Do you know what InsightDating is?
Nobody can deny that InsightDating looks like a beneficial program that should work as it promises to. To be more specific, this program says that it will enable users to browse dating sites from their Desktops, so people expect that it will really act like that. Unfortunately, we have to upset you. Researchers who have tested InsightDating say that this program is a typical advertising-supported application whose primary aim is to cause redirections to third-party web pages and display advertisements. In other words, users should find another application for browsing dating web pages. Actually, there is no need to install software for doing that because all dating websites can be opened using a simple browser, e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc.
We do not recommend installing InsightDating on the system not only because it is useless, but also because it will cause redirections to other web pages, for example, it will take you to insightdating.com/redir.php before redirecting to dating web pages, e.g. matchseniors.com. In addition, it has been observed that this program will redirect users to lamphouseoffers.com/redirect.php?sid=BMS&message=Please%20wait. This usually happens once – immediately after this program is installed on the system. The purpose of opening this website is to provide you with offers, surveys, and other sponsored content. Unfortunately, this ad-supported program will not only cause redirections. It has been noticed that it might display commercials and open windows with ads too. Make sure you do not click on any of them because you might be taken to another web page with an untrustworthy content. The publisher of InsightDating is definitely not responsible for any harm these web pages might cause, which means that you surf them on your own risk. If you do not wish to become one of the victims of malware, we suggest ignoring ads and closing windows opened for you. Of course, this is not the best solution. To prevent undesirable software from slithering onto your computer, you should definitely remove InsightDating from your system.InsightDating screenshot
