How to uninstall VoyageClick adware

VoyageClick may be advertised as a useful extension but is actually adware. The adware is identical to ManagerTemplate, StandartSync, ObsessionScript, and VantageReservation because they all come from the same adware family. Although it’s not a malicious infection, it will use deceptive installation methods, spam you with advertisements, alter your browser’s settings without your knowledge, and track your browsing. Although the adware shouldn’t cause any immediate damage to your computer, the advertisements it shows may expose you to unwanted software and other potentially malicious content. The faster you delete VoyageClick adware from your Mac, the quicker you may resume normal browsing without ad interruptions every few seconds.

 

VoyageClick adware

 

If adware is installed on your Mac, it will continuously bombard you with numerous different types of advertisements. Even if this behavior is very annoying, it at least makes it clear that some kind of infection is present on your Mac. The VoyageClick adware will continuously bombard you with pop-ups and banners in addition to standard ads. Furthermore, you can be redirected to dubious websites that promote malicious content. We recommend against interacting with any ads while adware is installed because doing so can expose you to malicious content. Tech-support scams, bogus giveaways, and misleading virus alerts are frequently displayed by adware. You may encounter fake notifications stating that you need to download the offered tool to remove a virus from your computer. Similar notifications may instruct you to call the displayed number to receive technical support. Ignore these warnings because they are always fake. It should be mentioned that this adware will also make unwanted changes to your browser’s settings. The default search engine, new tabs, and your homepage will all be changed. You will be more easily redirected to sponsored websites because of these modifications.

You should also know that VoyageClick adware will track your browsing and collect certain information. Your search queries, the websites you visit, your IP address, and other information will be collected by the adware. Additionally, this information would be shared with third parties. The data collection methods used by VoyageClick adware should not be tolerated, even if no personal information is collected. VoyageClick is adware, therefore the sooner you remove it from your Mac, the better. The simplest way is to use antivirus software.

How does adware install?

Adware and browser hijackers are usually installed via software bundling, which means such infections are bundled with free software as extra offers. Unless users specifically deselect them, these other offers are allowed to install automatically alongside the program. But because they are initially concealed, many users end up allowing these unwanted installations because they’re not even aware that something has been attached. Obviously, this is a pretty controversial installation method, which is why many anti-virus programs frequently flag programs that use it as potential risks.

Most free programs come with extra offers, especially if you download them from unreliable sites. Thus, it’s crucial that you install freeware correctly unless you want your Mac to be filled with garbage programs that cause issues. Pay attention to the process, and when given the option, select Advanced (Custom) options. The installation window will recommend using Default settings, but those settings will conceal all offers, allowing all of them to install alongside. Unlike Default settings, the Advanced settings will display every offer and give you the choice to deselect every one of them. Simply deselect all of the boxes of the offers. It should be noted that although some of the offers may appear useful at first, it is not a good idea to let any offers install. No genuine program that tries to install without your consent should be tolerated.

Infections like adware are also hidden in fake virus/update alerts. You can come across these alerts when browsing certain high-risk websites. For example, sites that have pornographic and/or pirated content often expose users to these fake alerts. Downloading the offered programs/supposed updates could result in serious malware infections.

It’s also possible that you downloaded the program yourself because you thought it would be useful. If that is the case, you need to do more extensive research before installing programs in the future. A simple search with Google or another search engine can help decide whether a program is safe to download/install.
