What is Jingermy.com

Jingermy.com was classified as being part of the Video Downloader Pro extension. This unwanted extension issued in Google Chrome triggers alert messages across many security programs (including AVG, Malwarebytes). The threat notifications appear each time users search through the Chrome browser. As the investigation went on, both users and customers could not get the reason it pops. Soon after running some research, it turned out there was an unwanted add-on causing such triggers. There are many other unwanted extensions that may be related to browser hijackers or adware as well. Although Jungermy.com is barely similar to any of these, cybercriminals may use its extension for data collection. Such extension types tend to gather passwords, IP-addressed, geolocations, and other data under the shadow of useful features. Video Downloader Pro is meant to download videos, but there are some secondary activities identified by anti-malware software as potentially dangerous. Now you know Video Downloader Pro is the culprit meaning its total removal should solve the issue eventually. In case you struggle to do it yourself because Jingermy.com keeps coming back multiple times, make sure to follow our instructions below.

How Jingermy.com infected your computer

Unless users installed an unwanted extension on their own, then it could be done accidentally whilst downloading third-party software. Developers of low-quality software are crafty enough to distribute their apps without users’ consent. To do so, most bundle Potentially Unwanted Programs with free, cracked, or pirated software advertised on torrent-sharing websites, P2P networks, and other kinds of resources. Most users lack attentiveness, which would have been useful to spot unwanted software hidden inside of a setup. Usually, it is camouflaged under “Advanced” or “Custom” sections which become visible after users agree with “Terms of use” at the very beginning. Missing such sections and leaving their content untouched is more likely to cause unnecessary infections, which impose unknown changes. This is why it is important to avoid installing promoted software as much as possible, even in case it is marked as something “helpful”. Below, you will find a full-fledged guide towards combating such threats now and in the future.
