removal by Olivia Morelli - - | Type: Adware

Jungle Gamer is an adware type program, and it should not be trusted. Although it seems like a program that provides access to various games, in reality, it is assigned to the ‘potentially unwanted programs’ (PUPs) group. In this article, we will explain why you should NOT install nor keep this software on your device.

Jungle Gamer. What kind of software is it?

Questions about Jungle Gamer ads

Jungle Gamer is not a good program, and there are various arguments to prove this statement. First of all, Jungle Gamer can be installed on your computer without your knowledge. It is distributed via bundling technique, and it means it can be installed together with other freeware programs. When this suspicious software places its components on your system, you will soon notice what is the main function of this program. What it does is it delivers numerous advertisements on your screen. You are going to notice pop-up ads, also banners or underlined in-text links placed on the websites that you visit. Such ads can be recognized quite easily because they are usually labeled as “ads by Jungle Gamer,” “Jungle Gamer deals” or “Jungle Gamer ads.” Unfortunately, these ads are deceptive, but you should never click on them!

Jungle Gamer virus

Jungle Gamer cooperates with third-party companies and seeks to promote their websites. You can expect to visit such sites if you click on Jungle Gamer ads, and that does not mean that the website you might end up on is related to the ad content in any way. It might surprise you; also, have you ever thought why such ads look so attractive and why do they display ads that provide shopping offers for the items you have recently looked up online? It is so because JungleGamer is also a spyware program, and it collects information about you. Once installed, it attaches browser add-ons on every web browser that is installed on your PC. It spies on you and tracks your search queries, browsing history, downloads, and so on. Based on such information, it selects targeted ads for you and delivers them to your screen whenever you are using your web browser. Such activity is very annoying and also can significantly slow down your computer system.

In addition to that, Jungle Gamer redirects can end you up on dangerous websites. Be very careful – some of the third-party websites may promote questionable software or suggest you various software updates for free, but you should not agree with such proposals to install them because some of the exposed content might be infectious or even malicious. Our recommendation is to remove Jungle Gamer adware as soon as you notice the ads it generates. You can do that with an anti-spyware software, for example, Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

How did Jungle Gamer hijack my PC?

Jungle Gamer hijack can occur in case you tend to install software carelessly. Please keep in mind that computer parasites and other unwanted programs are frequently distributed as additions to other free programs. Whenever you install a new program on your PC, make sure you monitor the installation process in a right way. You have to check if your selected program promotes third-party software or not. To find that out, you must read Terms of Use document. Later on, be sure you choose Advanced or Custom installation mode. This configuration opens another setup window, which discloses the list of optional apps that were added to your selected program. To avoid receiving these additions, deselect the proposals to install them.
