Beautifulfreeapp “Virus”?

Although many people refer to it as Beautifulfreeapp “Virus”, this is not accurate. Beautifulfreeapp is not a virus but a browser hijacker. But what is a browser hijacker? Well, this is a general term to describe software that generates ads for your computer, tablet, smartphone etc. Browser hijacker programs/applications are everywhere and are notorious for their intrusive nature and obstructive behaviour. However, browser hijacker should not be confused with malicious programs like Ransomware or Trojan Horses. There’s a big difference between these two categories. While viruses are, without a doubt, very harmful for your device’s system and virtual security/privacy, browser hijacker programs/applications are pretty peaceful and safe. This, however, does not make them any more wanted. Due to the ceaseless barrage of annoying adverts and their tendency to constantly obstruct your normal working process, you surely wouldn’t want anything like Beautifulfreeapp.pw residing on your device. That is why below this article you can find a detailed guide on how to successfully uninstall this intrusive browser hijacker and remove any traces of it.

Our advice for you

Before we get to the actual removal part, take a few moments and make a mental note of the following tips concerning browser hijacker-containing apps.

  • Don’t interact with the ads – as we already mentioned, browser hijacker itself is quite harmless. However, some of its ads may still contain potential security hazards. In the majority of cases this is not the case and the ads you see, as annoying as they may be, are not dangerous to your device. Anyway, there’s no need to take any risks, therefore, avoid tapping on those ads until you get rid of Beautifulfreeapp.
  • Read application comments – researching an app before downloading it is always a good idea and may save you the need to deal with an browser hijacker
  • Consider installing a security software – this might help you avoid the installation of browser hijacker-containing apps. However, know that sometimes even apps that are supposed to keep your device clean, might display annoying ads, which is basically the same as an browser hijacker.
