What is PPS Video Player

PPS Video Player is an application allowing users to play videos of different formats. Whilst such features can be useful for some people, the program has significant flaws that may endanger your safety. As it turned out, PPS Video Player has adware capabilities to generate advertisements and banners across the browser. It does so using a so-called “virtual layer” that enables advertisements to be shown on any page. A range of gained clicks on the advertised content brings profit to its developers. This is the main purpose of PPS Video Player, but not the improvement of users’ experience. In addition to this, an important note is that such programs can gather personal data (passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.) and sell it to third-party organizations for additional profit. This is why we recommend you delete PPS Video Player from your computer to prevent identity issues.

How PPS Video Player infected your computer

Adware can be spread via customized repacks that get downloaded from the web. Usually, people install unwanted programs unintentionally, as a result of inexperience. They do not check “Advanced” or “Custom” sections that contain promotional offers. By that, users allow Potentially Unwanted Programs to sneak into the system and add new Windows services that negate manual removal. To avert this, you should be attentive whilst using third-party repacks for the installation of the desired program. Make sure you deselect extra applications using the above-mentioned information. Also, it is worth noting that potentially unwanted programs can be touted across the web in the form of banners. As you may understand, pushing your left mouse button on such content can be dangerous for your safety.
