OptiShopper’ s Symptoms

  • Once installed, OptiShopper generates a significant amount of online coupons, deals, and offers. Although this functionality may appear useful, malware experts warn that the presented ads may direct you to web pages with unverified or malicious content and expose your system to security risks.
  • OptiShopper may access your browsing data, like bookmarks, browsing history and search entries, and at some point share it with third party advertisers.
  • Adware programs often cause unwanted redirects to predetermined web pages.

OptiShopper’s Distribution

OptiShopper can be downloaded online, or it may end up on your PC as a part of a freeware bundle. Adware programs often get installed without the user’s consent. Usually, users click on the “Next” button until the installation is finished. This lack of attention leads to unwanted installation. The Advanced can help you select which of the additional add-ons, plug-ins, and applications you want to install. Carefully choose your download sources and update your anti-malware tools on a regular basis.
