TubeTime activity can put your computer at risk

TubeTime virus is a program that keeps sending annoying pop-up ads and placing banners on websites that you visit. Therefore, it is classified as an adware-type program, which also falls into potentially unwanted programs’ group. It pretends to be a useful app to watch Youtube videos without having to open your web browser; however, it actually has the power to connect to remote websites and download instructions, which it carries out later on. Unfortunately, this can mean that Tube Time adware might attempt to install additional software on your computer without your permission, which is obviously very dangerous. To protect your PC from invaders, we highly recommend you to remove TubeTime as fast as you can. That can be done using anti-malware software or anti-spyware software like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

During the stay on your computer system, the adware silently connects to various ad networks and gathers ads to display for you. It chooses ads based on your interests, which means that it installs tracking cookies[1] into your web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, others) to find out what websites you usually visit, what content they provide, what search queries you make, and even more. Do not think that this ad-supported program is trying to provide you with best third-party deals; in fact, nicely designed ads can be used as a bait that triggers a redirect as soon as you click on it. Such redirects can point you to dangerous Internet sites, and it goes without saying that careless Internet browsing can result in problems such as computer hack, installation of malware[2], or data leak. If you want the best for your computer and your privacy, it is the right time to think about TubeTime removal, and this task should be completed professionally. You can try to uninstall it manually using tutorial provided below, however, a full system scan using trustworthy security program is a must if you want to be 100% sure your PC is free of unwanted programs.

Attack vectors

It is unlikely that you will find any download links to get TubeTime if you search the web for this piece of software. Most likely you will encounter lots of removal tutorials explaining how to eliminate it from the system. It is so because this adware program attacks computer users in a sneaky way, by forcing them to agree to install it. It happens because this piece of spyware travels alongside popular free programs that users tend to install in a rush. Popular free programs usually suggest installing one or two additional programs; however, most of the computer users overlook these suggestions and agree to these terms by choosing Standard or Default software installation options. To refuse to install unwanted additions, it is advisable to select Custom or Advanced settings.
