How did I get infected with?

Follow Browser is a sneaky application. It dupes you into agreeing to install it, and you don’t even realize it. Not until the tool wishes you to and reveals itself. That moment of sudden awareness usually hits you when the bombardment of pop-up ads commences. Before it begins, you’re clueless to the fact that a hazardous infection is lurking on your computer, quietly wreaking havoc. More often than not, the application uses freeware as a means of infiltration as it provides possibly the easiest access point. That’s because, for reasons unknown, users seem to believe that rushing through its install and NOT reading the terms and conditions, is a grand idea. Well, it’s not. Not by a long shot. Do yourself a favor, and instead of giving into naivety and haste, be extra cautious. Thoroughly familiarize yourself with what you are asked to agree to, instead of blindly agree to it, and hope for the best. That’s a poor strategy with horrendous results. Remember, a little extra attention goes a long way.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Follow Browser markets itself as a useful application that assists you in increasing your savings. Supposedly, it provides you with news of all the best deals and bargains and also with coupons for various online sales. But, naturally, there’s a catch. To take advantage of the news it displays, you have to click on the ads that show it. But to click on the ads would be a terrible mistake! The program’s pop-ups are bundled with all kinds of malevolent tools, which are just waiting to pounce on your system. By pressing a pop-up, be it by choice or accident, you agree to install more unwanted malware. If you wish NOT to get stuck with even more hazardous tools, which will further mess up your system, avoid clicking on the ads. But as severe as the malware threat is, it still seems like a non-issue compared to the grave security risk the application places upon you. The PUP jeopardizes your personal and financial information by spying on you. As soon as it settles on your PC, it starts spying on you. It keeps track of your online activities and catalogs every move you make. When it deems it has collected a sufficient amount of data from you, it sends it to the third parties that published. That means unknown individuals will be given access to your private life. Think of a scenario where that will end well for you. Even the most vivid imagination will struggle to come up with such a scenario. Don’t buy into Follow Browser’s marketing. It’s all lies, smoke, and mirrors. Do yourself a favor, and delete it at once! You’ll save yourself a ton of unpleasantries and headaches.
