What is ViewPassword?

ViewPassword is an web browser advertisement injection extension that is designed with the core purpose of delivering ads to the user's web browser. Ads are in the form of banners (both static and videos) as well as context-hyper links. This adware is mostly bundled with 3rd party download managers that include a number of additional offers, all potentially unwanted programs (PUPs).

Ads which are delivered by this adware 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 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.
