Where does Torpedo Deals come from?

However, since it has just two users and no rating or reviews, it is more believable that Torpedo Deals is being distributed through other channels as well. For instance, the potentially unwanted program could be promoted on suspicious pop ads that lead to its official website. What’s more, it might be spread with the help of bundled installers. You may find such setup files on unreliable file-sharing web pages, so if you happen to receive the tool this way, you might want to check the system if you did not download any other doubtful software accidentally.

How does Torpedo Deals work?

For now, Torpedo Deals works only on Google Chrome and as our specialists say it may change the browser’s start page or new tab page with The site might look harmless or even handy since it may have useful links for people who like to shop online, but keep it in mind that with time the potentially unwanted program might begin injecting annoying or even targeted advertisements. In its Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement (EULA) documents, the software’s developers claim they could collect information related to your browsing habits and share it with the third parties. Most likely such data would be used to determine what goods could interest you or for other marketing purposes.

As the EULA explains, the add-on might incorporate content or services provided by the third parties, “including advertisements, coupons, sponsored messages, photographs, graphics, deals, or other commercial offers.” The worst part is that no one reviews this content. It means some of it could advertise doubtful goods (e.g. other potentially unwanted applications, adware, and so on) or redirect you to malicious web pages. Thus, given Torpedo Deals could provide you with unreliable content, we advise you not to waste any time with it and eliminate it before anything goes wrong.
