EasyToShop is an annoying adware that will serve you no good! You will get numerous pop-ups, ads and coupons that will interrupt your browsing experience. You will be a victim of tracking, and eventually this potentially unwanted application could serve as a gateway to an actual infection. Remove EasyToShop now and end your troubles while they are not out of hand!
Marketed as a useful tool that will help with your online shopping EasyToShop will not do any of those things. In the security world EasyToShop is considered to be adware as it serves no other purpose than displaying third-party adverts while you browse the web. Developed by InstalleRex-WebPick, it has been circulating around the web for quite some time now mostly affecting users from the USA. Basically the software is a variant of a known adware (SaveAS, SaveNShare, AKA) that is re-branded in order to hide its origin. Once any symptoms are present on your system we strongly recommend that you remove EasyToShop from your PC.
You could, most of the time, get this annoying infection without even knowing as it is distributed in various dubious ways. One of these ways is an Adobe and Java exploit. This is one of the main methods that unwanted and malicious applications are spread. Most users will be running Java or some kind of Adobe software on their systems, and what cybercriminals do is they create bogus update/upgrade/re-install pop-up that deceives users into allowing an installation process to take place. Making sure that any kind of update was issued lately on an official vendor is the best prevention from these kinds of attacks.
Various hoax email attachments are also a common way that unwanted and malicious applications are spread. Cyber crooks will try and make email look like a legitimate one in order to manipulate the user clicking on a malicious link or downloading a malicious attachment. Always take caution and double check the sender and the legitimacy of the sender as you can never truly know what you are clicking on or downloading onto your system. These habits could save your system. Furthermore, you will not be wasting time in order to remove the unwanted application.
Bundling third-party applications is another common way to spread these kinds of applications. Always pay attention to what are you actually installing. Especially if you are using popular download clients like: ClickDownload, Brothersoft, CNET etc. Always chose the advanced installation option in order to gain control over the process. You will be able to select the directory, and see if there are any other third-party applications being installed and if so there is always a possibility to stop that. Do not rush and you should be ok. Otherwise you will have to remove the adware as it is something that you do not want on your system.
“Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, postal address and phone number ("Personal Information").”
The statement is quite clear: you actually do not know what personal information is extracted while you browse while using this extension. It could be very sensitive data: date of birth, bank details, social security numbers etc. This could result in a very serious problem! To name a few: theft from the bank account, fake loans issued in your name. You can clearly see why we strongly advise users to remove this potentially unwanted application.
Another dubious trait that EasyToShow exhibits is various redirections to third-party vendor’s websites. Since EasyToShop cannot control the redirections and are not responsible for the content of those websites you are likely to land in a malicious website at some point. These malicious websites might be a cause of various infections. Also these dubious websites could be a hoax imitation of something that you are familiar with. An online shopping vendor, for instance. Without even knowing you could be lured into providing your sensitive data while trying to purchase something online. No goods will be delivered and you will end up with stolen personal data. Be very careful and if you have EasyToShop on your system try and avoid clicking on any links before you remove the unwanted application from your computer.
We recommend that you remove this application immediately! Manual removal can be tricky and should be performed by an advanced user only, as it might involve cleaning the Windows registry. Without prior knowledge of Windows registry only one inaccurate action could result in a total system failure. Thus we recommend using a professional and powerful antimalware tool. SpyHunter is our first choice, due to its efficiency in the area.
