There are many dubious and unnecessary media players and media player updates. RadPlayer is one of them. RadPlayer (also searched for as RadPlayer virus, Coup coup) is detected as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) by most reputable Antivirus and Anti-Malware products. The possibly dubious media player has a high detection ratio. RadPlayer is known to inject the webpages you visit with advertisements that usually say Ads by RadPlayer, Powered by RadPlayer, or brought by RadPlayer on them. RadPlayer ads can simultaneously generate across multiple internet browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Apple Safari.
Potential RadPlayer malware injects the websites you visit with pop-up ‘targeted’ style ads. Targeted advertisements are a privacy concern because they use your personal browsing information (including all your data on the websites you visit) to produce specific advertisements it feels you are most likely to click on. The adware essentially ‘targets’ you based off information it observes and collects about your current and past browsing experiences.
RadPlayer adware is not technically defined as a computer virus but this adware is still a threat to your privacy and can be the sign of a severe malware infection. The internet security community strongly recommends that you remove RadPlayer if you find it installed on your machine or attached to your internet browser as a browser add-on or extension and use reputable Antivirus or Anti-Malware software to eradicate any existing malicious files.
RadPlayer and programs like it are usually contracted without knowledge. RadPlayer is often bundled inside third-party software downloaders and bundlers. It may arrive on a computer system once other programs have been introduced to the machine. Software that RadPlayer adware may bundle with includes freeware, shareware, and dubious torrent files.
