MySoftToday is classified as an ad-supported application that generates coupons for shopping sites. MySoftToday promises to display competitive prices for products the visitor wishes to purchase. No matter how useful the application may appear, its installation may be the reason for a series of privacy issues as well as browser misbehavior. If already installed, researchers suggest its removal as a precautionary measure.
MySoftToday Distribution Technique
MySoftToday may be available for download on legitimate websites. Another distribution technique is the so-called bundling of software. The method is considered a marketing strategy and involves selling more products at once. In the sense of software, developers often bundle their products with other pieces to monetize platforms or to cover financial losses. Even though bundling may seem shady, it is a legitimate method. MySoftToday has been mentioned in the EULA but by opting for the automatic installer, the user could not see it. That is why advanced installation is the best choice in terms of free downloads.
