Computer users often tend to ignore random pop-ups that appear on their browsers because they think it is a temporary problem. However, if you have LionShopper installed on your computer, then these pop-ups will not disappear anywhere. LionShopper is an adware application that has been developed in order to generate financial profit for its creators. It is not a dangerous computer security threat, but you are not advised to keep it on your PC. The sooner you remove LionShopper from the system, the better. Adware programs should not be taken lightly because they can be exploited in cybercrime schemes.
We can access the main website for LionShopper at lionshopper.info. As one can tell from the name of the application, this program tries to pass for a useful extension that can block annoying ads from appearing on your browser. It is rather ironic, considering that LionShopper generates and displays a lot of commercial pop-ups itself. The main homepage says that with LionShopper you can save money while shopping online. However, the main homepage does not have a direct download link, so there is no way users can download and install LionShopper consciously.
The problem is that LionShopper usually gets distributed together with other unwanted applications. It is common among all adware programs from the same semi-random name family. In other words, LionShopper is just another version of Supreme Adblocker, RealDeal, TicTacCoupon and many other applications that should be removed from your computer immediately. You probably installed LionShopper yourself when you downloaded something from a file-sharing website. Based on our security research, LionShopper is distributed mostly via InstallRex, Vittalia and Amonetize installers.
When this adware application enters your system, it adds extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome web browsers. If you have a newer version of Google Chrome, it will block LionShopper, but the application will still get installed on your PC. Even though, LionShopper says that it can block annoying ads, sooner rather than later it will begin displaying a lot of annoying pop-ups. These pop-ups will be embedded with content related to your most recent web searches. This way LionShopper increases the possibility of you clicking its ads. However, you should know better than to trust LionShopper – this program could be easily exploited by malicious third parties.
This means that by clicking LionShopper ads you could get redirected to malicious websites that distribute adware and even malware. You have to avoid that at all costs, and the best way to do it is to remove LionShopper right now.
