How to remove NetProgress PUP from Mac

Sharing is caring!

What is NetProgress?

NetProgress is a rogue application that can end up on your macOS computer. Once inside, it hijacks popular browsers such as Safari, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox. It is designed for advertising purposes. This program displays banners, coupons, pop-ups, and other commercial content. The ads will be extremely annoying – they will pop up suddenly, block the page content, and cause redirections to sponsored websites on a click. Also, it collects your personal information and then sends it to third parties. Therefore, if you find NetProgress on your computer, you should remove it right away. Do not waste your time.
