New App, also known as New App Ads and Ads by New App, is an adware application developed by SuperWebLLC. New App is compatible with popular browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Explorer, and Safari. Once running in the background, the ad-supported application will generate numerous pop-ups and banners, and may even turn random page texts into hyperlinks. The end goal of New App is increasing the traffic to certain pages and generating revenue for third-party organizations.
Why Do I see Ads by New App?
The most probable reason for having adware running in the system is bundled downloading. This means that the user downloaded a free program from the Internet that was packed with the ad-supported app. Developers often employ bundling in order to cover financial losses. To avoid such downloads from happening, users are advised to opt out of automatic installation and go for the advanced option. Doing so will inform them of any additional software, and they would have the chance to deselect it.
Is New App Threatening to My Computer?
There are certain risks of having adware running on the computer. On one hand, the user’s privacy may be compromised by the addition of tracking cookies to the browser. Tracking cookies are used to collect personally identifiable information such as browsing history, search queries, website credentials, and even IP addresses.
Furthermore, the longer the system is exposed to adware, the more vulnerable it becomes. Clicking any of the suggested ad-sponsored content may redirect the user to a malicious web page.
