What is Findizer?
Findizer is another recently developed advertising-supported application that might appear on your computer one day. The Internet Explorer and Google Chrome versions of this extension can be easily downloaded from its official website findizer.fr, whereas Google Chrome users get it from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/application-findizer/apbbnlboenllhnddfpokmeeiinhhhmmc). Unfortunately, you cannot be sure that you will never encounter this program if you do not download it willingly because it is already clear that it might enter computers rather secretly because it is spread in software bundles as well. To be frank, it does not really matter you have downloaded this program willingly from its official sources, or it has found an alternative way to sneak onto your computer because you need to remove Findizer from your computer ASAP. Adware should not be kept installed because it might cause harm very quickly no matter it looks like it is completely harmless.
What does Findizer do?
It is evident that Findizer is targeted at French-speaking users primarily; however, it might appear on your computer no matter where you live. At first, many users think that it is a beneficial application because it promises to show coupons automatically that could help to save some money when shopping online. Also, it says that it will enable users to save items they like and then easily access this wish list later. The application should also help users find where to buy a particular product for a lower price, if we believe the information found on its official website. Specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com do not believe any of the promises this advertising-supported application makes because it is clear that its main goal is to promote particular websites and drive traffic to them. The developer of Findizer is probably even receiving money for this. The only thing that you can get if you keep adware installed and allow it to act the way it wants is a bunch of malicious applications. Researchers have noticed that ads this program provides users with might promote even untrustworthy websites promoting undesirable applications. Also, users might end up with bad programs if they click on pop-ups offering to install some kind of application or update a program already installed on the computer. Luckily, such ads will not be shown for you frequently.
Specialists do not think that Findizer can be trusted and kept installed also because it collects information about users and their browsing activities. Even though this application mainly gathers non-personally identifiable information like search queries, browsing history, links clicked on, and similar details that seem to be unimportant at first sight, you still need to be careful and consider whether you really want to allow Findizer to gather details about you because non-personally identifiable information, e.g. search data might also contain personal details. Users enter these details themselves when performing web searches. If you let Findizer stay, your privacy might be violated one day, and then you could only blame yourself that you did not remove the ad-supported program when you had a chance to do that.
Where does Findizer come from?
As we have already mentioned at the beginning of this report, Findizer can be downloaded from its official website or the Chrome Web Store; however, it is known that it might enter computers rather secretly too. It has been found that this ad-supported application usually enters computers in software bundles, which also explains why users do not notice when this adware program enters their computers. We are sure that you have noticed yourself that adware programs are very irritating, so we suggest being more careful if you wish to prevent them from slithering onto the computer. First of all, you should be very careful with free applications that can be downloaded from file-sharing websites. Secondly, we highly recommend that you install security software on your PC and enable it to protect your computer 24/7.
