Pro Flip Ads appears to be a new adware application targeted at Google Chrome’s users. If you believe the tool’s description, it was designed to help users find best shopping deals on the Internet. However, our researchers doubt it since it seems like the extension’s creators do not review their displayed ads or guarantee their reliability. Thus, it is more likely that the add-on was created to just generate advertising revenue for its creators. As you see, it's provided advertisements might come from unknown sources, including web pages, which could be distributing malware or trying to steal the user’s sensitive data. We do not say all of the ads might be malicious, but some of them could be. It seems to us the application is simply not worth to take any risks at all and if you think the same, we advise you to eliminate it before anything bad happens. The recommended deletion steps placed below the article should help you erase Pro Flip Ads manually, although the extension can be removed with a trustworthy antimalware tool as well.
Our researchers have learned that the adware might be spread not only through its homepage available on pro-flip.apps-repo.net or Google Chrome Web Store, but also through bundled installers received from file-sharing web pages distributing unreliable setup files. These installers could be offering more suspicious applications besides Pro Flip Ads, so our specialists advise you to review recently added programs to check if there could be more threats on the computer.
Furthermore, some information provided on the adware’s homepage, makes us doubt the reliability of the tool itself and the company that published it. For starters, one of the statements on the website’s FAQ section says “Unlike many browser add-ons, our app is clean, safe,” but according to the software’s Terms of Service document the application’s creators do not guarantee Pro Flip Ads is free of errors or viruses. Also, the same website claims the extension should work on Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and other popular browsers too, but our researchers confirm that at the moment it can be installed only by Google Chrome’s users.
As soon as the adware settles on the browser, it may start showing advertising content while you are visiting online shops or searching for products to purchase. The application’s description may say Pro Flip Ads “recognizes the products that you are currently visiting and displays a list of other online retailers,” but the following statement claims the add-on may “display other awesome deals that are not to be missed” too. Given that the displayed sponsored links, coupons, pop-ups, and other ads could come from unknown sources, it is quite possible that some of them might redirect you to suspicious online shops, web pages containing malware or suggesting you install other similar threats. Needless to say, this might mean using the extension could be potentially dangerous and under such circumstances, we advise against its usage.
If you are determined to keep your system safe and do not want to keep such questionable software as Pro Flip Ads, we recommend removing it at once. Users who want to deal with the application manually themselves should have a look at the deletion steps provided below and follow these steps carefully. As we mentioned at the beginning, the adware can be erased with trustworthy antimalware software too. Firstly, acquire a legitimate security tool, then set it to scan the system, and lastly press the deletion button that should be provided after the scanning is over.
