What is InfoTrigger?

InfoTrigger is an web browser advertisement extension that delivers ads to the user's web browser. Ads are in the form of traditional banners as well as context-hyper links. Ads delivered are injected on any web page the software decides to include it on and not just those affiliated with the software or its affiliates. The ads are not affiliated nor endorsed by the underlying websites on which they appear. The program periodically connects with its remote servers to download new ad feeds and will report back the domains and URLs the user visits as well as the links and advertisements the user clicks on while browsing the web. This adware is mostly bundled with 3rd party download managers that include a number of additional offers, all potentially unwanted programs.

"This ad-supported dock sits right below the search bar on your favorite websites, showcasing results for popular sites like YouTube, Twitter, and eBay, right inside your browser."
