What is ShopperPro?
ShopperPro is an adware application that gets installed on your computer as a browser extension. This program has been developed to provide you with the most relevant information related to online shopping. Hence ShopperPro can be considered a useful browser extension, especially if you are an avid online shopper. Nevertheless, such applications are often related to potentially malicious third parties that are searching for different ways for malware distribution. ShopperPro could be a part of malware distribution scheme, so if you do not use the application often, remove ShopperPro from the PC to prevent any undesirable consequences.
Where does ShopperPro come from?
One of the main reasons why we can’t classify ShopperPro as computer infection is that the application is available for download out in the open at its official website. You can access the website at shopper-pro.com. There you are told that this application is developed by Goobzo LTD and it is a great all-in-one tool that can offer you information on coupons, discount offers and even provide you with the money-back guarantee.
However, the official website is definitely not the only source for ShopperPro distribution. What are the chances that users stumble across the site and download the application? Given the fact that there is a considerate number of users who complain having ShopperPro on their computers without even remembering having downloaded it, it is easy to see that the application is also being distributed via bundled downloads.
According to computer security researchers, ShopperPro is usually bundled with dealPly adware. It means that even if you do not remember having installed the application on your PC, it is very likely that you HAVE gone through the process without even realizing it. It also means that aside from ShopperPro, there might be other potentially unwanted applications on your computer.
What does ShopperPro do?
Just like any other adware application ShopperPro displays commercial advertisements. These pop-up ads are supposed to help you save money on your purchases, but the question is whether you can really trust the third party content displayed by the application. After all, ShopperPro collects information on your web browsing history, in order to provide you with relevant commercial ads, but the content is being generated via third party advertising network.
Consequently, ShopperPro cannot be held responsible for the third party content, so even corrupted links could be embedded into the aforementioned ads. Were you to click them, you could end up being infected with something nasty.
How to remove ShopperPro?
Needles to say, that malware infection is not a definite case scenario when it comes to ShopperPro, but you cannot simply ignore such a possibility. Therefore, if you find the pop-ups annoying and useless, you should uninstall ShopperPro from your computer. After manual removal, scan your computer with SpyHunter free scanner to check for other potentially unwanted applications. Remove them as well, and invest in a licensed antimalware tool if need be.
