Remove Blast Job ads (Free Instructions)

removal by Olivia Morelli - - | Type: Adware

Blast Job is a program that promises to provide a variety of job offers in your area. Although it seems to be a beneficial program to find a new job easily, it is just a deceptive application that aims to trick you into thinking that this program is reliable. Sadly, it is not. Moreover, this application is not only distributed via the download link on its official page. Besides, Blast Job app is also spread in a shady software distribution method, called bundling. Now, we are going to explain what bundling is.

How does Blast Job hijack computers?

As we have already stated, Blast Job is mostly spread via the bundling technique. Bundling means attaching one or few programs to another one, and creating a bundled software this way. Bundled software is a set of programs, but however, it usually looks like an individual app. It is so because the information about possible attachments usually is hidden in program’s Terms of Use document. It is not a secret that most computer users tend to ignore this document and agree with its statements without even reading them. As a consequence, they can end up with additional software on their computers. Please follow these steps in order to avoid such deceptive installation of unwanted software:

  1. Read Terms of Use document. Look for statements claiming that your selected software promotes third-party applications.
  2. Adjust the installation settings by opting out Default/Standard/Basic installation option. Instead, opt for Advanced/Custom installation mode. If you have downloaded a bundled software, then you should see a list of the additional software that is attached to your preferred program.
  3. Deselect the suggestions/agreements to install these suggested applications.

Blast Job is a potentially unwanted program (PUP); moreover, it is an adware program, too.

If Blast Job PUP attacks the computer system, you might start receiving “ads by Blast Job,” “powered by Blast Job,” “Blast Job ads” or “brought to you by Blast Job” labeled ads in a form of banners or pop-up windows. You might be surprised how catchy these ads look. They even seem to deliver ads that are very familiar to your needs and current interests! However, do you ever wondered why this app delivers such engaging content?
