What is Wajam?

Wajam  is a browser extension for your browsers, including Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, which enables to access the content shared by your friends through your search engine. The extension is not a virus even though some people regard it as such because of the advertisements that pop up while browsing the Internet. Do not worry about them because if you want to remove the extension, you can do it without any restrictions.

How does Wajam  work?

The social search add-on Wajam is available at its website wajam.com and to many users’ disappointment, this application can be installed along with freeware or shareware. After the installation, you can browse for particular information and find a social search layer containing relevant information shared by your friends on Facebook walls, Twitter, Google+, and other social networks.

The annoying feature about which many computer users complain is pop-up ads. They think that if Wajam  is installed without their consent, their computers are infected with adware. In fact, the advertisements can be opted out. The ads may seem to be worthless to the majority of users because they recommend various items on sale, so if you do not want to receive them, you can disable them. Below you will find an excerpt from the Privacy Policy:

You may view and manage your advertising preferences at any time by accessing your account settings. You can choose to opt out of advertising at any time by visiting your account settings.
