Blast Job is an adware tool that you should keep away from your PC. This questionable web extension may fill your browsers with tons of intrusive commercial materials. The developer of this unreliable application is a company called Lamphouse Media, LLC. Most of its products don't benefit the clients in any way. This firm assures that Blast Job will show you various job offers in your area so that you may find your dream job without significant efforts. However, the new ads are not strictly limited to working positions, which may not be available in the first place. In addition to them, Blast Job may also offer you various coupons and discounts for products that you may have searched for recently. These new commercial materials are most often in the form of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners or interstitial ads. The adware may also place some in-text ads throughout the webpages. Undoubtedly, seeing the same offers again and again would not be an enjoyable experience. However, the new ads may cause more significant problems. They may affect the performance of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer negatively. The multimedia-heavy nature of some ads may decrease the loading speed or cause few-second freezes. You should be especially vigilant if you go to the promoted platforms. While some of them may be legitimate e-commerce sites, others may contain harmful software or may attempt scams. The official page of Blast Job is blastjob.com, but most people who have this adware have not downloaded it from there. The questionable extension more often sneaks in as a recommended bonus component of various freeware installers. Once it attaches to your web clients, Blast Job may become pretty hard to remove, so you should use advanced security software.
