my security found 8 viruses. Please a use caution. I would stay away from this site.

"Slow but Steady"
August 25, 2014 by Dennis from United States

Originally I got a decent amount of small surveys from them. I frequently qualified and if I do not, I get compensated about 8 cents for trying. Than the rules changed and you had to do offers for 50% of the reward and it became impossible to make money on the site.

"Not much about it..."
February 28, 2014 by Sharon from United States

Well, I signed up months ago, but I didn't want to use the software, just to give them free research. So, if you really like filling out surveys for the hell of it, try them. I get a few per week, screen out half the time, but even when I screen out I get an entry in the contest. That is the only reason they get half a star. The surveys are super hard or long, just kind of boring and there are other people who value my opinion enough to throw me a couple bucks so I'm going to spend my time with those companies instead of filling out surveys in hopes of a unlikely lottery win. Sorry.

"Crappy Software"
October 20, 2013 by Arcadio from United States

I haven't been a member of this site long enough to see if I would win anything but the software is so bad it will slow down your computer. After I uninstalled their software my computer ran a normal speed again. Do NOT install if you want your computer to run like a computer from the stone age.

"Don't bother"
July 02, 2013 by Robert from United Kingdom

I installed a stupid monitor on my computer and all they offer is prize draws. I gave it a few months then thought better of it and removed it.

They offer £30,000 apparently but probably more chance of winning the lottery!
