Do you know what WorkatHomeStar is?
WorkatHomeStar is a program that users tend to download on their systems because it promises to enable them to earn some extra money by working from home. We are sure that there are thousands of users who wish to make extra money, so it is not surprising for us at all that WorkatHomeStar is quite a popular application these days. Of course, it does not mean that this application is harmless. To be honest, people who download and install this application are at a great risk of infecting their systems with malicious software (malware). If you do not want to become another victim of malicious software, you should not download this program. Of course, not all the people download and install this program on their computers consciously. In fact, we do not really care whether you have downloaded this program yourself or it has sneaked onto your PC without permission because we still suggest users deleting this adware if they have found it installed. We will describe this program first and then we will inform you how you can erase it.
Even though the application and its official website might seem to be decent at first glance, our team of specialists has immediately suspected that WorkatHomeStar is not a 100% trustworthy program because its official website is covered with all kinds of commercial advertisements. It seems that the owner of the website and the program itself expects that users will click on them. Some specialists say that it is very likely because third-party websites might pay the owner of WorkatHomeStar for increasing the traffic rate. We believe that this adware shows various deals, offers, and surveys because it gets money for doing that too. To be honest, we believe that it is the primary aim of WorkatHomeStar because it does not even have an interface and only loads third-party websites. In other words, this software is not as beneficial as it claims to be. Of course, you are the one who can decide what to do with it.WorkatHomeStar screenshot

As WorkatHomeStar is an ad-supported program, we are sure that it will cause redirections to third-party websites and will display offers and deals. Unfortunately, these are not the only activities this program is going to perform. Our guys have tested this program in their lab and found that it is also going to record automatically details about users and their activities on the web. Of course, WorkatHomeStar is mainly interested in users’ browsing data because it needs to know what users are interested in to be able to provide them with appealing deals and commercial advertisements. If you do not like that WorkatHomeStar tracks you and collects information about you, you can always put an end to this. The sooner you do that, the better because adware programs are also known to be able to violate the privacy quickly.
