Remove Amazon 1Button App (Virus Removal Guide)

Amazon 1Button App is a questionable program that may utilize deceptive marketing tactics in order to get users to install it. Amazon 1Button App is known to bundle with and be promoted alongside potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), adware, and malware.

Amazon 1Button App

Amazon 1Button App adware is promoted by third-party freeware installers, distributors such as Cnet, Softonic, etc., and the publisher as a free web tool and utility that can be used to notify computer users about Amazon deals, compared products, and prices. The program will install to a Windows operating system and attach to Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Crossbrowse as a browser add-on and extension. The Amazon 1Button App extension will appear on the top bar of an open internet browser window and will direct users to Amazon, as well as provide a search for Amazon and other sponsored webpages.

Amazon 1Button App bundles with additional unwanted programs, malware, and other possible malicious threats. This means that it might be necessary to uninstall multiple programs from Windows and remove multiple browser add-ons and extensions from Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. Many of these programs can not easily be found on a computer system without third-party security software.

Amazon 1Button App and the programs that it bundles with serve ‘targeted’ advertisements to users while they browse the internet. This is a privacy concern because targeted advertisements can only be produced by the adware if it has access to user browsing data, such as all browsing activities, bookmarks, app data, and browser history. This information is observed and used to generate advertisements it feels users are most likely to click on.

Aside from pop-up advertisements, these programs can also cause unwanted browser redirections to sponsored webpages, like Jogostempo.com, decreased computer productivity, and decreased internet speeds.

Furthermore, Amazon 1Button App adware and the additional programs that it bundles with also manufacture new tasks and change existing Windows start-up settings in order to run every time the operating system starts and remain enabled if disabled by the user. Programs and browser attachments that may arrive with this deceptive piece of adware can also cause other issues for computer and internet users aside from pop-up advertisements, including browser redirections and a loss in computer functionality and internet connectivity. Furthermore, if Amazon 1Button App is manually removed, it is possibly that the adware or another one in its place will return before a week has passed.

Amazon 1Button App adware is usually promoted as a recommended or sponsored/custom download alongside third-party freeware. Computer and internet users who seek to download and install free programs and files online may be presented with an opportunity to accept or decline a ‘custom’ offer to install Amazon 1Button App adware and other programs during the setup and installation process. However, the request to decline Amazon 1Button App adware from installing is often presented in a very confusing manner. In some cases, the download manager may completely ignore the user request to decline Amazon 1Button App from installing and the adware will install against user consent and knowledge.
