Qubiv is an application that should allow users to play premium games on qubiv.com. In this sense, it is similar to other applications, e.g. Yayzap and Gameslava that promise to enable users to play various online games free of charge. All these programs can be put into the category of advertising-supported applications (adware) because they might start displaying ads the second they enter the computer. Not all the users know that they will be allowed to play games on qubiv.com in exchange for an agreement to receive advertising, so they are very surprised when they start seeing the commercial content. All these ads shown by Qubiv have a label Qubiv, so it does not take long to understand that the application that should only allow users to play online games displays all kinds of advertisements. In other words, it is not as decent as it might seem to be at first glance. If you have this program installed on your computer, we suggest that you remove it right now. There are hundreds of games websites that do not require the installation of any software, so we can assure you that you will find where to play games after the removal of Qubiv.

If you install Qubiv, you might start seeing commercials on your screen after some time. Researchers have found out that this program will not change the settings of browsers, i.e. it will leave your homepage and default search engine alone; however, all kinds of advertisements will be displayed for you. Users say that they have started seeing different kinds of advertisements after the installation of Qubiv. Pop-ups, pop-unders, transitional ads, shopping ads, banners, and in-text advertisements might be shown for you too. It is especially true if you live in the U.S because this application targets users who live in this region primarily. These ads are quite dangerous because they might redirect users to untrustworthy websites. In fact, even accidental clicks might result in the entrance of undesirable software. Therefore, it would be best to fully delete Qubiv. Specialists working at 411-spyware.com say that users should remove this ad-supported program not only because it displays commercial advertisements, but also because it might track users’ Internet browsing activity. It might be interested in the following details:

  • IP address
  • Search pages visited
  • Links clicked on
  • Demographic information

All these details are classified as non-personally identifiable information; however, it does not mean that it is safe to provide it for the developer of Qubiv because it might send it to third parties. It is impossible to change the way this application works, so the removal of this program would be the smartest decision.

Even though Qubiv has an official website, it has been found that many users download and install this application without consent. People do not even know how this application has sneaked onto their computers, but, luckily, it did not take long for specialists to find out how this adware is distributed. According to researchers, it is very likely that this program travels in software bundles and enters computers together with other applications. This distribution method is very popular, so other untrustworthy programs might appear on your PC too if you are careless and download applications from P2P, torrent, and similar websites very often.

It should be possible to remove Qubiv through Control Panel; however, if commercial ads keep appearing on your screen after its deletion, you should check the list of add-ons on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers too. In some cases, Qubiv also installs a browser extension, so if you see it there, you need to remove it as soon as possible. You can use our manual removal instructions if you do not know how to do that. Alternatively, you can acquire a trustworthy antimalware scanner, such as SpyHunter, and then use it to remove Qubiv. We suggest using this tool if you are not an advanced user or simply it is the first time you are going to take care of the undesirable software yourself.
