Do you know what Constant Fun is?
Constant Fun claims to be your personal shopping assistant that will find you the best deals for your desired items. However, our researchers determined it as adware, and it is a rather annoying one as it shows targeted pop-ups. Some could say that by showing ads it only does its work and helps users save some money. On the other hand, we have researched and tested this adware and so we can assure you that Constant Fun only generates revenue for its own creators. In other words, its creators never intended to make it as a helpful tool and neither do they care about the trouble you will get into. Constant Fun ads might redirect you to unreliable websites and so you can be exposed to cyber fraud. What’s more, this adware acts without your permission, it can download malware and infect your computer with it.

You can read about Constant Fun on its official website, but you cannot download it from there. So you might wonder, how could you get it? The most usual way for adware to spread is bundled software, which comes from third party websites, so you must always check if the website you are visiting is trustworthy. Our researchers have found that Constant Fun also enters your system with bundled software. In most cases you can deselect additional programs suggested to you in the installation wizard, but most of the users simply skip through installation steps, instead of reading them carefully.Constant Fun screenshot
