Fresh Outlook is most likely a potentially unwanted program. PUPs are usually installed alongside other freeware programs downloaded from legitimate pages. The application may not be malicious but it may cause certain issues on a system. If the PUP is ad-supported, the display of unwanted ad-related content is probable to happen. The pop-up ads brought by Fresh Outlook that may start appearing on the browser may get in the way of the user’s browsing habits.
Fresh Outlook Distribution Method
Potentially unwanted applications such as Fresh Outlook usually enter the system via bundling of software. Bundled downloads are applied by both developers and third party digital advertisers for purely financial purposes. Online platforms may be monetized through bundling. That is why clicking on random ads that appear while browsing is not considered a good idea. The user may be redirected to suspicious or predefined websites.
Fresh Outlook Potential Risks
Once installed, PUPs and ad-supported software are known to:
- Apply tracking/ persistent cookies to the browser. This is usually mentioned in the application’s EULA or Download agreement.
- Collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.
- Share collected data with interested sites, likely for online marketing reasons.
- Slow down the browser and interrupting the user’s browsing routine.
- Cause unsafe browser redirects to pages that may conduct phishing attacks or drive-by downloads.

Adware and PUPs can be removed both manually and automatically. However, manual removal is considered appropriate mostly for advanced PC users since it acquires certain skills.
