CodecV is a free browser add-on which displays coupons, special offers and advertisements. Due to the fact that the application disturbs computer users with advertising content, it is regarded as an adware program. Like WxDFast and Download N’Save, CodecV generates coupons when browsing popular shopping websites, including Ebay, Amazon, and Best Buy. The application may be bundled with other programs, which means that you should pay attention to the installation wizard when installing a free program. If you do not know the program or do not want it to make certain changes on the computer, decline the installation.
CodecV is not associated with the websites that are being promoted. Every website that you land on after clicking on the CodecV advertisements is independent from CodecV, which means that you use the browser add-on at your own risk. If you want to purchase an item or get a service from the provider which you do not know, make sure that it is a reliable one in order to prevent sad consequences.
The advertisements or pop-ups provided by CodecV may suggest installing a computer program or updating your programs. You may also be invited to play online games or visit some shopping website. Not all of the CodecV ads are unreliable, but you should be aware of the danger to which you may be exposed by CodecV.
The browser add-on is not a computer infection and it is not dangerous on its own, but we recommend that you remove it from the computer. Different tracking techniques may be used to monitor how you browse the Internet so that the developers of the program and third parties can draw conclusions on your browsing patterns and provide you with more relevant advertisements and offers. The information that may be collected by CodecV and third parties includes your search terms, browsing preferences, impressions, the URLs of the websites that you visit and some other details. It is possible that some personally identifiable information will be obtained by CodecV, so if you do not want to risk, take action to remove CodecV from the browsers.
