iShopper is promoted as an online shopping assistant tool, yet experts classify it as adware because of the advertising materials it injects in the websites the user views. Adware programs are often employed as advertising platforms by online marketers. The ads they push may not only be irritating, but they may as well direct the computer user to unsafe web locations. The removal of iShopper is recommended.
iShopper is available online but is can also enter your machine as you install freeware or shareware. This stealth installation technique is called “bundling” and is often used by software developers. To avoid the additionally added apps and add-ons, choose the Advanced options when you install new software on your computer.
Although iShopper is a legitimate program, there are a lot of risks associated with it that are related to the third-party materials it promotes. PC users may end up visiting corrupted websites or unintentionally install malware on their PCs. iShopper and similar adware do not assume liability for the contents of the websites the user gets redirected to, once he clicks on the ad.
To display marketing materials that match the interests of the user iShopper may collect personally non-identifiable information such as:
- Browsing history
- IP address
- Search queries
