BoostWeb App is a recently released adware application designed to show commercial advertisements on almost every webpage you visit. Because the promoted content is unreliable in nature, we recommend that you remove this infection from your computer in order to avoid nasty surprises in the form of hazardous malware. Indeed, this application is likely to advertise fake content that could result in your computer getting infected with all kinds of malware programs. In addition to that, the program has the ability to collect information about the user. Please continue reading this article if you want to learn more about this infection and methods used to remove it.
BoostWeb App has been designed to display pop-ups that are very annoying and intrusive. And the ads need to be annoying for the developers to get paid, because the app is apt to use the pay-per-click system. It means that a user must click the ad so that the developers could generate revenue. The developers employ information gathering techniques to collect data such as browsing and search history of the users. The application sends the information back to the developers for market analysis. Based on the results, they can tweak their marketing strategies to increase the chance of a click. That is why some ads are misleading and fake. You might be shown an ad that you might be genuinely interested in, but you get redirected to an infected website that contains malware downloads, so we suggest that you remove BoostWeb App.
Moreover, your computer might end up getting infected with malicious applications, such as Trojans, spyware, and so on. Some malware can lock for computer entirely and prevent you from using it until you pay a ransom. Some malicious apps may pose as legitimate, but in reality will not do anything useful, but nonetheless insist that you need to pay to use some of its non-existent features. Some malware might steal personal information, record key strokes to reveal passwords, and so on and so forth.
That is why we recommend that you delete BoostWeb App from your computer as soon as possible. You can remove the app manually using the guide provided below, or you can get a anti-malware scanner, such as SpyHunter to remove the application without leaving malicious junk files. In any case, you must get rid of this infection for the sake of your personal security.
