- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
We want to inform you that BillBreak is anything but a program that will help you save money. We have categorized it as adware and you ought to remove it as soon as you can. Its developers have employed deceptive marketing practices to fool you and make you think that it is a legitimate program when it is not. It is nothing short of an infection that can enter your computer without your authorization and subject you to third-party advertisements which can come from questionable sources. In addition to that, this application will collect non-personal information about you and use it to advance its developers’ agenda.
BillBreak is a product of Injekt LLC, a software-developing company based in Carlsbad, California, USA. We and other online security analysts are well aware of this company’s existence because Injekt is one of the biggest producers of ad-supported software out there. This company releases adware similar to this one on a regular basis, so when we talk about BillBreak, the same can be said about Bronze Aid, Discover Treasure, Sonic Train, and many others. Although there can be some variations and differences between these programs, but, nevertheless, the Injekt engine is the core of each of that company’s browser extensions.
Our analysis has revealed that this adware is currently being disseminated using malicious software installers. Such installers are used to install free software, but the twist here is that those installers are apt to include additional ad-supported software such as BillBreak. In most cases, this application is hidden from view, and you need to opt for advanced or custom installation to reveal it. Then, you can uncheck its checkbox and install your desired program without having to deal with additional undesirable software.
While researching this infection, we found that it is capable of collecting information about you so that its developers could use it to customize the ads and make them more appealing and relevant to a given user. We have found that this application is capable of obtaining your IP address that is used to determine your geographical location to serve region-specific ads, as well as your Internet Service Provider, device information, browser type, search and browsing history, and so on. As mentioned, this information is non-personally identifiable. However, we are of the opinion that you should not provide this information because it is used to advance the selfish agenda of this program’s developers.
By selfish agenda, we mean that the developers want to make money for themselves at the expense of your computer’s security. The fact of the matter is that this application will not improve your browsing experience in any way, but can jeopardize it with its intrusive and potentially malicious advertisements that come from unknown sources. BillBreak’s developers are bound to do business with dishonest advertisers who want to promote potentially unwanted programs used to scam gullible users and extort money from them.
So this program can promote all kinds of products ranging from services to websites to software. Some of its advertisements are legitimate, but we want to focus our attention on the unreliable ones since that is the mean reason we advocate for removing this application. As mentioned, it may promote potentially unwanted programs (PUPs.) These are programs that are not necessarily malicious, but they are mostly deceitful because they claim to provide a service, such as cleaning your computer’s registry, but do not do it. Moreover, such programs are mostly paid and use scare tactics to trick users into purchasing them.
We have found that BillBreak will present its promotions in a fashion that is typical for Injekt’s adware. Its ads may come in the form of coupons, banners, pop-ups, search-related ads, and so on. These ads may be rendered on many websites, and it may be difficult to distinguish them from legitimate advertisements. Therefore, we have to uninstall this adware as quickly as you can to avoid undesirable consequences.
BillBreak is an adware-type program that comes as a browser extension, so to get rid of it you will have to go to your browser’s list of extensions, locate it and click the Remove button. Nevertheless, it may leave junk files and empty registry keys that you will have to delete manually. Therefore, we have compiled a guide for deleting this infection in its entirety, so feel free to make use of it.
