The Presence of ShowPassword May Waste Your Time and Patience
The main symptoms of infections associated with ShowPassword include unwanted advertising material. Computer users have reported that, when visiting unrelated websites, some words in the website's text will have a double underline. When the cursor passes over one of these underlined words, a pop-up window containing potentially unreliable links or advertisements may appear on the affected Web browser. ShowPassword advertisements and pop-ups are used to promote various low quality websites associated with ShowPassword and similar content. ShowPassword pop-ups may contain links to sponsored Web pages. Clicking on ShowPassword links and advertisements creates revenue for the people responsible for ShowPassword pop-ups and advertisements. This revenue comes at the expense of computer users. ShowPassword advertisements expose your computer to potentially unsafe content and also waste your time through their constant redirects and interruptions. Because of this, ShowPassword advertisements and pop-ups should be treated as symptoms of potentially harmful intrusions on your computer that should be dealt with immediately.
