What is Emotypecon?
If you use emoticons when chatting with your friends and writing emails, and you happen to come across Emotypecon, you might install this program without realizing that it is adware. Advertisement-supported software is on the rise because cyber criminals have learnt to exploit it in different ways. For example, this ad-supported program uses attractive looking services to showcase third-party links. Even though we do not say that the creators of Emotypecon are cyber criminals, you have to take it into account that they have created a very suspicious program that is used as an advertising tool. Do we recommend removing this program? We sure do, and you can learn more about this by reading our report.
How does Emotypecon work?
Did you know that Emotypecon was developed by Tuto4Pc, the same company that stands behind such ad-supported programs as GamesDesktop and mySoftToday? According to research conducted in our Anti-Spyware-101.com internal lab, these programs can spy on their users, record their browsing history, and introduce them to suspicious third-party ads. The worst part is that these programs usually travel bundled with much more unreliable threats, including isearch.omiga-plus.com and Snap.do. Although we did not witness Emotypecon travelling bundled with third-party programs, it would make sense, considering that the installer on emotypecon.com does not work. Keep in mind that the programs installed along with this adware can be more malicious, and you should not ignore them. One malicious file can do a lot of damage, and it is very easy to overlook inconspicuous infections.
The pop-ups introduced by Emotypecon are most likely to represent offers associated with emoticons, but our researchers warn that this program could showcase coupons, malware installers, and other kinds of unreliable third-party content. What is most surprising is that this content could show up even when all of your browsers are closed! The best thing you can do is ignore the ads shown to you, but that does not mean that you can ignore the program showcasing them. As mentioned previously, Emotypecon can spy on you, which means that it could put your virtual security at risk even if you are good at evading the ads injected by it. Although we do not know how the developer of this adware will use or share the information collected, we have to consider even the most horrendous scenarios.
