What is CharityTools?
The creators of unreliable programs are usually good at introducing them in a very attractive manner. The clandestine CharityTools is an advertisement-supported program that cannot be trusted, but many users believe it to be a genuine and benevolent tool. Our Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have found that this program can be installed illegally, without your permission. If this happens, you should have no trouble identifying this ad-supported program as a threat. Unfortunately, it is likely that some computer users will download it believing that it is a trustworthy program. In this case, it might be difficult for these users to realize that the unreliable ad-supported program requires removal. If you want to learn how this app works and how dangerous it might be, please continue reading this report.
How does CharityTools work?
According to our researchers, CharityTools is related to BrowseForTheCause. Both of these programs have the same digital signature, Domain Web Developers LLC. Although both of these programs might promise to help you save money and donate part of your expenses to a selected charity, they cannot be trusted. First of all, the shopping deals introduced by these programs might be bogus, and it is likely that you would save more money by researching deals yourself. Second, it is unlikely that any money would go to a real charity, which is extremely devious. If you visit charitytools.org, you will be introduced to an advertising platform that offers third-party advertisers a platform to showcase their deals and offers. Note that the layout of this site is identical to the one representing Run Ad at runad.net, which only proves that this site is fictitious. Unfortunately, most users are unaware of this site because CharityTools is spread using other sources.
If you do not get rid of CharityTools, it will display ads at the bottom of every page that you visit. Even if these ads show attractive deals, you should not interact with them at any point. Some of the ads injected by this adware could hide links to corrupted sites, and this is the risk you need to consider before you click on these ads.
