How did I get infected with GoSaveNow?

Applications such as GoSaveNow are spread around the web using the most common distribution method called software bundling. This method relies on freeware and shareware programs that users often download. The installer of GoSaveNow is bundled with the installer of the application the users wants to download, and that is how it appears on the PC. In most cases users are informed about the installation of the additional application but they usually do not pay enough attention to the installation process to notice it. Furthermore, it is essential to avoid unknown websites when it comes to downloading software, you should only use reliable sources and should always do a research on the application you are planning to download.

Why is GoSaveNow dangerous?

GoSaveNow is not an application that we recommend having on your computer because it will monitor  your online behavior and will collect information on your browsing habits, which may include browser settings, IP address, visited websites, etc. This information will serve for providing you with ads more relevant to your interests. The idea behind it is for the ads to be more appealing which is supposed to make you click on them. This is something you should not do because there is a great chance that you will be redirected to malicious websites and a number of dangerous infections will infiltrate your system. Therefore, the wisest thing you could do is to avoid the ads and to remove GoSaveNow from your operating system right away.
