Collected information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, geographic location, browsing information (visited sites, viewed pages, search queries, browsing history, cache, web beacons, saved passwords, etc.), mouse/keyboard inputs (to record, for instance, credit card details), and so on.
This gathered information is sent to the developers' servers and then shared with third parties.
Download apps supposedly ease the download process, however, they offer installation of third party applications with the chosen software.
Furthermore, some advertisements are opened in new Internet browser tabs/windows.
Ads displayed by DNS Unlocker (banner, pop-up, targeted video, coupon, offers to install other software, etc.) can cause high-risk computer infections, and therefore, you should never click unrecognised/suspicious advertisements.
There is a high probability that this collected data will be shared with cyber criminals, thereby causing serious privacy issues or even identity theft.
For these reasons, adware-type applications such DNS Unlocker should be uninstalled from your system immediately. Moreover, there are hundreds of other PUPs that share similarities with this deceptive application including Price Fountain, Baseline TV Media Manager, thirteen degrees, and Application Nation.
The developers employ a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' to distribute DNS Unlocker, and therefore, this type of app is often bundled with free software downloadable on freeware download websites.Many users do not pay close enough attention when downloading and installing programs - cyber criminals use this oversight to their benefit and to generate revenue.DNS Unlocker infiltrates popular Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) and generates intrusive online advertisements.Adware-type applications (including DNS Unlocker) deliver adverts using a virtual layer, which displays third party content on any websites visited.
These PUPs offer useful features, however, they are developed simply to generate revenue by displaying ads and sharing collected data - they provide no real value to the user.Freeware download websites (such as downloads.com, softonic.com, soft32.com, etc.) encourage users to use small download programs (called 'installers', 'download managers', 'download tools', 'download clients', and so on) to download the chosen software.
