Webzoom Removal Guide

Do you know what Webzoom is?

Some people might think that Webzoom is a useful tool that can greatly enhance browsing experience. However, we do not share the same opinion. We at Spyware-Techie.com have concluded that this adware offers no functions that couldn’t be substituted by those the web browser already has. Hence, we think users should remove Webzoom without any hesitation, because this adware is primarily designed to promote certain advertisements created by third parties.

Web zoom is advertized as a useful browser extension that can zoom onto pictures and images that might be featured on a certain website. We do agree that the idea for an application like this is a very good one indeed. However, the application does offer a wide selection of ads that will keep you raging while you’re trying to zoom in on some interesting pictures.Webzoom Removal GuideWebzoom screenshot

Webzoom is advertised on its official website called webzoom.co, which does not provide a functioning download link. Nevertheless, the application has utilized another vehicle for distribution called bundling. Webzoom has been found to be bundled with Reg Clean Pro, RocketTab, VuuPC, YTDownloader, as well as other freeware. We warn users to be careful when installing any free applications and make sure to opt out the installation of additional software that might turn out to actually be adware.

The primary purpose of Webzoom is not to offer a useful function, but to display advertisements. It might utilize various methods to collect information about you in order to display tailored commercial content on your screen. Failure to remove Webzoom might subject your system to ads that might compromise its security. We urge users not to click on any adverts promoted by this adware, because it might redirect you to a dangerous website, which can potentially infect your system with all kinds of malware. It must be noted that the ads might come in the form of pop-ups, coupons, price comparisons, in-line texts, and so on.

The best precautionary option is to delete Webzoom altogether in order to prevent it from installing additional malicious content. It must be noted that the application might even install additional software such as search engine toolbars, though it might not ask for your consent to do it. More so, this adware is capable of detecting applications similar to it that might obstruct its functionality, and therefore interfere with their processes.

All in all, Webzoom is not worth keeping on your system no matter how great the functions that it offers seem to be. Its main function is to promote third-party websites that are not checked by the developers for malicious content. Thus, Webzoom might severely jeopardize your system’s security and health. Therefore, we encourage you to remove it as soon as possible.
