What is iWebar1?

IWebar1 is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that is actively spreading on the Internet these days with the help of freewares and sharewares. It tries to convince people that it's a useful browser add-on capable of delivering various deals, discounts, coupons, promo codes and similar things in a form of pop-ups. However, you should not fall for installing it because iWebar1 is yet another adware that should not be trusted. It may slither onto your computer unnoticed and implement various unwanted issues. First of all, it may hijack each of your web browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. In addition to that, it may corrupt various settings, install registries and enable third-party advertisements. As soon as you start noticing 'Ads by iWebar1' on your screen, you have to beware that an adware-type program may pose harm to your computer's security and may interfere with your privacy. IWebar1 ads may be embedded with sponsored links and redirects you to unknown domains.

IWebar1 is known for implementing suspicious activities and mainly used for affiliate marketing. We doubt that you will find it's installer on the Internet alone. However, if you see this program working in the background of the system, we are sure that you have recently installed a freeware with additional components. The problem is that, usually, those additional components are programs that belong to the category of potentially unwanted programs, adwares or browser hijackers. That's why you have to be careful and avoid installing them. The main thing that you need in order to avoid such and similar programs inside is attentiveness. Additional component (add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, extensions) may be disclosed in a misleading manner, or even hidden if people select Quick or Basic installation option. Thus, you have to select Advanced or Custom installation option and be as careful as possible. A little advice – look for ticks that are already marked for you and read carefully what they notify. If you spot such and similar notifications as 'By clicking 'I Accept' I agree with Terms and Agreements and Privacy Policy of iWebar1'.
