Greacore is a rogue iPhone app that has been created for the purpose of popularizing certain products and sites on the device’s screen. Greacore tends to acquire extensive permissions in the iPhones it gets installed on, potentially compromising the safety of the devices.
All these changes, ads, and redirects are supposed to make money for the people behind Greacore. However, in doing so, they could also expose your device to much more serious dangers, including phishing viruses, Trojans, Ransomware, Spyware, and more. Depending on what permissions this unwanted app has acquired, it may collect information about your browsing history, currently installed apps, iOS version, location, and more. This info is mainly sold to other online advertisers or used by the creators of Greacore themselves for the purposes of customizing the ads you see and making them more relevant to you so that you’d tap on them more often. However, there’s no way of knowing if this info won’t also be used in other, more harmful ways.
This app is probably not something you’d enjoy having on your iPhone because, as soon as Greacore.com gets installed, it starts to display pop-ups, ads, and banners on the device’s display while you are connected to the Internet. It is also likely to cause your Safari to redirect you to sites you’ve never heard of and/or change the default search engine of the browser. The homepage of Safari may, too, get modified or outright replaced by Greacore.com.
All in all, if you want to protect your device, we advise you to complete the removal guide below so that the unwanted app is fully uninstalled.
