Pass to Post is a mysterious application that does not seem to have any legitimate functions at all. We have found that this program simply displays third-party advertisements and offers that may be potentially unreliable, not to mention that they are rather annoying as well. Because of its behavior we have labeled this useless software as an adware program. Although a lot of users do not see the risks of keeping such an application on their computers, we would like to raise your awareness in this matter. In reality, these third-party advertisements may cause all kinds of system security issues for you and also breach your privacy by spying on you. Keeping this adware on your PC could totally ruin your browsing experience. But we believe that this is just the tip of the iceberg and the least of your worries, not to mention the possibility that this adware has come on board along with other malware infections. All in all, you should remove Pass to Post if you want to protect your system from further malware attacks.
We have found a promotional website that seems to be the official page for this application. You can find it at getpasstopost.com, but it is totally useless just like this adware. In fact, on this page you can only find one single line about this software that says: “The best of the web delivered to you with Pass to Post.” This is rather vague, as a matter of fact, and, of course, there is no way to download this tool either. This is rather suspicious when you cannot actually download an application from its own webpage and makes you wonder. It is definitely a big minus when it comes to reliability. This page is very simple and it also tells tales about this “wonderful” application.
You may wonder how it can end up on your computer then. As reports and our research show, this adware mainly travels the web in malicious bundles that pack several malware installers. It is possible that you want to download free stuff from the Internet, such as books, music or video files, movies, and software, and you search the web to find a place to get them from. However, if you are not experienced enough, you may click on corrupt links that take you to malicious or fake websites. Most of the times, these are suspicious file-sharing websites that host plenty of deceitful third-party advertisements. These ads can easily fool you if you are not familiar with the website or the tricks schemers may use to get your attention and make you click on these ads. But when you click, your computer may be doomed. If you do not want more malware infections, you should keep away from such pages and refrain from clicking on third-party ads altogether. Since there is a good chance that a bunch of malware infections have entered your system in one go, we advise you to delete Pass to Post right now, and then, check your computer for other possible threats. You can use, for example, a free online malware scanner for this, but make sure that it is a reliable one since the web is full of fake scanners and security tools.
We have discovered that this application is a simple clone of a long line of adware programs, including Bronze Aid, Discovery App, High Stairs, Wander Burst, and many more. This program also has no real function apart from making easy money for its creators through generating web traffic to affiliated websites. But you need to keep in mind that anybody can become a third party including cyber criminals. Since this adware may spy on you and gather important information with regard to your online activities, you may be targeted with customized advertisements. These ads may look like they talk to you directly, they seem all relevant to you, and this may well be a trap set by criminals. Clicking on such ads could take you to malicious websites. If you visit websites that are operated by cyber criminals, the minimum price you may pay is downloading more malware threats onto your computer. However, it is also possible that you will be tricked. For example, you may be redirected to a fake online shop where you will be offered your desired product for an insanely cheap price, but when you give your personal and banking details, you actually give these away to crooks. Can you imagine what may happen if this information gets in the wrong hands? We hope that you see how risky it may be to keep this adware on your computer. There is no other choice for you but to remove Pass to Post if you do not want to experience any of the aforementioned situations.
At least at the end we can give you some positive thoughts and solutions. As a matter of fact, this adware has a working uninstaller that should clear this mess up without leaving any leftovers on your system. Locate this uninstaller through Control Panel and run it. That is all there is to it. If you need help with this, please follow our instructions below. If you do not want to manually detect and eliminate malware infections in the future, we suggest that you use professional anti-malware software. If you keep your security tool updated, you can feel perfectly safe while using your computer and going online.
