What is Wallet Protector Extension?

Wallet Protector Extension is an unreliable browser extension that may introduce users to untrustworthy third-party advertising content. At the moment of writing it can work only on Mozilla Firefox; therefore, it should not be encountered by users who browse with different applications. Plus, it looks like the program and its descriptions are available only in German, so there is even less chance to come across it. Nonetheless, if you installed Wallet Protector Extension, we encourage you to review our report and get to know it better, especially if you have doubts whether it would be good or not to leave the application installed. Further, in the article, we will explain why our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com do not advise it, and if you decide to follow this advice, we can also offer the removal instructions available at the end of the article.test

Where does Wallet Protector Extension come from?

For starters, users should know Wallet Protector Extension falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or PUPs. One of the reasons the application receives such classification is the fact it might be distributed through bundled software installers that users could find on unreliable file-sharing web pages. In fact, our researchers believe, the PUP could be bundled with other similarly suspicious software, for example, adware, browser hijackers, and so on. Thus, if this is how you may have received this extension, it might be a good idea to scan the system and see if there are no possible threats on it. Besides a system scan, it would be advisable to stay away from various file-sharing websites to avoid malicious bundled installers and pay close attention to the information on the configuration wizard to have a chance to uncheck bundled applications you do not need.

How does Wallet Protector Extension work?

Once the PUP is installed the user should see it among the list of Mozilla Firefox extensions. What’s more, if the user likes to shop online, Wallet Protector Extension might start showing advertisements from the PUP’s third-party partners. No doubt, such content could offer cheap deals and other tempting suggestions. However, no matter how tempting they look it might be best to learn where the presented advertisements may lead you and search the Internet to find out if the website you could end up after clicking the ad can be trusted. Naturally, the application’s Privacy Policy document is written in German too, but our researchers translated and found a part saying the mentioned paper does not extend to third-party links and offers, which might mean there are no reassurances about such content’s reliability or safety. In other words, if you decide to use Wallet Protector Extension’s offers, you should make sure they advertise harmless content on your own.

Firstly, you could get rid of it through the browser’s settings; the process is not particularly difficult, but in case you need any help, we prepared removal instructions available at the end of this paragraph.
