Video-Saver is similar to a number of adware applications from Lyrics family. It uses Crossrider engine and in order to generate commercial advertisements, Video-Saver connects to giw.mapopen.net adware server. It means that the application does not select the content for pop-ups on its own, so to speak. It also implies that if you get redirected to potentially corrupted websites via commercial pop-ups, Video-Saver is not the one to blame, because the application cannot and does not review all the third party content that gets embedded into Video-Saver ads.
What is more, the application is known to be directly associated with Jollywallet adware application. It is obvious; because Jollywallet banner is displayed at the top of certain commercial websites when Video-Saver extension is installed on your default browser (Video-Saver is compatible with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox).
