The installer of the browser add-on gets attached to the installers of random unreliable free apps and gets installed on the system along with them. Please note that this only happens when you download freeware from dubious file sharing websites. If you use official sources, you will not experience any problems of this kind. Surfkeepit and other similar software can also be spread through random ads you will see on questionable web pages. These ads may promote some supposedly useful application which is actually adware.

As a typical ad-supported extension, Surfkeepit is capable of monitoring your web activity and collecting information about it. You can be certain that it is exactly what the add-on will start doing as soon as it gets installed on your browser. Thus, in time you will start seeing more and more relevant advertisements. Still, you should avoid them because they might redirect you to websites spreading malware. These websites belong to the third-party sponsors of Surfkeepit who are anonymous and therefore should not be trusted.
