There are only two explanations why you have it and see NetSurf Ads – you have downloaded this piece of software willingly from the Chrome Web store or clicked on the Add to Chrome button on its official website net-surf.webstore-advisor.net/us/install.

Continue reading this article to find out more, and then delete the browser extension or let it stay, depending on the final decision you make.

One of the main problems associated with NetSurf Ads is that they might be displayed on all websites users open and thus ruin their Internet browsing experience. As the NetSurf extension promises, some of them might inform users about the availability of cheaper products at certain online stores, but others might only be displayed for users expecting that they will click on them and end up on third-party pages. To put it differently, NetSurf Ads might be used to promote certain pages – the developer of this extension might even get the revenue for doing that. According to specialists, some of these commercials might be untrustworthy too, i.e. they might redirect to pages which cannot be trusted or, for example, pretend to be online stores. It is one of the main reasons specialists suggests users not click on those ads and rush to delete them all permanently.

Although NetSurf promises to let users know about low prices and thus help them save a great amount of money and time, it is still classified as an adware program because of the ads it provides users with. These ads make it an unwanted program, but their presence is not the only thing users find undesirable. Our researchers have checked the Privacy Policy document available on the official website of NetSurf, and it has become clear that this piece of software also collects information about users. Most probably, it needs information about their habits and activities on the web so that it could provide them with relevant ads. It should only use non-personally identifiable information, e.g. URLS of visited websites, technical details, and “information voluntarily submitted by users.” It is said in this document that the gathered data will be used to enhance the users’ experience and deliver the so-called preference-based content to them. It will not receive the information that can identify users personally, but they still find this activity undesirable. If you have the same opinion, go to delete the NetSurf extension to stop all activities it performs, including the distribution of NetSurf Ads.

Sources NetSurf can be downloaded from exist, but it does not mean that all users download this extension willingly from these places. Judging from the users’ complaints, there are many cases when this ad-supported program arrives on users’ computers bundled with third-party software. This also explains why users do not even notice when the installation of this adware happens. Nowadays, a bunch of programs travel in software bundles. It seems that their creators have found a way how to easily reach hundreds of computers. Because of this, you must be even more cautious. Additionally, all computers connected to the Internet must be equipped with reputable security software, so go to install one ASAP.
