Do you know what Findizer is?
Findizer is an extension that is meant to help you save the products you are interested in using the same tool. If you are an avid online shopper, you must have shopping lists and wish lists full of different products that you are either saving money for or that you expect to go on sale.

This extension can be activated on Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer web browsers, and we suggest removing Findizer from all of them. Keep reading to learn why deleting this add-on is what we recommend.
Findizer.fr is not the only source representing this suspicious extension. Chrome users can acquire it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/application-findizer/apbbnlboenllhnddfpokmeeiinhhhmmc, and it is possible that third-party installers will be employed for the distribution of this adware as well. If you encounter third-party installers, you need to be extremely careful. In fact, we do not recommend interacting with unfamiliar installers at all, because there are many malicious installers that are used for the distribution of dangerous infections. If you suspect that malware was infiltrated along with Findizer, quickly install a malware scanner to inspect your operating system. Obviously, you should attend to more dangerous infections first. That does not mean that you can ignore the extension itself because it could be dangerous in a few ways. Did you know that Findizer is classified as an ad-supported program? This seemingly helpful add-on should help you manage your desired products, but it has been found injecting advertisements as well, and this could lead to risky situations.Findizer screenshot
