It is easy to tell by FlexibleShopper’s name what this browser add-on is meant to do. It is expected to improve your online shopping experience by enabling you to save money on your online purchases. Unfortunately, this will probably not happen, so using FlexibleShopper is not only pointless, but could also turn out to be dangerous. The extension is ad-supported and what will happen after it gets installed on your PC is that tons of ads will take over your browser.

How did I get infected with?

The FlexibleShopper add-on used to have an official web page which is no longer active. Thus, you can be certain that if you are seeing ads by FlexibleShopper, the extension has managed to enter your PC without you noticing. This can happen during the setup of some free applications, especially ones you have acquired from unofficial file sharing web pages. These apps arrive on the system together with adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs. The developers of these programs rely on users’ carelessness to distribute their products. This means that if you select Custom/Advanced installation option and complete each setup step carefully, you will be able to decline the installation of additional software.

Why are these ads dangerous?

You can be sure about one thing, FlexibleShopper ads will not provide you with any beneficial deals and offers. The ads’ only purpose is to redirect you to websites that need to increase their traffic count or to ones that spread infections. For each click on an ad by FlexibleShopper the developers of the application receive money. If you are OK with someone earning money thanks to you, you should at least make sure that does not interfere with your privacy and security. In the case of FlexibleShopper it does as the add-on will collect information about you and its ads will expose you to threats. Therefore, if you are willing to save any money while shopping online, you should get rid of FlexibleShopper and replace it with a more reliable application.
