ShopSafe

What is ShopSafe?

ShopSafe is an adware web browser extension that will display various popup and banner ads as well as modify the user's web browser search and home page settings. In some cases, the program will monitor a user's behavior and will inject rival advertisements over existing one or just inject new ones all together.

As part of the installation process the publisher may offer changes to your Internet Browser settings. These changes if approved by you can be reconfigured by you at any time from the options dialog available on your Internet Browser. Such changes may include the following:
- The homepage of your Internet Browser
- The default search engine in your Internet Browser's built-in search box
- The page displayed when opening a new tab
