What is SquareTrace?

If you have ever come across an adware application developed by SuperWeb LLC then SquareTrace shouldn’t surprise you one bit. SuperWeb is known for numerous unreliable applications that pose as useful tools to unwary users. Therefore, we recommend that you remove it. It is hardly surprising that the applications form this company serve only to financially benefit the company itself and offer no real added value to the end-user. Its developers fail to review and endorse the advertisements it promotes. Thus, the only sensible step would be to simply remove the adware and save yourself the trouble of dealing with more dangerous infections.test 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does SquareTrace come from?

Super Web LLC is part of the Yontoo/Sambreel group that develops adware applications. Like all of its clones, SquareTrace has its own dedicated promotional website called Squaretrace.info. However, you cannot download it from its website, and it’s a good thing too. It is known to be distributed as a browser extension using third-party software. This means that the adware is bundled with legitimate software, which can be downloaded from most major freeware distribution websites. We encourage you to remove it in order to prevent it from conducting its malicious activities.

What does SquareTrace do?

As mentioned, SquareTrace has dozens of clones which include Ace Race, Esuack, Pathmaxx, and many more. Needless to say, you should remove all its clones if your PC is infected with more than one. Regardless, it has been designed to modify a user’s typical search behavior as well as display context, pop-ups, coupons, and so on. SquareTrace has one main purpose and that is to generate web traffic for its sponsors. You must be cautious not to install the plug-in when installing other software. The browser extension is not dangerous on its own, but the content promoted on it certainly could be.

The advertisements displayed via the extension can pose a serious threat. SquareTrace is known to record clicks, browsing history, browser settings, search terms and other information. It monitors your behavior and allows third parties and its developers to make changes to their advertising campaigns. The browser extension displays multiple ads, making it very difficult to avoid clicking them. Therefore you should not, under any circumstances click an ad as they can expose your computer to other malicious software.
