PriceItDown is officially classified as an adware program created to generate traffic and revenue to sponsoring third parties by distributing ads. Compatible with the commonly used browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer), it may enter your system without your permission, disturb your browsing activities and make your system vulnerable to additional threats. Its removal is then strongly recommended.

How Does PriceItDown Work?

As an ad-supported program, PriceItDown exists thanks to its sponsoring third parties. In order to support them, it enters your system uninvited, and starts displaying multiple pop-up ads while you are surfing the Web. The websites you normally visit may also be flooded by ads, banners, in-text links. All these pop-ups advertise products and services of the sponsoring parties at discounted prices, and by constantly disturbing your activities the pop-ups aim to trick you into clicking them – accidentally or not.

Once clicked, they may redirect you to unwanted websites – that’s how traffic to a specific website is generated. As much as this is annoying, however, it is also risky as these websites you are redirected to may be corrupted and may further infect your system.

In addition, PriceItDown is capable of spying on your browsing activities, record that information and collect personal data from you. It may then send that information to its third parties that will use it to personalise the ads you will be bombarded with.

How Does PriceItDown Enter Your PC?

Adware programs usually enter your PC via free programs you download from the Web. Freeware is often bundled with PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) and even malicious components that enter your system unnoticed. You can, however, disable the bundling at the beginning of the installation, to ensure you will only end up with the program you chose in the first place.

How to Remove PriceItDown

You can remove PriceItDown manually, by following the steps below. However, we recommend you to use a trustworthy anti-malware tool that will fully scan your system, remove the malicious software and continue to protect your computer from future threats.
