- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
An excessive amount of pop-up ads on your computer screen means that you most probably have been infected with an adware program. Perhaps you have accidentally installed something like BuyTheApp on your computer, and now you have to suffer constant pop-ups and other types of annoying ads. What’s more, such pop-ups are more than just annoying. They might also expose you to malicious websites via outgoing links that are embedded into them. Therefore, you should consider removing BuyTheApp and all the other similar applications as soon as possible. You need to do everything in your power to avoid potential security threats.
We have mentioned that you must have installed BuyTheApp accidentally because no one would be willing to set up this program just like that. Sure enough, the application tries to convince you that it can provide you with useful shopping information. BuyTheApp will try to prove that it can collect data on discounts and coupon offers across multiple online shopping malls, but that is very far from the truth. The truth is that the only thing this program collects is information on your web browsing history. The application tracks your online activity via tracking cookies to generate your online profile. Once it has enough information gathered, then it unleashes pop-ups galore upon you.
We have seen such a behavioral pattern before, and BuyTheApp does not surprise us in the least. This application belongs to the so-called Multiplug family of adware applications. They may also be called the semi-random name adware because each time a program from this group is installed on a target computer; they capitalize the letters in their names at random. Either way, you can still tell that it is the same BuyTheApp, even if its name in the list of installed programs appears as BUyythTHEaAP or buYthEEAPp.
And if that were not enough, you might also want to scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner to locate other potential threats that must have arrived with BuyTheApp. This application does not have an official homepage. In that aspect, it is no different from StarConcept, TermTrident, AutoTinker, and so on. Lately, all the programs from the Multiplug family have something in common: no homepage. Instead, they are distributed in software packages via third-party installers. The installers known to spread these programs around include InstallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize. Users usually initiate the adware download when they click a fake download link on some torrent or other file-sharing website.
In case you see an odd download process running on your browser, please kill it immediately, otherwise you will end up with BuyTheApp and other unwanted applications on your computer. These programs may not be your worst nightmare, but they are too vulnerable to third-party exploitation to leave them alone. If you care about your system’s security, you will see to it that BuyTheApp and other associated programs are removed for good.
You can uninstall BuyTheApp via Control Panel, but you will also have to delete this extension from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome manually. As far as other unwanted applications are concerned, the most efficient way to get rid of them is to launch an automated spyware removal tool. A computer security program of your choice will not only help you get rid of all the potential threats, but it will protect your PC from similar intruders in the future.
