Do you know what TermTrident is?
TermTrident promises to make your online searching and translating a lot easier, but that is all there is to this application. It is just as empty as its promises. We are forced to classify TermTrident as an adware program because the application simply promotes commercial content in order to generate financial profit for its developers. There is nothing illegal about it, but such applications never review the third-party content that is promoted in their ads, so in the worst case scenario you might be redirected to corrupted websites that distribute malware or leak personal information for online marketing purposes.
To put it simply, you have to remove TermTrident from your computer as soon as possible and while you are at it, you should take care of all the other unwanted applications as well. Why are we so sure you have some? Simple, this adware program cannot be downloaded from its official website. Termtrident.com only that this application is a “utility that makes searching and translating information you find online easy.” The page does not have a direct download link, so we are left to conclude that TermTrident spreads in software packages. This assumption is confirmed by our research specialists who say this application usually gets distributed via the Amonetize installer.
If you have dealt with adware before, you will recognize this third-party installer immediately, because it also spreads around the Multiplug adware. This would also mean that there is a possibility that you have a Multiplug adware program on your system as well. As far as our research is concerned, it shows that TermTrident usually gets installed on target systems along with PicColor, VuuPC, PriceLess, and similar unwanted applications. We would also like to point out that TermTrident is not a malicious computer infection. You might as well think so because you definitively did not plan on having this application installed, but if it weren’t for your permission the program, or the software package it came with, would not have been set up on your PC.TermTrident screenshot
