Remarkit

If you are used to highlighting the text you’re reading with a marker on a sheet of paper, perhaps you would be thrilled at the idea that the same can be applied to the text online. Remarkit is a kind of browser plug-in that offers you to highlight the most important information on the web-text, and then even share it via Twitter or Facebook social networks. It is similar to such add-ons as BestMarkit, BetterMarkit and Re-Markable. However, due to various security risks associated with Remarkit, computer specialists advise removing the plug-in from your browser as it might prevent potential system threats from entering your PC.

You can access the home page for this plugin at re-markit.co. This is the excerpt for the information provided on the website:

AVANCED TEXT MANAGEMENT
IT’S REMARKABLE
Re-Markit offers text magnification for easy viewing and the ability to store all highlighted text, allowing you to manage marked texts and search for them later on.

There you should also be able to download Remarkit and install it onto your browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer). However, that does not seem to be the case as the download server is often unavailable. Nevertheless, the plug-in still manages to find its way into our systems, and that usually happens via bundled downloads.

In such a case, you need to be attentive when you install new applications on your PC, especially if you have downloaded them from third party file hosting web pages. Such shareware applications are often bundled with additional freeware you neither need nor want. What is more, these additional applications in the long run might prove to be detrimental to your system’s security. Thus, if you do not want Remarkit on your computer, remove it at once.

The most troublesome part about this plug-in is its privacy policy and its attitude towards third party content. It says that Remarkit may use “third party services to provide you with the Services and to serve you with advertisements”. However, in case the third parties were involved into any data collection practices, these practices would be out of Remarkit’s “control and you are advised to contact them directly for more information about their own privacy policies”.

In other words, Remarkit washes its hands clean of any third party content that would cause system instability. Naturally, Remarkit is not a computer infection and you should not panic if this plug-in suddenly appears on your browser out of nowhere, but you should remain cautious in case you notice any pop-up advertisements being displayed via this plug-in.

In order to ensure your system’s security, scan your computer with SpyHunter free scanner and then remove Remarkit from your browser. Do what you must to protect your PC from harm.
