What is Tigobully?

You probably did not even notice how Tigobully entered your PC. It is very likely because this program seemingly appears out of nowhere when you expect it the least. It perches on your Chrome browser, and you probably do not even see it there until the extension starts acting up. This acting up is what concerns us the most about Tigobully. Albeit potentially unwanted programs are not direct malware threats, it would still be a good idea to remove them all from your system immediately. Your computer’s security should be one of your top priorities, so do not hesitate any longer.

Where does Tigobully come from?

Have you noticed how we say “remove them all” as in plural? That is because the chances are Tigobully does not travel alone. Of course, it all depends on the distribution method used by this application, but it is always very likely that potentially unwanted programs will come bundled in packs. Thus, if you are not sure how many unwanted apps you have installed on your PC, you can always scan it with a security tool that will tell you the truth.

Tigobully used to have a page on the Chrome Web Store, and when it did, it must have looked like a reliable extension that could provide users with some useful function. However, Google has removed the page already, and now the application mostly comes from random pop-ups. The thing is that the websites that display those pop-ups and the names of the extension they promote constantly change. Hence, it might be hard to pinpoint one exact website that would be responsible for everything.

What’s more, the type of pop-ups that distribute this extension is rather intrusive. The moment you click a link or open a website that generates that pop-up, the pop-up will maximize your browser’s window and open a dialog box. The dialog box will ask you to install the extension or leave the website. While it should not be too hard to close the window, the dialog box might resist being closed, so a few users could feel inclined to add the extension to their browser. And that is just one of the many scenarios this application could use.

What does Tigobully do?

Like most of the similar applications, Tigobully is there to make it seem as though it will provide you with some useful function. However, that is rather far from the truth. Albeit the application itself is free, it will enter your computer with the intention to make some money. The program will steal from your directly. Instead, it will generate third-party commercial advertisements, expecting you to click them.

The program will make sure you click them because it will also collect information on your web browsing habits via tracking cookies. While extensions cannot collect personally identifiable information, they can more or less figure which websites you frequent and what you usually search for online. So with that knowledge, Tigobully can also display a commercial content you might find interesting.

While this scheme is very far from malicious, it is not safe because it could be exploited by malevolent third parties. If that happens, you can be sure that it will only be a matter of time until you get infected with extremely dangerous programs. Of course, we are not trying to say that this is the reason this extension enters your system. On the contrary, Tigobully simply wants to make a few rounds earning some money for its creators. But the program is developed in a way that makes it really easy for cyber criminals to make use of it. And that is actually the main reason you need to get rid of it.

How do I remove Tigobully?

It is not hard to remove this extension. You can easily delete it via your browser’s settings. On the other hand, if you feel that your computer is slower than the usual, you can run a full system scan with a security application of your choice. In the case more unwanted programs are found, you can simply remove them automatically. At the same time, by acquiring a security product, you will protect your computer and your personal data from other potential intruders.
