How to remove TTWIFI
What is TTWIFI:
Threat Classification: PUP/adware
The TTWiFi (a.k.a. TianTianWiFi) should be classified as a dangerous adware and/or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), because it uses misconfigured software bundles to install without user’s consent or because it’s capable of showing various annoying and unwanted web ads, which contain some malicious code and could take over your browser and computer very quick. It seems that the TTWIFI Ads are caused by a malicious browser extension and even though that TTWiFi is claiming, that it improves your online browsing experience, our malware and security experts are pretty sure that TTWiFi is just another ad-supported software application, which will try and use all kinds of malicious tactics just to make a bit more cash for its owners/developers by showing/streaming sponsor ads and/or affiliate links/cookies. These types of malicious applications are usually distributed using various questionable software bundles, configured to perform a silent or stealth installation and to hide additional installs from the infected user. The infected users are usually not aware of the infection until it is too late. The majority of the infected users even don’t know – How do they’ve got the TTWiFi adware!? Once installed the TTWiFi will begin showing you lots of intrusive ads on almost all websites you visit. The TTWiFi virus could also start collecting various pieces of private browsing data, such as browsing history, web searches, account credentials, tracking cookies as well as other sensitive private information and if you read their EULA / Terms, you will notice, that they could even share or sell this infection to 3rd party companies, which will later use the data for their own marketing purposes. Our security experts & malware researchers unveiled, that the TTWiFi uses a malicious browser extension, capable of injecting ads into every webpage you visit! Once installed, the TTWiFi could modify windows registry database and browsers’ settings, activating some recovery mechanisms, making the TTWiFi removal even harder. If you start getting various web ads, claiming that they are – “By TTWiFi”, “Ads by TTWiFi”, “TTWiFi Ads”, “Powered by TTWiFi”, “Brought by TTWiFi” or “Brought to you by TTWiFi” – you should consider your PC compromised and infectedbu a malware. Our security analysts concluded that you should perform a malware scan on your computer using some reputable & reliable anti-malware software product, just like SpyHunter 4. The TTWiFi adware is compatible with all well-known browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
Generally, users that have it installed on their systems might experience various pop-up or pop-under ads, coupon boxes, banners, search suggestion windows, link advertisements or other commercials, displayed on popular web pages. The victim should consider, that the search results are compromised as well, most likely overloaded with spam and other third-party advertising.
TTWIFI is usually bundled with some other free ad-supported software products and is being installed by default, when the user accepts the EULA, while performing an express/recommended installation of that software bundle. The possible distribution of TTWIFI varies but is not limited to – installing third-party toolbars, free software products, video editing software, codecs, downloading e-mail attachments, clicking on ads or banners etc..
!!! Please note, that these infections could potentially bring up other malware to your computer and even cause a loss of data. Please, do not underestimate such threats.
