SkyWidget is an application you may have installed onto your browsers by accident. Even if you have installed the app onto your PC yourself, it is most likely that you know little about it, and you do not know how it works. If you did understand the risks related to this advertisement-supported program, we are sure you would not install it onto your operating system. Unfortunately, if you do not remove SkyWidget after installing it, this app could be employed to spy on you.

According to our expert adware researchers, SkyWidget could be installed packaged with other programs, including malicious software. If you believe that the app has been installed onto your PC illegally, you must delete it right away. It is also important to remove the unreliable and malicious programs installed together with the suspicious application. Do not ignore the fact that SkyWidget could have been installed alongside the malicious software that requires removal, because the longer this software remains active on your operating system, the more vulnerable your virtual security will be.

Even though SkyWidget could be installed onto any computer, the program has been built for the Asian market. In most cases, users face the activity of this application when browsing the Korean search engines. Whether you face banner or pop-up advertisements, you have to make sure that you do not click on any of them. If you do, it is most likely that you will face security issues of some sort. Therefore, you need to make sure that you delete SkyWidget as soon as you discover the first suspicious offer.

Besides flooding the search pages you browse with the potentially unreliable advertisements, SkyWidget can install the data-tracking cookies and transmit certain data to remote servers. This is considered to be quite dangerous, because it is not clear what kind of information SkyWidget can collect, store, or share. Keep in mind that these cookies may require individual removal, meaning that the cookies may remain active even after you delete SkyWidget from your PC, especially if you choose the manual removal option.

You can try to delete SkyWidget from your operating system manually. We have prepared a guide that should help you get rid of the suspicious ad-supported program for good. Needless to say, if the removal of the suspicious program is not successful, it is most likely that the undesirable and intrusive activity will not be terminated. If you cannot ensure the successful removal of all existing threats, we urge you to install a legit automatic malware removal application.
