Do you know what ClickTheApp is?
ClickTheApp is a typical sign of the creativity of ad-supported program developers who like to use the JustPlugIt cross-browser engine to create newer money makers for themselves. Because one thing is sure: They are the only ones to benefit from such an application. And that is made possible by the clicks users make on the third-party advertisements it keeps displaying while they are browsing the web. Practically, when you click on such an ad, you make money for potential criminals. Do you really want to support such people in making easy? We do not advise you to click on any of these ads; in fact, we advise you to delete ClickTheApp from your computer before you get introduced to unreliable websites and dangerous content.
This adware is no different from any other from the so-called Multiplug family. Its only goal is to make you click on as many ads as possible since the creators get paid by your clicks. That is why ClickTheApp can also gather certain data about your browsing habits so that targeted ads can be sent to your screen. People are more inclined to click on ads that they feel some connection to. This is simple psychology. It is even possible that you do not even realize and you already click on one that advertises some special offer to you. Reflex is a tricky thing, and it surely does not end well, if you happen to click on a compromised ad. Yes, it is possible. Certain ads may lead to unreliable or infectious websites. Landing on such sites can only make things worse for you. More malware infections on-board and revealing personal details might be one click away if you are not careful enough. Prevent these from happening by removing ClickTheApp ASAP.

It is no mystery, and no, you are not crazy and did not forget about visiting its official website and downloading it. This adware has no such thing at all – a promotional website, that is. ClickTheApp is spread in third-party installers instead. However, these installers may hold a whole pack of malware programs. If you download such a package, it is possible that you will find adware apps, browser hijackers, and other infections in the same bundle.
