What did AutoTinker promise you? Whatever it was, it must have been attractive enough for you to install a completely unreliable program. Unfortunately, the services promised by this application are bogus, and it is highly unlikely that you will find it beneficial in any way. Do you expect this program to offer you shopping deals and discounts? Instead of doing that, it will introduce you to unreliable offers and links that might route to potentially dangerous sites. Are you convinced that you need to remove AutoTinker from your operating system? If you are not, you should read our report. Some of the information we provide might be new to you, and, if you read it, we are sure that you will decide to delete this program.

We identify AutoTinker as an advertisement-supported program because it shows ads. In fact, this program can inject ads into any website, which makes it extremely annoying because every time you surf the web you will be greeted by tons of random pop-ups, banners ads, interstitial ads, and other kinds of promotions. Our researchers have learned that many users delete AutoTinker simply because they cannot stand the ads showing up, but, of course, this is not the most important reason to remove this adware from your operating system. Our researchers believe that the most important reason is that this program can introduce you to malicious advertising, popularly known as “malvertising.” This is the reason why we recommend removing Dealsy, Vid Adblock, and hundreds (literally) of AutoTinker clones as well.

AutoTinker was developed by an unknown company using the infamous Justplugit engine. This engine was employed for the creation of all AutoTinker clones as well. These advertisement-supported programs were designed to circumvent removal, perform certain actions without the knowledge or permission of the system’s owner, and to inject ads into the sites that are being visited. Even though this is troubling enough, what is most shocking is that AutoTinker and its clones are associated with unfamiliar and unreliable parties. Justplugit adware is often associated with malicious advertisers who are working to scam users and spread malware. If you do not want to be scammed, and the idea of having to remove other infections does not excite you, you should NOT interact with the ads associated with AutoTinker.

As mentioned previously, AutoTinker might circumvent removal. In reality, it is not that difficult to remove this program if you know what you are doing. If you uninstall this program using the guide below – which is an important first step – you will not have AutoTinker deleted. However, if you also remove malicious files, tracking cookies, and registry entries, we are sure that the removal of this adware will be complete. Unfortunately, the removal of programs installed along with this adware could be even more complicated. If you want to remove AutoTinker and other threats quickly and efficiently, we advise installing an automated malware remover. The best part about this tool is that it will keep all other infections away.
