ToppyPop is an ad-supported browser extension that generates advertisements and may affect the browser’s performance.
This is what the official description says (from toppypop.net):
→ToppyPop provides you with a much easier & comfortable way to browse the web. Great for viewing long/infinite pages, refreshing and more without using your browser top navigation menu.
The application is promoted on the official website. However, we couldn’t find a way to download it from there. Thus, ToppyPop is likely distributed via the bundling method. This means that the extension may have been included in the packages of freeware products.
What Should I know about Bundling?
Silent and unattended bundles can also take place. In order to stop unknown software from downloading onto your PC, you should sustain a strong AV program. Also, you can enable the Windows Firewall, and enhance your browser Security settings.
Should I Remove ToppyPop?
ToppyPop is not a malicious application. However, it can flood the browser with intrusive advertisements. Adware is also known to employ tracking technologies and gather information from users.
This is an excerpt from the Terms of Services of ToppyPop regarding its Third party policy:
