Websteroids is a browser add-on that produces numerous advertisements. The presence of this extension on your computer is not to be tolerated, so it is best to remove it. The program supposedly tries to provide users with the best online deals. It will offer you various coupons and discounts in the form of pop-up ads. Although this may seem useful, you must know that the developers of the browser extension are not responsible for the activities and reliability of the web pages. Whether you should choose to trust the pop-ups is completely up to you. If you do not want to risk landing on a harmful page, remove Websteroids from the computer immediately.
Websteroids can be attached to Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer. It is very likely that the program has been installed without your consent. This has most likely happened with the use of a free program you have downloaded from some suspicious source. It is common for adware and other unwanted applications to be bundled with freeware and installed automatically alongside it.
Once it has been installed, Websteroids will immediately start generating various pop-up ads regardless of what web page you are on. What is more, they will appear constantly without being prompted by the user. This means that they will interfere with your regular browsing. Also, there is no telling whether the contents of the ads is true or not. You may be transferred to a page with ill intentions. This is why you need to refrain from clicking on any of the pop-up ads. Eventually, you will end up on a malicious website. Such pages are very dangerous, and they will have dire consequences for your system’s security. Do not disclose any personal details on any pages before you have researched them. Websites managed by hackers can also be used to download viruses onto your PC. If this happens, all of your sensitive information will most likely be stolen. Then, cyber criminals will definitely empty out your bank accounts and max out your credit cards.
What makes Websteroids even more dangerous is the fact that it can collect various information on your browsing activities. It will gathers data such as the websites you visit, search queries, all of the links you click on, and information about your browser, operating system, and the PC’s specifications. All of this is used to present you with ads tailored to your interests. This only makes it more likely that you will click on some pop-up, which, in turn, will increase the chance to be transferred to a malicious web page. This is why you need to avoid all ads displayed by Websteroids and get rid of the browser extension at once.
