Do you know what WindApp is?
Our research lab says that WindApp is a potentially unwanted program that usually arrives bundled with Bubble Dock adware. This program functions as an extension for web browser advertisements. This means that WindApp helps Bubble Dock display more commercial ads whenever you access the Internet. Although this program may not be an extreme computer security threat, you are encouraged to remove WindApp from your system because the application is very intrusive, and it may inadvertently leak your personally non-identifiable data to malevolent third parties.WindApp screenshot

What’s more, some security applications suspect WindApp to be a Trojan downloader. This shows that this application has the ability to connect to the Internet behind your back and to download and upload files. While it may not be much of a problem if WindApp employs this ability to display commercial ads, if the program gets exploited by cyber criminals, it might become part of a malware distribution network. Consequently, you could be infected with malware or experience a serious data theft. This only proves how important it is to remove WindApp and other potentially unwanted applications on time.
To put everything into account, WindApp might possibly install malware on your computer if it gets misused by malevolent third parties. Next, this program always starts automatically, and it is installed on your computer as a part of bundled download. Therefore, WindApp is a dead giveaway that you have unwanted software onboard. On top of that, this application displays unwanted commercial advertisements that can slow down your computer and not allow you to browse the Internet properly. All in all, it is clear that you must uninstall WindApp immediately.
When you remove WindApp from your computer, make sure you delete Bubble Dock as well. As mentioned above, there is a good chance that your computer is full of unwanted software.
