Unzippro is a new questionable application for the Mac OS that has raised some concerns. This software is supposed to be a file extraction program, but our research shows that it is more like an adware program. In fact, we have categorized it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it does not mean direct danger to your system. However, it is possible that indirectly it can expose you to unreliable third-party web content. If you have noticed an increased number of third-party ads while you are browsing the web, it is possible that you have this PUP on board. Please note that such ads can cause more serious damage since you could drop dangerous infections onto your system or even get scammed by cyber criminals if you land on malicious websites. All in all, we believe that it is best for you to remove Unzippro from your computer if you would like to keep your Mac clean.
You can find the official page at downloadunzippro.com. This is a very simple text-based website that does not strike you as a professional developers' site. When you click the Get Started button, you get redirected to a download page with huge green Free Download/Install Now buttons. Of course, this could be tempting for inexperienced users who are looking for a free file extractor. We also understand that just because a website is very basic, it may not be a reason for you to want to delete Unzippro if you already have it.
The real issue here is that this PUP can also be installed in a bundled version. This usually means that you actually target a different program to download; however, you download a whole package that may also contain this PUP among others. Unfortunately, such a bundle may also carry all kinds of malware infections, including browser hijackers and adware programs. This is why you should keep away from unfamiliar file-sharing sites like torrent and freeware websites. These are filled with unsafe contents and they also tend to promote malicious bundles. But you can also infect your system with a bundle when you click on compromised links and unsafe third-party ads on suspicious websites usually related to file-sharing, dating, online betting, and gaming. However, if your computer was infected previously, you can also be exposed to unsafe content even on reputable websites. Infections like adware can hijack legitimate ads and reroute you to malicious websites. Therefore, the best you can do now after you delete Unzippro is scan your Mac with a powerful online malware scanner to find all possible threats on your system.
This PUP offers you a free way to extract archived files. Although this function may work just fine, you should know that this program has also been found displaying questionable third-party advertisements on your screen. These ads can be very annoying to say the least. Unfortunately, they can also present to you indirect danger if you were to engage with them. Clicking on an unreliable advertisement could take you to malicious or fake websites run by cyber crooks and you could easily be scammed out of your money in no time. But, you can also drop more serious threats onto your Mac behind your back. Please remember that it is always risky to click on such ads if your Mac is infected or you do not have a proper security tool installed. We believe that you can find reliable file extractors for free, ones that will not put your virtual security at risk. This is why we recommend that you remove Unzippro right away.
Hopefully, it is clear by now why it is best to eliminate this annoying PUP with its potentially harmful third-party ads. Please follow our instructions below if you want to do this yourself. But do not get carried away too much because your hunt should not be over just yet. In fact, until you clean all your system of all the possible threat sources, it is not safe for you to go online at all. If you cannot do this manually, we advise you to install a trustworthy up-to-date malware removal application as soon as possible to protect your Mac from future threats as well.
