The Fast Cleaner App virus

If Fast Cleaner App has entered your Android smartphone or tablet, you’ve probably noticed one or more of the above-mentioned symptoms. The good news is that Fast Cleaner App isn’t a virus that will directly damage your device. The bad news is that the longer the rogue software stays in the device, the higher the chances of getting exposed to malware or other hazardous online content.

Unwanted apps like Fast Cleaner App are collectively known as browser hijackers and their purpose is to aggressively promote certain sites or products by placing obstructive ads on the users’ screens. The obvious issue with this is the annoyance that comes from the ads. However, what’s an even bigger problem is that the content that gets promoted could sometimes be unsafe and even hazardous. Reputable sites, services, or products don’t need such aggressive advertising campaigns to reach more users. On the other hand, questionable and unsafe content often relies on this sort of advertising tactics in order to gain more popularity. For that reason, it is strongly recommended that you try to avoid interacting with any of the ads or sites that this malicious app exposes you to. In our guide posted right below, we will also show you a quick method to safely remove the hijacker from your device so that its ads and redirects cease to appear.

Restart your Browser. It might be a good idea to Reboot your Android device, just in case.

  • Important!

If you are still seeing Ads in your browser, it is likely they are generated by the websites you visit and there is nothing you can do about it.

However, if you are seeing Adverts outside of your internet browser, then one of your installed Apps contains the problematic Adware. In this case you need to take a look at this guide.
