Wajam is a social search browser add-on that allows the users to find what information has been searched online or shared by their friends on the commonly used social platforms like Twitter, Google+, Facebook, etc. Wajam only displays data that the users have decided to share. The browser extension is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. As this is an ad-supported browser plug-in, Wajam is known to display various advertisements that some users find quite annoying. What turns Wajam into a potentially unwanted application is the risk of various infections involved with the pop-up, banner and in-text ads, which may lead the user to unverified and unsafe webpages.

How Does Wajam Work?

Wajam can be downloaded from the official product webpage, but it can also get into your system via bundled downloads. Once installed, the add-on places a small toolbar above the hyperlinks. As soon as you sign in, you can view all the information your friends have shared. Above the search results displayed by Google, you can also see content associated with your friends’ account. Although the presented features may sound quite appealing to most users, there are some details that should be considered when using this application.

First of all, the sheer fact that Wajam may end up on your PC bundled with other free of charge programs you have downloaded on the Web is a red flag on its own. This technique is often used by hackers for the distribution of various adware programs and potentially unwanted freeware.

The ads displayed by Wajam may also present a potential threat to your computer. It is clearly stated in the Privacy Policy of the company that Wajam does not assume liability for any of the content on the recommended advertisement webpages. Clicking on any of the suggested links is at your own risk.

What Information Does Wajam Collect?

  • Wajam collects personal information from the social platforms it works with, in case you decide to share it. This information may be shared with third parties and affiliates of the company for advertising purposes.
  • Wajam also uses cookies and other tracking technology in order to provide the users with better services. Third parties associated with the add-on may also place cookies in your browser.
  • Wajam also collects information about your browsing activities and search queries.

How to Remove Wajam Safely?

As Wajam is not a malicious application, you can remove it manually from your computer. In case you have any suspicions that other potential threats may have entered your system through any of the ads or unsafe links you have followed, we advise you to use a legit anti-malware program to assure the safety of your computer.
