What is EasyHotspot?

If you want to share your internet connection through your computer, we do not recommend that you use EasyHotspot. This is actually not the first desktop application that has emerged lately offering Internet sharing capability. However, our malware specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have classified it as an ad-supported program due to its ability to show third-party advertisements. As a matter of fact, this adware’s abilities stop right there. It seems that this program cannot actually make a WiFi hotspot out of your computer, but, instead, it may disrupt you with annoying advertisements. Unfortunately, these ads can be risky to click on as even cyber criminals can pose as third parties and can trick you with their commercials. You should delete EasyHotspot if you do not want to find out what might happen if you click on a corrupt ad. It is quite possible that you do not even remember installing this application because it may have come in a free software bundle together with other malicious software installers.

Where does EasyHotspot come from?

Supposedly this application is published by a company called Asia Software Tools; however, our researchers have found that this adware is very similar to a previously emerged program called WizzWifiHotSpot by Wizzlabs. At first sight it seems that these are two separate companies, but there are many things almost identical in these two programs to call it a coincidence. This adware has a promotional website at easyhotspot.asiasoftwaretools.com. You can only find some basic information about this application there, including the legal documents, and, of course, you can also download this adware. As a matter of fact, even the websites of these two applications are quite similar. But research and reports show that this adware is mainly spread over the web in an alternative way called software bundling.

This is a rather questionable distribution method since schemers can pack several malware installers together with a legitimate free program. These infected bundles usually use misleading installers to make sure that most or all of the content will get installed in one go. It is quite easy to end up with such a bundle if you happen to land on unfamiliar and unreliable websites that are full of third-party advertising. These sites are usually torrent and shareware sites. So when you are looking for a new tool to download, you may click on the wrong search result and land on a suspicious or downright malicious website. Nowadays there are plenty of fake file-sharing websites since there is a great demand for free music, movies, and programs as well. Obviously, cyber criminals see it as a sea of opportunities to fish in. Therefore, they promote their vicious packages through these unreliable websites. One wrong click can allow a whole bunch of threats onto your system. In this case, you need to run a malware scanner to detect all possibly harmful programs right after you delete EasyHotspot. Otherwise, your computer will not be secure.

What does EasyHotspot do?

This application should enable you to share your Internet connection with your friends and family, but our researchers claim that it just does not do that. In fact, this adware is rather suspicious since it takes several minutes for it to actually start up. God knows what it really does during that time; but we are sure that it is nothing beneficial. It is even more annoying when you restart your computer because this adware starts automatically with Windows; however, explorer.exe, the main system process, only starts up after this useless program finishes loading. It is possible that this adware spies on you and collects information about your online activities. This information can then be shared with third parties. This would normally be a good thing actually, i.e., to have tailored advertisements and web content according to your preferences and needs. However, this is exactly what crooks can exploit and trick you into clicking on their relevant-looking ads and thus lure you onto their malicious pages. Believe us when we say that it never ends well for the unsuspecting user to end up on a website run by cyber criminals. Obviously, there are no huge red signs revealing that you are viewing malevolent content. Therefore, it is quite easy to be fooled into thinking that you are actually, for example, on a decent online shop site. If you do not want to lose your money or infect your computer with more threats, you should not hesitate to remove EasyHotspot.

We have included step-by-step instructions below this article so that you can eliminate this adware even if you are not an expert.
