Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) YellowSend


Posted: September 7, 2015

YellowSend by ClickMeIn is an application that leaves a significant part of its clients dissatisfied. It is easy to understand why some people install it because this tool at first seems very useful. It promises its clients the option to access their personal computer from afar. This way, they will be able to transfer files from their smartphones to the PC and vice versa. However, what the majority of people don't expect is that YellowSend inserts advertising materials in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. This behavior may cause annoyance, and may be the reason to delete the application, so the specialists classify YellowSend as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). As with all ads, the pop-ups, banners and interstitial ads by YellowSend are a way to generate revenue. Whenever the user clicks on the displayed offers and coupons, he is about to visit a sponsored third-party platform. However, here comes the greatest risk of the newly generated marketing materials – you can never be sure if they will take you towards safe platforms or no. On some occasions, these ads have transferred the unsuspecting users towards pages, which were designed solely to cause harm. For this reason, you should never download any software from the advertised pages, even if it is in the form of some updates. The commercial materials by YellowSend may be the reason for your web clients to start working slower than usual or crash once in a while. You should take these aspects of the PUP under consideration when you assess if keeping it is worth it.
