Remove EverRewards ads (Improved Instructions)

removal by Lucia Danes - - | Type: Adware

EverRewards is a free application that is presented as a tool to get “exclusive access to coupons, freebies & deals” once you take short surveys. Although it promises to provide you with “rewards at the end of the path, including offers for paid surveys, cash prizes, contests, cheap stuff, games, sweepstakes, and more,” it hardly fulfills its promises. It has even been labeled as an adware type application and even a potentially unwanted program (PUP), and such categorization indicates that this program is not reliable. There are several different reasons why you should not rely on this application and its promises.

What is wrong with EverRewards?

In fact, EverRewards actually sends you various offers, but it does that in an extremely intrusive and unpleasant way. Have you ever heard about adware programs? Adware programs are applications that usually conceal the real aim to advertise partners’ content by pretending to be useful programs. In reality, generate catchy-looking ads and send them directly to the victim’s screen. Sadly, most of such ads can cause redirects to third-party websites that might be insecure. Every time a victim clicks on such adware ads, the developers of such software gains pay-per-click income. Therefore, EverRewards adware works in an exact same way.

Questions about EverRewards ads

EverRewards PUP tracks your browsing history, data entered to the visited websites, clicks on links, and similar information to find out what your browsing interests are. It obtains knowledge of the things that you look on the Internet; then, it loads advertisements that are similar to the things that interest you. Of course, such ads look very attractive, but you should NOT click on ads by EverRewards. As we have already mentioned, such ads can cause redirects to third-party websites that might be insecure. If you do not want to risk your cyber-safety, ignore EverRewards ads, or, even better – remove this ad-supported software from your PC. If you wish to get rid of these annoying ads, you have two options how to remove this PC intruder – manually or automatically. The automatic removal can be done with an anti-spyware software, for example, Reimage Reimage Cleaner .

How did this program manage to install itself on my system without my intervention?

Unfortunately, this program cannot be installed without your intervention. In fact, it can be installed ONLY with your permission, sadly, this program does not ask your permission in a direct way. Usually, it is distributed as an addition to many freeware programs, but the information about it is commonly hidden. You can find out whether the program from the Internet that you have decided to install carries optional software with it or not by reading software’s Terms of Use, or you can simply select Advanced or Custom settings and see whether it provides a list of optional components that are presented as “recommended downloads.” If you manage to find such suggestions, deselect them.

If you had already installed EverRewards adware together with some freeware a while ago, and now you would like to remove it, continue reading on page 2. We have provided EverRewards removal instructions there.

    I would like to get real discount notifications, not fake and invented ones. This program acts like a virus and you should NOT install it. Unless you like annoying, worthless ads!
