What is Adware Cleaner?

Known as adware, these malicious or unwanted programs may display annoying ads on your Mac desktop or open webpages in your browser without your consent.

How to scan my Mac for adware?

Step 2. Click the blue Start Scan button at the bottom of the right panel

Step 3. Remove all adware items found by clicking the blue Delete button

How can I avoid adware from downloading?

Tip #1. Be selective about the apps you download to your computer. Make sure the app is from a trusted and well-known developer before downloading it, as some apps can carry spyware and other unwanted programs.

Tip #2. Read every step and licensing agreements during the software installation. They should tell you everything about how your data is collected, stored, and shared with third parties and what other tools might be installed.

Tip #3. Keep your Mac software and iOS software up to date. Some software updates include improvements that help control pop-ups.

What is the difference between adware and viruses?

Virus is a specific type of malware. It is a contagious piece of code that infects the other software on the host system and spreads itself once it is run. It is mostly known to spread when software is shared between computers. This acts more like a parasite.

Adware is also known as advertising-supported software. It is software which renders advertisements for the purpose of generating revenue for its author. The advertisements are published on the screen presented to the user at the time of installation. Adware is programmed to examine which sites the user visits frequently and to present and feature related advertisements. Not all adware has malicious intent, but it becomes a problem anyway because it harms your Mac’s performance and can be annoying.
