Adware isn’t always bad – but it should be monitored

Adware is software primarily intended to show you ads. This is usually done by displaying them on your computer or smartphone as banners or popups, but sometimes also by hijacking your web browser and sending you to sites you did not want to visit.

Since advertising in legitimate software isn’t always unethical, it can be challenging to decide what is acceptable behavior and what isn’t. That’s why Sophos Home may sometimes report adware to you as a Potentially Unwanted Application (PUA), not as malware, depending on what we know about it. We then let you choose whether to authorize or remove it.

Rather than relying on “signatures” to spot existing malware, Sophos Home Premium uses advanced artificial intelligence to recognize when software is acting suspiciously. Sophos can identify malicious code that nobody’s ever seen before.

Sophos Home Premium protects your home computers from advanced adware programs used to steal your most valuable information with the best computer protection available today.
