What is ProcessBrand?
ProcessBrand is a rogue application that overloads your Mac by injecting advertisements. This virus is named an adware because of its ability to infect Mac through advertisements. ProcessBrand enters user`s computers without their consent in order to secretly attack Mac.
When ProcessBrand enters Mac, it performs a full system scan and attacks the browser settings. After that, virus floods the Mac screen with pop-up windows with information about errors that are actually not there. This is done in order to convince victims to click on notifications. It doesn’t matter which browser you use: Safari, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, ads appear in any way promoting fake pages. If you click on these ads, you will be taken to the fake pages promoted by ProcessBrand.
You need to remove ProcessBrand from your Mac, because it not only annoys the constant display of ads, but also damages the system. Advertising and redirects significantly reduce the activity of the Mac.
