TipMediaPlayer Removal Guide

Do you know what TipMediaPlayer is?

TipMediaPlayer is an adware application, and it means that the main reason it arrives on your computer is to promote something. The program says that with it installed on your PC, you can “Stream your favorite audio & video files!” However, the question is, do you really need a third-party application to stream it? Even if you use more than just one website for your daily streaming sessions, the website clearly has its own streaming service. The bottom line is that we recommend removing TipMediaPlayer from your system because this program is no useful in any way.

It is not like we do not know where this application is coming from. We have dealt with several programs from the same adware family before, and it seems like these applications are being created according to the same formula. For example, CareerPront and DatingDone have similar homepage design, and they even come bundled with the same application, so it is easy to see that these applications are related, and if computer security experts urged users to get rid of the previous two programs, it is clear that you should not tolerate TipMediaPlayer as well because you can never know where this application may lead you.

Of course, here you might argue that this adware program is very far from being a malicious computer infection, and you are right. However, a program does not have to be inherently malicious to cause specific security-related problems. One of the biggest issues with adware applications is that they are not safe. They do not check the third-party content they promote, and this allows malicious third parties to make use of the application’s promotion power. You may have installed this application hoping to get a useful tool for media streaming; unfortunately, the program brings you a lot of things you have not signed up for.

To give you a better idea, we can go through the program‘s Privacy Policy. It is available at tipmediaplayer.com/privacy. First, the program says that they will collect information about you. They may gather your “IP address and user agent (browser).” They may also collect additional anonymous data. Technically, the program means that whatever it collects cannot be traced back to you directly, but even if the information is not personally-identifiable, third parties might still use it to target commercial content at you, and you might feel compelled to click specific ads that seem related to your latest searches.

What’s more, the Privacy Policy states that “Your personal information is accessible by the Tip Media Player administrator(s). We may also share your data with interested third parties.” Once you read this line, this is where you have to stop and give it a thought. Remember that line about adware programs not reviewing third-party partners? This applies to TipMediaPlayer as well. You can never be sure what entities makes use of that data, and what unfamiliar websites you might be exposed to.

The bottom line is that TipMediaPlayer is not a reliable application. It does not provide you with any useful function, and it might even redirect you (albeit inadvertently) to potentially harmful websites. It would be for the best to delete this application from your system as soon as possible. The good news is that you can uninstall the program via Control Panel, and it does not require any rocket science knowledge. What’s more, removing the program via Control Panel does not leave any leftovers. It is especially important because some programs leave additional files that could leave to further issues.

Another thing you have to remember is the fact that such adware programs seldom travel alone. If you have TipMediaPlayer installed on your PC, the chances are that you also have potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, and other annoying pieces of software on-board. To deal with these applications, you need to delete them as well. However, if you find it hard to locate them, you can scan your PC with the SpyHunter free scanner. A full system scan will help you determine which programs must be deleted from your system. Also, do not hesitate to leave us a comment if you have further questions regarding this matter.
