The get4cheaper application is promoted as a helpful online shopping assistant tool. The browser add-on is supposed to supply users with the best deals, offers, discounts and price comparisons. However, malware experts warn that the pop-up ads may be quite irritating and not only disrupt your browsing routine, but they can link you to unsafe web pages and compromise the safety of your system. Get4cheaper can be removed manually or with a competent AV tool.
How Does Get4cheaper Affect Your PC?
The application injects numerous advertisements labeled “Ads by get4cheaper”, “Powered by Get4cheaper”, “You’ve received a premium offer from Get4cheaper” in the web pages you visit. Third-party ads bear different security risks for the affected machine since they can redirect you to corrupted websites or make your system vulnerable to infections.
Get4cheaper displays advertisements matching your interest and for that purpose it collects information about the web pages you visit, your search terms, the duration of your browsing sessions, IP address, etc. Adware programs often share the collected data with third party advertisers who can further use it in their campaigns.
The ads displayed by Get4cheaper aim to generate profit for the application’s developers and boost the web traffic for certain predetermined web pages.
Get4cheaper – Distribution Techniques
The Get4cheaper add-on is compatible with all the popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) and usually ends up in your system with a freeware bundle. This method is legitimate, yet it is often misused by developers to spread questionable applications and programs, which may pose security risks to the system. Select the Advanced options when you install new software on your computer to opt-out of unwanted applications, add-ons, and extensions. Most of them seem to enter your system without your consent because they are not properly disclosed upon installation, but the fact is that you give them your permission by simply clicking the Next button throughout the installation process.
