Do you know what Happy Cloud is?
No matter how cute Happy Cloud sounds as an application name, it is still, in reality, a worthless piece of adware. The latest version of Google Chrome already blocks this app, which in itself makes it suspicious. If you are infected with this adware, it is more than likely that you have additional threats on your system. Having one adware program on your computer is more than enough to present you with potentially dangerous third-party contents. However, having a bunch of malware applications might have catastrophic results with regard to your virtual security, including your privacy. That is why we think it is essential to know why and how you can remove Happy Cloud from your PC.
Happy Cloud belongs to the SuperWeb family of useless adware applications that includes Walermis, Qwebber, and Dig Deep, which are also recent members. They are not only very similar in function, but their websites are also identical. Visiting them feels like being on a copy+paste site with a name and label change. The official website for Happy Cloud can be found at happycloudsite.com, but the application is not available for download. Instead, this adware uses freeware bundles to spread over the net. Keep in mind that not every software bundle can be trusted. Some of them can include malicious software along with legitimate free software. If you end up downloading such a bundle, there is a good chance that you have several security issues at the same time. Not addressing those may result in further infections or privacy breaches. That is why it is so important to scan your system using a reliable online scanner after deleting Happy Cloud.Happy Cloud screenshot

This adware is not unique in any way. It simply does what other ad-supported programs do: It displays third-party advertisements. While these can be rather annoying and disruptive, they might also introduce you to malicious content. You may think that it is easy to avoid clicking on these ads, but you need to know that schemers might exploit this adware and display their own ads in order to take you to websites that are operated by them. They may use information gathered by this adware program about your online activities to figure out what types or brands of products you may be interested in to buy. They are very resourceful when it comes to making easy money by scamming people; so, obviously, there are plenty of ways they can harm you or your computer if you land on their sites. We advise you to stay away from any of these ads, but, most importantly, make sure you free your system of Happy Cloud.
