Therefore, we suggest that you remove WebWatch. As you probably know, adware applications are undesirable, because they are annoying, and promote ads that install more adware and other malware, and can even slow down your computer and in some cases grind it to halt before the system crashes.

So if you disapprove of the above mentioned “features,” then you ought to remove this program at your earliest convenience.

WebWatch has been released by a mysterious software developer that has recently unleashed malicious programs such as Plants Vs Zombies, Email Tracker, and others. Even though the aforementioned applications including WebWatch appear to be owned by different companies, the physical email box is located at the same address The Valley, St. George, BB19000, Barbados. This developer always makes sure to create a dedicated download website to distribute their programs.

WebWatch’s website makes the bold statement that “You are not secure. Nobody is!” The company’s fake philosophy suggests that watching is the first step to a greater level of security. So they claim that you will be safer by observing the "mysterious forces" that keep tabs on you. There is no mention of browser cookies or spyware anywhere on their website, which makes it unclear, who and how is supposed to track you? Tests have proven that this application does not work and only serves the interests of its developers by displaying third-party advertisements which make them money. You on the other hand will have to deal with the inconvenience of viewing the ads that come in the form of banners, coupons, pop-ups, pop-unders, in-texts, videos, and so on.

Ironically, WebWatch has been set up to gather information about you which is used for advertising and marketing purposes. It Privacy Policy states that it gathers information, such as the contents of your browser’s URL history, your IP address, your browser type, your operating system, web pages you view, links you click, and so on. The developers use browser cookies web beacons and other means of data collect to acquire information when you visit their website. If that is not tracking then we do not know what is.

If you were unfortunate to download and install this application, then we suggest that you delete it as soon as possible. It is true that cyber security is very important, but allowing malicious applications to enter your computer does not contribute to it. Displaying unreliable ads and keeping tabs on your browsing activities is a good enough reason to remove this application, and we very much encourage it, so if you are ready – take action.
