What is BlueAmulet?

BlueAmulet is a browser add-on that is classified as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). While from the first glimpse it does seem as a ‘shopping helper’, in reality it’s purpose to promote affiliate parties and increase the rank of their websites. Therefore, the promises that BlueAmulet adware is going to provide the most relevant information about deals, discounts, promo codes, coupons, and similar things that may help you save time and money can be treated as bogus. In fact, “Ads by BlueAmulet” are predetermined, what means that they are not prepared according to your preferences, but rather filled with the links to the websites that seek to boost traffic. The crucial problem is related to the fact that no one checks what kind of content is disguised under BlueAmulet ads. Third parties are left free to create ads and change their content whatever they want, so there is no chance of knowing whether destination websites are reliable or not. Not to mention the fact that adwares can easily be exploited by cyber criminals and misused for spreading malicious programs. Security experts warn that in the worst case scenario BlueAmulet redirects may force you to visit unsafe websites that have been contaminated with viruses, malware or other adwares.

In addition, BlueAmulet installs cookies on all the most popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer). Do you get the picture? Cookies are small files used for collecting data. According to the malware research that has recently been initiated, BlueAmulet adware’s target is browsing-related information like, for instance, search terms, clicks, IP address, PC’s location, email address, websites visited, and so on. However, unauthorized collection of such data is also treated as a privacy violation, so you should not ignore this. At best, we recommend you to remove BlueAmulet virus from the system using Reimage or another reputable anti-malware in order to ensure cyber security.

How can BlueAmulet hijack my computer?

BlueAmulet is a typical adware, what means that it spreads not as an individual application, but as an additional component of other free software. It can be attached to various download managers, media players, PDF creators, and other software that is usually downloaded from the Internet daily. Therefore, it’s very important to pay close attention to the freeware’s installation process and, therefore, ensure that all ‘optional downloads’ are located and deselected. In order to check freeware appropriately, it’s a must to select Advanced or Custom installation mode, which is expanded if compared to Quick or Basic installation. It means that you will get the whole picture of what you selected freeware is filled with if it is. Don’t forget to untick all ‘optional downloads’ before terminating the installation.
