FiziPop is an application that shows text link, pop-up, commercial, and other advertisements on your browser while playing games on the software’s website. Reviewing ads for free games might seem like a fair trade for you, but we have to warn you that the application is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because of particular undesirable behavior. For starters, it is important to know that the ads might come from questionable third-party web pages. Also, the application might come bundled with other doubtful applications. These are the main reasons we recommend you to delete the application if you do not want to risk harming your computer. Thus, you should keep reading the article and learn more about the PUP.
The PUP itself should gather only anonymous user data related to your browsing habits, e.g. visited sites, viewed content, clicked ads, browser type, etc. Mostly, this information should be used to create an individual profile for the user, which is essential to determine what the targeted ads should promote. As we said before, if you click these ads, you might land on possibly dangerous web pages, so they should be avoided. Although the safest choice would be to stop using the application and get rid of it at once.
Even though the application’s installer is provided in the PUP’s website, some users may have installed the application through bundled software. It means that you may have downloaded an installer that contained FiziPop too. Such installers might come from untrustworthy file-sharing sites that bundle various programs with adware, browser hijackers, PUPs, and other unreliable software. If you visit various file-sharing sites regularly, you should get an antimalware tool as it could help you avoid doubtful software.
The application is compatible only with Internet Explorer, so at least for now it should not work on any other browser. The application might place an extension on the Internet Explorer, so you should check your browser and remove it from its add-ons manager. Otherwise, the PUP might be deleted though the Control Panel feature. If you do not know how to access it, you should check the instructions at the end of the article. Another option is to install an antimalware tool and use it to delete all the data related to the PUP. Just launch the tool, scan your system and wait till it suggests removing the detections.
