What Does InitialConnection Mac Adware Do?

InitialConnection is the name of an ad-supported app that works on Mac systems. App-supported apps are also referred to as "malware". InitialConnection belongs to the AdLoad family of adware clones.

InitialConnection has everything in common with the dozens if not hundreds of AdLoad clones that belong to the same family. All clones share the same generic icon. All those clone AdLoad apps also follow the same naming pattern - two words strung together to form a compound word, similar to InitialConnection.

InitialConnection will display ads that may be potentially dangerous on your Mac, just like all other adware apps do, whether they are AdLoad clones or not. Adware authors can often work in conjunction with rogue ad networks to deliver their ads. This means that the rogue ads displayed may refer to unsafe locations, scams, potentially unwanted app installers or questionable online content.

This behavior makes any adware app found on your Mac an undesirable presence. It is recommended that you remove all adware as soon as you spot it to limit your future exposure to potentially dangerous ads.

Removal of AdLoad clones on Mac is relatively easy. All you need to do is drag and drop the application onto your Trash and then clean the Trash.
