Despite ClearScreen Player would have you believe otherwise. Supposedly, the tool is reliable and helpful. Well, that’s what it claims. But is it, though? Can you believe its statements? When you take a closer look and move past the sugary layer of advertisement, it’s rather apparent that the tool is neither of those things. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. ClearScreen Player offers no assistance but does indeed offer an entire myriad of issues and headaches. The nasty PUP supplies you with a multitude of grievances, which only worsen in time. It starts by bombarding you with pop-up ads each and every time you try to surf the web. The advertisements’ continuous display is followed by frequent system crashes and a slower PC performance. Apart from test the limits of your patience with their regular intrusions, they also expose you to a severe malware risk. And, as if that’s not enough, the pesky PUP also places your personal and financial information in jeopardy. Why don’t you do yourself a favor, and get rid of the tool as soon a you become aware of its existence? In other words, when you see the first pop-up “Powered by ClearScreen Player” show up, delete it!

How did I get infected with?

ClearScreen Player is bound to seek your permission before it installs itself. That means that before the tool invades your system, it has to ask you whether you agree to let it in, and enter only after you explicitly say ‘Yes.’ If you don’t comply – no admittance. Naturally, it doesn’t just come out and openly asks you. After all, odds are, you’ll deny it! And, the infection cannot have that. So, to increase its chances of successfully slithering in, the application turns to trickery and deceit and manages to sneak in undetected. Yes, you permit the install of a program and don’t even know it at the time. But don’t be too hard on yourself. The tool dupes you quite skillfully. The PUP usually resorts to the old but gold means of infiltration, which include hitching a ride with freeware or spam email attachments, hiding behind corrupted sites or links, or pretending to be a fake update. If you wish to prevent the nasty tool from invading your system, and keep it infection-free, be more careful! Vigilance and due diligence can go a long way. Remember that next time you’re thinking about throwing caution to the wind, and giving into gullibility and haste.

Why are these ads dangerous?

ClearScreen Player states that with its help, you can play online videos straight from the desktop. No browser necessary. That sounds fantastic! And, it would have been fantastic had it been true. But it’s not. ClearScreen Player is nothing more than a deceitful and invasive PUP adware. It’s not designed to be helpful but to exploit you however it can. For one, it’s ad-supported. That means that each ad you click on generates profit from the people that published the program. In other words, the more ads you press, the bigger the revenue. And, the more money it makes off of you, the better! That’s because the application’s entire existence is linked to its success in generating pay-per-click profits and creating web traffic. That’s why ClearScreen Player floods you with so many pop-up advertisements and displays so many sponsored links. But what’s good for the program and the people behind it is bad for you. Neither the ads nor the site is reliable. If you click on either one, you risk accidentally ending up with more unwanted malware on your computer. The pop-ups, for example, are bundled with various malicious cyber threats, and each time you press one, you unknowingly agree to install said threats. Yes, a click equals your consent on the installment of malware. So, if you wish to avoid that, no pressing the program’s pop-ups! But, as was already mentioned, the adware also jeopardizes your privacy, and the malware risk is nothing compared to that. ClearScreen Player is designed to keep track of your browsing activities and catalog your every move. Then, after it gathered sufficient data from you, it proceeds to send it to the third parties behind it. Once these people have it, they can use it as they so wish. The question is, are you going to let them get it? Ar you willing to gamble with your personal and financial information for “an enjoyable online video viewing experience – without the browser!”  Here’s a hint: don’t do that. Instead, find and delete the malicious adware at once. ClearScreen Player is not worth keeping.
