LoudMo belongs to the category of Potentially Unwanted Programs, also known as PUPs.

PUPs are programs that, due to their features or means of distribution, can affect users' consent, awareness or control over operations like:

  • Installation.
  • Modifications carried out on the computer.
  • Behavior of the program.
  • Processing of personal data.
