What is Appleconnect.co

Appleconnect.co is a website that promotes Teamviewer program for MAC. But if you check the website on virustotal, you can see that two antiviruses are finding its suspicious: information about appleconnect infection. If you want to remove Appleconnect.co and other tools similar to it, you'd better realize their aim and the principles of their work. Their precise purpose is to display advertising materials, and by displaying them to you and forcing you to click them, adware creates action on the sites it tries to "boost". Many of the links adware provides are totally fake and are developed to lure a customer into visiting the webpage, but some of them offer goods. It’s an overstatement to state that they're goods, actually, as they’re rather “bads” if you catch our drift. The thing with Appleconnect.co’s ads is that they aren't real. If a webpage is promoted via an advertising utility, it means that it can't use any legitimate service. It leads us to a conclusion that the service is either of low quality or inappropriate sort. Take a guess, how would swindlers force users to purchase something like that? Right, by an irritating advertisement, i.e., making dozens of banners appear on customers’ monitors until they follow a single one.
