If you find coupons and best deal offers when opening a new tab in your Google Chrome browser, chances are ShoppingDay has managed to sneak onto your system. We have labeled this browser extension as an adware program since it can display questionable third-party content on your screen and thus pose a threat to your virtual security. If you do not want to flood your system with malware infections or lose money by being scammed online, you had better act right now. We suggest that you remove ShoppingDay from your computer right away. But before you jump to the end of this article, we recommend that you read it first because you could find out how to prevent similar threats from entering your computer behind your back in the future.
The only official page belonging to this Israeli browser extension is home.shopping-day.com. which is indeed the search page that is set as your new tab as soon as you install this tool. But you cannot do so from this page. As a matter of fact, this adware program is supposed to be promoted by the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/shoppingday/kgeeboicnmjfeodkcfdoejpdhgdpajdg; however, this page does not seem to exist anymore. The usual reason for finding a 404 error page instead of a browser extension page is that users may have reported it as harmful or dangerous. Since you cannot even install this tool officially anymore, the question is, "how did it enter your computer?" If you are a security-minded user, you would probably delete ShoppingDay right away based on just this information; even though, you would have never even installed it in the first place.
The truth is that there could be other, more deceptive ways, too, to install this adware. Such infections are usually distributed in freeware bundles, for example. Cyber crooks can use malicious third-party installers to hide their shady package from the eyes of unsuspecting users. Such bundle installers are usually designed to be misleading. So whenever you are installing a bundle, you should make sure that you know exactly what it carries by reading its license agreement and choosing the custom or advanced installation option. You need to read every installation screen carefully not to miss a checkbox to deselect any unwanted browser setting change, for instance. It is quite easy to infect your system with a bundle of threats if you click on corrupt third-party ads on shady websites (torrent, freeware, gaming, video streaming, and the like) or you download cracked or free software from questionable torrent sites. We also need to mention the danger of having infections on your system like adware because such a threat can hijack reputable pages and legitimate third-party ads to take you to malicious pages or drop infections directly. We advise you to run a reliable online malware scanner after you delete ShoppingDay from your browser.
This ad-supported browser extension only seems to work in your Google Chrome browser; although, it may be blocked by now and not only in the Chrome web store. In any case, this tool sets itself as your new tab and presents to you a search page with coupons for well-known websites and brands like AliExpress. If you type 'shop in the address bar of your browser and hit the Tab key, you can enter the name of a product you are interested in to find best deal or coupons for, and this tool is supposed to list those for you. However, we need to warn you that these coupons may not be reliable at all and the search is also rather questionable. In fact, this adware sends your keywords through its server, feed.shopping-day.com, to Yahoo search and this is how you could be presented with manipulated results. This means that you could be introduced to potentially harmful ads and links on this page. If you click on the wrong content, you could let other infections on board or even lose money by being scammed on a fake website. If you want to save yourself from such headaches, we recommend that you remove ShoppingDay from your PC.
We have prepared the necessary guide for you below this report in case you are not familiar with how to remove a browser extension. You can easily perform these steps even if you are a beginner computer user. Please note that your computer may not become a safe haven just because you get rid of this one threat. How about all the other possible infections on your system? If you cannot detect and tackle those yourself, we suggest that you start employing a trustworthy malware removal application, such as SpyHunter as soon as possible.
