How to uninstall Health Alert
Health Alert is an application designed for those who are concerned with their health and want to be notified about various health risks. The application is compatible with all popular browsers. On its main page it is described as a tool that will alert you of “pending decease outbreaks” and help you “stay informed and healthy”. The site provides you with a working download link, however, the program is also known to travel bundled with free third party software.
Although Health Alert may seem useful to some computer users, it is classified as adware. This means that the application will flood your browsers with various pop-ups, banners, sponsored links and other types of ads. If you want to get rid of them, you will have to delete Health Alert.
How does Health Alert work?
Health Alert may look like a helpful application, however, its main purpose is to promote its associated sites. By generating web traffic and rerouting you to various webpages the developers of the program make profit. Although it may have positive features, you will be constantly exposed to commercial content and that will become bothersome very quickly. Moreover, you should keep in mind that the advertisements you see may not be trustworthy. Even if you see ads that seem like good deals, we advise against clicking on them. Fake adverts could lead to malware infections and other undesirable consequences.
If you did not download the program from its official site, it means that it arrived bundled with freeware. If that is the case, you may also have other potentially unwanted applications installed. You will have to terminate Health Alert along with them. To avoid these programs in the future, you should pay more attention to the freeware you are installing and choose Advanced installation mode whenever you can. This will allow you to decline access to adware, browser hijackers and other software that has no business being on your PC.
