Do you know what BuyFast is?
BuyFast is an adware application that has been created to generate financial profit for its developers. The program employs the pay-per-click system to help its creators make money, but it also needs to redirect multiple users to third-party websites for that. Being redirected is highly annoying, and it also could prove to be dangerous, so, to protect yourself from various security issues, you should remove BuyFast at once. It is not complicated to delete BuyFast on your own. You can accomplish that by following our manual removal instructions below.
BuyFast does not surprise us at all because the application is part of the Multiplug family. Adware applications from this group are based on the JustPlugit engine, and they are released almost daily. The most recent ones include DollarSaver, OfferSoft, BuyAndBrowse, SpaceCouponApp, and many others. These applications do not differ much from each other, so we can firmly say that BuyFast is just another clone of the previously released programs.
Consequently, it is possible to say how BuyFast enters your computer, because the application employs the same distribution methods as all the other members of this group. To put it simply, you cannot download BuyFast directly from its website, because there is none. The application enters your system bundled with other potentially unwanted programs via a third-party installer. It is known that the InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers are responsible for distributing BuyFast and similar adware around the web, but it is important to note that users initiate the download process THEMSELVES. These third-party installers are often hosted in torrent and various p2p websites. Such websites are known to have a lot of fake download buttons. Clicking any of those buttons eventually leads to adware and even malware infections because this is EXACTLY where the third-party installers are hidden.
Either way, once BuyFast manages to enter your system, it makes use of tracking cookies to check what you search for online and what online stores you frequent. When the adware application has enough data collected, it starts displaying commercial advertisements. BuyFast ads may look like discount offers that can help you purchase something at a lower price, but that is a highly deceitful impression!
BuyFast ads might as well be embedded with corrupted links that redirect unsuspecting users to web pages that are part of a malware distribution network. Whatever it might be, you have to avoid any potential threats at all costs, so you should remove BuyFast right now.
After manual removal, do not forget to run a full system scan with a legitimate computer security application, because you need to terminate all the adware helpers and other pieces of software that might be related to BuyFast.
