Trolatunt is a potentially unwanted application classified as adware. It means that this browser add-on can be used by third parties to generate financial profit by displaying pop-up ads and then redirecting users to affiliated websites to increase their traffic or make users participate in various online marketing surveys. This application is not a malicious computer infection, because users install it onto their computers willingly, even if they do not understand it. Thus, you can remove Trolatunt manually through Control Panel.
According to the information provided at the official home page for Trolatunt, the creators of this application are really “passionate” about improving the web. At trolatunt.co/Support it states that:
While you surf the web, Trolatunt’s tools Compare, Deals, Inline, Related, Review and Search are working hard behind the scenes to enhance your browsing. You’ll save time (and money!) with Trolatunt installed, and will wonder how you lived without us!
The problem is that the same was promised by Cling Clang, Ttessab, Laflurla and many other adware applications from SuperWeb family. None of them (including Trolatunt itself) could be downloaded at the official website, which means that these programs are distributed with third party installers and downloaders. It calls for caution whenever you download and install freeware applications on your computer. If you go through the installation process automatically, you may end up with a number of programs that you neither need nor want.
Trolatunt is one of those programs, because even if it does provide you with relevant coupons and discount offers from time to time, you need to take into consideration the fact that Trolatunt may also be exploited by malevolent third parties. At first the pop-up ads may be only annoying, but due to the fact that Trolatunt does not review what kind of content is embedded into its ads, almost anyone can embed their own links into the ads as long as they know how to.
Thus, the best way to avoid being exposed to potentially corrupted content is to remove Trolatunt from the PC. Uninstalling the application via Control Panel will remove extensions from your browsers as well. On top of that, run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner to check for other potentially unwanted and/or dangerous applications. Do not hesitate to acquire a powerful antimalware tool if need be. Also, if you have any questions on Trolatunt or how to ensure your system’s security, please leave us a comment in the box below.
