How to remove (uninstall) iBuddy

iBuddy is among the sort of dangerous programs that are called adware and shows you numerous unwanted links, pop-ups and advertising banners, as well as clogs your machine with suspicious programs. It infects your system and modifies the settings of the browser so that you just can't surf the web conveniently. On this page, you will find the complete directions on iBuddy uninstallation from your PC and the well-known browsers.


iBuddy virus is a thing that you completely do not want to find on your hard drive. Anybody could accept this, but we have a thing to tell you. Had someone told you that except showing links, the advertising program has other features, that can be switched on in a blink of an eye? iBuddy is able to fulfill all types of unwanted actions from the customer’s computer, snitch credentials, spy on a customer, etc. We don’t state that it performs now, but it easily can. It's just an undesired utility within your device, able to set up tasks and fulfill commands. The best choice is to eliminate iBuddy immediately since every hour that it functions in the OS could be the fatal one for it. On our page, we will tell you how iBuddy works, which purposes it follows, and how you can delete it.


What is iBuddy

iBuddy is the tool that you shouldn't disregard. It’s not hazardous independently, but if it’s inside the computer, you should be highly alert about your behavior on the Internet. Each website you attend and every ad you click is highly dangerous if there is iBuddy in the system. The Net isn’t a secure place even if the PC is totally clean, yet with adware, it all becomes worse. Adware delivers you banners, but the web-criminals do not have goods to sell, and they don't care whether you want purchase any stuff or not. They're not bothered about how much time will you spend on the site to which you got redirected – the mere thing they want from you is your click. If you surf the Web on a daily basis – scammers receive about from ten to fifteen successful clicks from you daily. Any of these clicks is either a peril to download more adware, or a cent passed to scammers’ pockets from major advertisers.

We know two dangerous types of activity that swindlers can perform through a functioning advertising tool, of iBuddy kind. While they’re displaying ads, they do not simply promote some web pages. There are some hidden features, and we will explain them to you:

  • Firstly – swindlers show pop-ups. If anyone has an ugly web page which Bing declined to advertise for some reason – hackers will satisfy his needs. It's easy for them to redirect 200-300 customers to it each day. Even if they don't use it for long or purchase anything, the visit calculator will show some numbers.
  • Fraudsters can advertise other unwanted programs. It’s way worse than to visit the strange pop-ups in your browser. Any pop-up is a direct download of a virus or a trashy tool that is going to spend months on your PC, consuming free disc space and CPU power, launching when the system starts and doing nothing. You can even get ransomware through this manner, so you must not underestimate the danger of iBuddy.

Now you understand that any advertising program shouldn't be ignored – it’s a virus that needs to be neutralized. In case you think for too long – you will be rewarded with the sulky, retarded system which requires a long time to do simple things.

How to protect the computer

As a typical adware, this one has its habits and follows them strictly, as each other adware. It is being delivered with the help of the bundled installation or just from a scammers' site, so to outthink it you need to remember this advice:

  • If you want to download an unpaid tool – download it exclusively from its main website, and not from the file-sharing websites.
  • You shouldn't use software whose task is unclear to you.
  • Under any circumstances, do not ignore any information which appear through the installation of an unpaid utility without knowing what’s in there.
  • Keep your AV-tool working and properly updated. It might save lots of your time and energy.
  • If you've abruptly received a proposal to download something - decline it without thinking. Especially if the offer was a pop-up window that emerged in the browser.

These hints are easy to abide but very effective. You will not face iBuddy ever again if you abide them.
