sexytubemodeSexy Tube Mode is an ad-supported application developed by Big Water Applications LLC, a company that is a known PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs) developer. The app claims to improve the mood when watching online videos, by adding various effects to the video, such as dimming the ‘lights’ when watching and enhancing the ability to watch online videos. In reality, however, the app may administer various pop-up advertisements with an indicating text, such as ‘Ads By Sexy Tube Mode’. Also, the application applies tracking technologies that collect different user information, and its developers claim that they may share it with third-parties and affiliates.

How Did Ads by Sexy Tube Mode Affect Me?

There are several means by which you could have installed this PUP. You may have been redirected to its download web page. But there is also a chance that you downloaded it from a targeted Facebook ad or by believing that the app is free of ads. The most successful method of distribution of PUPs is by combining them with installers of other free programs as ‘extras’, otherwise known as bundling. Be careful when you install programs from websites that provide free programs, because some of those websites bundle apps for profit. And most of them who do this either do not do their research or do not mind what apps they bundle, as long as they get paid.

What Do Ads by Sexy Tube Mode Do?

Once installed on your computer, this ad-supported program may begin to administer advertisements on a regular basis. Some of those ads are most likely in the form of annoying pop-ups that take up the screen space, pop-ups that appear in a strategic place where fast clickers may click them. And there are also other forms of advertising such as ad-supported search results and modified site content (highlighted words with hotlinks to third-party sites).

In their privacy policy, Big Water Applications Admit that they employ information tracking technologies such as cookies, beacons, LSOs and others in order to track the user’s online activity and target him or her with advertisements based on that. Oh, and by the way, they mentioned that they may share your immediately collected non-personal and personal information that makes this app a ‘should remove’ one, according to security experts.


More so, Ads by Sexy Tube could collaborate with many third parties which have different policies regarding user information. Some may even be sites that could infect the computer with malware or scam users out of their money. There have been millions lost in online scams and extortions for the last year. Users do nothing serious to prevent it, mostly because some of them are even unaware or do not believe that infections such as ransomware can occur to them. And such infections caused around 18 million dollars in damages for the last year.

Programs such as Ads by Sexy Tube Mode are created with one and only purpose, and that is to make money to their developers. As to whether this is done by sharing user data with third-parties or employing pay-per-click schemes and affiliate tactics, the developers do not mind at all. This is why experts recommend always to be informed on the latest concerning both non-malware and malware.
