Do you think you can save money and learn about good investment deals if you install Demoney? That is what the creator of this advertising-supported program wants you to believe in, but, in reality, its primary task is to showcase advertisements, and that is why it has caught the attention of our malware research team. It was found that the allegedly beneficial extension can display ads whenever you browse the web, and it can also modify the search results you see to include sponsored links as well. Does that sound to you like a beneficial service? It certainly is not, and that is why it is advised that you delete Demoney from your Google Chrome browser immediately. At the moment, this browser is the only one that the ad-supported add-on is compatible with. Could versions of this extension be created for other web browsers? The possibility is always there; however, considering that it is no longer introduced to users via known sources, our guess is that its creator has already moved on to other projects.
How did you encounter Demoney? If you have installed it recently, the chances are that you found it in a software bundle packaged with other questionable programs, or you were introduced to it via a misleading pop-up offer. If this adware was installed a while ago, you might have acquired it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/demoney/kllloaknkaplmddmkjiejbekliclelff (Chrome app store) or defertank.com. At the moment, these pages are down, and so the suspicious extension is not promoted in a transparent manner. When it was introduced to users in that way, it was promoted as a tool that could help you save money. Whether or not this service is real – which is unlikely to be the case – it is most important to focus on the fact that it can showcase advertisements. What do you know about Demoney? Not much. What do you know about the advertisers or adware server associated with the creator of this adware? You probably know nothing about this at all. Then why would you trust the services and the ads shown to you? Instead of doing that, we recommend removing adware ASAP.
Interacting with unpredictable advertisements is dangerous because they could be misleading. Whether you are shown surveys, prize giveaways, genuine looking-shopping offers, recommendations, security alerts, or any other kind of content, if it is shown to you by Demoney, the chances are that it is not very reliable. By clicking on these ads, you can let in unwanted data-tracking tools (e.g., web cookies), as well as expose yourself to scams and malware. Whether you have disclosed information, visited third-party sites, or downloaded files while interacting with the content shown by Demoney, you might be in trouble. We suggest installing a legitimate malware scanner right away. If any threats exist, this tool will inform you about them right away. Of course, if malware is found, you must delete it immediately.
Some users will be able to remove Demoney and all other unwanted pieces of software manually. The guide below shows how to reset your Google Chrome browser and get rid of unreliable extensions. This should be enough to eliminate the suspicious ad-supported extension for good. What about other threats? If you cannot find manual removal guides on this website, you can post a comment for our malware research team. You can also install trusted anti-malware software. If you downloaded the scanner available via the link below, you could upgrade it to automatically delete found threats as well. Whatever you do, you just need to make sure you that your browsers and your operating system are clean. If you cannot achieve that, using legitimate anti-malware software is a great idea; especially because it can also take care of your system’s protection in the future.
