We have mentioned already that WorkApp does not have an official homepage. However, some programs from this group do happen to have their homepages. WorkApp comes from a large group of programs that is called the Multiplug family. These adware applications are based on the JustPlugIt engine, and they are usually distributed through the InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers. In other words, WorkApp functions just like its predecessors that include such applications like AllDayPrice, Best Save, RocketCoupon, and so on.
This also implies that WorkApp gets distributed with freeware apps that users download from file-sharing websites. Our computer security researchers say that users most often download and install WorkApp on their computers when they click fake download buttons on torrent and other p2p websites. Hence, if you often visit such websites, you should be very careful about what you click there and what programs you download. What’s more, whenever you run and installation wizard, be sure to read all the setup steps carefully, because WorkApp might INFORM you about the oncoming installation. The problem is that, most of the time; users are too hasty to pay attention to everything the installation wizard has to say. As a result, they end up with such programs like WorkApp on their computers.
WorkApp functions like a browser extension, so when it gets installed your system, an extension will be added to your default browser. This adware program is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. However, it is highly possible that the newer versions of the Google Chrome might block the program under the security grounds.
WorkApp will collect information on what websites you visit, and then it will process the data in order to display commercial advertisements. With this program on your computer, you will soon notice an increase of annoying pop-ups on your web browser. It is important to avoid clicking any pop-ups provided by WorkApp because there is no way to guarantee that their content is safe. As mentioned above, WorkApp could be exploited by cyber criminals, and so its pop-ups might as well be embedded with corrupted outgoing links that lead to malware-related websites.
