Surf And Keep addon
Surf And Keep addon is something you should be wary of, especially if you download a program from a third party website. If you are about to download a licensed program NOT from its official webpage, chances are that the file will be bundled with additional freeware. Surf And Keep addon is that kind of freeware application that is usually attached to a number of installer files, and users are not even informed about the application being installed on their computers. You can remove Surf And Keep addon manually, but afterwards it is highly recommended to scan your computer for other potentially unwanted applications.
According to security researchers, Surf And Keep addon usually comes with a download manager that inserts the application into the browser. This add-on is compatible with all main browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome) and it resists being removed from your computer and your browser, which only proves the fact that Surf And Keep addon is a suspicious application. Thus, if you are going to install a licensed program, download it from its official website, because it is the best way to avoid potentially unwanted programs that might come bundled with it, especially if you choose to download the app from a third party website.
Once Surf And Keep addon gets installed on your browser, it will start displaying commercial pop-up ads. This plugin generally displays shopping deals, discount ads and coupons that are supposed to help you save money on your purchases online. Nevertheless, the pop-up ads displayed by Surf And Keep addon are highly questionable, because it is obvious that the add-on cannot generate the ads itself. Hence, it delves into a database of a third party advertising network, and because of that it can sometimes be exploited by malicious third parties to display ads with malicious content.
Although the main objective of Surf And Keep addon is to generate financial revenue to its creators and not infect you with malware, it is for the best to remove Surf And Keep addon from your PC right now. Take note that this application may also come bundled with such plugin as YouTube Adblocker, so it would be for the best to delete this application as well.
