Information on the official website for FindoPolis claims that this application is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. However, during our tests, FindoPolis got installed on Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers only. Nevertheless, with FindoPolis added to your browsers, each time you access such websites as eBay, BestBuy, Amazon and other popular shopping pages, you are flooded with random pop-ups that offer you to purchase your favorite goods at optimal prices, or so it would seem at first sight.
However, these pop-ups are exactly the thing that makes us wary of FindoPolis. The problem is that the application cannot generate the content for its advertisements on its own. Hence, it needs to rely on third party advertising networks, and due to that FindoPolis might get exploited by cyber criminals to promote their own corrupted content. Surely, FindoPolis does not intend to leak your personal information or infect you with malware, but adware applications are often too vulnerable to third party exploitation to keep them on your computer.
