- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
Wordinator, no matter how catchy the name is for an app, has been categorized as adware by our researchers. It has been found that this program can show different kinds of disrupting third-party advertisements. Clicking on a potentially unreliable ad might result in serious security and privacy breaches. It is very important to be aware of the underlying risks. That is exactly why our specialists analyzed this application and we share all the findings with you. We are certain that by the end of the article you will see no reason why should not remove Wordinator immediately.
You can find some promotional information about Wordinator on its website, wordinatorapp.com, but interestingly enough, there is no option to download it. Not one single button or link. So, you might ask yourself “how do the developers want me to download their promoted product?” It is possible that they do not even want you to be able to download it directly because they use a more covert method for delivering their program onto computers. This, of course, makes Wordinator a suspicious app already. It is quite possible that this adware is spread in free software bundles. This might mean that this adware is not the only infection you have to worry about. Some bundles are packed with several malware infections with the intention of infiltrating the computers of unwary users. If you are unlucky, deleting Wordinator will not be enough to restore system health; you will also need to use a reliable scanner to detect all other potential threats.
Wordinator claims to be a very useful application that can make searching and translating information online easy by showing an in-page result window once you highlight any text you see online. While all this sounds really awesome, our researchers have found that this app functions suspiciously and may flood your screen with not only pop-up ads and banner ads, but also pop-under ads and in-text link ads. This adware can convert words on the pages you visit into hyperlinks that are linked to advertisements. It may also use the information it collects about you to determine which words would be likely to catch your attention. The same way third parties can use this information to return targeted ads to your screen so that you would be more inclined to click on them. However, this is a dangerous territory. These ads and the adware can be exploited by schemers who might want to get your personal or banking details to commit a diversity of online frauds. You are definitely better off not keeping this adware on your computer, so we recommend removing Wordinator as soon as you can.
The so-called silver lining in Wordinator’s case is definitely the removal part. Practically, it is just a few clicks away since you can uninstall it via Control Panel. If you do not know how to do that, please read our instructions below. But you need to know that this will not be the end of the road. There may be other infections still active in the background. It is important that you install a trustworthy antimalware tool to make sure that your system is clean and your security is restored. We also recommend that you refrain from clicking on third-party ads in general and visiting unknown or suspicious websites. Although most security tools can block ads and malicious websites, it is best not to risk the chance of encountering a yet unknown infection.
