Less2Pay is an application designed to help regular online shoppers save money from their online purchases, as its name suggests. Unfortunately, the program is not as beneficial as it claims to be. What it will do is to flood your browsers with various pop-ups, deals, special offers, and coupons. These should be avoided not only because they will disrupt your online activity, but also because they are potentially dangerous. The Less2Pay browser extension is classified as adware, which is why you should think twice before you decide to use its services.
How did I get infected with Less2Pay?
Less2Pay is represented at its official website – lesstopay.info. However, it is not very likely for users to download the application themselves as you cannot, because there is no actual file in the website. More often Less2Pay travels bundled with other freeware applications and that is how it arrives on the system. Computer users should be very attentive when installing programs in order to avoid the installation of suspicious additional applications like Less2Pay. Custom/Advanced installation option should always be selected and the information provided by the setup wizard should be read carefully.
Why are Less2Pay Ads dangerous?
Less2Pay is considered to be an unreliable application because it is sponsored by unknown third parties. This means that anyone can use the program’s advertising services, including cyber criminals. Therefore, the ads that Less2Pay will display may route you to malicious websites, which may result in serious security-related issues. What is more, there is a great chance that Less2Pay will track your online activity and will record information about you. So, if you are not happy with the fact that someone might be spying on you, you should not keep Less2Pay on your system any longer.
