The adware threatens to not only redirect you to dangerous websites but also to steal sensitive information. This menace spies on you from day one. It studies your browsing habits and uses the gathered information as a base for ad targeting. The adware knows which websites you visit, what links you follow, what search queries you make, what videos you watch. The Incognito mode of your browser cannot hide you. The adware knows everything! And when it deems it has enough data, it proceeds to share this information. Do you think that ends well? You may argue that the parasite collects insensitive data. Some pieces of data, your search queries, or example, may contain personal and financial details. Do not test your luck. The more time you tolerate the adware, the bigger the chance it records something sensitive. Heed the experts’ advice: as soon as the pop-ups appear, take action. Find where the adware lurks and delete it upon detection. Remove this menace ASAP!
