Even though Maxi Buy is one of those applications developed for the users’ convenience, you should think twice before you install it on your computer. Yes, we have to agree with you that this piece of software looks really beneficial; however, we also know that many users decide to delete it from their computers because they find recommendations, deals, and other pop-ups it shows extremely annoying. Of course, Maxi Buy might be installed on users’ computers without their knowledge as well. If your web browser (the application worked on Google Chrome only at the time of analysis) has started showing various notifications to you, but you are sure you have not installed any new application recently, there is basically no doubt that Maxi Buy has been installed on your computer without your knowledge. It does not mean that you have to keep it installed on your system in this case. The Maxi Buy removal will not be complicated at all – you will no longer see any pop-ups if you delete the browser extension named Maxi Buy from your system.
It is not a secret how Maxi Buy acts once installed on users’ computers. Generally speaking, it searches for products a user views at thousands of other online stores to find where it can be purchased for a lower price and then shows a notification to the user. According to specialists working at 411-spyware.com, it might also show various recommendations and deals. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that these online stores cheaper products are found at can be trusted fully, so you could only blame yourself if you decide to purchase the item but something goes wrong, for example, you get charged twice. If you are not going to use Maxi Buy, or you have not found it useful at all, we see no reason why you should keep it installed on your computer. You should also remove this application if you do not want it to record some information about you automatically.
Luckily, research has shown that Maxi Buy does not record the so-called personally-identifiable information (“No personal data will be collected or stored by the Company during the use of the Service”). Instead, it records various non-personally identifiable details. For example, if it stays active, it will automatically record your IP address, URLs you visit, product-related keywords, browser type and version, characteristics or the name of the product displayed, etc. It needs all those details to provide you with the service, but if you are not going to use it, you should not let it record any information. You can put an end to all activities Maxi Buy performs only by fully erasing it from your computer.
If you see pop-ups whenever you open a product at an online store, you must have Maxi Buy installed on your computer. Some users download it consciously from its official website (http://maxi-buy.kreativcdn.net/us/install), or the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/maxi-buy/glfmbnjhfdnblpgihgcflmnjbpoaegna?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon), but if you know that you have not installed any new application recently, there is a possibility that you have encountered it because you have installed a software bundle on your computer. Such bundles usually contain several applications that look useful, so it is not surprising that users do not even notice that they agree with the installation of a suspicious application as well. Since it might be quite problematic to prevent all suspicious applications from entering the system, we highly recommend installing and keeping security software active on your computer.
If you are tired of seeing pop-ups with recommendations and deals coming from your web browser, you should remove Maxi Buy from your computer. We are 99% sure that it is the one responsible for showing them. Just like any other application, it can be removed automatically as well, so if you do not have time to erase it yourself manually, you should acquire a trustworthy scanner and then perform a system scan.
