PennyBee Ads is a series of commercial advertisements that appear on your browser whenever you access adware-supported websites. Unlike a number of other adware applications, PennyBee adware does not add any extensions to your browser. This program only has a process running in Windows Task manager. However, it does not mean that this adware application is any less dangerous. You have to remove PennyBee Ads from your computer immediately because in the long run this program could inadvertently expose you to potential computer security threats.
It is very likely that you did not notice when or how PennyBee Ads entered your computer. We have located the program’s official homepage at pennybee.com, but the direct download link does not function. Clicking on one Download button downloads a .png file of the website’s header, and clicking the second Download button below simply leads you to a blank page which says “file not found.” It means that if you have PennyBee Ads on your system, the application has arrived bundled with additional freeware apps. It also means that you have initiated the automated download yourself after having accessed a potentially corrupted website or having clicked an unreliable link.
According to the information provided at pennybee.com, PennyBee is “a dynamic online tool that automatically offers you relevant deals according to your online searches in real time.” In other words, PennyBee Ads should function as a browser helper or a coupon application. It adds the program to the list of other potentially unwanted programs that claim they can help you save money on your purchases online, but they can hardly do any good. In fact, such adware applications might cause more trouble especially if they get exploited by malevolent third parties.
PennyBee Ads show relevant deals when you browse the Internet because it collects information on your web browsing and then makes use of it to create custom content. However, the program does not review the third party content that gets embedded into its offers. Thus, any malevolent party can promote their content via PennyBee Ads as long as they know how to do that, and cybercriminals usually do know how to make use of such opportunities.
If you want to protect your system from serious security issues, you will have to remove PennyBee Ads along with any other potentially unwanted apps. In case you have no idea what other unwanted applications are present on your system, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner.
