Find out about the adverse influence of the CloudScout Parental Control application, including the nagging issue of ads being displayed on websites.
Free software and the term “ad-supported” appear to be adjacent components of a complex whole. On the one hand, this cooperation makes it possible for the developers of open source programs to stay afloat; on the other, it often causes user experience problems. The unfortunate part here is that the actual application can be useful and enjoy quite a bit of popularity with customers. The tool known as CloudScout, for instance, is primarily intended to block inappropriate pages on the Internet through the use of a cloud-powered reputational database. The people who start using it, however, typically do not know about the side effects emanating from the aggressive advertising vector accompanying its operation. A fact that makes this utility yet more reminiscent of adware is that it is distributed in an unethical way for the most part.
