Text Enhance is a browser plug-in that can also be categorized as adware. It belongs to text-enhance.com website that offers intext advertising service. Advertisers and publishers can sign up on Text Enhance website to display their advertisements on specific blogs and web pages. The links are embedded into the text on some particular keyword, when if you move your mouse curse towards that word, you will trigger an advertisement to appear.
Text Enhance is not dangerous, but a lot of users have complained that these links appeared on their blogs and journals even though they did not sign up for the service. The users claimed the links to be annoying. The official website for Text Enhance, however, says if you see the links being displayed even if you did not sign up for the service, it means that the website is offering you the service itself, or a piece of software in your computer is responsible for that.
This is why we warn the users to be careful of advertisements displayed by Text Enhance. Since it's a browser plug-in, the extension should be up for download on the official website, but the page does not offer any kind of file for download. Therefore, it could be possible that malicious third parties are using Text Enhance to display suspicious advertisements that are dangerous to your computer.
