MyAppsCloud is promoted as a desktop application that should notify you when updates for your other programs are available. Certainly, this makes MyAppsCloud seem as though it is a very useful program. However, research has found that the program is not as helpful as its developers claim it is.
This is not more than another adware program. It will not provide the services it promises. Instead, it will start producing numerous advertisements while you are browsing the web. Such programs are considered to be unwanted ones as they can lead to some risks for the system’s security. We strongly recommend getting rid of MyAppsCloud as soon as possible.

Then, the browser extension will start generating advertisements whenever you browse the web. The ads will appear constantly and in a variety of formats: pop-up, banner, in-text, etc. The browser extension will also be able to collect information on your browsing. This way, it will be able to present targeted advertisements to each user. In most cases, the ads will present different deals, discounts, coupons, and promotions. Still, it is not recommended that you click on any of them.
