Rocketsaler-adwareRocketsaler is a browser extension by WebPick, which is delivered via the InstallRex platform. Rocketsaler is designed to display various advertisements, banners and coupons as the user browses online shopping websites like Walmart, Ebay, etc. This may be considered useful by many, yet users should keep in mind that the promoted third party ads may redirect them to unsafe web locations and expose their system to security threats if clicked on.

Rocketsaler – Distribution

As a typical adware, Rocketsaler is distributed via bundled downloads of shareware and freeware. To prevent unwanted or unsafe installations on their computers, users should always select the Advanced options where they can see what additional programs and applications get installed along with the desired software and opt-out.

What Does Rocketsaler Do?

Once installed, Rocketsaler starts showing a number of banners, pop-up ads, coupons, etc. These can not only be quite annoying, but they can also present a certain risk to your computer if you decide to click on them.

Additionally, Rocketsaler may collect information about the user’s browsing habits, search queries, IP address, etc. The gathered data may then be shared with third parties for advertising purposes.

Remove Rocketsaler from Your Computer

Although adware is not considered a high-level threat, users should be careful with links and advertisements brought to them in the form of pop-ups and banners. To remove Rocketsaler from your computer permanently follow the steps below.
