Superfish Window Shopper
According to superfish.com, Superfish Window Shopper is a browser add-on which helps you find relevant items online while you are browsing online shops. The add-on is available at superfish.com; unfortunately, many users complain that they have found this application unexpectedly, which means that they have probably installed a free program to which installer Superfish Window Shopper was attached.
When you browse various online stores in different countries, the browser contains a “See Similar” icon. If you click on the icon, Superfish Window Shopper displays deals or advertisments similar to the item you have searched for. It is also stated that the application works on the most popular browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome, from which you should remove the unwanted add-on.
Superfish Window Shopper can provide you with its offers while you are on Amazon, Shopzilla, PriceGrabber, Ebay, and other websites. It may also occur that you will be offered to use coupons or other services. After clicking on the offer, you will be redirected to the partner’s or the so-called advertiser’s website, which will set its cookies onto your PC.
Not surprisingly, while having or using Superfish Windows Shopper, you will be monitored. Without it, Window Shopper Beta would not be able to list various items related to your interests. What Superfish collects is non-personal information such as IP address, the URLs of the pages you visit, and any other information related to you search.
