When a program can be removed manually, it cannot be considered a malicious infection. However, users often think that SourceApp is a dangerous threat that enters their systems stealthily. The truth is, though, that you install SourceApp on your computer yourself. This application is an adware program, so it is more annoying than dangerous, but it is clear that there is no need to keep it on your system. The sooner you remove SourceApp from your computer, the better. Do not forget that you most probably need to terminate more unnecessary programs that have arrived with SourceApp.
The reason we say that there might be more unwanted applications is that SourceApp gets distributed bundled with freeware. You cannot download the app at sourceapp.info even if you want to, because the main website is nothing but a hoax and clicking the download button simply leads you to a blank page. This is exactly what one would expect of an adware application from the SuperWeb family. SourceApp is the newest addition to the group, but there is nothing new about. It is exactly the same as Key Lime Lizard, Rad Rater, Malk Mark, and others. This also means that you need to remove SourceApp just like all the previously released programs.
If we take a look at the main website, it says that SourceApp is a browser extension that offers you the best web browsing technology. However, there is no evidence that would suggest this claim is true. On top of that, sourseapp.info says that SourceApp is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, but if your Google Chrome is up-to-date, SourceApp will be blocked. Google Chrome recognizes this application as a potential security threat and does not allow installing it.
It is true that SourceApp can be considered a potential security threat. While this application does not intend to infect you with malware, it still collects information on your web browsing habits. This information is gathered in order to provide you with customized commercial advertisements. Consequently, if SourceApp ads are exploited by cyber criminals, some of the links embedded in the ads might lead you to corrupted websites. From there, you would be only one step away from severe malware infection.
Therefore, you have to remove SourceApp right now and secure your computer from harm. After manual removal, scan the system with a legitimate antispyware tool. You need to make sure that all the potentially unwanted programs are removed. If you have any questions on how to terminate SourceApp and ensure your system’s stability, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.
