Gem Grab Removal Guide

Do you know what Gem Grab is?

Gem Grab is the newest addition to a long lineage of adware applications that strive to make your browsing sessions just a bit more frustrating by showing vast amounts of unasked-for advertisements. We suggest that you remove Gem Grab, not only because the ads are annoying, but also because the application promotes unreliable content and might even gather information about you for commercial purposes. Obviously this program has no good traits that could save it from being eradicated. So, if you have this program, then you are probably looking for more information, which we are happy to provide. We have also included a manual removal guide just in case some of you do not know how to uninstall it.

The software developer that created Gem Grab is unknown. However, we were able to connect this application to several other adware applications that were obviously created by the same people. Programs such as Blazer Deals, Deals Avenue, Glass Bottle, and Gravity Space work exactly like Gem Grab. This particular program has a website at, which has a certain design style that, apart from the Blazer Deals website, differs from the rest of the pack. None of the aforementioned applications are disseminated using their dedicated websites, because no one would intentionally download them. Therefore, the developers must resort to other means, such as software bundling. So it is more than likely that Gem Grab will at some point be found bundled with legitimate applications that are featured on shareware websites.Gem Grab Removal GuideGem Grab screenshot

Now let us discuss how this application actually works and why it is malicious. The application has been set to display various forms of ads that include but are not limited to banners, video ads, in-text ads, and links that redirect to third-party websites. We deem the ads unreliable, because they might be misleading. Indeed, misleading ads might trick you into installing shady software, such as fake applications that do not do anything but pose as something useful. Such applications might demand that you purchase a license key for it to clean your computer of malware or fix registry errors, while in fact doing nothing.

Gem Grab’s End User License Agreement states that the developers are neither responsible for nor affiliated with any third-party advertisements. Yet they promote the advertisements, which is nothing short of hypocrisy. Furthermore, the application has the ability to collect information about you. The information that is collected automatically is non-personal in nature. The company may use web cookies, Flash cookies, pixels, beacons, and so on. These technologies may be used to collect information regarding the webpages and advertisements that you view, search queries, links you have clicked on, and services and products you have purchased, among other things.

As you can see, Gem Grab has quite a few abilities you did not know of. Its sole purpose is to display advertisements and collect information about you. Given that the ads are supplied by largely unknown entities makes it all the more unreliable, and the fact the developers gather information about you should not be ignored. So we encourage you to take action and remove Gem Grab right now using our manual removal guide. Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry.

In non-techie terms:

Gem Grab is a highly unreliable and above all useless adware application that you should remove, because it might cause you all sorts of mischief that might not end well. The application displays annoying advertisements that are apt to promote unreliable software. In addition, Gem Grab collects information about you, an activity which should not be tolerated even though the information is not personally identifiable.
