Whenever the shortened URL is opened in a web browser, it generates revenue for its operators. It appears that Ckk.ai is part of Shrinkearn.com which is as stated on its website:

ShrinkEarn is a completely free tool where you can create short links, which apart from being free, you get paid!

So whenever you see a web page generated by Ckk.ai in your preferred web browser, it means that you see some kind of sponsored content. Beware as the tool ShrinkEarn which generates Ckk.ai ads may be used by anyone including cyber crooks.

This means that Ckk.ai ads may present misleading information and steps that attempt to trick you into providing sensitive credentials (see also: phishing websites) or redirect you to hacked websites that are designed to download malicious software directly on the operating system.

As of the program that is likely to be triggering redirects to Ckk.ai ads as well as to other different ad formats, it can be classified as a potentially undesired program. To be more precise we should note that this unwanted program is adware. Adware is an ad-supported software that generates online advertisements in its interface or in installed browsers to earn money for its creators from user clicks.

Adware programs tend to infiltrate computer systems with the help of shady spread techniques like software bundling, malvertising, website corruption, and fake software update notifications. Software bundles are widely used for the spread of PUPs. So the installation of a desired app with compromised installer may be the reason for all those annoying ads that flood the browser.

It is a good security practice to select the Advanced/Custom setup step when it is available in the installer of a freshly downloaded app. Once you are there you may be able to notice that some undesired apps are set to install by default, hence, you can unmark them and prevent them from affecting your system.

For the sake of the security of your privacy and system as well, you should prevent these ads from accessing your browser. You can do this by following our simple removal guide.
