What Are First Verify Ads?

First Verify Ads can appear on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. They are generated by the adware program First Verify. Although this program is presented as a shopping assistant and its supposed purpose is to help users save money when shopping online, it is recommended that you stay away from it. Not only will it not be of any use, but it can cause troubles for the system’s security, as well. Not to mention that the program has most likely entered your system without your permission. If any advertisements appear that are labeled as “Ads by First Verify”, then the adware is definitely on your computer, and you should take immediate measures to remove it.
