It is natural for users to customize their online profiles on a number of social networking websites. As a result, there are a lot of applications that are supposed to help users improve your background layouts. AppGraffiti is one of such programs that claim it can give you a hand in customizing your Facebook profile background. However, computer security specialists categorize the application as a potentially unwanted program, and users are discouraged to use it. Thus, you should remove AppGraffiti from your system if you happen to have this application installed.
Omega Partners Ltd publishes AppGraffiti, and the application is available for download at appgraffiti.com. Nevertheless, we are forced to assume that direct download is not the main distribution method for this program. Keeping in mind numerous complaints from computer users, AppGraffiti seems to be bundled with freeware as well. It calls for extra caution when you applications downloaded from unfamiliar websites. After all, you could easily avoid installing the likes of AppGraffiti if you only read all the installation steps carefully.
However, that is not all. Even if you download AppGraffiti from the official website, chances are that you will end up having a number of additional software applications installed. For example, it is known that from the official website AppGraffiti comes bundled with Crawler Toolbar and 24x7 Help as these two additional applications are part of the default installation.
AppGraffiti is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. Once the application is installed on your computer, it adds extensions to your default browser. These extensions can help you change your background on Facebook and Twitter, although the Twitter background function does not seem to work at the moment. Either way, apart from helping you to change your background, AppGraffiti also exhibits an entire palette of annoying behavior. For example, it may display commercial advertisements, consequently slowing down your browser and distributing the Internet browsing process.
Technically, we can see that AppGraffiti is more annoying than dangerous, but it does not mean that you should take this application lightly. Due to the fact that it displays commercial ads, it might expose you to corrupted third-party content for suspicious online marketing purposes, or even worse – cybercriminals could make use of AppGraffiti to promote their malicious content.
Therefore, you have to uninstall AppGraffiti in order to avoid any potential computer security issues. You might need to remove more than just one potentially unwanted program, so to figure out which programs have to be deleted, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner. Eventually, do not hesitate to invest in a licensed antispyware tool if need be.
