Pricemeter is a program which you can attach to your web browsers and which can search and present supposedly beneficial saving deals. The application works on such popular sites as walmart.com, dell.com and hp.com, which is why computer users often install the application themselves. Even though you cannot download the program from pricemeter.net at the moment, there are plenty of third party software distributors which may offer the application. For example, the extension could be presented via the IronSource’s installcore installers. Whether you have downloaded the application yourself or you have found it running on the PC without permission, we recommend having Pricemeter deleted.
The issue with Pricemeter is that this application could be installed onto the PC alongside other computer programs and browser extensions. Unfortunately, not all of them might be reliable and beneficial. There is no secret that cyber criminals use all available security vulnerabilities to infiltrate malware onto the operating systems. Needless to say, they are smart enough to use online advertisements as a backdoor as well. Since Pricemeter advertisements and pop-ups can present links to third-party sites, you need to recognize that you could be routed to unreliable websites as well. Since this is considered to be potentially dangerous, we advise that you always stay cautious.
Are you familiar with DuuQu, Bonanza Deals or DealPly? These applications are very similar to Pricemeter. They can use web cookies to track your browsing habits. What is more, they are affiliated to undisclosed parties who serve online advertisements. Simply because the third parties are undisclosed we consider them to be unreliable. Needless to say, the reliability of Pricemeter is questionable as well. If you do not want to put your own virtual security at risk, we recommend that you minimize the interaction with suspicious, potentially unreliable applications and their services.
You can install automatic malware detection and removal software to delete undesirable software. Authentic software should be able to detect and remove Pricemeter as well because this application is considered to be an advertisement supported program. Note that if you use authentic security software, you will not need to worry about the removal of other unreliable programs or the protection of the operating system. On the other hand, if you choose to remove Pricemeter manually, you will need to examine the computer and delete unreliable, intrusive software by yourself. Note that you can use the free SpyHunter’s scanner to inspect the system.
