ScanTack

ScanTack is a browser extension which belongs to a faction of adware – advertisement supported software. The Privacy Policy and a brief overview related to this application can be found on scantack.net; however, the website does not represent a working download link. If you click the displayed Start Now! button, you will face no action. Unfortunately, the developer of the program SuperWeb LLC has decided to use other distribution methods, and they are quite questionable. As soon as it does manage to get in, the program activates web cookies to collect information about your activity so that supposedly beneficial, personally designed ads could be presented. Unfortunately, the flooding ads are the most important reason ScanTack removal should be performed.

Instead of promoting ScanTack on its official download page, the developer of the application has chosen the services of third-party software publishers. Just like Bomlabio, Okiitan, PlurPush, and other SuperWeb applications which require removal as well, ScanTack always comes bundled with some random third-party installers. Do you think this is not something you should worry about? If so – you are completely wrong. Authentic software distributors use bundled installers, but schemers may use them as well. It is quite possible that the third party advertisers who are affiliated to the suspicious extension will make sure to attach it to some unreliable freeware installers. Needless to say, this activity is highly suspicious because it may lead to the infiltration of other programs you will need to delete.

The cookies installed by ScanTack are meant to discover what you are interested in, how you browse the web and what information you might be allured to. This kind of data is shared with the affiliated advertisers, and they use it to display supposedly useful offers. Needless to say, it would be great to find a profitable deal on a product you have randomly researched. Unfortunately, this is not exactly how ScanTack works. It is quite unlikely that you will be presented with beneficial deals or coupons, as offers to install unfamiliar programs, reveal personal information or use some suspicious services will flood instead. Besides being useless, these offers could even hide links to corrupted websites.

You can delete ScanTack from the operating system manually or you can use automatic malware removal software instead. We are sure you realize which of the options is considered to be more beneficial. If you follow the manual removal guides, only the visible portion of the undesirable program will be deleted. What is more, other potentially existing threats will continue running. Therefore, you should click the download button below and acquire a legitimate security tool/malware remover.
