What is PhishAlert?

PhishAlert is a program which usually enters systems unnoticed; however, users tend to download it themselves too because they believe that PhishAlert will not allow them to end up on phishing websites. If you have done that too, we suggest that you remove PhishAlert from your system immediately because this application is not beneficial at all. In fact, it is even classified as an advertising-supported application (adware) by many researchers. People who do not download and install this program themselves find the presence of PhishAlert rather surprising because this program does not have a GUI (a graphical user interface). Because of this, users tend to keep this program installed on their PC’s for a while. Have you already checked Control Panel and found out that PhishAlert is installed? If so, eliminate this program from the system as soon as possible. It will definitely not do anything good for you, so we are sure that you will not miss it.testtest

How does PhishAlert act?

If you do not want this to happen, you must delete PhishAlert as soon as possible. In the meantime, make sure that you do not click on any of its ads because they might take you to undesirable web pages that are full of malicious software. Of course, PhishAlert is considered to be an unreliable program not only because it shows commercial advertisements. As specialists at have found, PhishAlert might even change your DNS settings without permission and there is even a slight possibility that this software will collect information about your activities on the web.

PhishAlert is definitely not the only program that might enter your system without permission. There are thousands of other applications that are distributed in bundles with other programs. There are only two things you can do about that: install a security tool to protect your system from undesirable software and install programs in the future carefully because you might be allowed to deselect what you do not want to install on your system.

How to get rid of PhishAlert

Advertising-supported applications only generate traffic to different web pages and receive money from pay-per-click websites. They rarely act as they promise to. Therefore, it is not surprising that PhishAlert is basically a useless program. Luckily, you will be able to get rid of it via Control Panel. If you still see advertisements after you do that, we suggest scanning the system with an automatic scanner because there might be other adware programs that show ads installed on the system, or you have not deleted PhishAlert fully.
