Do you know what ExpoDating is?
We have reviewed lots of other applications that are similar to ExpoDating, and we can tell you that finding your match is not the main purpose of the program. That is, if the software’s creators had such a purpose in their minds to begin with. This application is identical to DatingSmith, DatingShot, and other similar potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). We are almost a hundred percent sure that these applications, including ExpoDating, could have been created to generate advertising revenue. You may have already noticed that the software displays pop-ups with commercial ads, casino offers, surveys, etc. If you click these ads or purchase something from the sites that you are redirected to, the program’s creators should receive some amount of money. The only content related to dating this application displays is a web page called matchseniors.com, but you can visit it at any time without the PUP. If you realize already how useless the PUP is, you could slide below the text and remove it with the given instructions.
Some users may have downloaded the PUP from its official site, and if you did so too, you should check if there are no adware, browser hijackers, suspicious toolbars or other potentially unwanted programs on your system. Apparently, the official installer might have been bundled with such software. What's more, it appears that ExpoDating could travel with bundled installers too.
Nonetheless, there is also a third way the software’s creators could be using to spread the application. According to our researchers, some users might have a browser hijacker that shows modified search results. In this case, the PUP could appear as a download offer in your search results, or you could see an ad promoting it. In either way, the program’s appearance on your computer indicates that you do not protect your system enough.ExpoDating screenshot

ExpoDating should open a new browser window when you launch it. Unfortunately, it might show you ads and other similar content that could lead you to unreliable third-party web pages. It is best not to interact with such content because third-party sites could be dangerous to your system. For instance, there is a chance that the site could contain malicious software, such as Trojans, viruses, etc. Also, the ads could promote suspicious online stores that could gather information related to your banking account, or it could sell you fake products. Probably, matchseniors.com is the only site provided by the PUP that we can name as a legitimate and safe to use. The other third-party web pages might come from unknown sources, so you should be extra careful while entering them.
As you realize, the application is not the best choice if you want to protect your computer from various threats. If you were looking for an actual dating application, we advise you to remove the PUP and search for software that is developed by a well-known company, and that does not display third-party advertising. If you wish to get rid of ExpoDating, you can erase it through the Control Panel feature. The removal guide below will tell you how to open Control Panel if you are not familiar with this tool. However, if you want to remove the PUP and also scan your system for other possible threats, it would be easier to install an antimalware tool, because it could help you with both of these tasks.
Windows 8 & Windows 10
- Launch the RUN by pressing Win+R.
- Type Control Panel and press Enter.
- Click Uninstall a program.
- Locate the application, select it and press Uninstall.
Windows Vista & Windows 7
- Open the Start menu.
- Launch Control Panel and click Uninstall a program.
- Select the PUP and click Uninstall.
- Go to Start and open Control Panel.
- Select Add or Remove Programs.
- Mark ExpoDating and select Uninstall.
In non-techie terms:
ExpoDating is a worthless application that does not even have a single tool. It can only display a site that probably does not even belong to the PUP’s creators or show you suspicious ads. If you do not like the fact that the application displays irritating pop-ups with third-party ads, you should hesitate no more and delete it from your computer. The removal part is not that complicated, and you can use the instructions above for guidance. Moreover, you can erase the PUP with a legitimate security tool just the same.
