Do you know what SharkShopper is?
SharkShopper is another program that you should not install if you want to minimize the risk of getting the computer infected. SharkShopper is based on the JustPlugIt browser add-on creation engine. This engine was used to create programs such as RightCoupon, RealDeal, and many other similar browser add-ons that are supposedly aimed at enhancing your shopping experience. The SharkShopper program is promoted as a tool that can help you save money by providing you with discounts and coupons; however, none of the offers displayed is reviewed or endorsed by SharkShopper. This is because SharkShopper does not endorse the sponsors, allowing cyber criminals to promote their deceptive websites alongside reputable service providers. If you have recently installed SharkShopper, it is time to remove it from your computer, but, if you are hesitating, continue reading to find out why you should not wait any longer.SharkShopper screenshot
