Ads by CompareNBuy are intrusive online advertisements which serve as an evidence that the CompareNBuy browser add-on has been installed on your browser. It does not make any difference if you use Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Google Chrome because the extension is compatible with all of them. CompareNBuy will surely try to convince you about its usefulness by presenting you with ads of products offered at exclusive prices. Do your best to stay away from these ads and make sure you delete CompareNBuy because it is an extension that will not benefit you in any way.

How did I get infected with CompareNBuy?

Browser add-ons like CompareNBuy usually find their way into the system alongside free downloads. The installer of the extension is bundled with the installer of the chosen application, so when you install it, you also acquire the unwanted add-on and a few other programs you did not intend to download. It is possible to prevent this from happening by completing each setup step carefully. Read all the information you are provided with and disable all optional programs that you will be offered to install.

Why are CompareNBuy ads dangerous?

Since one of CompareNBuy’s features is displaying ads, it is obviously ad-supported. Once it gets installed on your system, the CompareNBuy browser add-on will start performing some activities like connecting to the Internet without permission. Thanks to this, the extension will have access to remove advertising servers where it will get all the ads it displays from. Keep in mind that they are not a creation of the add-on but of unknown third parties. So, clicking an ad will lead you to some dubious website where you might be tricked to install malicious software. We strongly recommend that you remove CompareNBuy from your PC in order to avoid security-related issues.
