What is Unfriend Watch?
Unfriend Watch is a program that supposedly helps you keep track of the Facebook friends that have unfriended you, those you have unfriended, and those that have deactivated their accounts. This can seem quite useful to some users. You should know that Unfriend Watch has been classified as an adware program. This means that after it has been installed, it will start showing ads when you browse the web. This will not be discreet at all. They will pretty much get in your face and interfere with your browsing. Not to mention that adware programs are considered to be unwanted applications as they are potential security vulnerabilities. We recommend getting rid of this program at once.
Where Did Unfriend Watch Come from?
Unfriend Watch has an official website where you can download it from. However, like most adware programs, it can also use bundling to get installed on computers. This means that it will be featured in installers of free applications. It will also be set up for installation by default. This means that if users do not want it, they have to explicitly decline it. And if they are inattentive, and just click the Next button, they will install it by accident. This is why you must be very careful when installing freeware if you do not want any additional programs to be installed alongside.
What Does Unfriend Watch Do?
This program will be attached to your browser immediately after it has been installed. It can work on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. As it is stated in its Terms of Service, the program will then start displaying “pop up ads, pop under ads, or other types of ads.” What is more, the software will also collect data on your browsing, so that it can show you relevant ads.
How is Unfriend Watch Dangerous?
The ads will all lead to third-party websites. Also, the developers of Unfriend Watch deny any liability associated with these ads. This means that if you are somehow transferred to a harmful website by one of the ads shown by Unfriend Watch, they are not responsible for any adverse consequences for you and your PC. And it is possible for you to be shown misleading ads that lead to malicious websites. This is because the third-party websites that are promoted through the adverts do not go through any screening process. Web pages controlled by cyber criminals may attempt to infect your computer with malware. This is why it is best not to have Unfriend Watch on your computer.
How to Remove Unfriend Watch?
You can remove Unfriend Watch yourself. All you need to do is go to Control Panel and open the list of programs. Then find Unfriend Watch and remove it. However, you should consider that there is a great chance that more unwanted programs have managed to enter it. There may even be malware on it. This is why security specialists recommend having a reliable antimalware tool on your PC operating at all times. It will get rid of all intruders and prevent any from infiltrating your system in the future.
