Campaign Notifier – How Did I Get It
The main method by which Campaign Notifier infects your computer is called software bundling. Bundling is essentially the type of activity which is used by programs that are available for free download online. Some websites that provide software downloads also modify the setups of such programs to include Campaign Notifier to be bundled within their software installers. The program may not easily be spotted however as it often is concealed in one of the installation steps in the “Advanced” or “Custom” installation options, while often advertised as a free extra that claims to improve your web browsing experience.
The other scenario via which you may start seeing advertisements coming from Campaign Notifier is if you have visited a web page that is advertising it. Usually such web pages often aim to convince you that it is a useful browser extension that you should add and some web pages may even add it automatically as a result of a browser redirection. Such browser redirections are also caused by PUP’s, like Campaign Notifier and if that is the case, you may even have more adware on your PC, than you initially might suspect.

These technologies are wisely used by Campaign Notifier adware in order to possibly obtain different information from your computer.

The types of information which can be monitored by Campaign Notifier are believed to be the following:
- What you search for online.
- Your browsing history.

- Banner advertisements.
- Online pop-ups.
- Browser redirection.
- Online search results that are ad-supported.
The advertisements may or may not be with the name of Campaign Notifier and “Ad by Campaign Notifier” or “Campaign Notifier Ads” tags may be seen in one of the corners of the ads. The ads in general may not be malicious and only boost some domains you know nothing about, but in most cases this is not the situation. Since the ads lead to third parties, which Campaign Notifier has nothing to do with, they may pose different dangers for your computer, for example:
- They may display different types of fake web pages that may be of a phishing type and may aim to steal your information.
- The information displayed may be a fake login page to steal your credentials.
- You may be redirected to scamming sites that may pretend that your computer is under threat.
- Some of the ads may directly lead you to malicious URLs, whose purpose may be to infect your PC with dangerous malware.
