Webplayer (by Kreapixel) is adware claiming to provide useful features such as offering discount coupons for websites you visit regularly, but malware experts categorize it as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) as it acts intrusive once installed.

What Exactly Is Webplayer?

Webplayer is compatible with the most commonly used browsers – Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It is advertised as an application that helps you save while you shop online as it claims to display various discounts, competitive prices and coupons for websites you are visiting.
As much as this feature sounds quite useful, the adware has its pitfalls too. Here’s how it works:

  • It installs itself on your system without your knowledge.
  • It starts displaying multiple pop-ups advertising a variety of items, fake updates and other software that could really annoy you as you cannot shut them down.
  • It turns random web page text into hyperlinks.
  • It serves as a backdoor for other unwanted programs to install on your system.
  • Clicking the pop-ups might redirect you to unwanted websites that could be infected; thus you risk infecting your PC with additional malware.
  • It monitors your browsing routine and collects personal data to share with third party advertising agencies.
  • You know you have been infected by Webplayer if the pop-ups you see say ‘Powered by Webplayer by Kreapixel,’ ‘Brought to you by Webplayer by Kreapixel’ or ‘You’ve received a premium offer from Webplayer by Kreapixel.’

    How Does Webplayer Enter Your PC?

    As you can see, Webplayer’s negatives outweigh its positives. Thus, if you are aware of the adware’s intrusive features upfront, you would never want to download it intentionally. That is why Webplayer has a way of sneaking into your system without your knowledge but with your consent.
    That is possible via bundling. Plenty of free programs you download from the Web are bundled with PUPs and malicious applications that users have an option to disallow – if they pay attention to the installation process. However, most users rush to end the installation of the desired free program and miss to uncheck the features and options which allow additional PUPs to enter their PCs.
    To protect your system and sensitive data from threats from the Web, simply pay close attention to what you are installing. Aim for custom installation rather than accepting the default or recommended settings, and uncheck the bundling option.
