Even though FREEzeFrog is classified as adware, it can also function as a keylogger and this feature of the program can pose great danger to the security of your sensitive information. If you download and install FREEzeFrog onto your computer, it might be possible that a third party can record and see every single thing that you type. It is a very cunning application, because it pretends to be a legitimate program that should pose no danger to your computer at all, but that is very far from truth.
FREEzeFrog records your browsing habits and Google searches, and then displays various advertisements based on the content of your previous browsing. These advertisements reach you from a remote server and so it implies that FREEzeFrog can connect to the internet on its own and take over your bandwidth, especially if there are a lot of ads displayed. As a result, the program can easily make your computer run slower. Not to mention that it can also steal your personal information of financial nature.
This program can arrive at your system through various websites, as it is being promoted as „handy open-source software you need to make your online life a little easier”. Usually FREEzeFrog comes bundled with such popular programs as VLC Media Player, Pidgin, 7zip or OpenOffice. Therefore, you need to check what you are installing all the time. During the installation, you need to agree to FREEzeFrog’s terms of service, and even by clicking “Next” you allow the program to “show you labeled advertisements in a separate browser window on a temporary slider”, based on your browser keywords.
If you got infected by this adware, you probably weren’t careful enough about what you were installing. Remove FREEzeFrog from your computer, before it slows your machine down too much, or before it hauls a more serious infection your way. It might be difficult to get rid of the program on your own, especially if you do not know exactly how your computer system works, so do not hesitate to invest in a reliable security program that will scan your system and delete all the components of FREEzeFrog automatically. Just do not wait until it is too late to do anything about it.
