Yawtix comes from a huge family of adware applications. It is developed by SuperWeb LLC, and this program is practically identical to ResultsBay, TowerTil, loffinam and many other similar programs. The main reason Yawtix enters your computer is financial profit. This application tries to help its creators make some money. It does not employ illegal tactics to achieve that, but it is better to be safe than sorry. You should remove Yawtix from your computer immediately because adware programs might lead to serious computer security problems even if they do not intend to infect you with malware.
If you go to Yawtix.com, which is the official homepage for Yawtix, you will see that this program is presented as a browser plug-in that can improve your web search experience. It also says that with Yawtix installed on your PC, you will be able to save money on your purchases online. The main website claims that this application is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. However, once the program was run, our research team noticed that it installed extensions on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer only. Not to mention that these add-ons did not work as promised.
It is not surprising that the direct download button does not work at the official homepage – none of the SuperWeb programs can be downloaded at their official web pages. Instead, Yawtix travels bundled with third-party installers and downloaders. It means that this program always arrives with other applications, and so you are bound to have multiple unwanted programs installed on your PC at the moment. If you want to figure out how many unwanted programs you have, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner.
As far as Yawtix is concerned, after installation it will start collecting information on your web browsing habits. When enough data is collected, the program will display banner ads on various websites and shopping suggestions on online shopping malls (like bestbuy.com, amazon.com, ebay.com, etc.). It may seem that Yawtix wants to provide you with relevant information on your favorite goods. However, this program makes use of third party advertising network to generate pop-up content, and no one can guarantee that it is 100% safe.
You should not click Yawtix ads because it might redirect you to suspicious websites related to various online marketing schemes and perhaps even malware distribution. To ensure your system’s security, remove Yawtix via Control Panel, and then scan your PC with a licensed antispyware tool that will safeguard the system from similar threats in the future. Do not forget that you most probably have more than just one unwanted program to remove. Take your computer security seriously!
