Screenshared Ads was classified as a potentially unwanted program due to the way its developers have decided to distribute it as well as its ability to show annoying commercial advertisements. Removing this application is recommended because its remote connection function is somewhat of a gimmick that is used to attract unwary users. The truth is that this application is dedicated to generating advertising revenue because the creators do not earn anything by letting you use this program for free.
Before we go any further, we want to elaborate on how this program is currently being distributed. We have found a dedicated distribution website at Desktopscreenshared.com. However, this website is currently down, so you cannot get this program from that website. Nevertheless, this does not mean that Screenshared Ads is going to die off. We have received information claiming that this program is being bundled with third-party software bundles that can hide the presence of this program. So you might install this application accidentally by installing freeware from freeware hosting websites.
Officially, Screenshared Ads is a RDT (Remote Desktop Tool) that enables users to connect and control a computer remotely from another computer. This technology has been around for a long time now and is invaluable in many situations such as providing tech support. However, Screenshared Ads offers nothing useful because its RDT feature is more of a gimmick than a real service. Indeed, its secretive developers have decided to promote it as such a tool to trick users into installing it. Never mind that it does not actually work.
Having this application on your PC can result in it draining your computer’s resources and slowing down its performance. It will run in the background constantly, and in some cases, it might prevent your PC from shutting down or restarting. However, the primary reason we have classified this application as potentially unwanted is the fact that it can show commercial advertisements inside your browser. This program’s developers have set up a web monetization campaign and implemented a pay-per-click system. According to this program’s legal documents “The Application may display, include or make available third-party content (including data, information, applications and other products services) or provide links to third-party websites or services ("Third-Party Services").” Its ads can come in the form of coupons that offer deals, discounts, and special offers. However, you may find the ads annoying and intrusive. Furthermore, there is no telling whether the ads are actually safe to interact with as some of them might prove to be malicious. So you should look out for coupons labeled "ScreenShared ads" or "Ads by ScreenShared."
In conclusion, Screenshared Ads is one undesirable application that you ought to delete because its real purpose is to show promotional links and make money for its developers. It might end up on your computer as a result of installing a software bundle that hid this application from sight. If you got it unintentionally and want to remove it, then we suggest that you make use of the instructions provided below this article.
