What is SkyEmoji?

SkyEmoji is a cleverly disguised adware program that we think you should remove. It masquerades as a Skype emoticon inserting application. It works as intended and should be compatible with the latest Skype versions. However, the program is bound to display a fair share of advertisements, because that is how its creators make money. The developers target users who like lots of bells and whistles on their computers. SkyEmoji features unique emoticons that are not normally displayed on Skype. But, nevertheless, they are there and you can use them without installing this low-grade adware program.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

How does SkyEmoji work?

The way this application works is pretty simple. You have to click its icon on the Taskbar and the emoticon window will appear. If your Skype version is compatible you should be able to click and insert the secret emoticons in your chat window, because otherwise, it will display a message “Please make sure skype is forground.” Basically, that is all there is to this application. It would be useful if it was not for the obnoxious advertisements, because typing the emoticons yourself is annoying.

If you choose to click the ad, you might get redirected to a website that hosts downloads of potentially unwanted software, such as useless registry cleaners.
