What is Web Frog Deals?
Web Frog Deals is one of the names of an adware application that generates commercial pop-ups when you browse the Internet. This program may also be called simply Web Frog or Web Frog Ads depending on which keyword is the most frequent among the computer users and the security experts.

However, it can be annoying and even dangerous if the application ends up being exploited by malevolent third parties.

Where does Web Frog Deals come from?
If you have come across the main home page for this application at webfrog.co, you must have noticed the amusing front page and the promotional tag line which promises that you will search the Internet with the ease of Web Frog. The surfing frog definitely ads up to the overall image of smooth surfing, but the fun stops there, because if you click the Start Now! button – no download is initiated.
That is not too surprising, because similar applications from SuperWeb family, such as SupraSavings, Rock Turner Ads or InnoApp Ads also have non-functional home pages. It suggests that the main method of distribution for Web Frog Deals is none the other, but bundled downloads. Hence, if you want to avoid adware applications, you should be careful about what you install on your computer.
What does Web Frog Deals do?
We cannot expect anything new of Web Frog Deals, because it is, after all, an adware application. It means that the main purpose of the app is to promote third party content. Although this application is promoted as a browser extension that can help you improve your overall search experience, it still gets installed on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer as a browser extension.
When the installation is complete, Web Frog Deals starts collecting information on what websites you visit, what you search for online and so on. Once it collects enough data to generate commercial advertisements, you will notice more and more pop-ups appear on your browser’s window each time you access such online shopping websites as Walmart, BestBuy, Expedia and others.
