WinDealist is a browser extension which promises you to find the best money saving deals whilst you are surfing the web. Without a doubt, many computer users are interested in the promoted benefits because they do not need to make any input, which is why this program could be installed on thousands of operating systems and browsers. The application comes from the same category of such suspicious browser add-ons as Deal Slider, Offers4u, and Getdeal. These extensions are presented through official websites and do not pose any visible risks. Regardless, Windows security experts recommend that you act carefully and even delete WinDealist in order to avoid any potentially undesirable activity.
The biggest flaw that the suspicious WinDealist has is the ability to monitor your virtual activity. Whilst some computer users may think that this is something which may help the developers of the add-on to present you with more useful and interesting online deals, others may recognize the risk right away. Since the displayed deals are mostly supported by third parties, there is a strong reason to believe that they could access information collected by the plugin’s tools. Web cookies, beacons and similar technologies could be used to track your activity, determine your IP address, similar information, reveal search history and your Bookmarked items. Having this data leaked is not what you should allow.
Even if the program cannot disclose your personally identifiable information you should keep data regarding your browsing activity secure as well. If you are not careful enough soon you could be presented with ads which correspond to your personal browsing habits. This is something which may lure you into clicking on more presented in-text, pop-up and banner advertisements. Unfortunately, some of these could link you to not so trustworthy sites. In fact, it has been discovered that certain WinDealist adverts and coupons could be used to route you to corrupted websites.

These will assist you with the removal of the undesirable browser plugin.
