TakeShop Removal Guide

Do you know what TakeShop is?

TakeShop is a browser add-on based on the JustPlugIt platform, which has been discussed by our team multiple times. There are many identical programs built using this browser add-on creation engine, and all of them are categorized as adware. These programs, including TakeShop, display advertisements that are owned and controlled by third parties, and the creators of the programs are not liable for the content of the advertisements displayed. When installing TakeShop, or any similar program, it is important to get acquainted with the terms of use and privacy policy of the program so that no unwanted changes are made on your computer. In case you already have TakeShop on your PC, take action to remove it from the computer.

The TakeShop program may be employed by multiple unreliable third parties to promote their bogus services or products. For example, adware programs such as TakeShop are very often used to promote system scanners and updates for various software programs. If you need an update for your Internet browser, access its official website so that you get a reliable update. Software distributed by third-parties should not be trusted because, in addition to the update offered, you may be asked to install a handful of harmful programs.

Moreover, it is not enough to ignore TakeShop pop-ups, web banners, in-line advertisements, and other advertisements because TakeShop is programmed to monitor you. Like its counterparts, such as LuckyCoupon and Real Deal, TakeShop monitors your clicks, impressions, search terms, browsing history, and other actions. Moreover, the program automatically records the type of the browser, the IP address, and some other information regarding the settings of your browsers. This information is collected for the purpose of understanding your preferences; i.e., the data collected helps the developers of the program enhance the quality of the service and create new targeted advertisements. Moreover, the information collected may also be shared with third parties, which may find some other ways to use information about you. Our team strongly recommends that you remove TakeShop from your computer, because removal is the only safe way to minimize the risk of losing your personal information or getting directed to an unreliable program.
