DigitalChallenge is a typical adware application that is based on the JustPlugIt engine. This means that each time the program enters someone’s computer it generates its name in a different way by changing the capital letters. You need this information because you will have to locate the program on your system and delete it. And the elimination of DigitalChallenge is a mission you need to complete if you care about your online security. By keeping this program, you may make your system vulnerable to various kinds of online threats. Besides, this program possibly came along with some unwanted intruders.

We have found no official distributor of DigitalChallenge. However, we have figured out that this adware program is a part of the MultiPlug family. Recently, we have focused on some other members of the family, including AutoTinker, MetroCleaner, and ExtraLargeApp. All these applications are mostly distributed via the Installrex installers. Those installers use a popular bundling method for software distribution. It works when people click on bogus download button while visiting some torrent websites. By doing this, they allow a package of unwanted and possibly malicious programs to enter their computers. If you have DigitalChallenge on your system, then, most likely, you have also received the application in a similar way. You need to increase the level of your security and download programs only from their official sources.

You may be curious about what threats DigitalChallenge may bring. Let us examine how this adware application acts. It irritates you with commercial advertisements each and every time you open your Internet browser. This fact alone speaks for the elimination of the program. However, the most dangerous part is when you decide to click on an ad generated by this program (you can do it even accidentally). Then you are always redirected to a webpage controlled by some third party. Sometimes your click is needed only to increase traffic to those websites. But you can face harsher consequences of not removing DigitalChallenge on the spot. Ads provided by this application can redirect you to webpages created to launch a phishing attack on you. Creators of those sites may try to obtain your financial or personal information and even try to steal your identity. For example, you may encounter a fake message saying that you have recently won an online lottery and all you have to do is to enter your credentials, and the prize will be yours. Tricksters can use various methods to gain access to your personal data, and DigitalChallenge may act as an accidental helper to them.

Digital Challenge could be removed either manually or automatically by using a licensed antivirus program. If you choose the first way, then you will have to carefully follow our instructions. In case you made a mistake and were not able to complete the elimination process, please leave a comment in the section below; we will get back to you as soon as possible.
