What is Video Tile?
You may find it irritating to have to change among browser tabs or windows to watch multiple videos, so a program like Video Tile could be of great use for you; however, we must warn you that this application is not at all what it may seem. As a matter of fact, our malware specialists have categorized it as an adware program because of its main function, i.e., showing annoying third-party commercial ads. It is possible that you do not consider ads harmful and that you have a number of adware programs on your computer for this reason. Nevertheless, it is our duty to tell you that adware can pose a threat to your virtual security since you may be presented with potentially unreliable ads and web content. It is also quite likely that this adware arrives with a bunch of other malware infections on board. Therefore, you cannot afford to waste time if you want to protect your privacy and your computer as well. You should remove Video Tile and eliminate all other possible threat sources as well.
Where does Video Tile come from?
The first time you may feel that something is not right about this application when you visit its promotional page at tilesofvids.com. This site being very simple is one thing, but the fact that you cannot actually download or install this application from its own web page makes you wonder about the reliability or functionality of this program. If you are a more experienced computer user, you may already know that this adware may be most commonly distributed in free software bundles. As a matter of fact, this is probably the most often used method when it comes to spreading useless and potentially harmful software installers, including browser hijackers, adware applications, and potentially unwanted programs as well. But you may also find more dangerous threats as well, such as Trojans, travelling in bundles.
If you are unlucky enough to download such a bundle, you may still save the day if you are careful during the installation process. Namely, you may be offered an opportunity to deselect the additional components or browser changes, but usually these will also be installed by default. A lot of computer users skip this step and that is why they think that some malicious programs have infected their computers silently, behind their backs. You can see now that most of the time it is indeed the user who initiates the download. And it is not even too difficult to acquire such an infectious bundle. It is enough to click on the wrong third-party ad or the wrong button on a suspicious file-sharing website. That is why it is important to always download programs, videos, music, and books as well from official sources. Otherwise, you will be left with no choice but to remove Video Tile and all other malware threats as well.
How does Video Tile work?
According to our specialists, this adware is identical to Gravity Space, Jungle Net, Deals Avenue, and Strong Signal, which we have already covered on this website. This application has also been found to be similar to SuperWeb adware programs. As a matter of fact, this adware is not different from any other. Its main goal is to generate revenue by routing web traffic to affiliated third parties’ websites. Therefore, with every click you make on such advertisements, you may be supporting potential criminals. These people make easy money by deceiving unsuspecting computer users. As long as there are users who click on these ads, there will definitely be schemers to take advantage of them. However, the worst news about these third-party ads is that you may find yourself on malicious websites by clicking on them. Landing on such sites can be dangerous and detrimental to your computer’s health, not to mention your bank account, should you reveal your personal details on a fake website run by criminals. You might also become a victim of identity theft if you are not careful enough. That is why we believe that it is important that you delete Video Tile before it is too late.
