- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
TyphonApp has been classified as an ad-supported program, and it features several malicious traits for which we recommend that you remove it. As an adware-type application, it is bound to render annoying and intrusive advertisements that will only obstruct your browsing. Indeed, it has no added value whatsoever. Moreover, this program’s ads may jeopardize your computer’s security since they promote content of unverified legitimacy, and this content comes from unknown sources. On top of that, like most adware, TyphonApp has been configured to gather certain information about you. We invite you to read this short description for further details about this application.
This adware was designed to work on the three most widely used web browsers — Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. However, in addition to a browser extension, it is also installed as a program. Once installed, it will start rendering commercial advertisements while you browse the web. Like its counterparts (of which there are many) TyphonApp will render advertisements in the form of coupons, banners, pop-ups, in-texts, and other types of advertising. These advertisements can be rendered on most websites, and they might negatively affect your browsing experience since this application will slow down loading times.
However, our biggest concern is that these annoying advertisements can be deceiving. They may present malicious software as legitimate which might cause severe infections. For example, it may promote a seemingly legitimate antimalware which is actually a rogue program that will wreak havoc on your computer. Nevertheless, such cases are quite rare, since, in most cases, this program promotes “shopping assistants” that translate to adware. So your computer can be flooded with more adware.
We are also very concerned with TyphonApp’s ability to gather information about its users. We want to inform you that this program has been set to gather certain information, such as your Internet Protocol address, Internet Service Provider, browser type, operating system type, and search and browsing history to customize the promoted content for a particular demographic and browsing preference. All of this is done to generate as much adverting revenue as possible because we have found that this program uses the pay-per-click (PPC) payment system, so users have to click the ads for the developers to get paid. So, as you can see, this adware will not benefit you, but its dishonest developers and other parties involved. So on that note, let us discuss its developers.
TyphonApp was developed by a software developing company called JustPlugIt Ltd. This infamous developer is also known for other malicious releases, such as LowerPrice, CoupontasticOffers, Kavapuller Ads, NiceAndFun, and many others. Indeed, this developer has responsible for rolling out many applications. They are built using the so-called JustPlugIt engine, but there have been tailored for different for customers who have different needs. Also, the developers give their clients full control over the applications, so it is no surprise that they promote malicious content.
Furthermore, the so-called owners of TyphonApp and other applications from JustPlugIt get to choose the dissemination method. However, it seems that JustPlugIt also has that covered for indecisive clients, since we long have observed a trend for this developer’s programs being bundled with InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers. These installers are set to install software bundles. Therefore, there is usually one application (usually a potentially unwanted program) that serves as bait that the unsuspecting users are expected to install. Little do they know that it was bundled with other programs. So this is how this application and its counterparts can enter your computer. Therefore, you should always select advanced installation settings to opt out the installation of additional software.
In conclusion, TyphonApp is just another adware-type program released by the infamous JustPlugIt. This program’s purpose is to display commercial advertisements that are bound to feature fictitious ads that may infect your PC with more malware. Furthermore, it has been set to collect information about you to tailor the ads to generate more adverting revenue. Also, this program is distributed using deceptive software bundling methods, so do not hesitate to remove this adware.
