If you are flooded with third-party ads, you might be infected with IncreaseApp. This application is classified as adware since it is ad-supported and displays lots of annoying ads that can disrupt your browsing experience. But that is not even the worst thing that IncreaseApp can do to you. The presence of this adware can jeopardize your system’s security. Keep in mind that clicking on a potentially corrupted third-party ad is only one of the possibilities of how you can get infected with malware. You need to know that IncreaseApp does not enter your system alone; it brings several other infections that might cause even more trouble for you. Therefore, if you want to keep your system secure, we recommend that you remove IncreaseApp from your computer.
IncreaseApp comes from an ever-growing family of adware applications called the Multiplug family. All the apps in this family, including RepliApp and ConvertApps, are based on the JustPlugIt cross-browser platform. It is one of the most frequently used engines that developers use to create suspicious applications. Since IncreaseApp has no official website and no other website to directly download it from, the most usual distribution method for this adware is via freeware bundles. Third-party installers, such as the notorious InstallRex, put several programs together in a bundle and try to install them by default. It is notorious because it might bundle a variety of malware infections with the usually legitimate, free software users intend to download. This means that if you are infected with IncreaseApp, it is most likely you may find Websearch.searchfix.info and mystartsearch.com on your system as well. These browser hijackers might also cause you security issues; thus, we advise you to remove IncreaseApp and all related infections too.
It is most likely to download such infectious bundles from torrent or other piracy-related websites. These sites display tricky and deceptive download buttons. Clicking on one might install malicious programs silently or redirect you to a potentially compromised website. Therefore, you need to avoid unfamiliar and suspicious file-sharing websites if you do not want to end up having to delete all kinds of threats from your system.
Once IncreaseApp is installed, your web surfing might be constantly distracted by third-party ads, including pop-ups, banners, and coupons. This adware may collect information about your online activities, such as websites you visit, products you may be interested in, links you click, and even your IP address. It may also share the collected data with third-parties so that customized ads can be sent to your screen. It is much easier to lure you into clicking on an ad that practically “reads your mind” and offers you exactly what you might need. The problem with these ads is that they might redirect you to questionable websites where you might be exposed to more malware infections. In order to stay on the safe side, you should delete IncreaseApp from your computer as soon as you can.
If your virtual security is a priority for you, please follow our manual removal instructions below to eliminate the possible threats from your PC. But, if you prefer, you can always go for the more convenient option and install a professional antimalware application that can automatically detect and remove all infections. In addition to that, it will also safeguard your system at all times if you keep it activated and updated.
