AdfreeApp is believed to be a Potentially Unwanted Program or PUP and also may be detected by some anti-malware programs as adware. Similar programs usually may be installed on your computer if they come in combination with third party software. It is reported that this software might display ads on the top of search results when search engines are being used.
AdFreeApp – What Does It Do?
Adfreeapp is not an application that you can find deliberately. We attempted to visit the website of the app (www.adfreeapp.info), however the domain was closed. Despite that, there are still reports on the Web that this software might come bundled with third-party installers.
There have been reports that claim this application may display around 3 or 4 advertisements in the form of search results. And when some users may have attempted to look for a way to uninstall the program, they could not find it either in the browser extensions or the ‘Add&Remove Programs’ tool.
Adware programs are not directly dangerous to the user’s PC they are installed on. However, there is a possibility that they might redirect the user to suspicious sites and, therefore, expose him to certain threats.
One of the risks that are connected with adware and PUPs and sometimes reported is the automatic redirect. This means that while you browse the Web, suddenly a new tab might open along with a pop-up window, that may or may not contain texts similar to ‘Your browser needs an upgrade’ or others. This pop up usually may have an ‘Ok’ button, and if you click on it, there is a possibility that it may automatically start downloading executable files on your computer.
Another threat may be the ads that the user might click on. Sometimes, some of those ads may redirect to various fraudulent websites such as fake retailer stores, prompting for credit card information on registration, fraudulent tech support websites with phone numbers that may charge potential victims using expensive phone call rates.
