KidStart Savings Prompt

What is KidStart Savings Prompt?

KidStart Savings Prompt is a tool that provides services that users are introduced to via kidstart.co.uk. This tool is introduced as a useful shopping assistant that should help save money while you shop online. However, Anti-Spyware-101.com research team believes that this is a tool for third parties to showcase their offers. Although you might think you are the one that this program serves, it is more likely that third-party vendors are the ones that have the most use out of this advertising-supported program. Third parties have the opportunity to showcase their own offers via pop-ups, banners, and other kinds of advertising that are selected specifically for you using tracking cookies. Third-parties are allowed installing cookies, and they are also provided with your personal information, which is why most users delete KidStart Savings Prompt without any hesitation. Of course, if you have not analyzed the Membership Rules or the Privacy & Security Policy documents, you might be completely unaware of how this adware works.testtesttest

How does KidStart Savings Prompt work?

The Membership Rules is an important document to read before signing up for the services of KidStart Savings Prompt. By signing up for these services and downloading the software, you agree to have your savings balance modified and the information about your payment card collected and shared with undisclosed partners. Although the homepage lists Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Amazon, eBay, British Airways, and other reputable companies among the so-called partners, we are not sure if all parties can be trusted. The Membership Rules statement suggests contacting KidStart Limited if you require the full list of service providers. Even so, this company takes no responsibility for the services of third-party vendors. This is quite disconcerting considering that these parties can have access to the information regarding your payment cards. If you have signed up for the membership, you must have also disclosed your full name, data of birth, email address, home address, and possibly your phone number. This data could be shared with certain parties as well. Hopefully, KidStart Savings Prompt is not associated with parties that could use this data for identity theft, but you need to be careful nonetheless.

Once installed, the advertisement-supported program can be found in its folder under %PROGRAMFILES% (or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%), and it is added to the Windows Registry. The list below represents the CLSIDs that we associate with this suspicious adware. If you do not delete these CLSIDs or the files, it will remain active. Luckily, it unlikely that you will need to erase the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\KidStart Savings Prompt key or all other components one by one if you uninstall this program from your operating system. The bad news is that you will need to delete some leftovers, and we can help you with this part of the operation.{18C59DDE-4940-4294-B34A-26B31912BDE6}
