What is Amazon Mini Saver?
Amazon Mini Saver is a browser add-on that is compatible with all main web browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome Mozilla Firefox). This browser add-on functions as an adware application by displaying commercial advertisements. Amazon Mini Saver generates advertisements in order to help its creators make easy money. This add-on is not malicious, but such extensions should not be trusted 100%. It would be in your web interest to remove Amazon Mini Saver from your computer, because you can never know what malevolent third party can exploit it for its malicious purposes.
Where does Amazon Mini Saver come from?
This add-on is created by Nero. Due to the fact that it functions on Amazon website only, it might seem that Amazon Mini Saver is an official Amazon extension. However, based on our security research, that is not exactly the case. It is very likely that this application gets distributed bundled with freeware. What is more, our security experts say that Amazon Mini Saver enters your system silently. It means that you are not informed about the installation.
It also means that if you have Amazon Mini Saver on your computer, you most probably have a list of other unwanted applications as well. Adware programs seldom travel alone!
What does Amazon Mini Saver do?
Since it is an adware application, Amazon Mini Saver is there to display advertising pop-ups when you browse Amazon. In some cases it may display coupons and discount offers as well. These pop-ups urge you to purchase certain goods at a lower price. However, when you click Amazon Mini Saver ads, you get redirected to other websites and increase their traffic. With increased traffic, you help people behind these websites make money.
It is not an illegal practice, but due to such features Amazon Mini Saver can be exploited by dangerous third parties that promote malware or steal personal information. That is one of the reasons why users should stay away from adware applications – they are not reliable. They may not try to infect you with malware, but they are highly vulnerable and that vulnerability may turn against you.
