What Is ExpandedCommand?
ExpandedCommand is a typical advertising application for Mac devices. Specialists called it adware because it infects the system by injecting advertisements. Inexperienced users usually do not pay attention to constant notifications, thinking that they bring nothing but annoyance. Not with ExpandedCommand. This virus provides the system with a lot of notifications to overload it. Overloading the device will reduce its performance. It is worth noting that advertising overlaps the content on the screen, this brings serious tediousness to work

Therefore, we provide you with manual and automatic removal to choose from (if this is the first time you encounter such problems and are not sure that you can remove ExpandedCommand manually, then use the automatic removal.)

How to Protect Your Mac From ExpandedCommand and Other Adware:
- Get a powerful anti-malware software, capable of detecting and eliminating PUPs. Having several on-demand scanners would be a good idea too.
- Keep your OS, browsers and security software up to date. Malware creators find new browser and OS vulnerabilities to exploit all the time. Software writers, in turn, release patches and updates to get rid of the known vulnerabilities and lesser the chance of malware penetration. Antivirus program’s signature databases get updated every day and even more often to include new virus signatures.
- Download and use uBlock Origin, Adblock, Adblock Plus or one of the similar trustworthy extensions for blocking third-party advertisements on web-sites.
- Don’t download software from unverified web-sites. You can easily download a trojan (malware that pretends to be a useful application); or some unwanted programs could get installed along with the app.
- 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.
