Remove Constant Fun ads (Removal Guide)

removal by Olivia Morelli - - | Type: Adware

There are so many potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) created nowadays, but the greater number of computer users still do not know how to protect their computer from them. Today we are going to present yet another PUP, which belongs to the adware category. It is called Constant Fun, and it is an ad-supported program, which is highly suspicious. If you have spotted “Constant Fun ads,” “Constant Fun deals,” “powered by Constant Fun” or “Constant Fun ads” pop-ups on your screen, we recommend reading this article to learn what has happened to your computer.

Why you should not keep Constant Fun adware on your computer

Adware type programs (in this case – Constant Fun) are presented as beneficial tools. Constant Fun states that it is an advantageous program that can help to enhance your browsing experience. However, we have analyzed this program and could not find a single advantageous feature of it. This program brings only interferences. The first thing we have noticed is that this program slows down the computer system. Therefore, it does not enhance the browsing experience at all. Vice versa – it delivers numerous ads pretending that they are generated by the websites you visit. However, you can recognize that these ads are fake by the text on them – you should see the Constant Fun app name on them. We strongly urge you not to click on these ads by Constant Fun.

Constant Fun virus

It is a known fact that these ads display interesting content because they track the victim’s browsing activity via the extension that Constant Fun installs on your Internet browsers. This rogue software monitors your browsing history, downloads, and even search queries. Based on such information, the Constant Fun PUP selects and delivers particular ads for you. You should not believe that the content these ads display is realistic at any point – these ads are created to look attractive, but they only seek to force you to click on them. Constant Fun ads usually contain suspicious hyperlinks that can end you up on suspicious third-party websites, which usually promote questionable apps. Even if you receive an offer to install free programs, which might look beneficial at the first sight, bypass such offers and do not agree to install software from unfamiliar websites. You can never know if these websites promote secure programs, so there is always a possibility to end up with infectious software on your PC. If you are a security-minded PC user, we strongly advise you to install a reliable spyware removal tool, for instance, ReimageIntego. Such program can deeply scan your system and search for spyware and malware. If it detects any computer threats, it can remove them immediately.

Questions about Constant Fun ads

Constant Fun is a spyware, and spyware is mostly spread via bundling method. This distribution technique makes it easier to spread PUPs and other critical programs seamlessly. It helps to attach optional apps to freeware and present it as an ‘optional download.’ The underlying cause of installing PUPs without realizing it is that computer users tend to install programs in a hurry. Most of them just click the “Next” button until the last setup stage and then finishes the installation process in a rush. You should not rush to use your new program like this – you must install it carefully if you do not want to end up with several unexpected apps on your system.

To avoid installing software attachments, you should follow these steps:

  1. Pay attention to every installation step.
  2. Do not forget to read the Terms of Use form.
  3. Opt out the Default/Standard installation option.
  4. Instead, select Advanced or Custom one.
  5. Deselect the agreements to install optional downloads.

So that is it! It is really easy to make sure you install only one program without any shady apps alongside it. However, if your computer is already infected with adware, we recommend you to remove it. To find out how to do it, please read the information on the next page.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
