This page aims to help you remove the TTwifi “Virus”. These TTwifi “Virus” removal instructions work for all browsers and Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7 and XP.
In general, TTwifi “Virus”, as users mistakenly call it, is not considered as a virus. Why so? Because it has some major differences from a typical virus. Firstly, the goals of both are far from similar. While a virus is mainly characterized as a piece of software that reproduces inside your system (just like a biological virus), TTwifi is recognized as Adware. Instead of aiming to copy itself onto other files, its main goal is to spread unwanted ads to your favorite browsers such as Chrome or Firefox. These ads come in different shapes and sizes too.
What is TTwifi?
As we stated previously, the TTwifi “Virus” is defined as an instance of Adware. Just like its name suggests, its a type of software that is mainly purposed with filling your browser with ads that may or may not be appropriate or relevant. The history of Adware is that it started as something non-malicious but ended up being used more and more as a tool of earning money by using “social engineering”. If you aren’t aware what this term means, it is a discipline which aims to change or influence particular actions or attitudes on a large scale. In other words, its the way the developers of TTwifi trick you into clicking on the ads by providing content on them that is alluring or engaging. They can even show you ads that are tuned to your tastes and preferences by using various methods. The goal of all this is always the same. Money. Money moves the world and it makes people do anything to get as much as they can. The creators of TTwifi are no exception.
Symptoms of TTwifi
The symptoms you should be experiencing if you are a victim of this Adware are as follows:
- One of the things you’ll notice when browsing the web are the so called banners. Just like their name suggests, they are rectangles placed on the sides of the content area. While not as obstructive as some of the rest, they tend to be rather large and equally annoying as the others.
- The next thing you’ll see are the in-text ads. In their basic form they represent words linked to various other places around the web. In other words, hyperlinks. Not all of them end there, as sometimes developers add a pop-up once you hover your mouse over the link.
- The last but certainly not least are the pop-up ads. Chances are that that will be the first thing you’ll notice when loading a page on your browser. As their name suggest they “pop-up” in front of you and are filled with an ad of some sorts.
In addition to that, they also serve the double purpose of collecting your browsing related information and transmit it towards their creator. Next, using different algorithms, the ads you’d normally see get adjusted to better suit your preferences and likes. This is where TTwifi becomes quite cunning. The ads become more likeable in a way and may even show you a product you’ve been looking to buy at a much lower price. Do not be deceived by these attempts to make you click on one of the ads. It’s important to never interact with the them. If you click, several things tend to happen.
- Firstly, a new page opens up with might seem like the thing you were looking for by clicking, but this is just a disguise set up to fool you. The websites that these links will lead you to are always harmful and should be ignored.
- Secondly, you also help the creator gain some money “for his efforts”. Most, if not all, of these ads are set up with a pay-per-click advertising model in mind. This means that for every click, a small amount of money is sent to the creators. There’s nothing worse than paying money to the attackers of your PC.
And with that, this pretty much sums up what you need to know when facing TTwifi. Removing or uninstalling it should be rather straightforward for someone who is experienced. If you happen to be a first-timer, then we recommend you use our removal tool to deal with the problem.
