What is Conquerable.app

Conquerable.app is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that primarily targets macOS systems. It belongs to the Pirrit adware family and is designed to display intrusive advertisements to users. The program is often installed by users unknowingly, typically through deceptive pop-up ads or bundled with other software. Once installed, Conquerable.app hijacks the browser homepage and search engine, redirecting search queries through its own platform, which often leads to search result pages from search.yahoo.com. Once installed, Conquerable.app exhibits aggressive advertising behavior, displaying numerous ads that can disrupt the user experience and compromise device performance. It injects advertisements into websites you visit and opens new tabs in the browser that display advertisements trying to sell products, push fake software updates, and promote tech support scams. The ads linked to Conquerable.app could host malicious content, including malware. Users may inadvertently download harmful software that compromises the security and privacy of their systems. In addition to its intrusive advertising, Conquerable.app also collects user data, posing risks to privacy and security. The data collected can include IP addresses, search queries, URLs of visited websites, and geo-locations, which can be shared with third parties, potentially cybercriminals, who misuse private information to generate revenue.
