What is TyphonApp?

TyphonApp is an application whose purpose is to render commercial advertisements in your browser window. Removing it is something you should consider because it will generate money for its developers and owners who will continue to produce and use similar applications down the road. It is important to understand that online advertising is in most cases is not a transparent business as it is prone to involve people who want to promote malicious content. Hence, this seemingly trivial application can severely compromise your computer’s security. Therefore, we invite you to read this whole article since it contains valuable information about this adware.

Where does TyphonApp come from?

These days, most ad-supported programs are being developed by established borderline-legitimate software companies. JustplugIt Ltd is one such company, and it is responsible for releasing TyphonApp. This company specializes in providing its clients with the means for them to create their own ad-supported programs, but the basic software platform comes from JustplugIt Ltd. This company is based in Tel Aviv, Israel and it has been around for some time now. However, its website’s content at Justplug.it has not been updated since 2013. Moreover, its programs, including TyphonApp, are rather difficult to come by. However, they are still around, and we want to talk about their distribution methods.

Since TyphonApp was created for someone else, it is difficult to say where you can get it. However, like its counterparts, this program can be found bundled with Amonetize and Vittalia installers that bundle several programs. The main program which acts as the “face” so to speak represents the whole bundle while additional software is hidden in submenus that you can access before initiating the installation process. Hence, you should always opt for advanced or custom installation settings when you download software from third-party distributors.

What does TyphonApp do?

As an ad-supported program, TyphonApp is configured to display commercial advertisements that come in the form of coupons, pop-ups, banners, interstitials, in-texts, and so on. It may render three or more ads at the same time, thus significantly slowing down your browser’s performance. In the past, ad-supported software was known as free functional programs, such as media players, and torrent clients, and so on that provided a real service in exchange for the inconvenience of seeing ads. However, today, we see software that does not provide any functions — just ads. So TyphonApp has nothing to offer, and it only serves the interests of its developers and owners.

In addition, to unwanted advertisements, this particular program will collect information about you since they need some statistical and demographic information to tailor the ads to make more money. In the case of this particular adware, it will gather information such as IP addresses (thus it obtains you approximate geographical location,) domain names, referring website addresses, and browsing and search history. This information enables this program's owners to tailor the ads and make them more appealing, and thus, profitable. Also, they can share this information with third parties to that help them “improve” their services. Whether this is true or not is debatable, but one thing was clear from the get-go — this program is useless, and now we know that it is also malicious as its promoted content is unreliable and it spies on you.
