Do you know what Demoney is?
A Google Chrome extension called Demoney is classified as an advertising-supported program because after installation it can display all kinds of advertisements, as well as modify search results of the search tool you use to show more ads. Without a doubt, it is best to delete this adware from your operating system immediately. If you do not understand why this is the best option, you probably do not understand the dangers associated with potentially misleading and unreliable advertisements. If you want to learn more about this, you definitely should continue reading this report. If you do, you will also find out how to remove Demoney in different ways. The comments section is also open for questions and discussions, and so if your questions are not answered in this report, you can add them.
In the past, Demoney was represented via defertank.com and the Chrome web store (the installer page:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/demoney/kllloaknkaplmddmkjiejbekliclelff). At the time of research, both sources were unreachable, and it is likely that the suspicious ad-supported program is no longer active. Nonetheless, we have to assume that third-party sources could be employed to spread this ad-supported extension and that new websites and Chrome installers could be created in the future. If Demoney is installed, you need to think how that happened. The chances are that you installed it along with third-party software that also could be unreliable or even malicious. It is important to figure this out before you do anything else, and we recommend installing a trustworthy malware scanner to quickly inspect your operating system and determine if you need to delete malicious threats. Hopefully, you can focus on the suspicious advertising-supported program alone.
According to the information presented by the authors of Demoney, this extension can show you how to invest money for a quick return. The extension, allegedly, should expose you to various “internet businesses.” Our research team has found that this add-on is most likely to be used for advertising services. Ads could be displayed on the websites you visit, in the search results, and new pages or tabs when browsing the web. Interacting with advertisements is risky business because you do not know the parties representing them. As you might already know, advertisements are used more and more frequently by parties who are working to spread malware or expose users to scams. Unfortunately, the most dangerous ads could look harmless, which is why it is crucial to stay cautious at all times. If you have interacted with any suspicious ads, and you suspect that you might have let in malware or jeopardized your virtual security in any way, scanning the operating system is crucial. It is also a good idea to change logins to the most sensitive accounts after you delete Demoney.
It is most likely that you want to delete Demoney from your operating system if you are reading this report, and so the last thing to figure out is how to do it. Can you remove it manually? We are sure that you can, and if you follow the instructions below, you will learn how to do it yourself. But is that a good idea? You should spend your time on manual removal only if the ad-supported extension is the only threat, or if you are 100% sure that you can eliminate them yourself as well. If you have to use an automated malware removal tool for the malicious treats active on your PC, you can leave it up to it to get rid of Demoney as well. After all, it is not a reliable piece of software you can trust.
