So removing it is something you ought to consider because it will affect your overall browsing experience in a negative way. Our malware analysts have tested this program’s sample and have come to the conclusion that it is an ad-supported program whose only purpose is to make money for its developers. As a consequence, you will be subjected to all kinds of shady advertisements that you should avoid clicking because you cannot know what will happen if you do that. Hence, our researchers say that this application is bound to promote malicious software and websites. In addition to that, it may collect some non-personal information about you for tailoring the ads. Please continue reading to know more.test

How does BillBreak work?

The way this application works is very simple. It comes as a browser extension for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It will generate commercial advertisements in the form of banners, videos, pop-ups, coupons, and a few others. The ads can be generated on almost every website you visit including your search engine, so they will undoubtedly annoy you. However, our biggest concern is that the promoted content comes from all kinds of shady third parties that change constantly. Therefore, you cannot determine which ads are safe and which should be avoided, because BillBreak's developers do not care about you and your computer’s security, all they want is to get paid.

For this reason, this application will gather certain information about you to tailor the ads according to your browsing preferences. The information it can collect includes your Internet Service Provider (ISP,) Internet Protocol (IP) address, browsing and search history, and possibly some other bits of information. It may not look like much, but this information helps a great deal. For example, the aforementioned information will help advertisers determine your location. Of course, content selection based on region is performed automatically, but the fact BillBreak’s ads can be region-specific leads us to believe that it is being distributed all across the globe.

Where does BillBreak originate from?

Our security analysts have found that BillBreak is yet another release by the infamous Injekt LLC. This company is one of the biggest adware developers out there, and it is responsible for creating hundreds of ad-supported programs. Some of its more recent releases include Bronze Aid, Discover Treasure, and Sonic Train. However, we were surprised to see that this newest release was digitally signed by an entity called Tech Missions. We have yet to find a software company by this same and we suspect that it may be fake, or it may be the name of one of Injekt’s clients for which it develops some applications. Whatever the case may be, it is evident that it comes from a unreliable source.

If you are wondering how you got this application, then we have the answer. It appears that BillBreak has a website at, but it serves only as a platform for hosting its legal documents. However, the site does not host this program’s installer. Thus, you could only have gotten this adware by visiting shady free software distributing websites that bundle legitimate applications with adware to make money. And, you probably got it accidentally since its install may be have been checked by default. So if you want to get rid of this application, please follow our instructions.
