Before Speedcheckme bombards you with pop-up ads, it researches you by keeping track of your preferences and interests. It monitors your browsing habits – all of your searches, website visits, every link you click on, everything is cataloged. By keeping an eye on you, the program then knows what to throw your way that would have the best chance of resulting in a click, i.e. revenue. This data is then sent out to these malicious third parties, who can choose to use it however they please. Don’t wait for the worst to happen, and remove the Speedcheckme as soon as you are aware of its presence.
