What is PlurPush?

PlurPush is assigned to the category of adware because it displays various annoying advertisements and pop-ups while browsing the Internet. This is the main reason why we advise you to remove PlurPush. This add-on is compatible with Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and RockMelt. PlurPush is advertised as a tool which can customize and enhance your interaction with various websites. However, you should not trust it because it is mainly developed for commercial purposes and might even violate your privacy.

How does PlurPush work?

If you install PlurPush into your computer, you will start seeing advertisements because this software is supported by various ads including search, banner, text link, transitional, interstitial, and full page advertisements. PlurPush is very annoying and might also redirect you to websites whose content is unknown. PlurPush states that it is not responsible for the content of the third parties so you will never know where you might end up so there is always a risk of getting your computer infected. In addition to this, there is another reason why you should delete PlurPush. It is known that it might collect your browsing habits such as the websites you visit and the time you spend there. Even though it claims that it collects information only in order to deliver relevant advertisements, you should know that it uses cookies, pixels, and other technologies; thus, it can be called privacy-invasive.

As our researchers have discovered, PlurPush might be downloaded from its official website (unavailable at the time of writing), but it usually gets into your computer using different ways. Its main path is through bundled downloads. When you download software from unreliable sources and do not monitor the installation process, PlurPush might be easily installed into your computer and immediately start displaying various annoying advertisements and pop-ups. You should always select custom installation and unmark all the unnecessary components to prevent them from being installed.
