Buy4Less is an adware application that is based on Crossrider engine. There are a lot of adware programs that are based on the same engine, including Deeal, DropinSavings, Browser_Apps and many more. None of these programs are dangerous computer infections, but you should not keep an adware application on your computer because these programs might get exploited by cyber criminals. Hence, you need to remove Buy4Less immediately if you want to protect your system from any potential harm. While you are at it, make sure you terminate all the other unwanted applications that might be running on your PC.
One of the reasons why Buy4Less looks like a reliable browser extension is that you can easily download it at the official webpage via falkors.com. The official website says that Buy4Less is a revolutionary browser add-on that will help you save money and time whenever you shop online. It says that the application will provide you with relevant coupons when you access Zappos, Amazon, Walmart, Target and many other popular online shopping malls.
On the other hand, you might say that you have no idea where Buy4Less came from. It is possible to be taken by surprise by the onslaught of commercial advertisements each time you open your favorite online store. The truth is that, for the most part users seldom download and install applications like Buy4Less from the official websites. It is a lot more common for such add-ons to come bundled with freeware apps, especially when users download them from third-party distributors. It is very likely that you have installed Buy4Less onto your PC without even realizing it.
As it has been mentioned above, Buy4Less is not a computer virus, so there is no need to panic. This application will add a plug-in to your main browser (as it works with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer), and it will start collecting data on your web browsing habits. What is more, when you access a supported website and hover your mouse cursor above the image of a potential purchase, Buy4Less will display a button. If you click it, the application will redirect you to an affiliate website which is supposed to offer you the same good for an optimal price.
Unfortunately, Buy4Less might as well be used as a malware distribution tool by cybercriminals, or you could be inevitably exposed to suspicious online marketing schemes. In order to avoid that, you have to uninstall Buy4Less immediately. Please follow the manual removal instructions below this description. After manual removal, you are urged to scan your system with SpyHunter free scanner because you need to make sure that your computer is safe.
