ConvertAd Removal Guide

Do you know what ConvertAd is?

ConvertAd is a computer application which can hamper your browsing sessions by providing you with various advertisements. It works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and can accompany you on basically any shopping website. If you have ConvertAd on the PC, you are probably aware that the content of the advertisements may vary, i.e., the advertisements may promote products and services that are not related to you browsing interests. If you are not satisfied with the advertisements, their content or the very fact that they are displayed, remove ConvertAd from the computer right now.

ConvertAd is not responsible for the content of the advertisements. Your computer may get infected or you may become a victim of identity theft but ConvertAd will not help you tackle the issue. ConvertAd may promote deceitful Flash Player, Internet browser updates and other questionable computer-related services. In order to update your programs, you should access the official websites instead of relying on third party software distributors. There are a lot of misleading websites which are aimed at making you install free programs instead of the one that is being promoted, and such websites are very often advertised by adware programs. The installers to which you are exposed by ConvertAd may promote various free programs, none of which may be worth using. Nevertheless, ConvertAd may advertise famous products. You may find web banners or pop-up ads inviting you to purchase something at discount; however, we recommend that you ignore all the pop-ups and remove ConvertAd from the PC.

The application may monitor your online behavior in order to determine your browsing patters. It may use various tracking techniques to record your search queries, clicks, impressions, the URLs of the websites that you browsers, the type of the browsers, etc. The information collected may be used for marketing and advertising purposes. Additionally, it may be shared with third parties. Bear in mind that adware programs may accidentally record some personally identifiable information, leading to spam emails and other adverse consequences.

Why should you risk your privacy when you can use the Internet safely? Implement a powerful spyware removal tool to have the unwanted application removed.
