UltraApplication is an adware infection from the AdLoad adware family. It’s a minor infection that mainly focuses on showing ads.



All adware infections from the AdLoad adware family are more or less identical to one another. They are very easy to identify because they appear in the Applications folder. If you open Finder and click Applications, you will see UltraApplication among the installed apps if the adware is present.

The purpose of adware is to expose users to sponsored content and ads. When adware is present, you will notice an increase in ads, as well as get redirected to seemingly random websites. While this is annoying to deal with, it makes it easier to recognize when adware is present.

While adware is annoying to deal with, it’s not directly harmful to the computer. However, it’s not harmless either because the ads it spams can be dangerous. The ads you see and sites you get redirected to can be dangerous in the sense that they may promote scams and hide malware.

One common scam that adware shows is fake virus alerts. These alerts are made to resemble legitimate notifications about infection but they’re not very convincing. The virus alerts claim that the computer is infected with serious malware and needs to be cleaned immediately. A phone number is displayed in these fake alerts, supposedly for tech support. If users call the number, they will be connected to professional scammers. These scammers usually pretend to be support technicians working for Apple or Microsoft depending on the users’ device. To supposedly clean the device from malware, they request remote access to the device. If granted, scammers will pretend to fix the computer while also stealing personal files/information. It’s also pretty common for them to set a password for the computer, unbeknown to the user. At the end of this fake malware removal session, users are asked to pay at least a couple of hundred dollars. Paying would be a waste of money because users neither needed nor actually received any services.

You should be able to remove UltraApplication fairly easily as it’s not a complex infection. It should be visible in the Applications folder. If so, you can just drag it to the Bin. You can also use an anti-malware program to delete UltraApplication adware (Mac).

How did UltraApplication adware install on my Mac?

In most cases, users are tricked into installing infections like adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs via the free software bundling method. What happens is that said infections can be added to free software as extra offers. The offers are authorized to be installed automatically without requiring explicit permission from users.

The added offers are technically optional. However, they are preselected to install alongside and need to be manually deselected to prevent their installation. However, users often do not do this simply because the offers are hidden in settings users don’t normally use. This makes software bundling a rather controversial installation method. It’s also worth mentioning that many popular anti-malware programs detect programs that use software bundling as potential threats.

Preventing unwanted installations is not difficult as long as you pay attention when installing programs. The installation window will ask you to choose which settings to use, Default or Advanced. The window may recommend Default but if you use these settings, all added offers will be installed automatically. However, if you opt for Advanced settings, all offers will be made visible. You will also be able to deselect what you do not want. It’s always recommended to deselect all offers because legitimate programs do not use this installation method. If you allow these installations, you will only fill your computer with junk programs that can be difficult to get rid of once fully installed.
