RightOfferApp is a questionable application that has been reported by many PC users for its suspicious activities. RightOfferApp is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because of the stealth manner in which it installs on the user’s PC and its ability to install tracking cookies on the affected machine. RightOfferApp also inserts various advertisements in the user’s browser, none of which is worth clicking, experts warn. Although the browser add-on is supposed to inform the users about the best deals and offers online, malware researchers recommend removing the tool because its disadvantages outweigh its perks.
How Does RightOfferApp Affect Your PC?
RightOfferApp has the same features as many other potentially unwanted programs that offer money-saving functionality. As soon as it is installed on the user’s computer, RightOfferApp displays a variety of pop-ups, banners deals and offers that interrupt the online routine of the user. The third-party ads RightOfferApp inserts may direct the user to websites with suspicious content and pose a risk to the system’s safety. All of the promoted ad content serves a rather distinct purpose – to generate profit and boost the web traffic for certain pages.
To push ads that match the user’s interests, RightOfferApp tracks personally non-identifiable data (IP address, search queries, browsing history.) The collected information may end up in the hands of third party advertisers.
RightOfferApp may also cause:
- Browser slowdowns
- Unwanted redirects to suspicious sites
- Poor system performance
How Is RightOfferApp Distributed?
In most cases, RightOfferApp is distributed to the user’s system unnoticed, in a freeware bundle. Stealth installations are not hard to detect and disallow – all you need to do is choose the Advanced options with every new software installation.
