Do you know what Palmodeal is?
Palmodeal is an ad-supported program designed to promote merchandise featured on a website called www.palmodeal.com. However, the implications surrounding this program suggest that you should remove it as Palmodeal’s advertisements are very annoying and untrustworthy. From the very outset it must be mentioned that this program comes as an extension supported by Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. The extension for Chrome and Firefox goes by the name of Shoppr, but we will refer to it as Palmodeal, since that is its official name. So if you are seeing unasked-for advertisements, then we recommend checking your browser’s list of extensions for this program’s presence. We will try to present you with the most relevant information about this program that is currently available, so if you are interested, please continue reading.
Let us begin by talking a bit about this program’s origins. As mentioned, Palmodeal is dedicated to promoting content featured on a website by the same name. So it can be said that this website’s owners are also the owners of this particular adware. Its developers are unknown at this point, but they are of little significance. Currently, you can only get Palmodeal from its dedicated download website at Ext.palmodeal.com. However, our researchers suggest that it may also be bundled in the future, so if you got this program from somewhere else, please let us know in the comments section below.Palmodeal screenshot

Palmodeal promotional slogan is “Beast deals in the palm of your hand.” Furthermore, its deownload website states that “Our extension if build for you.Build to help you more things by the lowest prices.Build to bring you enjoyment from shopping.” Clearly, the people who built this extension are very unprofessional, since they did not even check this website for grammatical errors. This program’s developers are in it for the easy money that comes from online advertising. The website Palmodeal.com features products that are sold on other online retailers, such as Thebuilderdepot.com, Balsamhill.com, and many others. These are legitimate websites that probably do not even know that they are given free advertising. However, we assume that some of those promoted websites indeed pay for Palmodeal’s services in an effort to get ahead of the competition.
However, those websites have to compete with big industry names such as Amazon, Ebay, BestBuy, and so on. Our researchers have found that this program is set to display advertisements on the aforementioned websites. Its ads will be displayed as coupons, banners, and pop-ups, among other forms of advertising. These ads may prove to be annoying and unreliable as they may promote misleading content from shady online retailers. Palmodeal’s developers have to make money somehow and legitimate retailers never use services this program offers.
Palmodeal may not appear to be malicious at first, but we do not recommend trusting it. Its shady origins give this program away and it may promote illegitimate online retailers. Therefore, we invite you to remove this program from your browser as soon as the opportunity arises. You do not need to uninstall it via Control Panel. All you have to do is remove Palmodeal’s browser extension, and after you have done that, you can once again enjoy ad-free browsing.

In non-techie terms:
