SpyHunter for Mac User Guide

PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs)

This tab displays potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that were detected by SpyHunter for Mac. A PUP is software that a user may perceive as unwanted (even if a user potentially consented to install it or wishes to continue to use it). PUPs may engage in unwanted behavior, such as installing toolbars in web browsers, displaying advertising, and changing the default browser homepage and/or search engine. PUPs may also consume system resources and cause operating system slowdowns, crashes, security breaches and other issues. You may select any detected PUPs that you wish to remove. If you would like to exclude any detected object(s) from appearing in future scan results, please see the "Exclusions" section of this help file.
