Intrusive ads on your android smartphone? This article can help you!
We all hate when annoying adverts start popping-up in the middle of our working process, whether that would be on our PC or smartphone. While sometimes you cannot do anything about the obstructive ads since they are often an integrated of sites you visit, very often those ads are coming from within your device due to the presence of a specific type of software called browser hijacker. In this article we will give you some advice on how to deal with FreeCloudApps – an browser hijacker that is usually associated with android devices.
How does browser hijacker get into your device?
While browser hijacker for PC usually comes as separate programs that get installed by being bundled to other software, browser hijacker for android is usually a built-in feature for some of the apps you may download. This means that if you’ve installed an app on your smartphone which had FreeCloudApps integrated in it, the only way to get rid of the intrusive software is to uninstall that application. A good piece of advice here is to research apps that you think may contain a built-in browser hijacker before installing them onto your device. If you currently have FreeCloudApps.pw on your smartphone and are seeking a way to have it removed, we can help you do it with our guide on how to remove browser hijacker for android, just below this article.
However, before we get to that, take a moment to learn a bit more about FreeCloudApps.pw and software similar to it. Many people believe FreeCloudApps “virus” to be something entirely malicious. This is not accurate though, let us explain. While many may consider browser hijacker to be some kind of malicious viruses, we are here to tell you that even if you have on your device, there’s probably no need to worry. browser hijacker is not dangerous and does not seek to mess-up your smartphone. Besides, FreeCloudApps is pretty easy to remove (unlike malicious viruses like Ransomware). However, we should still warn you that, as harmless as a browser hijacker is, it may still lead you into exposing your system to potential security threats via its adverts. That is why you should avoid interacting with the ads you see displayed on your screen. This might be difficult with smartphones because often those pop-ups would cover your whole screen, forcing you tap on them so as to use your device. If you suddenly get redirected to an internet page by the browser hijacker, make sure that you close it as quickly as possible, again, without interacting with it.
