- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
BabyMegs is a cleverly marketed adware-type program that you ought to remove because it will subject you to annoying advertisements and get your computer infected with additional malware. Thus, it is an untrustworthy application, and its promoted content may not always be legitimate. It is advertised as a free guide for first-time parents that offers tips and whatnot, but, as we have learned, that is a blatant lie. Therefore, if you want to keep your computer secure and out of harm’s way, then you have to delete BabyMegs and its accompanying malware.
We have learned that this program does not have an official developer which makes it all the more unreliable. Its website Babymegs.com does not feature any information regarding the company that developed it. Therefore, we suspect that it was created by a group of people that have yet to establish a company that would claim to specialize in web monetization.
This adware’s website also features commercial content which is region-specific, so we cannot verify or deny that all of the ads are malicious. This website features BabyMegs's standalone installer. However, this installer has something to hide. While testing this adware we found that this installer comes bundled with additional malware, such as Search Know, Sweet-page.com, and System Healer. Nevertheless, the additional malware may vary. Our research has also revealed that this application is being promoted via browser hijackers that promote it via their search results.
If you install this program on your computer, then here is what you will get. It will run in the background and render a window that features promotional links. It promotes websites such as Thebump.com, and other websites that are legitimate and pose no threat to your system’s security. However, this may not always be the case, especially when we know that it comes bundled with other adware and browser hijackers. This really tells a lot about where this program is coming from.
While testing BabyMegs we found that it can force open Internet Explorer and redirect you to its promoted websites. Actions such as this are unacceptable because it may redirect to a malicious website and if you click anything on it, your computer may become infected with even more malware. In the worst case scenario, your PC might become infected with ransomware, spyware, rogue applications, and so on. And, you will have a hard time dealing with those kinds of infections.
It probably goes without saying that BabyMegs's real purpose is to make money for its secretive developers. We believe that it may use the Pay-per-click system which requires users to click on the ad for the developers to get paid. Therefore, we believe that this program may collect certain information about you which might include your IP address, search history, and browsing history among other things. This and other information is used to tailor the promoted content based your browsing habits, personal interests, and demographic information.
All in all, our research has proved that BabyMegs is a useless piece of software that you can do without. Its secretive developers promote it as a tip providing tool, but in reality, it is just another adware-type infection. It will subject you to commercial content via its interface window or Internet Explorer, and the ads are not only annoying but also pose a danger to your computer’s security. Also, it will collect information about you to make more money. So what do you get in return? Well, you get nothing. Therefore, we suggest removing BabyMegs as soon as possible. Please use our guide to get rid of it manually or download our recommended software.
