DigDeep Ads – What Is It?

DigDeep Ads is a software that is considered to be adware by many experts and is an unwanted program on your computer. The program cannot be downloaded from their website diggingdeep.net for some reason. However, there is a big possibility that it may come in combination with free software that users install daily on their computers. Programs, like torrent engines, video converters, photo editing software, music players and other similar may have DigDeep Ads bundled within their Setup programs.

More to it, we have researched DigDeep`s Privacy Policy only to establish that the company will install different types of LSO (Local Shared Objects) i.e. tracking cookies on the computer in order to monitor all browsing related information and user input information in the web browser. Also, we have discovered that the company does not restrict itself to collecting personal information. Also, the company states that after the software uninstalls, some files may remain on the computer.

DigDeep may not be directly dangerous to the PC. However, there is a chance that this program may display critical advertised content that may use devious tactics to drain financials out of the user.

Detecting a bundled program during installation may be tricky for some users. That`s why it is recommended always to click on ‘Custom’ or ‘Advanced’ installation buttons to see everything that is included in the setup package. If any additional programs are found, it is a good practice to remove the ticks from texts that begin with ‘Include this program for free’ or similar. Also, watch for ‘I Accept’ and ‘I Decline’ buttons.
