Celebrity Alert functions like a browser extension and is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer web browsers. It is very likely that users have no idea where Celebrity Alert Ads came from because they did not notice how this adware application entered their computers. This is a very common scenario because adware programs generally get distributed bundled with freeware. Even if Celebrity Alert has its own official homepage, it is very unlikely that computer users download this application directly. Since users often complain about Celebrity Alert Ads, we can assume that this application travels with a list of similar applications.

Despite the fact that Celebrity Alert may indeed let you know about the latest celebrity gossip, this program needs to support itself somehow, and it does that by displaying commercial ads. Celebrity Alert Ads often are related to your most recent web searches because adware applications collect information on your web browsing habits. If Celebrity Alert Ads are related to your likes and preferences, there is a bigger chance that you will click them. Consequently, clicking any of the Celebrity Alert Ad leads to an affiliated website, and you help them make money by generating user traffic.

It is not an illegal activity, but you have to take into consideration the fact that Celebrity Alert Ads might get exploited by a malevolent third party. After all, adware programs like Celebrity Alert do not check whether the content embedded in their ads is reliable. Such applications often state that third-party content is not subject to their privacy policy. Therefore, your computer security is in your own hands, and you can protect your system from potential threats by terminating Celebrity Alert Ads immediately.
