Web Frog Deals is an adware application that is part of the SuperWeb group of browser extensions. This program has been developed to provide users with relevant search results and help them purchase various goods at optimal price. However, computer security specialists recommend removing Web Frog Deals from the PC due to various security concerns related to potential malicious exploitation and third party content. What is more, the presence of Web Frog Deals on your computer indicates that you may also have other potentially unwanted programs installed on your system as well.
Potentially unwanted programs are not computer infections. They are categorized as “potentially unwanted” because of certain behavioral aspects that a security-minded user would not want to experience on his/her computer. For example, Web Frog Deals can make use of tracking cookies to collect data on what websites you visit and what queries you enter into your search engine. This information is collected in order to generate your “online profile” which later on allows Web Frog Deals to display commercial ads that are related to your overall likes and preferences.
This type of behavior is common to all adware applications from the same family – Cling Clang, Laflurla, InnoApp Ads and so on. Another common aspect among all of these applications is that they always come bundled with freeware. It is rather peculiar considering the fact that Web Frog Deals and other programs do have their own home pages. The home page for Web Frog Deals can be accessed at webfrog.co. There you can find additional information which says that this program is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers, and once the application gets installed, it adds an extension to your browser as well.
For the most part Web Frog Deals is merely an annoying application that constantly displays pop-ups whenever you access online shopping websites, such as Expedia, Walmart, BestBuy and so on. Technically, it should help you find goods at an optimal price, but the problem is that Web Frog Deals does not review all the third party content embedded in the pop-ups. Hence, when you click an advertisement, you click it on your own risk. If you get redirected to a suspicious and potentially risky website, you will not be able to blame Web Frog Deals for it, because you will have clicked it yourself.
To avoid undesirable and potentially dangerous content you should terminate Web Frog Deals right now. Scan your system with SpyHunter free scanner to determine what other freeware applications are installed on the PC and remove them all together at once. Do not hesitate to invest in a powerful antimalware tool if need be.
