PriceZilla is advertised as a sleek, streamlined application that aims to satisfy the needs of its clients. It is claimed that the app can offer accurate suggestions for best prices and offers. Its advertisement campaign claims that the program can show products with lower prices in different stores, or similar products with supposedly great deals. However, the developers deceive users into thinking that this program is somehow affiliated with major retailers. Our research has shown that that is not true. Indeed the program does not have access to product data bases, and merely displays random advertisements.
You ought to remove PriceZilla, because the advertisements it promotes come from various third parties. Sure, its website states that potential clients must undergo a scrupulous selection process for their ads to be advertized by PriceZilla. However, this is not entirely true, because the company grants its clients full control over their advertisements and allows the clients to modify them. This is a huge problem, because they might reprogram the application to display fake content, which could infect your computer with malicious programs that could severely jeopardize you system’s security. In addition to that, PriceZilla has the ability to gather information about the user’s browsing habits. For example, it might collect information such as IP addresses and browsing and search history. So you should definitely remove this program.
The malicious app has its own website at Getpricezilla.com from which it can be downloaded for Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox.

Your PC might be infected with malware that could be very difficult to remove. In addition, PriceZilla could gather information about your browsing habits, which is a blatant violation of privacy.
