Ads by CoolPic is not as cool as the name implies; on the contrary, it is an awful adware application. By definition, adware is a type of malware that offers no added value to your browsing experience whatsoever. Therefore, we suggest that you remove this unreliable application from your computer, because, if you fail to do so, it will continue to nag you with intrusive ads that are provided by various shady third parties. That being said, we must delve deeper into the reasons why you should delete Ads by CoolPic.
First and foremost, Ads by CoolPic is deceitful in nature, because it passes as an application that enables users to edit pictures and images within their web browsers. However, it does no such thing but is very good at displaying various types of advertisements that come in the shape of coupons, pop-ups, and so on. It must be mentioned that the adware has been carefully crafted to display specific ads depending on the website that you are viewing at the time.
But how does Ads by CoolPic manage to pull that off? The answer is simple: The application has a built-in function to track and collect the user’s browsing history, search queries, and IP address, as well as other information. After enough data has been collected, it is then sent back to its developers for processing. In addition, the developers can share that information with the third parties that they promote. Then, either the developers or the third parties process that information and make adjustments to their advertising campaigns. The developers are motivated to do so simply because they get paid for each click by the user.
The developers are mostly to blame for the dangers that Ads by CoolPic poses because they fail to check if the content they promote is legitimate. This may lead to serious security issues, because, if the user is to click a fake ad, he might get infected with dangerous malware that will be difficult or even impossible to remove manually. Therefore, we encourage users to delete the adware program as soon as possible.
Nevertheless, we think that it is important for you to know how you may have gotten Ads by CoolPic on your computer. Like most adware, Ads by CoolPic utilizes software bundles to enter your computer. There are many websites that distribute such bundles, and we encourage you to be more skeptical about downloading free software from websites such as download.com, softonic.com, and soft32.com. However, if you insist on downloading an application from the aforementioned websites, we suggest you keep an eye out for malware such as Ads by CoolPic and decline the offer to install it.
All in all, Ads by CoolPic has no reason to continue harassing you with deals “you don’t want to miss.” Once again, we recommend that you delete it in order to keep your system malware free, because failure to do so will most likely cause more adware to pile up on your hard drive or, even worse, you may get infected with ransomware, Trojans, rogue antispyware, and so on. Please follow our instructions that we have provided to safely remove Ads by CoolPic.
