What is New App?
New App is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) developed by SuperWeb LLC. This browser add-on claims to improve the Internet browsing experience by enabling various features such as coupons and comparison shopping, and may seem to provide legitimate and useful functionality.
New App, however, is classed as adware, since it employs a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' to install on Internet browsers during installation of other software.
Following successful infiltration on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, the user will experience intrusive online ads generated by New App. Clicking these advertisements may cause high-risk adware or malware infections.
In addition, users' Internet browsing activity is monitored by this PUP. New App records various software and hardware information including IP addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, unique identifier numbers, and other data that is likely to be personally identifiable.
This information tracking may lead to serious privacy issues or identity theft. New App is identical to other browser extensions developed by SuperWeb LLC. Simple for You, Triple Pose, Web Amplified, and Roaming Rate are just some examples from a long list.
Neither New App, nor any of these other apps, provide any useful value - this company releases identical applications under different names to avoid detection by legitimate anti-spyware and anti-virus suites. Therefore, you are strongly advised to eliminate New App from your system.
New App, and other similar adware, is usually distributed via small programs called 'download clients' (also called 'download managers', 'installers', etc.) on freeware download websites such as download.com, soft32.com, softonic.com, and many others.
Download websites monetize their traffic and free services by offering installation of additional applications together with the chosen software. These applications are described as '100% legitimate and virus-free', however, they are mostly categorized as adware.
To avoid installation of New App, or other similar adware, be attentive when downloading free software and never accept offers to install any additional programs.
Furthermore, installation of downloaded software should be performed using the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' options - this will reveal any concealed applications listed for installation and allow you to uncheck them. If you have installed New App, follow the guide below to eliminate this PUP from your system.
