AppToU is a free browser add-on that will help you to find the best deals, discounts, promotions, and compare them. Unfortunately, it is definitely not as useful as it claims to be because it is going to display various kinds of advertisements as well. This program is, of course, not a very serious threat; however, you will soon notice that these commercials do not allow you to browse the web without any interruptions. It means that you will have to spend more time searching for the information and just browsing the web. AppToU itself is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. These are the browsers widely used in the world, which suggests that AppToU has been published to affect numerous computers.

Thus, you should definitely not believe any of those promises of AppToU because this software is not as innocent as it claims. If it happens that you really notice any of those commercials, you should better ignore them and definitely not click on any of them. We understand that you might wonder why; thus, we are ready to explain you. Firstly, you might have already noticed that you are redirected to another website when you click on the ad, which suggests that you might come across malicious components that might be hiding in the unknown website. We cannot say that all the websites are dangerous; however, you should still be extremely cautious.

You can detect another suspicious feature of AppToU if you read the Privacy Policy. The information provided there states that Log Data, which might include IP address, browser type, and browser version, will be collected. In addition, they are also interested in the pages that you visit, the date of visiting them, the time you spend on them, and other statistics. Cookies are used to collect all this data. However, if you feel that it is unacceptable, you should definitely erase AppToU from the system. It will only take several minutes, but you will be able to enjoy your privacy again.

If you have decided to delete AppToU entirely from your PC, you need to know that it adds extensions to all of your main browsers, which is why it is not enough to erase it via Control Panel. If you feel that this removal process is too difficult, you should know that you can erase the program automatically. As you might have already understood, you will have to acquire a reliable tool. We recommend using SpyHunter because it will also protect your system in the future.
