removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as Ads by BeepieBear, BeepieBear virus, BeepieBear adware | Type: Adware

What is BeepieBear?

BeepieBear is another product recently presented by the SuperWeb LLC group. As the majority of apps published by this untrustworthy company, this add-on is supposed to improve users’ web browsing experience by providing them with the information about the lowest prices of certain relevant items, deals, discounts, available coupons and so on. However, instead of the label ‘trustworthy’, the app has been categorized as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). These terms have negative connotations, such as misleading advertising, unwanted redirects, suspicious third-party content, data loss and so on. Therefore, it goes without saying that you should stay away from applications that are attributed to these categories. It has been found that BeepieBear virus is usually spread via other freewares and sharewares; thus, it might get installed without being noticed. Be aware that instead of this app, you may end up with one of its clones, such as Any Angle, Product Deals, Spice Nice, AppEnable and others, on your machine. The tips on how to avoid such and similar apps will be provided in the next section.

Even though this program is non-malicious (cannot affect PCs itself), it may affect PC’s performance and may even decrease the immunity of security system. Consequently, keeping BeepieBear adware on your PC pose a higher risk of virus or malware infiltration. Besides, it may display tons of sponsored advertisements during your browsing. Be very careful with each of the ‘Ads by BeepieBear’ because they may redirect you not only to unknown domains, but also to malicious sites where you may get scammed or catch a virus infection. Finally, if you start experiencing BeepieBear redirects and other inconveniences, you should also consider privacy-related issues. The adware is blamed for tracking people’s browsing activities. It may install cookies on the affected web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) and collect the following data: IP address, PC’s location, email address, search terms, websites visited, data entered in them, clicks, etc. Thus, in order to stay safe, you should better not ignore the presence of this adware on your PC. As soon as you start seeing BeepieBear ads, we recommend running a full system scan with Reimage (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac OS X).

How can BeepieBear hijack my computer?

We have already mentioned that BeepieBear tends to spread bundled with other freewares and sharewares. Therefore, if you want to prevent its stealthy installation, you have to pay an appropriate amount of attention to the installation process of every freeware that you are going to install. Whenever you decide to install a freeware, always mind several things: 1) read as much information about the program as you manage to find; 2) avoid Quick or Basic installation; 3) Opt for Advanced or Custom installation (expanded); 4) Follow each step and make sure that you find and deselect all ‘additional components’, including BeepieBear virus. 5) Finally, if after freeware’s installation your web browser start generating suspicious-looking ads, run a full system scan with a reputable anti-spyware in order to check the system from adwares and other PUPs.
