High Unite

Although High Unite claims that the ads are necessary to make the program free of charge, it sounds rather ridiculous because its primary function is to display commercial advertisements. An enormous amount of ads will not only annoy you, but it might cause damage to your computer too. Obviously, the program will never have any useful features as it is yet another clone of similar older adware programs such as Discovery App, High Stairs, Wander Burst, etc. and in the future, there will be even more of them. Therefore, read the article to learn more about High Unite and adware in general. Also, it would be better to delete this worthless application, for that reason we will provide you with the removal instructions below the article.

If you have Google Chrome installed in your system, then you should have already noticed that the adware does not work on this browser as it is compatible only with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. The program itself does not have any separate window, because it settles as a browser extension. Therefore, you will see High Unite’s name only on the ads it displays.

The adware has its official website, which contains the software’s End User License Agreement (EULA) and Privacy Policy. Both of these documents state that if you download the application, then you agree with the provided terms. As a result, you allow the adware to update itself, download new versions or additional features without your knowledge. Normally, legitimate software only reminds you about updates or available new versions, and you can decide on your own whether to install it or not. So the fact that High Unite does not give you any choice is suspicious itself.

Unfortunately, you might have installed this adware without realizing it as many other users did. The application can spread though bundled downloads, meaning it could be installed with another software at the same time. Usually, such setup wizards are made in a way that it is hard to notice these other programs, especially if you rush through the installation steps.

Furthermore, as you browse you will see numerous pop-ups, full-screen windows, modified search results with sponsored links, etc. Mainly, they will promote third party websites or products. While clicking on such content you might be redirected to harmful websites that could try to gather your sensitive information, sell fake software or infect your computer with malware. Also, the adware will gather information related to your visited websites, clicked ads, bought items, and so on. However, it could collect your private information too with a condition you provide it yourself. Although you might think it is impossible, we know a few ways it can be done. For instance, contacting High Unite requires your personal information like your name, email, etc. and that would be considered as data you give away willingly. Moreover, you can reveal your sensitive information while buying items online on a third party website, because they can collect your data either with the knowledge of High Unite or not, as third party websites have their own Privacy Policies. The sensitive information could contain your credit card passwords, so third party could record it while you are purchasing items from their fake e-shop and use it to login in your bank account and steal money from inside. Therefore, it is always safer to avoid suspicious ads and buy items from a well-known seller you can trust.

All things considered, High Unite does not seem like a trustworthy software or a useful tool that you would like to keep in your system. As you realize there are many possible harmful effects and it is only a matter of time till something goes wrong. It would be advisable to get rid of it as fast as you can and to scan your computer if you have visited any third party websites while High Unite was installed.
