What Does IdentityStack Adware Do & How To Stop IdentityStack

popup ads adware

IdentityStack is an adware application that belongs to the AdLoad family of ad-supported programs, running on Macs.

IdentityStack can drop ads into the pages you browse online or display them as pop-ups. This is normal behavior for all ad-supported apps, but there is one big problem with those ads.

Ad-supported software or adware commonly works together with rogue advertising networks.

Ads that are delivered using rogue ad networks may refer to potentially dangerous pages and unsafe files. Clicks on rogue ads can send you to malicious pages, misleading websites and other questionable content, as well as online scams and fake giveaways or surveys.

IdentityStack uses a simple icon that was purposefully made to help it stay hidden among your other legitimate applications - a featureless grey circle with a white looking glass in it. Removal of AdLoad clones is relatively easy compared to more dangerous malware apps. Simply drag it into the Trash and then empty your Trash to remove it.
