Should you remove TrumpKard virus?

TrumpKard virus presents itself as a tool that can block particular content online. For example, if you do not want to see stories about a particular celebrity, TrumpKard allows you to do it. All you need to do is to enter the name of that person. No matter that Trump Kard App looks like a fun and even quite useful tool, it is actually an ad-supported computer program, which belongs to these software categories:

  • Adware;
  • Potentially unwanted programs (PUP).

You can download this program from its official Internet site, but it also spreads together with freeware or shareware. So if you have discovered TrumpKard application on your computer although you did not download it, it means that it was added to another program you have recently downloaded from the Internet. We do not recommend you to keep TrumpKard adware installed on your computer system, not only because it is not a very useful application, but also because it can cause annoyance for you by generating and displaying intrusive pop-up and banner ads.

TrumpKard adware blocks certain content, but displays ads

Questions about TrumpKard ads

Please listen to our advice and do not click on TrumpKard ads, unless you want to experience redirects to shady third-party websites. What is more, this ad-supported software collects personally non-identifiable information about you while you browse the Internet. This information consists of your IP address, PC geolocation, type of Operation System you use, online behavior (including search queries, history, clicks, etc.). This application admits that it uses such information in order to display targeted advertisements:

We may also use your Non-personal Information for statistical purposes and advertising attuned to your online behavior.

However, no matter what content TrumpKard introduces you to, if it is marked as “TrumpKard ads,” “powered by TrumpKard” or “ads by TrumpKard” – stay away from it. If you click on any of these ads, you risk visiting possibly infectious Internet websites. You might be redirected to sites that promote questionable programs or sites that ask you to reveal some personal information. If you care about the security of your computer, remove TrumpKard from it without a delay. You can remove it automatically with Reimage anti-malware program.

How can TrumpKard hijack your computer?

As we have already mentioned, you can download this software from its developers website. However, mostly TrumpKard adware spreads together with free programs, therefore, in order to avoid installing them, you need to be careful when you install software downloaded from the web.

  1. First of all, you should download software only from trustworthy web sources.

    TrumpKard would be a great app if it didnt serve ads. Now its just a crappy adware that no one wants to have on their computers.
