What is ForTheSchools?
ForTheSchools is an adware program that you can download from fortheschools.com. There are also other ways to get this application on your computer, but we believe that users do not want to keep the application on-board. ForTheSchools is just an adware program that slows down your browser and exposes you to potentially harmful content. That is why we strongly suggest that you remove ForTheSchools from your computer right now, and then run a full system scan with a computer security tool of your choice. It is just that this adware program may be one of the many unwanted programs on-board, and you have to take care of them all.
Where does ForTheSchools come from?
As it has been established already, the official website for ForTheSchools is located at fortheschools.com. Click the GET IT NOW button on the site launches the adware download. However, it is very unlikely that users would come across this website themselves unless they get redirected to it.
In fact, a far more common method of adware distribution is bundled downloads. This would suggest that ForTheSchools spreads in software packages, bundled in one third-party installer with several other applications. Most of them are freeware or adware programs, and users download them without giving it any second thought.
The point is that you would be able to avoid getting infected (figuratively speaking) with ForTheSchools if you were to read all the steps on the freeware installation wizard. Adware programs require your permission to enter target systems, so unless you allow this program to enter your computer, it will not do so. The only explanation of having ForTheSchools on your system is that you accidentally set up the program yourself.
What does ForTheSchools do?
Technically, this application should help you do both: shop and raise funds for your school. It says that the application “converts all of your online shopping into fundraising for your school every time you make a purchase. When you or your group members purchase from any of our 1,400 participating stores, the store pays us and then we pay you and your school.” Supposedly, it is a useful marketing tactic that can be employed to make your school life better.
However, you have to keep in mind that this program also tracks your online activity so it could provide you with custom commercial advertisements. These ads appear in the form of pop-ups when you access supported shopping sites. We would have no problem with it if the pop-ups were to lead you to reliable pages. Unfortunately, ForTheSchools does not guarantee that the outgoing links redirect you to trustworthy websites.
Worse, in some cases, the ForTheSchools ads could be taken advantage of by cyber criminals, and you could find yourself stranded on a malware-related website. Therefore, it would be unwise you click the pop-ups you see on your screen.
