Where does NetMeterX come from?

Same as many other PUPs, NetMeterX might travel with bundled setup files shared on sites offering pirated installers, via suspicious pop-up ads, and so on. Thus, our researchers at say users should stay away from untrustworthy file sharing web pages and install software only when they are sure it is one hundred percent harmless and cannot introduce you to potentially dangerous content. If you wonder how you can identify possible threats, we would recommend paying attention to the software’s developers as the company has to be reputable. Besides, users should read expert and user reviews to gain an impression. However, do not forget all reviews can be fake, so if it sounds too good to be true or, for example, all user reviews say the tool is “amazing,” you should be extra cautious and investigate the chosen tool even more carefully. It might sound complicated, but a clean and threats-free system should be a good reward for all your efforts.

How does NetMeterX work?

NetMeterX is a network monitor, which means the application was designed to monitor downloaded/uploaded data. It has a small window, and its display is not complicated, but even so, we would not recommend using it. Our researchers discovered the PUP could be showing unreliable advertising content, for example, pop-ups, banners, sponsored links, and other ads coming from unknown third-party web pages. Naturally, the ads may not be harmful, but given they could come from different third parties, it is possible some of them could contain links to sites offering similar PUPs, asking to submit private data for fake lotteries/surveys, sites containing malware, etc. As the tool does not have a lot of functions and you could easily replace it with more reputable tools, we do not think it is worth taking any risks. Provided, you do not want to risk coming across any suspicious content the Pup’s ads could promote, we would advise you to remove NetMeterX.
