How Does Expresso Helper Affect Your PC?

Expresso Helper displays countless pop-up and pop-under, inline text, banner, coupons, comparison shopping, and transitional ads on the websites you view. The promoted ads may seem harmless at first, but malware researchers warn that third-party ads may lead to serious security issues if click on. The seemingly innocent deals and banners may link you to corrupted web pages and invite different threats to your machine.

Ads by Expresso Helper may gather information, like URLs you have visited, IP address, search queries, browsing habits, etc. Personally identifiable information may also be tracked. Expresso Helper may share this data with third parties for the purposes of targeted advertisement.

How Is Expresso Helper Distributed?

Not paying attention to the download and installation processes may result in adware infiltrations. You can prevent additional installations by following each stage of the installation process closely. Select the Advanced options and manage each step of the process personally.
