If you are fighting with a constant flow of pop-up advertisements, it is possible that your operating system has been infected with DigiFreeApp. This application is an advertising-supported free program whose only goal is to generate revenue for its creators. As a matter of fact, it has no benefit for you at all; instead, this adware may cause system security issues if you keep it on your computer. Do not think that you can stop this program from displaying ads simply by closing them. The only way to avoid the potential harm these ads may hold for you and your computer is to delete DigiFreeApp as soon as possible. It is also likely that this adware is not the only infection on-board. Therefore, you should be careful for how long you hesitate to act. Please continue reading our report to understand more about this malware infection.
We have found that DigiFreeApp belongs to the so-called Multiplug family of useless adware applications that are all built on the JustPlugIt cross-browser platform. Practically, only the names of these programs are different, they are more or less the same. There is not one day that goes by without a new adware app emerging from this family, which already holds hundreds of potentially harmful ad-supported programs, including ExportApplicati, DigitalChallenge and RotaryMasteRs. These applications have one single function, and that is to make their creators rich. How is it possible if these are all free programs? The people behind the development of such adware apps get paid by the pay-per-click system. That means that the more times users click on the ads displayed by DigiFreeApp, for example, the more money these people get paid. Have you ever looked at third-party ads as a way to support potential criminals? Because that is actually what happens with each click on those ads.
But that is only one aspect. The other, even more serious problem is the reliability of these advertisements; or, rather, the lack thereof. In fact, you can never be certain that you will be taken to a legitimate website once you click on an ad that you can feel a “connection” with. Keep in mind that this adware may collect information about you, including your IP address, websites you visit, any much more. It is possible that third parties, potentially including cyber criminals, start to send targeted ads to your computer screen. Clicking on a corrupted ad may redirect you to a malicious website. Only removing DigiFreeApp can solve your problems; otherwise, you will remain exposed to these shady advertisements, which is like sitting on a ticking time bomb.
Once you make up your mind and decide to get rid of DigiFreeApp, there are two “doors” in front of you. One leads to manual, the other, to automated removal. If you want to get your hands “dirty”, you can use our guide below this article. The steps we share with you here should not be problematic to accomplish even if you are not an experienced user. However, if you prefer the safety and efficiency of automated action, we recommend that you install a reliable antimalware program that can sort out all your security-related problems and protect your PC.
