- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
- Installs itself without permissions
Even though the advertisement supported extension Dealfox is not currently available from deal-fox.com, it does not mean that the distribution of this application has been terminated. In fact, more and more Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users find it installed. Unfortunately, they cannot explain where the application has come from and they do not know how it operates. Even if the plugin is represented as a regular plugin, it can track your virtual activity using the installed web cookies. This is not a reliable feature if the application has been installed without permission. These are the few reasons why you should delete Dealfox.
The mischievous Dealfox uses the reputation of authentic and popular services to camouflage itself. Even though the name of the extension may suggest that it corresponds to the services represented at dealfox.com.au, deal-fox.co.uk or dealfox.gr, we can assure that it does not. Dealfox is a program which is in no way related to these services. In fact, the developer of the extension is Smart Apps, also known as Appealing Apps, Enchanted Apps or 215 Apps. Are you surprised that the name of the developer may change? It certainly is suspicious, and so it is a signal that the extension cannot be trusted.
Besides flooding your browsers with seemingly irremovable pop-up and banner ads, Dealfox can connect to the Internet without permission and even inject a code into Windows autostart.
