When an application is called Information Cloud, you would expect it to provide you with the most relevant information you could think of. Alas, Information Cloud is nothing but an adware application that collects information on your web browsing habits and then shares this information with unreliable third parties. Any security-minded computer user would want to remove Information Cloud right away, and this is exactly what you are supposed to do. If you need any assistance with adware removal, please leave us a comment below this description. Do not ignore Information Cloud just because it is not a direct computer security threat.
Our security experts say that Information Cloud is the newest adware infection from the SuperWeb family, so it is practically identical to Spice Nice, Sad Cloud, Plain Savings, and other applications from the group that have appeared recently. Information Cloud may be promoted as a useful browser extension that can improve your overall web browsing experience, but that is not true. To start with, you cannot even download the application from informationcloudapp.com. No reliable application would trick you into downloading and installing it on your computer, but sometimes it seems that Information Cloud does exactly that because it gets distributed in software bundles.
From this, we can see that, most of the time, users install Information Cloud on their computers willingly, but unwittingly. You most probably were looking for some other application at a third-party file sharing website, and you could not even imagine that the program you have recently installed came with some additional applications you neither need nor want.
To tell you the truth, Information Cloud is more annoying than dangerous, but it is important that you remove Information Cloud as soon as possible because adware programs could be easily misused by unreliable third parties. This might happen because this application does not check what kind of content gets embedded in its ads. Information Cloud relies on a third-party advertising network for the ad content, and so if cyber criminals know (and they most certainly do) how to make use of the Information Cloud’s ads to promote their content, sooner rather than later you could end up getting infected with malware.
Needless to say, that is the worst case scenario and, more often than not, adware apps are just annoying nuisances that cannot infect you with malware directly. Nevertheless, you should not take any chances. The sooner you remove Information Cloud from your system, the better.
After manual removal, do not forget to scan your PC with a licensed antispyware application, as you also need to terminate other potential threats that might be running on your system. Don’t forget that adware programs come in packs, and you should take them seriously!
