UAB DIGIMA

WeSaver4U is yet another malicious application that is listed as an adware and a PUP (potentially unwanted program) due to several unwanted attributes. Even though it is described as a useful and powerful tool that will help you to save your time and money when browsing online by displaying various deals, coupons and commercial offers right on your web browser, this is not quite true. Yes, it is correct that this application will display various offers to purchase something, but that will not bring any benefits for you. First of all, those offers are displayed in an annoying manner of advertisements. That’s why this application is listed as an adware. They appear randomly, from time to time and that is really disturbing. They can be displayed as pop-up, pop-under, in-text or banner ads. A new tab or a window on your web browser can be displayed as well.

Usually those deals appear on e-commerce websites, such as eBay or Amazon and offer you to purchase some particular goods at a better price rate. However, you should not believe that, because most of the time those ads are fake. It’s just a trick to get your attention and make you click on one of them. If you do so, 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 there. To avoid this, you should not click on any of those ads. WeSaver4U is closely affiliated with various third parties, they get sponsored for displaying their advertisements.

The problem is that WeSaver4You does not administrate or moderate its partners’ content in any way and that means everyone may promote their products through this advertising network. It is not a secret that various cyber criminals, such as hackers and scammers use this advertising network to reach you right on your web browser on a daily basis. It works as a browser add-on that can be added to all most popular web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. If you have a spare minute, pay a visit to their official website at http://wesaver4u.info. Take a look at their Privacy Policy, you will find some interesting facts there. Look at the section called “Data Collection” and “Data Usage”:

WeSaver4U

In a nutshell, this means that your personal information, such as browsing history, search queries, top visited websites, your IP or email addresses, even your geographic location will be recorded and transferred or sold to third parties. They adjust their ads according to the given data and this makes them more interesting and relevant to your browsing habits this way, so the possibility that you will click on one of those ads rises. It is the main goal of WeSaver4U, because the owners of it get paid for every click you make. Furthermore, if your information is sold to the third parties for marketing purposes, your incoming email box will be flooded with tons of spam letters. Even though WeSaver4U is not a dangerous virus that can cause a lot of trouble itself, it can lead you to some serious cyber security problems, therefore it needs to be removed as soon as possible.

If you can’t remember installing this application, it might be that it was installed behind your back. It is distributed bundled with other free software, such as PDF generators, media players or fake Flash updates that can be downloaded from the Internet for free. To avoid this happening, you should not download software from websites with a questionable reputation. However, if you have no other option, be very careful during the installation of freebies. Do not skip any steps and opt out for a custom or advanced install mode. Do not allow any additional software to be installed, because it possibly can be malware. Be very attentive and don’t rush, some of the most important information can be displayed in a tiniest font. In case it is too late and your computer is already infected – wait no more and take needed actions to remove it right now. You can do it either automatically or manually. We recommend performing this automatically because it is a more efficient and reliable way. Download a trustworthy anti-malware, such as SpyHunter, StopZilla or Malwarebytes. Scan your computer with it and it should automatically detect and remove the threat. If you want to perform this manually by yourself, simply follow our step-by-step WeSaver4You removal guide given below.
