Online shopping is by far more convenient than your traditional shopping, but there are specific security problems associated with it. ShoppingOn is one of those browser extensions that may cause annoying security issues. Creators of adware programs depend on the user’s wish to purchase everything at lower prices. ShoppingOn is supposed to provide you with relevant information on your favorite goods, but that is very far from the truth. If you do not remove ShoppingOn on time, you may even experience a malware infection because cyber criminals have lately been using such freeware apps to distribute their malicious content.

If we were to take a look at ShoppingOn’s official website, we would see that there is nothing fancy about it. The website can be accessed at shoppingon.info. The website has a generic layout and provides us with basic information on the website. It says that with ShoppingOn browser add-on “you can enjoy the convenience of shopping online and choosing from a selection of great deals right in your own Web browser.” In other words, ShoppingOn should make your online shopping more convenient and practical. However, you will soon realize that the best way to deal with this application is to remove it because it can hardly live up to its promises.

This application comes from a big group of adware programs that are all based on the JustPlugIt engine. Based on several common features, we can tell that ShoppingOn is practically identical to Foxwebber, Giftssoft, Coupextensionz, and many other apps. They are all distributed via third-party installers such as InstallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize. This means that ShoppingOn didn’t enter your computer on its own. You most probably installed it along with some other application that you have recently downloaded from a third-party website. Research shows that users often get the installers that promote ShoppingOn after clicking fake download buttons in torrent websites.

This also implies that users often do not even realize they have unwanted programs on board. They will most probably notice that something is not right when ShoppingOn starts displaying annoying pop-up ads and coupon offers whenever they access online stores. We have to inform you that it is not a good idea to click any of the ShoppingOn ads. This adware application cannot be held responsible for the ad security, so they could be embedded with outgoing links to malicious websites as well.

If you do not click those links, nothing bad will happen, but ShoppingOn would still remain on your computer, and that is no good. You need to remove ShoppingOn right now and then scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool. You have to be absolutely sure that there are no more unwanted applications on board.
