How does App Lid work?
App Lid is a Crossrider program, very similar to many other advertising-supported browser add-ons. The program is quite old, but if you have it on your computer, you have probably noticed that its pop-ups are labeled “Ads by App Lid,” “Provided by Add Lid,” etc. It is worth noting that App Lid is not related to the content of the offers. The developers of the program accept no responsibility for pricing errors, reliability, and safety concerning the infection with App Lid. As a result, any website owner can use the service of App Lid to advertise their product or services. Adware programs are one of the means used to promote phishing websites, which is why we encourage you to remove App Lid from your PC.
The adware program is also capable of recording certain non-personally identifiable information, which is done for marketing and advertising purposes. The owners of the program want to know what your preferences are and how you browse the Internet, so they implement various tracking techniques to record your clicks, impressions, search terms, browsing history, browser settings, and other anonymous information. In some cases, some personally identifiable information, such as email address or last name, may be recorded. This usually depends on how you handle your personal information. If you use your personal information and a so-called vanity search, your name is likely to be recorded, and this may have some effect on you in the future.
