How does MyAppStash.com work?
Once this program gets inside your PC, your home page is replaced by MyAppStash.com and MyAppStash Search, which they claim is powered by Yahoo, becomes your default search engine. This program hijacks your browsers’ settings, because it needs to alter search results. MyAppStash.com earns a lot of money from promoting sponsored websites. Their revenue grows for every click on the predetermined website. That is why it floods you with advertisements and links to sponsored websites. In between legitimate search results you will find many links which may be completely unrelated to your search queries. The constant redirection and the numerous pop-up advertisements are deeply annoying, not to mention extremely dangerous to the safety of your computer.
The fact is that no one monitors the promoted sites. It means that there is no way to know the source of these links and if they are safe. MyAppStash.com does not take any responsibility over the contents of the promoted sites. You may be directed to malicious site which belongs to cyber criminals and will infect you with malware. The very real possibility of infection and the fact that MyAppStash.com does nothing to protect you from it, makes it a very unreliable and untrustworthy browser plug-in. We suggest you to delete MyAppStash.com.
This program is distributed primarily through freeware. It enters your computer bundled with free of charge software from unreliable sites. To prevent infiltration is very easy. The user needs to read through ‘End User License Agreement’ and deselect boxes that inform about additional programs. Unfortunately, the absolute majority do not read this agreement thus leaving the installation process unattended. This is the perfect opportunity for the unwanted program to get inside your computer. The entrance is legal and the creators can truthfully claim that they informed you about the fact that MyAppStash.com travels with a program you downloaded. The fact that the user does not monitor what additional applications he gets within the downloaded package is not their problem.
