True to its name, SaltarSmart is an adware application that functions as a plugin that is supposed to improve your online shopping experience. You could also be familiar with the similar applications under the names of BrowseFox, LemurLeap Virus, SwiftDeals and so on.

Although quite a few users think that this adware application is a malicious computer infection, it is not exactly the case, as computer security experts usually categorize SaltarSmart as potentially unwanted program. Due to the fact, that users quite often install this program without even realizing it, security experts encourage to remove SaltarSmart from affected computers to avoid potential security issues.

Just like with many other potentially unwanted programs and adware applications, SaltarSmart may arrive at your computer in a variety of ways. For one, it is possible to download the program at saltarsmart.biz, but probably the more common way involves downloading the application bundled with shareware from third party websites. Or sometimes, various free applications can be bundled with such additional plugins as from the very start. This means you need to be attentive during freeware installation, and check all the setup steps accurately. Otherwise you may end up installing a program you neither need nor want.

SaltarSmart is similar to a number of coupons and other online shopping plugins. It is supposed to help you compare prices of the same good at a number of online shopping malls. However, in order to do that, SaltarSmart collects specific information related to your web browsing habits, which includes your IP address, your browser history, search queries and similar details. Quite a lot of browser plugins and applications collect similar information, but the problem with SaltarSmart is that it can hardly be trusted with it, as the app has an extremely loose privacy policy.

It means that the plugin may be exploited by malicious third parties if only they know how to do it. That is not to say that once SaltarSmart is installed you will get infected with malware immediately, but that could be one of the outcomes, and in order to prevent it, you should uninstall SaltarSmart from your computer.
