How Harmful is Revjet Ads?
Since it is considered adware, Revjet Ads is an extension that doesn’t pose the biggest security risk (that “honor” probably lies with Ransomware). The reason is that it doesn’t really do anything else but open doors for other viruses to come in through. So indirectly it may be quite damaging, but overall, it’s a medium annoyance, mashed in with some slowing down of the system. But nevertheless it is more harmful the longer it manages to retain its place on your PC, so remove it at once if you don’t want even bigger headaches. As soon as it latches on to you, you will start feeling your computer is becoming sluggish. Revjet Ads slows down processors. Symptoms related to this are mainly:
- Sound Glitching
- Temporary freezing
- Browser Crashing
The biggest problem, though, are the fake banners and pop-ups that will prompt you to install updates or “missing” plugins. These are fakes adware use to try deceiving you into allowing them to install more of their buddies. If they have their way, your system will soon be clogged up with malicious software that can steal your passwords or encrypt your files and ask for a ransom payment.
How Revjet Ads Works?
This application, slowly but surely, builds its base of operations through advertisements and pop-ups that aggressively . It has two particular for doing this: the creators of Revjet Ads are keen on promoting websites they own; or they are promoting said websites for someone else. The product discounts are real as far as I could tell, but some of the links leading to them may contain viruses. So, to put in perspective, even if behind everything, this is a real promotional tool, it basically has the finesse of someone strapping you to a chair so you can watch Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
