NoMore ads – application that should help you to block various advertisements on your web browser. However, it is not effective and once installed will display various advertisements on your web browser by itself. Here is application description at their official website at http://nomorreads.info/index.html:

“It is not easy to deal with pop- ups. Sometimes, even if you have closed one, another one pops up. The process can go on and on until you lose interest in opening a site. If you dont want to encounter this problem again, download NoMore Ads. You will literally say goodbye to these ads once this software is in place.”

These words are not true at all – it’s just a trick to make you believe that it is useful application and downloaded it. After all, you can found valid browser add-ons called “AdBlocker” on your browsers’ default extension list. NoMore ads works as a browser add-on that can be added to all most popular web browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. It is not capable to operate on Apple OSX, so Mac users shouldn’t worry about it. Those ads displayed by NoMore ads can be displayed in all kinds of forms, such as pop-up, pop-under, in-text and banner ads. You should know that all those ads come from third parties that are sponsoring NoMore ads application and it is not a secret that most of those third parties are various cyber criminals, such as hackers and scammers. If you click on one of those ads, you will be immediately redirected to third parties websites that may be infected and cause some sort of harm to your computer or you can even get scammed if you attempt to purchase something on one of those websites. NoMore ads gets paid for every click you make on those ads. That’s why they are trying to build as big audience as possible and convince everyone that it is an useful application.
