What is SurveyMeta?

SurveyMeta is a recently published application that should be removed from the system as soon as possible because it is known to be an advertising-supported (adware) program. Unfortunately, users who download this program themselves usually do not know that SurveyMeta falls into this category. In fact, many users believe that they can earn some money because this program promises to provide them with online surveys and says that people will “get paid for taking surveys.” You should not trust this program because you will definitely not earn extra money with its help. To be honest, this application will not act beneficially at all. Therefore, it would be really clever to remove this adware from the system. We are sure that you will find and install a more trustworthy program instead of it and will not miss SurveyMeta at all.testtest

How does SurveyMeta work?

Even though this program promises to act very beneficially, the truth is that it will redirect users to only. Of course, it will do that in its own window (the modified Internet Explorer window), so it might seem at first sight that it has an interface and is going to act in a useful way. Unfortunately, it seems that this adware will cause redirections to different web pages from time to time. You will find offers, ads, and other content there. As SurveyMeta is an advertising-supported application, you might not only be redirected to web pages that belong to third parties, but might also start seeing various offers, coupons, and commercials promoting a variety of products. In case you see them, ignore them all because clicking on them might be hazardous.

Luckily, SurveyMeta will not collect sensitive data like other adware programs; however, there is still no doubt that it is interested in the so-called anonymous user data. It is said in the Privacy Policy available on that it needs this data in order to enhance the experience of visitors and Internet analysis primarily. In addition, it might also share data with interested third parties. Yes, this adware is closely associated with other third-party companies. It collaborates with them in order to serve advertisements. In case of personally-identifiable information, SurveyMeta promises not to record any personal details. In addition, it says that it will keep them in a safe place. Unfortunately, nobody knows whether third-party websites you will be redirected to are really not interested in personal information. Therefore, we suggest being very careful.

Users who do not notice and click on the shortcut of SurveyMeta might not even know for a long time that this ad-supported program is installed on their systems; however, those who are more experienced usually notice that a new folder has been created in %PROGRAMFILES% (%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%). In addition, they tend to come across new registry keys in the system registry. Last but not least, many users also notice that a new item is added in the Start menu. If you do not like those changes and want everything to get back to normal, you need to eliminate an advertising-supported application from the system.
