PicZoomer Removal Guide

Do you know what PicZoomer is?

PicZoomer is a program that is meant to help you capture and manage images. Although this program does work, there is at least one reason why you might choose to remove it from your operating system. It was found by our malware researchers that this suspicious application can show advertisements created by unknown parties, and this is the reason we classify it as a potentially unwanted program. If you understand the risks of encountering unpredictable online ads, you can go ahead and use the removal guide below to delete PicZoomer. If you do not understand why it could be dangerous to interact with the ads associated with unfamiliar parties, you need to read this report.

PicZoomer Ltd. is listed as the creator of PicZoomer, but there is a possibility that a different company hides behind this name. In fact, many unnamed companies might hide behind this seemingly useful program. The Privacy Policy, which you can review at piczoomer.net/privacy.html, discloses that third party associates can collect information about you and use the PUP to introduce you to attractive ads. The fact that third-party advertisers are not revealed forces us to consider even the most horrendous scenarios. For example, if PicZoomer was associated with schemers – which could happen by accident – the ads shown to you could be malicious! Hopefully, this is not something you will have to deal with, but this is something we cannot brush under the rug when discussing the removal of PicZoomer.PicZoomer Removal GuidePicZoomer screenshot
