Do you know what AppToU is?
If you have downloaded AppToU application on your system, you will definitely notice extensions added to your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers. It is not a very harmful program; however, it is very probable that it is not going to act as promised. It means that you will not be able to compare the best deals as well as get discounts and promotions on different shopping websites like ebay.com, amazon.com, and bestbuy.com. Instead, you might notice commercial ads that will promote various products and services. This might seem rather useful from the first sight; however, you should know that such an activity might bother you and even cause security problems.AppToU screenshot

It is not very likely that you will be able to download AppToU from its official website because the download is not working there at the time of writing. This suggests only one thing – AppToU is distributed bundled with other applications. As the previous experience shows, plenty of advertising-supported applications tend to be attached to freeware, i.e. programs that can be downloaded for free. In most cases, you will be informed about the installation of additional software; however, people do not pay enough attention to the installation wizard nowadays and the creators of undesirable programs know that. Our advice is to complete the wizard carefully and always select the Advanced option that will allow you to choose what to install.
