Fun Shopper Removal Manual

Fun Shopper is promoted as a useful browser add-on that enhances the user’s online shopping experience. The application is supposed to find relevant deals, coupons and offers and present them to the user. The pop-ups labeled “Ads by Fun Shopper” may appear in the popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, IE). Although this functionality may be seen as beneficial, users are advised to remove the application from their computers. Experts consider the promoted third-party ads a potential threat to the PC’s safety because they may link the user to unsafe or corrupted web pages and expose the system to malware infiltration.

How Is Fun Shopper Distributed?

The browser add-on can be downloaded online. Fun Shopper can also enter the machine unnoticed, as a part of a freeware bundle. Since this procedure becomes more and more popular, users are advised to opt for custom installation and un-tick any pre-checked boxes.

Often potentially unwanted programs find their way in the user’s computer bundled with media players, PDF creators and other free of charge software users can download online.

The careful selection of your download sources is crucial for the stability and performance of your system.

Fun Shopper – How Does It Work?

adware-programs
Once installed, the application starts displaying numerous advertisements in the web pages you visit. They may appear as banners, pop-ups, deals and coupons, but the one thing they have in common is the fact that they only aim to generate pay-per-click profit for their creators.

The application’s primary goal is to serve relevant marketing content, so it tracks certain information on the affected machine – IP address, visited URLs, entered search terms. Although this data is personally non-identifiable, it may still land in the wrong hands and pose risks to your system.

Fun Shopper may also initiate unwanted redirects to third-party pages.
