- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
FindoPolis is an adware application that should not be allowed to remain on your computer. You are probably wondering why you are seeing so many pop-up advertisements when you enter online stores. The answer to that is FindoPolis, and other similar applications. Adware programs are developed and programmed to generate a series of commercial advertisements based on your web browsing history. It is important to remove FindoPolis from your computer before this program gets exploited by malevolent third parties in some online marketing scheme or even worse – it would be used to distribute malware.
Needless to say, that malware infection is a bit far-fetched consequence, but we should not take our chances. After all, FindoPolis is an unnecessary application that only slows down your browser by displaying a number of annoying pop-ups. We know exactly what to expect of FindoPolis, because this application is part of SuperWeb adware family. The common feature among these applications is that they have an official homepage (findopolis.net in this case), but the website is nothing but an empty shell. There is no direct download link available, which renders it impossible to download FindoPolis from official sources.
Thus, just like Okiitan, Laflurla, Cling Clang and other unwanted adware applications, FindoPolis is distributed bundled with freeware applications. In our case, FindoPolis arrived bundled with NewPlayer bundle via Tuguu SL installer. This installer offers a list of additional programs, such as Activeris AntiMalware, Pricemeter, MyPCBackUp and so on. Thus, FindoPolis is just part of a package that is supposed to help improve your computer and browser functions, but in reality it slows down your system and potentially exposes you to dangerous websites and malevolent third parties.
It is obvious that users install FindoPolis themselves, but they are not exactly aware of the fact. Either way, after the installation, FindoPolis adds extensions to Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. Take note, that the official website at findopolist.net claims that FindoPolis is compatible with Google Chrome as well, but it seems that the browser is immune to this adware application. Once the add-on is installed, whenever you access ebay.com, amazon.com, bestbuy.com and other online stores, you will see a lot of pop-up ads. FindoPolis will offer you to purchase the things you want at an optimal price, but think twice before you click any pop-up.
FindoPolis ads might be embedded with potentially corrupted third party content, and that is the main security issue associated with this adware application. Needless to say, that it can lead to serious computer security problems, so you must remove FindoPolis ASAP. To make a list of other programs that must be deleted from the system, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner. Uninstall unnecessary applications via Control panel and then invest in a powerful antimalware application to make sure your system is always protected from potential threats.
