DynamicInterface is a suspicious program that will exclusively hit the Mac computers. Its objective is to intrude an internet browser program and manipulate the online searching of Mac users. That being said, DynamicInterface will carry out unwanted adjustment on the browser configuration that will enforce the replacement of default settings on homepage and search engine. In addition, it can integrate a script that redirects the browser to official website of the endorsed search tool.
DynamicInterface is a PUA
It is fortunate for victims of DynamicInterface that it is not classified as a dangerous computer virus. Based on the findings of malware researchers, the software is fit to be in the group of potentially unwanted application (PUA). The basis for this categorization is the invasive factors that DynamicInterface are using to secretly get inside the Mac computer.
Even if DynamicInterface is not listed as a computer virus, users must know that it is also not safe to ignore its presence. The pop-up ads and redirects emerging from its occurrence may drive web users to accidentally visit a malicious site that host adware, malware, or viruses. Eventually, they may end up accessing these hazardous objects through aggressive pop-ups and misleading prompts. Thus, we highly recommend the immediate removal of DynamicInterface by executing the guide on this page.

As shown in the image above, the intrusive pop-up advertisement is under the disguise of a software update. In reality this is a fake software update that will install DynamicInterface on the Mac computer once executed.
