Pricemeter Ads

What is Pricemeter Ads?

Pricemeter is a piece of software that automatically distributes advertisements for profit. The main sign of this advertisement supported program is various unwanted adverts, offers, and price comparisons between numerous online vendors (Amazon, Walmart, HP and others). In most cases this adware will get onto your operating system bundled with some other freeware. It is common for third party software distributors to use software packaging for the infiltration of questionable applications. On one hand Picemeter does not present anything infectious or malicious, on the other hand it does not hold any beneficial traits, thus it is advised that you delete Picemeter from your operating system.

Where does Pricemeter come from?

The direct download link was active on the official Pricemeter website but for an unknown reason it does not seem to work any longer. This means that if you find this adware on your system it probably came bundled with freeware. Always be careful with any freeware that you download, as it often can contain bundled third-party software. Thus paying attention during the installation process of any kind of software is always a good idea as you could avoid the unwanted applications on your operating system.

What does Pricemeter do?

The most notable feature of Pricemeter is the comparison offers, e.g., you will be presented with pop-ups that will compare the same product from two different internet vendors. These pop-ups and adverts will slow down your browser making the experience annoying in general.  Among these pop-up adverts you could come across links to malicious websites that could be responsible for various infections. This is so because Priscemeter does not review all of the third-party content that it presents.

Another reason why you should want to remove Pricemeter is that it monitors the user, collects personal data and shares that information with third-party marketing vendors, so adverts could be targeted at you. Here is what the company states:

We may, and you approve us to share or transfer information, including Personal Information, internally within our group of companies

Being tracked by a suspicious company and having your personal details shared with third parties is never a positive thing. Thus, you should delete this unwanted application; the following section will help you to do just that.

How to remove Pricemeter?

Although Pricemeter does not affect your system like a virus or an infection would, keep in mind its dubious traits could be exploited against you, for instance, an infection could gain access through a malicious website that was presented via a pop-up ad. Therefore it is strongly recommended that you delete Pricemeter. It can be done manually but using a professional malware removal tool to avoid leaving any unwanted traces within your operating system is your best bet.
