What is FormatBoost?
At first glance, this is a common search engine that improves the performance of the Mac. However, adware viruses always position themselves as something convenient and safe in order to attract users. The main purpose of FormatBoost is to direct user traffic to unnecessary web pages promoted by virus in order to generate pay-per-click revenue for developers.
Also, developers receive income from monitoring important personal data stolen from victims (passwords, logins, bank account, etc.). In order to reduce the activity of the system, virus displays a large number of advertisements in the Mac. Clicks on ads take victims to dangerous pages and can download malicious apps without your permission. Redirects can occur unexpectedly while browsing the Internet. All your browsing history and information entered will be tracked, so there is a great risk of personal data leakage and financial losses. The only way to save Mac from losses is to remove FormatBoost as soon as possible.
