Tune Fanatic by BlipTab Inc. is yet another adware, which promises to help people access the latest songs, videos, music reviews and so on. Unfortunately, once installed it will not only fail to improve your web browsing experience, but may even interrupt your browsing and expose your computer to unsafe websites. Security experts are perceiving this program as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) or an adware due to various downsides that it has. Once installed, Tune Fanatic virus may start tracking you and investigating your browsing habits. It’s set to accumulate search terms, mostly visited websites, data entered and time spent on them, clicks, IP address, PC’s location, and so on. Be aware that gathered information may be sold to third parties. Besides, it may be transmitted to advertisers who prepare personalized advertisements in order to make them more eye-catching. Once those ads are prepared, you may start receiving various pop-ups, pop-unders, banners and other forms of ads during your browsing. Fortunately, you will easily distinguish what kind of program causes those ads because they are typically marked as ‘Ads by Tune Fanatic’, ‘ Tune Fanatic Deals’, ‘Powered by Tune Fanatic’ and so on. It’s not recommended to click on them unless you are sure that they are filled with reliable content. Unfortunately, are pretty sure that some of them are linked to suspicious third-party websites.

How can Tune Fanatic hijack my computer?

Tune Fanatic is yet another dubious application that seems to be used for increasing ranking for predetermined websites, generating revenue via pay-per-click system, promote third-party products, and so on. Unfortunately, Tune Fanatic is set to implement lots of suspicious activities due to which security experts do not recommend installing it. Speaking about software installation, it’s important to mention that the distribution of Tune Fanatic redirect virus is another negative side of this app. It tends to infiltrate random computers bundled with other freewares. ‘Bundling’ is a deceptive distribution method that is typically employed for monetization purposes. Unfortunately, it’s a very tricky way that enables various third-party apps (add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions) to infiltrate computers without being noticed. In order to prevent this from happening, you should select Advanced or Custom installation all the time because Quick or Basic installation option may automatically install all ‘additional components’. It’s very important to remember that ‘optional downloads’ are typically marked by default and need to be unmarked if you are not willing to install them. Therefore, select Advanced installation mode and check everything as carefully as possible.
