Is Among Us free online?
Yes, and no. Yes, because Among Us can be played for free if you install the game on your Android or iOS device but not when you want to play it on your computer.

Beware of these Scams online!
Internet and search results have found to be useful on numerous occasions but not everything that you search for yields in results that you may want to see. Scattered around among many legitimate websites are some that are employed for nefarious uses and these can range from ads, phishing agents, survey sites, identity theft, and in worst cases, your money.
With the increasing popularity of Among Us, there are now many notorious websites spread across the web that are trying to exploit the game’s widespread acclaim for their own means which not only hurts the game developer’s reputation but also hampers a gamer’s experience.
Upon soaring through the web, we found a bunch of websites some of which claim to let you play Among Us online while some promise you a bunch of custom skins you can load on to the game. None of these sites, however, provide you with what you might be looking for.
If you thought there was a way for you to play Among Us online, we’re sorry to inform you that there’s no such thing as Among Us Online or on the Web yet. The game can only be played officially on Windows, iOS, and Android.
For those of you wondering why these sites claim to let you play online, you should know that it’s all a big scam. In truth, Among Us’ developer – Innersloth hasn’t yet developed a version of the game that can be played directly online neither is there a free version of Among Us to be played on the PC.
If a website claims to offer any of the above things, you need to know that you’re only getting baited by them in return for ads, clickbait revenue, or might even be at risk of losing your personal data or money. The sites that we have shown in this post are the ones you should stay away from if you find them upon searching for Among Us in Google search or any other search tools.
