What is Neurowise Ads?

Neurowise is an adware that injects pop-up advertisements to your web browser without any warning

Neurowise ads virusNeurowise is a program that works closely with advertisers. Every click on the displayed advertisement creates revenue for the sponsor.

Neurowise is an adware program that causes ads indicating about the potentially unwanted intruder on your device. The application was developed by a notoriously known developer called Super Web LLC that has presented lots of similar programs causing problems to PC users. So do not get surprised if a similar program gets on your computer without any warning and starts causing numerous ads redirecting you to sites that you did not expect. The main activity of this adware[1] is to change the traffic of your searches and collect information about your other browsing activity. All this intrusive behavior affects your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and other web browsers.

Don't be surprised if you start noticing Neurowise ads right after installing some freeware which seems useful on your computer. The most common way used for spreading PUPs like this is bundling. With its help, developers connect two different programs that can be noticed only if you monitor installation of the freeware and deselect check marks that allow their installation.

However, you can also install this dubious program yourself. This application is promoted as a useful tool capable of displaying coupons and helping users save some money in this way. Sadly, that is just another trick to transmit Neurowise adware because, once inside the system, it displays intrusive advertisements and interrupts every browsing session.[2]

Nevertheless, these ads are not the worst thing that could happen to you when having this PUP on board. According to the Privacy Policy of the company, the app initiates data tracking right after being let into the system. In addition, these terms also claim that there is a possibility that the collected information will be used by third-party advertisers. You should consider Neurowise ads removal immediately after you such claims.

Disclaimer about related third parties in the Privacy Policy reads as follows:

Unfortunately, no transmission of data over the Internet can ever be guaranteed to be completely secure. it may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information transmitted to us. Any such transmission is done at your own risk. if you believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us of the problem and uninstall the Software immediately.

As you can see, the main purpose of Neurowise is to display online advertisements in various forms and generate revenue from them. This profit goes to advertiser which is sponsoring the program and other PUPs. However, the most noticeable features of adware are these:

  • Banners with advertisements fill up commonly-visited websites;
  • Pop-up windows continuously display ads from the same provider;
  • Text on web pages randomly turns into hyperlinks;
  • A browser displays fake alerts offering updates;
  • Additional tools, extensions appear on the browser from nowhere.

If you notice anything like this, remove Neurowise ads as soon as possible. Researchers[3] advise using anti-malware program like FortectIntego for the best results because this tool can eliminate damage caused by various malware from the device. This program can also indicate which software needs updating or is there any system vulnerabilities.

You should also choose the Custom or Advanced installation option. This step allows you to unmark additional programs from the installation list.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.


Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
