Remove QuickShop Permanently from Your Computer

QuickShop is an add supported application assisting the users as they shop online, providing them with different deals, offers, price comparisons and coupons. This functionality may be useful to many users, but please keep in mind that QuickShop is classified as PUP (potentially unwanted program), and adware and its removal is recommended. QuickShop is distributed via bundled downloads and generates intrusive third-party ads that may put your computer to various security risks. The QuickShop application is compatible with the commonly used browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.).

How Is QuickShop Distributed?

QuickShop can be downloaded online, but the application can also end up on your computer bundled with free of charge software you have downloaded online recently. Popular free download websites are known to employ the so called “download clients” in order to boost their traffic and monetize their free services. Not paying enough attention to the download and installation processes of free programs may result in diverse adware or malware infiltrations. You can avoid unwanted installations by observing each stage of the installation process closely and not allowing the installation of additional applications, plug-ins or programs. Perform every software installation by selecting the Custom options, where you can manage each step and have full transparency of the process.

How Does QuickShop Affect Your PC?

Upon installation, QuickShop injects countless annoying advertisements in the web pages visited by the user – coupon, banner, pop-up and pop-under, price comparison, inline text, and transitional ads. The promoted ads may seem quite harmful, yet computer experts warn that third-party advertisements are often capable of exposing your system to serious security issues if you choose to click on them. The seemingly innocent banners and coupons may link you to unreliable or corrupted websites and invite different threats to your PC.

The QuickShop browser extension may gather certain hardware and/or software information, for example, URLs you have visited, IP address, the pages you have recently viewed, search queries, etc. Bear in mind that personally identifiable data may also be collected. QuickShop may transfer the collected information to third parties for the purposes of targeted advertisement.
