TightShoppers is an unreliable application that would like to make you believe that it is indeed a useful browser extension that can “get live price comparison with the products you are viewing online” and, of course, save you time and money. Unfortunately, we have tested this extension and found that it is simply an annoying adware program. However, the third-party ads, offers, and coupons this program may display on your screen are not only obstructing your view, but they may also be risky to click on. This adware may also spy on you and share the collected information with unreliable third parties. If you do not want to be the next online scam victim, you should not think twice before you remove TightShoppers. Since this useless extension may enter your computer along with other malware infections, you should be careful with using your computer until you clean all threats from your system.
The only official channel where you can download this application is the Chrome web store, chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tight-shoppers/beolekpdalambjckjpmejnndpfdnflgp?hl=en-US. We have not found any other promotional sites for this adware. But even this web store is not a guarantee that this extension is all reliable. Unfortunately, there may be hundreds of unreviewed and untested applications in this store. The statistics at the store show as “many” as 4 downloads so far, which cannot be called popular in any way. If you run a Google search on the Chrome ID (beolekpdalambjckjpmejnndpfdnflgp) of this tool, you may understand why no one really wants it. You may find a few articles among the results that are about removing TightShoppers as an adware. This should give you an idea about this application.
Another suspicious factor with regard to this application is that it may be found in freeware bundles. This again is bad news for you because these bundles may include other malware infections as well. The most likely passengers that travel in such malicious packages are Trojans, adware programs, browser hijackers, and, of course, potentially unwanted programs. If you let such a lot onto your computer, you may experience slow Internet connection and system performance before long as well as a crashing system after some time. You can download such bundles through unfamiliar file-sharing websites that host a number of annoying and also dangerous third-party ads. But it is also possible that your computer is infected with adware and that generates the corrupt advertisement for you. You should never click on third-party ads if you do not want to download potentially harmful bundles. Even more so, as adware programs can hijack normal advertisements and redirect you to malicious websites. That is also a reason why you should not tolerate the presence of such infections on your computer; you can never be safe going online if you are infected with adware. Therefore, you should remove TightShoppers right now and identify all other possibly danger factors while you are at it. Leaving any potential threats on your system could jeopardize the usual secure operation of your Windows operating system.
Although you may believe that you can save money by using this application, we must tell you what we found out. This adware may only show you affiliated parties' best offers and coupons and not the best available ones on the web. This adware can also gather data about you and your browsing activities, including your search keywords, your IP address, and more. Using this information, targeted advertisements can be sent to you. The problem is that cyber criminals can pose as third parties and this information can be shared with them, too. This enables schemers to trick you with relevant advertisements and offers to click on. The creator of the adware will be paid after each click, but the price you will pay is much worse. You may be redirected to malicious websites where you may disclose your banking details or your personal information, which can be used by criminals to commit online frauds and other crimes. We advise you not to click on any content that comes from this application. In fact, you should not keep it a moment longer on your computer. If you want this potential risk source gone, you should delete TightShoppers right away.
Since this application uses a browser extension through which it can display the advertisements, all you need to do is remove these extensions through the settings menu of your browsers. Although we have mostly seen Google Chrome browsers affected by this adware, it is equally possible to find versions to affect Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer as well. If you want to make sure that your computer does not get infected again, you should be more careful about surfing the web and clicking on potentially unsafe content, such as ads. The best way to protect your computer is, of course, to employ a trustworthy anti-malware program.
