What is BuyAndBrowse?

BuyAndBrowse is a potentially computer security threat that is labeled as an adware application.

Where does BuyAndBrowse come from?

As mentioned above, BuyAndBrowse comes bundled with other freeware applications. This program does not have a direct distribution source because there is no official website that would provide information on this program. In fact, even if it had an official homepage, it is highly probable that it would not have a direct download link. We can say that because other programs from the same group, like RealDeal, Cheap4all, RocketCoupon, and so on, could not be downloaded from their official websites.

Just like other similar programs that have been distributed in the same fashion, BuyAndBrowse is based on the JustPlugIt engine. It might also be called the semi-random name adware because the application might randomly capitalize its name upon the installation. That is a feature common to all the programs from the Multiplug family. Another common thing is that they are usually distributed by the InstallRex installer (and sometimes Amonetize or Vittalia).

What does BuyAndBrowse do?

BuyAndBrowse has one important task it has to accomplish. The program must collect information on your web browsing. It needs to know what sites you visit and what you usually search for online. This information is collected via tracking cookies, and later on it is used to generate BuyAndBrowse ads. These ads often contain links and promotional taglines and are related to your likes and preferences in one way or the other.

This increases the possibility of you clicking BuyAndBrowse ads, but any security-minded user would know that this is a bad idea. There is no way to ensure that the links embedded in the BuyAndBrowse ads lead to secure websites. They might as well redirect you to online marketing surveys or web pages that distribute adware. You also should not rule out the possibility of getting infected with a Trojan or a fake antivirus program through BuyAndBrowse ads. Hence, it is for the best to remove BuyAndBrowse and everything related to it from your PC.

How do I remove BuyAndBrowse?

Open your Control Panel and uninstall BuyAndBrowse manually. If the extension is still there on your browser, delete it through the browser’s settings. Finally, do not forget to terminate other unwanted applications that might have entered your computer together with BuyAndBrowse. Only this way will you be able to completely ensure your system’s safety.
