Do you shop online frequently? If you do, you might be always looking for new tools to help you out. Maxi Buy might have come onto the radar when you browsed the web, and since this application is free, you might have decided to try it out. If you are still considering this, we suggest looking for a different tool if you want a better online shopping experience. If you have installed the extension already, you should consider deleting it. Why? According to our research team, the extension does not offer beneficial services, and so there are more disadvantages to using it than there are advantages. At the moment, the extension works only on Google Chrome; however, according to the information presented on the official installation website (maxi-buy.kreativcdn.net/us/install), it should be compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Safari browsers as well. Regardless of which browser the add-on was installed on, we suggest that you remove Maxi Buy. You can learn the reasons why this is recommended by reading this report, but if you want to get rid of the PUP – which stands for “potentially unwanted program” – you can find a complete guide below.
Since Maxi Buy is currently compatible with Google Chrome only, there is a good chance that many users acquire it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/maxi-buy/glfmbnjhfdnblpgihgcflmnjbpoaegna. According to the information supporting the installer, the extension can display the “best offers and deals” and help you “discover new retail opportunities.” It is stated that if you install the PUP and then visit a shopping page or website, you will be automatically provided with the products you are interested in at better prices. Needless to say, a promise to help save money is bound to attract some people, and so it is not surprising that the PUP has already been downloaded over 9,000 times from the Chrome web store alone. Did you use a different download source? This is highly possible, and, unfortunately, it is possible that you have downloaded the PUP along with more malicious programs. Install a legitimate malware scanner, and you will learn soon enough if you need to erase other threats from your operating system. Of course, if you face other threats, it is smart to research them to see which ones are the most dangerous. Without a doubt, you want to delete the most dangerous ones first.
If you install Maxi Buy, it can read and even change your data on the websites you visit, which means that it can successfully deliver advertisements based on what you are searching and viewing. If the PUP finds ads, it should display them in a pop-up on the right-top corner of the webpage. If you click it, you are redirected to a third-party website that, allegedly, can offer the same product at a better price. You must be very careful about the sites you are redirected to because they could be unreliable. The good news is that Maxi Buy does not record personally identifiable information, which means that, at least, your identity is safe. That being said, your browsing history, search keywords, and information about your browser can be recorded and used to introduce you to advertisements. Our analysis of the PUP has revealed that it could also deliver ads using your search engine. Needless to say, the extension can be disruptive, and since we cannot guarantee that the sites it routes to can be trusted, you might be considering the removal of this add-on.
As discussed earlier, Maxi Buy should be compatible with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari browsers, and although the PUP currently works on Chrome only, the removal instructions below show how to eliminate it from all three web browsers. If you have questions regarding the process, do not hesitate to post a comment below. Unfortunately, it is possible that other threats or PUPs exist on your operating system. If that is the case, you might want to use a tool that can simultaneously find and delete Maxi Buy along with all other existing threats. A reliable anti-malware application can take care of that. We also recommend installing it for the protection. You need it if you want to avoid letting in PUPs and more serious malware into your operating system in the future.
