Many computer users consider adware, PUPs, spyware, trojans as the same thing. They are all forms of undesired applications that each behave differently. The word ‘adware’ is a combination of two words ‘ad’ and ‘software’. Adware presents advertisements on an infected device (computer, android, iphone, so on). Not very dangerous for users, but very profitable for the the software makers.
Does adware steal your confidential data? Adware can have spyware and keyloggers built into the program, leading to greater damage to your system and possible invasion of your personal data.
