ConsumerInput is a potentially unwanted application that works and spreads in dubious ways to put it mildly. Often questionable applications like ConsumerInput may seem as not detrimental. But, in fact, ambiguous applications could turn out to be harmful because it is almost impossible to determine the way they would act.

Once ConsumerInput gets onto your operating system it will install browser extensions to Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. These extensions are used mostly to track your online activity. The information gathered includes your most visited websites, search terms, products that you buy online, various information that you enter into forms, the materials you download or upload. Also, the Privacy document hosted within the website states that information gathered may include sensitive data such as financial and health information. Furthermore, this data is shared with third-party associates of ConsumerInput. Sharing information about your online activity with dubious third-parties might not be detrimental but sharing sensitive data that includes information about your finances could be extremely dangerous. We cannot be sure who the associates of ConsumerInput are, but it does not rule out the possibility that cybercriminals could be involved even without publishers’ knowledge. Thus, it is quite obvious why we urge you to remove ConsumerInput ASAP.

Most often bundled software is hosted within dubious download websites. In order to reduce the risk of getting exposed to installers filed with questionable software, you ought to run a trustworthy antimalware tool as it can detect and remove malicious installers and other potential virtual threats.
It is important to remove ConsumerInput because it could be very harmful given the evidence above. In order to remove ConsumerInput you should follow the instructions provided. Removal via Control Panel is effective and does the trick. But some leftovers might still remain on your system.
