Why are these ads dangerous?

It learns what your preferences are and, therefore, which ads have a better shot at sparking your interest and result in a click. Then it bombards you with them. After all, every ad you are fooled into clicking on, is profit for the unknown third parties behind the tool. But the program doesn’t just monitor your browsing activities. It also catalogs them, and once it feels it has collected enough data on you, sends it to the aforementioned individuals. Think long and hard whether or not it’s worth the risk of handing out any and all personal and financial information, you might have shared, to unknown malicious people. If the answer is “no”, be sure to get rid of Free2you the first chance you get. You’ll spare yourself a lot of troubles and headaches.
