FriendsChecker DescriptionFriendsChecker is adware that may be used to show a variety of random pop-up advertisements on the PC every time the computer user is surfing the Internet. FriendsChecker can be installed into Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. No matter which web browser FriendsChecker compromises, the computer user may have to cope with the same results. FriendsChecker may aim at making the PC user click on unwanted pop-up advertisements, which means that the computer user may get diverted to questionable websites involving FriendsChecker.com and, thus, increase traffic of the website. FriendsChecker may also make a profit from clicks on adverts. FriendsChecker may also unwillingly divert computer users to genuine websites that were hacked and put the computer system in danger. FriendsChecker may also result in privacy and security issues to the computer user. FriendsChecker may trace the PC user's surfing activity and transfer this information to third parties for targeted advertising intentions. FriendsChecker may result in even more issues connected not only with showing of unwanted pop-up advertisements on the PC, but also other computer problems that may occur after the PC user's confidential data is disclosed.
