What is Outfox TV?
Outfox TV is NOT a virus or malware. However, you should know that this program has been accused for various annoying and suspicious activities. This has encouraged some of security vendors to include it to 'potentially unwanted program' (also known as PUP) or 'adware' categories. The first and the most important thing that should be remembered about this application is that it may infiltrate your PC in a bundle with other free downloads. So, you may be surprised after detecting it on your machine and may also start thinking that it hijacked it just like viruses do. In reality, it has nothing to do with infiltration methods that are used by cyber threats. People just agree to install it on their computers because they don't bother to monitor installation of the freeware. That's why you should always check what programs are you installing and what attachments are offered in a bundle with them. If you would leave the checkmark saying 'Save Outfox.TV as a tab in web browser' or 'Show Desktop Launchbar on startup', you can easily let outfox.tv hijack your web browser. In fact, it may easily settle down on each of your web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc. In addition to that, you may notice continuous pop-up notifications during your browsing. This activity can't harm computer and can't lead it to the infiltration of malware. However, it may easily disturb your browsing on the web. After clicking on any of Outfox TV ads, you may be redirected to its official website or predetermined site that seeks to increase its page rank, visitors' number or sales.
