What is Feven 1.8?
Feven 1.8 is a potentially unwanted program classified as adware. It displays a lot of annoying pop-ups when you access online shops. According to the official information displayed at feven.com, the application is compatible with over 1000 online shops, including Amazon, Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy and so on. In a way, Feven 1.8 can really provide you with useful discount offers that can help you save money on your online purchases, but that comes at a cost – the application may also expose you to potentially malicious third party content. Therefore, you need to take care of it before any undesirable activity is detected.
Where does Feven 1.8 come from?
It has been mentioned above that this adware application has an official website. However, there is no download link available at the site. It suggests that rather than distributing the application via official channels, the creators of this application (Brightcircle Investments Limited) bundle it with other freeware, and the program gets installed on a computer automatically with other applications. Based on a security research, Feven 1.8 is usually bundled with WeDownload Manager, Ads not by this site virus, Jollywallet and other applications. You should be able to opt out of installing Feven 1.8 on your computer, especially if you go through freeware installation step by step, but if you just skip the steps then it is very likely that Feven 1.8 gets installed on your PC.
What does Feven 1.8 do?
Since it is an adware application, it does what adware is best at – commercial content promotion. Since Feven 1.8 wants to come across as a useful browser plugin, it displays various discount offers and coupon deals whenever you access online shopping websites. Feven 1.8 is supposed to be compatible with all main browsers, but Mozilla Firefox is known to block the plugin, citing it as potentially harmful. That should be enough to convince you that it is for the best to remove Feven 1.8 from your computer. However, if you still think that this application could be useful, keep in mind that any security-minded computer user would not want the application in his/her system, because it collects web browsing information via tracking cookies.
This information is not personally identifiable, but it could be later on use for marketing purposes and even for malware distribution. Feven 1.8 is not the one at fault here, but it cannot help it if a malevolent third party decides to exploit it. After all, the application is rather vulnerable and has some security holes.
