What Is ConsoleProgram?
ConsoleProgram is an Mac infection application, which is a type of adware application. ConsoleProgram modifies browser settings to promote fake search engines and injects large amounts of ads. ConsoleProgram is also considered a potentially unwanted program because it infiltrates the system without notifying the victims.
ConsoleProgram has the ability to track victims’ data and collect information about them in order to monetize and sell to other scammers. This virus provides pop-ups, banners, coupons, polls and other intrusive ads to trick victims into clicking on ads and redirecting to fake pages promoted by ConsoleProgram.
These ads seriously degrade the viewing experience as they overlap the page content and slow down the system speed.
! To save your computer from the troubles caused by virus, remove ConsoleProgram as soon as possible!

Antivirus program’s signature databases get updated every day and even more often to include new virus signatures.

- When installing freeware or shareware, be sensible and don’t rush through the process. Choose Custom or Advanced installation mode, look for checkboxes that ask for your permission to install third-party apps and uncheck them, read End User License Agreement to make sure nothing else is going to get installed. You can make exceptions for the aps you know and trust, of course. If declining from installing unwanted programs is not possible, we advise you to cancel the installation completely.
