VNPApps, also known as Ads by VNPApps, is considered an ad-supported browser extension and a PUP. It is most likely compatible with widely preferred browsers such as Chrome, Explorer, Mozilla. Once installed, the application may start producing intrusive advertisements saying something like “Brought by VNPApps”.

Even though ad-supported add-ons and extensions are not believed to be a threat to the system, their prolonged residence on it makes it more vulnerable. Furthermore, if the user interacts with such ads, he may be redirected to a suspicious page or take part in a social engineering scheme. To avoid further system damage or malfunction, VNPApps should be uninstalled.

Why Do I Have VNPApps on My Browser?

The most common distribution method for adware is the bundling technique.One of the most common ways adware is being distributed is bundled downloads. Bundling means that VNPApps was included in the download packages of other freeware products under the ‘advanced/custom’ option. By choosing this option on the software installer, you can avoid unwanted downloads.pop-ups-adware-adcloud

However, in other cases, they developers of the PUP may have decided to spread it via unattended or silent installation platforms. A silent installation means that the user will not be informed about the additional software he is downloading. In other words, silent installations happen without any indication. An unattended installer means that user interaction is not needed at all. By describing these methods, it becomes evident why third party developers may choose to apply them.

That is why, to stay away from adware and riskware, downloading from shareware and freeware pages is a bad idea. The least you can do is research the software you intend to download prior to installing it.

Are VNPApps Ads Dangerous?

They are not considered malicious, but they may create a gateway to further PC-related issues. Often such ads may link the user to threatening pages that employ some kind of social engineering scheme to obtain user credentials. Never give away personal information on unclear websites. In many cases, such websites are created for phishing attacks and they will try to lure the user into believing he has won a prize or has been selected for an event. A well-trained eye will always make a difference a scamming website from a legitimate one, but many users lack the sufficient experience.

Furthermore, adware often deploys tracking technologies such as persistent cookies, unique identifiers, beacons, etc.

How Can I Remove VNPApps

Considering the potentially unwanted character of the application, its removal is highly recommended. To clean the system, you may want to use professional assistance. As we already mentioned, more adware programs may have sneaked into your PC alongside VNPApps, thanks to the bundling method.
