If you see ads sponsored by Screen Boost, you have most probably downloaded the app alongside another free tool chosen from the Internet.

In other cases, potentially unwanted applications are available for downloads on third-party software websites. Users should always be cautious when deciding on free applications. Frequently updating your AV tool is one way to prevent adware and PUP invasion.
