Do you know what BetterMarkit is?
BetterMarkit is a tool which, as it claims, integrates highlighting, search, and sharing functions into your browser. As it states on its official website bettermarkit.net, you will be able to highlight text in any website, share highlighted text through social networking websites, search for related text using such search engines as Google, Wikipedia, and Bing as well as light-up selected text while darkening the rest. At first, it looks like a very useful tool; however, you should definitely be careful because it tends to show various advertisements and collect information related to your browsing habits. If you do not wish to see any promotions, you should remove BetterMarkit from your computer. Other solutions are less effective because this program works on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, which means that switching the browser is not very useful.
As you might have already understood, BetterMarkit is going to show you banners, pop-ups, pop-unders, coupons, comparison, in-line text, and display ads after the installation onto your computer. You should not trust these advertisements and definitely not click on them because you might be redirected to the websites whose content is malicious. As BetterMarkit states in its Terms of Service, it is not liable or responsible for the content of third parties which means that you use it at your own risk and responsibility. As it is not safe keeping BetterMarkit on your system and especially clicking on all those advertisements, we recommend that you remove it entirely from your computer.
