Do you know what Albrechto is?
Albrechto is the browser extension which is promoted at albrechto.co and which can be installed on your Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome browsers. The suspicious browser plugin is known to be supported by third party advertisers, which is why almost immediately after the add-on is activated you should be able to notice advertisements flooding your screen. Squirrel Web, Bizzybolt, Glindorous, Buzzsearch, and tens other applications alike have been discovered to work together with third parties as well. It is recommended that you remove these just like you delete Albrechto from the system. In fact, all of these applications potentially could be presented by the same people, and so it is likely that all of them could be supported through online advertising.
Even though it is stated that the service of Albrechto is to provide you with better browsing experiences via the displayed saving deals and related search results, there is no doubt that the application is heavily supported through third party advertising.
