Remarkit is a Potentially Unwanted Program that is used to generate advertisement revenue and expose computer users to marketing materials. Remarkit is promoted as a useful Web browser add-on. However, Remarkit does not deliver on its promises and, more worryingly, may cause a large number of problems on affected computers. Because of this, Remarkit should not be installed on your computer. If you have already allowed Remarkit to enter your computer, in most cases without your knowledge, then remove Remarkit immediately. Since Remarkit may expose your computer to threatening content, security researchers suggest the utilization of a tested security program to ensure that no unsafe content has come into contact with your computer as a consequence of Remarkit advertisements and redirects.
The Dangers Associated with Remarkit
There are several reasons why malware analysts consider that Remarkit poses a threat to your computer. Listed below are some reasons why you should avoid installing Remarkit or remove Remarkit from your computer if Remarkit is already installed:
- Remarkit may expose your computer to potentially unsafe content. The main way in which Remarkit does this is by causing browser redirects, forcing your Web browser to visit websites containing potentially unsafe content. Remarkit displays a wide variety of advertisements on affected Web browsers, ranging from banner advertisements and sliding advertisements to intrusive pop-up and disruptive in-text advertisements.
- Remarkit may affect your computer's performance by consuming system resources. This means that Remarkit may cause your computer to slow down significantly, affecting your Web browser and causing it to crash or freeze frequently. Remarkit may affect your Internet connectivity, causing innocuous Web pages to take much longer than normal to load on the affected computer.
- Remarkit may violate your privacy by spying on your activity and sending data about your computer to a third party. This data may end up being used for identity theft purposes or for other types of unsafe practices.
