What is Application Nation?
Application Nation is a program that promises it will enhance the user’s browsing experience. It promises that it will save users time and money by presenting them with various offers. The program can work on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Although it may seem useful, we do not recommend having the program on your computer. The application falls under the category of adware. In other words, they will flood your browser with ads. This cannot only prove to be quite annoying, but potentially dangerous. This is why we recommend getting rid of it right away.
What Does Application Nation Do?
As soon as it has been installed, Application Nation will be attached to your browser. Immediately after that it will start presenting ads whenever you browse the web. The program can present pop-up, banner, in-text, transitional, as well as full page advertisements. Naturally, Application Nation will collect information on your browsing, which will allow it to present you with relevant ads. This data can also be shared with unknown third parties, however.
Is Application Nation Dangerous?
Application Nation has been developed by SuperWeb LLC. This company is known for its unreliable programs. What is more, Application Nation is just another clone of the same adware developed by SuperWeb LLC. The company simply rebrands its software to make it seem as though it is a different program. Still, Application Nation itself is not malicious. It can, however, be a vulnerability for your system’s security. Some of the advertisements that are presented by the program can be misleading. They may actually take you to harmful websites. There you can become a victim of a phishing scheme or some infection may be transferred onto your computer. This is why clicking on the ads should be avoided.
Where Did Application Nation Come from?
Application Nation has an official website, but as it is the case with other SuperWeb LLC programs, it cannot be downloaded from there. However, it does have alternative methods of distribution. Namely, it uses bundling. If you are unfamiliar with this tactic, it means that Application Nation will be attached to other free programs. Now, if you download freeware from third-party websites, it is very likely that it will come with additional programs. You have to be vigilant during the whole installation process if you want to decline these. Otherwise, they will enter your computer without you noticing.
