DoughGo

What is DoughGo?

DoughGois an ad-supported (also known as adware) web browser plugin that displays advertisements such as coupon ads in the browser that are displayed on web pages that are not associated with the plugin or would not otherwise appear. When the plugin recognizes that the end user has visited a partner site it will show all available offers for that partner in a slider visible in the top right hand portion of the browser. Clicking on any of the offers within the slider will result in a redirect that will drop affiliate cookies on to the end user computer and resolve the end user to the advertiser page/offer. Additionally, the plugin will communicate with its remote server to track and report browsing habits that include URLs visited, domains accessed, advertisements displayed and clicked on as well as information about the user's location and PC details.
