Do you know what Royal Raid is?
Royal Raid has a motto that says “Join the royal family and experience the web as it should be seen.” If you imagine that the Internet should be filled with irritating pop-ups with commercial ads, coupons, surveys, links, and other suspicious content, then you might enjoy Royal Raid. However, we doubt that any user would like their browsing being disturbed by an adware application that does nothing else, besides showing third-party ads. If you are tired of endless ads, you can delete the application from your system with a removal guide that you will find at the end of the article. Also, you should know that such programs are spread in a way that some users might install them unknowingly. If you continue reading the article, we will explain it in more detail.
Our researchers do not think that users could have downloaded the application’s installer on their own. Mainly, because the official adware’s site (royalraid.net) does not have a download button or a link from where it could be obtained. Moreover, usually adware applications are spread through bundled downloads. Thus, you may have downloaded a bundled installer from an unreliable file-sharing website. As you launched it, Royal Raid could have appeared as additional software that you can choose to install together or deselect. Not many users read through all installation wizard’s steps, so you may have simply overlooked it.
The adware is compatible with the Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers, so after the installation process, it should add extensions on these applications. As you surf the Internet, the program will show you advertisements, coupons, offers, and similar content. These ads might appear as: “banner and video ads, in-text ads and links, web browsing-related ads ...search and full page ads.” All of this will come from third-party sites, and Royal Raid creators do not take any responsibility if you get any harm while interacting with such web pages. That is why it is important to know that third-party sites come with many risks. For instance, some of them could promote fake products or unreliable software, such as Royal Raid itself, browser hijackers, etc.Royal Raid screenshot
