Do you know what Kissanime is?
Kissanime refers to both a popular Anime streaming website (Kissanime.co) and an ad-supported program that can make your browsing experience a misery. Our researchers say that it could be a mistake to engage with either of them, namely, the advertisements and promoted pages these may show you while you try peacefully surf the net. Unfortunately, seeing such ads in your browsers may also indicate that there are other malware infections on board since adware programs like this rarely travel the web alone. Since you may be facing multiple system security threats right now, we advise you to remove Kissanime right away. Please continue reading our full report on the potential risks this adware and this website may put your system at.
It is quite possible that you do not even want to visit Kissanime.co, yet you find yourself on this website. This is possible when you click on the wrong content on the wrong webpage. Redirection is one of the most widely used tricks cyber criminals use to forward unsuspecting users to malicious or promoted questionable pages. Since this page can expose you to lots of ads that may pose a threat to your computer, we suggest that you close your browser window to delete Kissanime as soon as you find yourself there. If you are lucky, your computer is not infected and you simply got redirected there from another suspicious site.
The worse case scenario is when you infect your PC with this adware via a freeware bundle. Bundling is a deceptive method to infect unsuspecting computer users with several potential and malicious threats in one single go. Such a software package can be promoted by shady torrent and shareware pages, adware programs hiding on your computer, and websites that tend to display corrupt third-party contents (online gaming, gambling, video streaming, and porn). It is essential to mention that usually you do have an option to opt out of installing certain elements in a bundle. But you need to read the license agreement carefully to learn about possible browser setting changes and additional tools installed. Or, you need to choose the advanced installation option so that the installer screens may reveal the content of the package and you can deselect whatever you want. In any case, if you are annoyed by a great number of third-party ads, we recommend that after you delete Kissanime, you also scan your computer with a trustworthy malware scanner.
This questionable website seems to be quite popular among Anime fans since they can watch their favorite shows online. However, this is not that simple since this website is full of flashing banner and pop-up advertisements, and it also keeps redirecting you to potentially harmful third-party promoted sites whenever you click on content on this site. This is rather annoying, to say the least. And, at the same time, you could put your system security at risk, too. This website also promotes other similar pages like KimCartoon and SolarMovie. We believe that you should not hesitate to remove Kissanime from your computer the moment you see it in your browser.
When it comes to the adware program with the same name, it is also important that you do not try to engage with any third-party ad it may show you. These ads cannot be trusted at best. If you happen to click on the wrong ad, you could end up on fake or malicious websites where cyber crooks may try to scam you out of your money. But you can also easily drop a whole bundle of malicious threats onto your machine. Even though a lot of times these ads may look legitimate and harmless, we advise you to remove Kissanime as soon as possible.
There are two things we recommend if you would like to eliminate this annoying threat. First, it is advisable to scan through your installed programs list in Control Panel to see if there is any suspicious application you may have installed lately. Then, you may also want to reset your browsers to get rid of all browser-related infections. If you are ready to move on this adware and all other threats, please use our instructions below this article to guide you. Since you may not be able to avoid the next attack unless you change your browsing habits, we suggest that you install a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, as soon as possible.

In non-techie terms:
Kissanime is an ad-supported program that can promote potentially unreliable third parties and litter your computer screen with advertisements. It may also promote the well-known Anime website, Kissanime.co. This website is also filled with questionable advertising; practically, all your clicks on this site trigger a new tab page to open, which is not only annoying and distracting but can also be potentially harmful.

Therefore, we suggest that you remove Kissanime immediately from your PC. If you would like to protect your computer from future attacks, it may be time to employ a reliable anti-malware program.
