How to remove LogicalAnalog (Mac)

LogicalAnalog is a type of adware that primarily targets Mac users. It is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that infiltrates a user’s system without their knowledge and begins to display intrusive pop-up ads, banners, and redirects to other websites. The main goal of LogicalAnalog is to generate revenue through these ads and redirects. However, it can also collect personal information about the user such as their browsing history, search queries, and even personal details which might be sold to third parties for marketing purposes.

LogicalAnalog typically infiltrates a Mac system through bundling, a method where the adware is packaged with other software, usually free or pirated versions, and the user unknowingly installs it. It can also be downloaded from deceptive pop-up ads or untrustworthy websites. Once installed, LogicalAnalog begins to alter the Mac’s settings, particularly those associated with web browsers like Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. It changes the default search engine, homepage, and new tab settings to its affiliated sites. This not only disrupts the user’s browsing experience but also exposes the user to potential security risks.
