What is Atwola cookie?
Atwola is the name of a cookie that tracks the computer user’s browsing activity and interests. Gathering all the required information, it displays different ads, banners, pop-up ads in the browser. Atwola cookie is not a virus, because it doesn’t harm the computer, but it may freeze the browsing. Besides, unreliable ads often contain links to untrustworthy and suspicious web pages where you could get a real virus. This infection supports almost all well-known browsers as Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the majority of antiviruses are not able to detect Atwola and most users don’t even know about it. Moreover, even after removing from the browser, Atwola has the ability to restore itself. That’s why we need a special Removal Tool.
