What is ScreenUp?

ScreenUp is a suspicious program that is meant to help you capture screenshots. Although it works, that does not mean that trusting this program is a good idea. On the contrary, it is far too unpredictable and suspicious to trust, and research team strongly recommends considering its elimination. At the time of research, the official installer that should be represented at did not work; however, the program was spreading. What does that mean? That means that it is quite likely to be spread by third-party software distributors. Is that dangerous? It sure is, and you have to note that malicious distributors are often using attractive programs like this one to conceal or push users into installing much more unreliable and malicious infections. Though we advise removing ScreenUp, much more malicious threats might be active, and that is an important thing to consider.

How does ScreenUp work?

According to our research team, the installation of ScreenUp can be confusing. In fact, you might not even realize you are installing this app, in which case, there should be no questions as to why it is classified as a potentially unwanted program. Furthermore, once it is installed – whether or not that was done with your permission – an uninstaller is not created, which is very suspicious. If you have uninstalled unwanted programs in the past, you know that uninstallers are available via the Control Panel. Clearly, the developer of ScreenUp does not want you to delete it, and that is not something to ignore. If you realize that the app you installed is not reliable or does not meet your expectations, you should not be stopped from removing it. The thing is that this PUP might have been created for other purposes than to just capture screenshots, and that is why its developer might want to stall its elimination.

Have you encountered any suspicious advertisements after installing this potentially unwanted program? If you have, hopefully, you have not interacted with them because that could be dangerous.
