What is ViewPassword?

ViewPassword is an adware-type program, which has been noticed for its suspicious and sometimes very annoying activities. While this program can't be called a virus, we have to warn you that there is a plenty of unwanted activities that it may try to initiate on your computer. The most obvious of them is continuous pop-up ads that may start appearing on each of your web browsers no matter if you want to see them of not. If 'Ads by ViewPassword', 'brought to you by ViewPassword', 'by ViewPassword', 'ViewPassword ads' and similar notifications have already started interrupting you, it means that your computer has already been affected by a potentially unwanted program or, in other words, an adware. In most of the cases, such applications tend to enter PC systems in a bundle with other applications (freeware, shareware, etc.) as 'free additions'. After doing so, they may initiate changes in some of your system settings and then may start interrupting you with their annoying pop-up ads, in-text links, banner ads and other commercial content. Beware that such programs are also capable of tracking PC users and collecting data which is related to their search terms, mostly visited websites, data that is entered when visiting these websites, etc. This information is usually considered as personally non-identifiable but we still think that you should try to keep it private.

When trying to get rid of ViewPassword adware, you should keep in mind that this program installs its add-on on each of web browsers that can be found on computer. After doing that, it starts causing continuous alerts and other mentioned activities. If you have been suffering from them for a while, you should waste no time and check the system for ViewPassword. The easiest way to do that is with a help of reputable anti-spyware. For eliminating this virus, we recommend you either SpyHunter (compatible with Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (compatible with Windows OS and Mac OS X).


ViewPassword is promoted via two different methods: you can install this program on your PC system manually, just like any other program. In most of the cases, this happens after people are convinced that this program is capable of improving their browsing. However, you should also keep in mind that this application may infiltrate your computer in a bundle with freeware and shareware. This method has been initiating various discussions on the Internet because people have been hardly notified that they will download ViewPassword to their computers in a bundle with one or other program. However, you can prevent infiltration of such programs by inspecting the whole installation process of the freeware and unchecking this check mark that agrees to download ViewPassword. For that you should select Custom or Advanced installation of the freeware. If you think that this program is inside your computer, follow this guide:
