If you stumble upon an online shopping website ad offering huge discounts and click it, you might be in for an unpleasant surprise. The shopping website might turn out to be fake. You might purchase an item, but never receive it, because the website was made by cyber criminals.

IncreaseApp is based on the infamous JustPlugIt engine, used exclusively for adware applications. The engine is made by a company called JustPlug.it. Funny enough, it is also the company’s name, so you can visit the website if you so desire. The company has a reputation for working with shady advertisers. Therefore, we deem all of its applications malicious and encourage users to remove them. The developer has also released several other infections called RoyalCoupon, SpaceOffers, KingCoupon, and various others.
Like most JustPlugit-based adware, IncreaseApp is distributed via torrent websites. But the adware is not put in the content itself. Some torrent websites feature a fake download button, which means that you might download IncreaseApp accidentally, while thinking that you are downloading what you have intended. It is also worth mentioning that it can be bundled with other malicious applications that may pose an even greater threat to your computer's security and your personal identity.
All in all, IncreaseApp is a plain old JustPlugit-based adware application that displays unreliable, often dangerous third-party advertisements. It is likely that some ads are fake and that you might be tricked and hurt financially as a result. It is also likely that the ads might redirect you to malware infested websites that can compromise your computer's security.
