You will come across advertisements labeled “Ads by BoomCheap” or “Brought by BoomCheap” if the BoomCheap application has been installed on your computer. The ads will present you with offers for various products at cheaper prices. They are also supposed to contain redirections to the websites where these offers can be found. Unfortunately, these ads are most likely to be fake since BoomCheap is an unreliable ad-supported program. It would be best if you do not click on advertisements displayed by BoomCheap and if you remove the application from your system.

How did I get infected with BoomCheap?

Most computer users do not even realize when exactly BoomCheap enters their system because that is done silently. It happens when you download free applications from unknown third-party websites. Such apps could be free media players, file converters, system optimizers, and so on. They get installed along with some additional programs, so if you do not select Custom/Advanced installation option, you will not be informed about it. Remember to be attentive during the setup process so that you can disable the installation of any unwanted applications.

Why are BoomCheap ads dangerous?

All the ads that BoomCheap will bring to you will affect your online experience in a bad way as they will interrupt you while surfing the web. They are supposed to appear mainly on online shopping websites, however, you will see them any web page you visit. Do not let yourself be tempted by the displayed offers because they could be misleading and you might end up on a third-party website spreading various infections. The reason for this is that these websites are owned by BoomCheap’s third-party sponsors, of whom there is no information provided. Since BoomCheap is not only useless but also potentially dangerous, there is no point in keeping it on your system.
