Unfriend Alert

Unfriend Alert is an application that promises to notify you every time someone “unfriends” you in social media. There are hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands, of programs that promise users to help them figure out who view their profiles or remove them from friends’ lists, but most of them are completely fictitious. Unfortunately, unreliable parties know how curious users are, which is why they continuously create programs that only appear to offer interesting services. Unfortunately, Unfriend Alert is one of these useless programs as well, and we suggest deleting it from your PC. Do you know how to remove Unfriend Alert?

Have you downloaded Unfriend Alert from If you have, have you been offered other programs? According to the information provided on the website, “additional offers” could be presented to you. Even though we cannot guarantee that all programs associated with Unfriend Alert are malicious, we do not recommend installing unfamiliar search tools, browser extensions, and other programs. If you are interested in this software, you should at least research it. After all, the last thing you need is more infections attacking your operating system, because you would be the one removing them.

Our researchers know how to delete Unfriend Alert because this program is identical to Finance Alert, Celebrity Alert, News Alert, and other similar programs. All of them are identified as adware – which is short for advertisement-supported software – because they inject ads. Most users are aware of this because Unfriend Alert is presented as a free program that “may show advertisements.” Of course, if you were introduced to this adware via a third-party software bundle, you might have been misinformed about this program. In either case, if you want to get rid of the suspicious, unpredictable advertisements, you must remove Unfriend Alert from your operating system along with the data-collecting HTTP cookies.

If you ignore the fact that Unfriend Alert can open up security backdoors and spy on you, this ad-supported program is not extremely malicious. Unfortunately, the programs installed along with this adware could be. The only way to know that malware does exist on your PC is by running a legitimate malware scanner. A legitimate scanner will identify Unfriend Alert as a threat as well because software capable of spying on users and injecting third-party ads is always considered to be quite risky. Note that even though you can delete Unfriend Alert cookies to stop the spying, they might be restored if you do not remove Unfriend Alert files.

Instead of using browser add-ons, as most ad-supported programs do, Unfriend Alert uses background processes to inject ads. In order to get rid of these processes, you need to delete Unfriend Alert files. It is most likely that these files will be automatically deleted after you uninstall this adware from your Windows operating system, but you should use a scanner to make sure that no leftovers have persisted. If you find that you need to remove Unfriend Alert leftovers or other undesirable programs and infections, install security software that will take care of malware for you, instead of wasting time with the manual removal.
