CrazyLowPrices is an ad-supported browser extension classified as a PUP (potentially unwanted program). CrazyLowPrices is promoted as a shopping assistant tool that displays deals, coupons and offers as the user views online shopping sites. Keep in mind that the marketing content promoted by CrazyLowPrices can be rather intrusive, and the extension itself is known to collect data and indirectly cause security issues. Malware researchers recommend the removal of CrazyLowPrices for safety reasons.
How Is CrazyLowPrices Distributed?
CrazyLowPrices can be downloaded online, but more often the application is distributed to the user’s system unnoticed, as a part of a freeware bundle. Stealth installations are not hard to avoid – all you need to do is select the Advanced options with every software installation.
How Does CrazyLowPrices Affect Your PC?
CrazyLowPrices is similar to many other potentially unwanted programs with money-saving functionality. Once active on the affected machine GoodDeals displays numerous advertisements in the user’s browser and interrupts his online activities. The third-party ads CrazyLowPrices promotes may direct the user to questionable websites and pose various risks to the system. The marketing materials that flood the user’s screen serve a rather obvious purpose – to generate profit and boost the web traffic for certain pages.
To push adequate ad materials, CrazyLowPrices tracks personally non-identifiable information (IP address, search queries, browsing history.) The collected data may end up in the hands of interested third parties.
CrazyLowPrices may also cause the following issues:
- Slow down the performance of your browser
- Cause unwanted redirects to suspicious sites
- Lead to poor system performance
