What is SafeFinder?

SafeFinder is a malware program/PUP. This potentially unwanted program is malicious and intrusive and manages to sneak its way into your computer and cause a number of issues that affects performance and privacy. The first issue you'll be faced with is the never-ending flood of pop-up and banner ads as you try to browse the web. Each time you attempt to go online, the adware pop-ups will constantly display in the browser, aside from being extremely annoying, the ads are also highly risky. Their continuous appearance leads to frequent system crashes and a slower computer performance. Furthermore, since the advertisements are also highly unreliable, if you click on them, all you'll have to show for it is more malware getting installed on your computer because the ads are distributed through shady ad networks that use malvertising techniques. But that’s not even the worst part of having SafeFinder running in your computer. While it is running, its is sending detailed information about your web browsing habits to remote ad servers. This information includes your location, the IP addresses you visit, the domains you visit and what your interests are.
