TidyNetwork virus

What is TidyNetwork virus?

TidyNetwork is not necessary a virus; however, it certainly acts as a potentially unwanted program. If you land on tidynetwork.com you are introduced to the so-called Virtual Layer Advertising platform, which is supposed to help you save time and money when browsing the web. It is promised that the browser plugin available from the site can highlight exclusive deals without any charge, which is why many Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users have already installed it onto their PCs. As soon as you click the download button and hit Run the add-on is installed without introducing you to any installation setups. Even though the installer is ‘silent’ you can find the privacy policies related to the plugin at the bottom of the download page. We strongly recommend that you read this document to find out how your security is handled by the plugin. Do you want to delete TidyNetwork virus? This is what we recommend, and so you should continue reading.

How does TidyNetwork work?

As soon as you install TidyNetwork onto the browsers the program will start collecting information related to your virtual activity. For example, if you are running a Google Chrome browser, the plugin installed can access data on all websites, access tabs and browsing activity, manage other applications, extensions or themes. This means that other browser plugins could be enabled to expose you to ads, coupons, surveys and similar ‘deals’. Have you searched ‘how to remove viruses’? Then soon enough an advertisement offering you to install allegedly reliable malware detection and removal software could pop-up. Needless to say, you should not trust any advertisements and deals presented by the plugin, especially since the Privacy Policy states:

This Site, and the TidyNetwork Software may provide third-party content, advertisements and services, and links thereto (e.g., links to third-party websites), that are owned or operated by third-parties or user generated (collectively, “Third-Party Content & Services”). […] If you access a third-party website via the TidyNetwork Software, you do so at your own risk, and you understand that this Privacy Policy does not apply to your use of such destinations.

If you believe that the plugin has helped you save money and you are 100% sure that you can handle the risks which may come along, we strongly recommend that you take the measures which will help you keep the operating system shielded against malware. If you install automatic spyware detection and removal software onto the computer right now, the risk of getting attacked by cyber criminals will decrease. Note that this is the only way to ensure full-time Windows protection.
