ProcessorProgression is an intrusive Mac program, which could show up on your device unexpectedly. It affects all recent versions of macOS and, thankfully, it is not a dangerous application. However, we assure you that it is not a piece of software you want to have to deal with. ProcessorProgression is known for introducing undesired changes to system and browser settings, as well as proving to be a nuisance to remove. Furthermore, ProcessorProgression's name is trying to mislead users into believing that this app has something to do with the system's processor – we assure you that there is no such thing.
The installation of ProcessorProgression often occurs through fake downloads, which users come across when trying to download software from non-trustworthy sites. Often, Mac users end up interacting with shady apps because they attempt to download pirated software and games – you should not touch such shady types of files. We consider ProcessorProgression to be a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP.) In addition to being intrusive, it will replace your browser's default new tab page, search engine, and even the homepage with an alternative site. The latter is typically a low-quality search service, which you should not expect to perform as well as reputable search engines like Google or Yahoo. If you are experiencing such changes, it is likely that a PUP like ProcessorProgression might be responsible for them. To fix this issue, we recommend running an up-to-date Mac security tool, which can check your entire system for intrusive apps.
