What is The Sea App?
The Sea App is not likely an application you want to ‘see’ on your computer. This program and associated browser add-ons and extensions are potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) in the adware category of computer threats that may violate a user’s privacy by accessing their information for marketing purposes, including email promotions and targeted advertisements.
If you see ads by The Sea App while browsing the internet it is because the program and associated programs have been contracted. This often happens without user consent or knowledge, because really.. Who wants to be bombarded with questionable and possibly malicious advertisements that can decrease computing and browser performance, functionality, and overall speeds?
The Sea App and associated programs will usually obtain permissions to access, collect, control, and change user browser activities, user browsing data, and internet browser settings. Information and settings include browser activities, bookmarks, history, browser shortcuts, homepages, search engines, and more.
User browser data is often used to generate tailored advertisements but it may also be shared with third-parties and used for dishonest email promotions and other marketing procedures. If this program is installed users can receive a massive amount of email spam, junk mail at home, and even telephone calls from dubious callers and telemarketers.
Furthermore, this program might be the least of a computer users worries because it very frequently will bundle with other unwanted programs, malware, and suspicious browser attachments that can create additional issues on-top of privacy invading targeted advertisements and promotions.
