What kind of software is EyeEase?
After downloading and installing the EyeEase application, we learned that it has parameters of adware - it displays intrusive advertisements. Our team discovered EyeEase on a questionable (supposedly official) website. It is worth mentioning that most users download and install adware inadvertently.
EyeEase in detail
Advertisements generated by EyeEase can open shady websites asking to provide sensitive information, urging to call fake technical support numbers, instructing to download potentially malicious software, etc. Also, these ads can cause unexpected downloads or even installations by executing certain scripts.
Additionally, we found that EyeEase can read and change data on all visited pages. It may be gathering information about users (e.g., browsing data) and even sensitive data. What is worse, its developers may misuse obtained data for malicious purposes. Thus, it is strongly recommended not to trust the EyeEase application/browser extension.

Adware in general
All adware-type apps generate unwanted advertisements. In some cases, they have additional capabilities. For example, they hijack web browsers (change their settings) to promote fake search engines and gather information. It is common for adware-type apps to be promoted as legitimate and useful (EyeEase is supposed to provide dark mode for websites).
How did adware install on my computer?
EyeEase has an "official" website. It gets added to a web browser after following the steps on that page. Also, adware is often distributed via fake installers, software bundles, shady advertisements, etc. In all cases, users download and install adware without knowing it will display unwanted ads.
Installers containing adware or other unwanted apps usually have "Advanced", "Custom", or other settings. Adware gets installed after finishing installations without changing those settings.
How to avoid installation of unwanted applications?
Always use official websites and stores to download applications. Avoid using other sources such as third-party downloaders, shady pages, P2P networks, torrent sites, etc. Check downloaders and installers for "Custom", "Advanced", and other settings and deselect included adware before downloading and installing software.
Do not click on advertisements and fake buttons displayed by/on questionable websites. Never agree to receive notifications from suspicious websites. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
