If you ended up stuck with this pesky parasite on your once virus-free PC, you’re reading the right article. We are perfectly aware of the entire mess that Addon Jet is able to bring upon you so we’ve tried to cover some of the most commonly asked questions concerning this program. First things first – what is Addon Jet? This is a potentially unwanted adware parasite and it’s neither the most dangerous virus out there nor the most difficult one to remove. Having said that, Addon Jet is just nasty enough to fill in your PC with malware and to effectively ruin your browser experience. Due to the parasite’s presence on your machine, you will be seeing an impressively rich variety of corrupted pop-ups. If the phrase “corrupted pop-ups” doesn’t make you nervous enough to delete this program, it certainly should. This is a free ad-supported parasite and its developers get paid to generate commercials. All kinds of commercials. It’s utterly irrelevant to the hackers where you may land once you carelessly click some of those ads open and, as you can imagine, your online safety is their last concern. The parasite’s trickery are just getting started and unless you want to see all of its malicious potential unleashed, you will not hesitate to delete the virus. After all, it’s a virus. Why would you leave it unattended on your machine?

How did I get infected with?

How did the parasite enter your machine? We assume that you’re quite careful when it comes to your own computer and your own safety. Unfortunately, the parasite’s presence proves that you aren’t careful enough. Even though this infection travels the Web mainly through stealthy and secretive techniques, it still needs your permission at some point. So if you noticed that it got installed on your PC, that means you actually agreed to it. The most plausible scenario is that you downloaded freeware off of the Internet and the parasite was bundled with the legitimate software you originally wanted. What you didn’t want, however, was a nasty infection. The Addon Jet program takes advantage of your negligence in the installation process and the only way to make sure there is no “bonus” infection alongside the safe software is to take your time when installing programs, especially if they come bundled. Always select the advanced/custom option and stay away from the basic one because the basic one doesn’t provide control. And you have to keep in mind that it’s either you who remains in control of the installation process, or it’s the hackers. It better be you. Other thing you should do is trust legitimate websites only and even though their software may not come for free, at least it will be virus-free for sure. Also, take some extra time and check the Terms and Conditions of the programs you install unless you’re willing to risk your own safety as well as your own privacy. There are many dangerous things online; it’s up to you whether you will avoid them successfully or you will fall victim to some unexpected trick.

Why are these ads dangerous?

The Addon Jet parasite certainly isn’t the most dangerous program on the Web. It isn’t the safest one either. One very important piece of information concerning this parasite is that the more time this thing spends on your machine, the more trouble it will bring upon you later on. First of all, right after its successful infiltration behind your back, the virus infects your browsers. And by “your browsers” we mean all of them – its compatibility with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer creates some indescribable chaos all over your PC. Whatever browser you decide to use, the ads will be there. Whatever web page you try to visit, the ads will be there. What is a lot worse than the overall annoyance and frustration is the tiny detail that none of those commercials is safe. Behind all links displayed by the parasite could be hiding a compromised website full of infections or a nasty cyber scam trying to steal your money. Or both. As if that wasn’t worrying enough, the parasite also constantly tries to force additional software on you and you should know that all program updates or toolbars or whatever the virus has in store is potentially malicious and very harmful. As mentioned above, hackers don’t care for your cyber safety so you really have no reason whatsoever to keep Addon Jet on board. The parasite and its devious browser extension have to go ASAP as they also manage to steal some of your personal data. Even though financial scams and identity theft may not sound like a real danger right now, they are the absolute worst case scenario that the parasite could cause. Do you want to personally experience some of them? And do you feel confident and safe knowing that your browsing history, passwords, IP address and even some personally-identifiable data are currently in the greedy hands of cyber criminals? Long story short, Addon Jet is a very undesirable sight on any computer so our advice is to get rid of it without the slightest moment of hesitance. You will find our detailed removal instructions down below.
