Danger level 6
Type: Tracking Cookie


If you use an ordinary web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome to surf the Internet, it could have picked up BlueMountain. You do not need to do anything if it turns out to be true because it is not malicious for sure. Specialists working at say that it should not cause any security-related problems either. BlueMountain is not some kind of malicious application. Instead, specialists have categorized it as a tracking cookie. Generally speaking, these cookies are not dangerous unless they are employed to spy on users. Usually, users encounter cookies that spy on them if they visit untrustworthy websites, including P2P websites and adult content websites, or click on random ads they are presented with. BlueMountain is not one of those tracking cookies that cause concern, but if you have found it listed next to other active cookies, feel free to remove it if you do not like the idea of being tracked every day. Tracking cookies sit in users’ web browsers and remember certain pieces of information until they simply expire, so, theoretically, BlueMountain should become inactive one day even if you do not do anything, but, of course, it would be best to deactivate it by yourself if you do not feel very comfortable knowing that this particular cookie is active on your system.

Websites are no longer just code and content these days. They also use cookies that are placed on visitors’ web browsers after they open them. Clicking on certain ads, buttons, and links might result in the appearance of a cookie that collects information too. Technically, cookies are plain text files that remember lots of details, including language preferences, login information, and even the contents of a shopping cart. Also, they gather information about users’ online behavior and what they click on. Usually, cookies do not collect personally-identifiable information; however, you should be careful with malicious cookies used by cyber criminals – they might spy on you and even receive some personal details. Heaven knows what they will do with the data received. Theoretically, it might be even involved in malicious attacks. BlueMountain is not one of those dangerous cookies. That is, it will not steal the personal information from your computer, but you should remove it if you do not want any website to keep information about you. Do not forget that your browser may be holding other cookies keeping some details too!

Specialists suspect that BlueMountain may be associated with either or Have you visited any of these websites recently and clicked the Accept Cookies button? If so, there is nothing surprising about the presence of BlueMountain on the web browser you use. Alternatively, you could have clicked on a random advertisement or a button. Specialists say that users usually do not even have to click on ads/buttons/links to end up with a tracking cookie on their browsers. It is often enough to load the page using cookies. If the specific cookie is not found on the web browser, it can be created by the website with the intention of keeping some information about the user’s activities, habits, interests, and preferences. While there are so many harmless cookies, including BlueMountain, out there, it is possible that cyber criminals use some cookies to obtain some information about visitors. They might set up a fake website for this reason or create malicious ads. Therefore, if you ever find yourself on a suspicious website or realize that you have just clicked on some kind of unreliable commercial advertisement, clear all cookies from the web browser you use. You will remove those that are possibly used by cyber criminals to spy on you. The web is full of malware that is several times more dangerous than tracking cookies, so you definitely cannot keep your system unprotected if you browse the web every day.

BlueMountain does not seem to be a dangerous tracking cookie, but you should remove it if you know nothing about its appearance and cannot indicate a specific website that has dropped it on your computer. Its removal will not change anything in your life, and we are sure your web browsing experience will not be diminished. Please find our instructions for the manual BlueMountain removal below.
