FoTest is a browser application that may appear as a Browser Helper Object in Internet Explorer, an extension in Google Chrome, or as an add-on in Mozilla Firefox. The FoTest software is deployed bundled with free application installers to ensure its distribution. You can notice FoTest advertised as a helping hand in your shopping activities, but you might be interested to know that it is deemed by security researchers as adware. The FoTest adware may use its integration with your web browser to read your bookmarks and online history in order to determine what type of marketing materials may attract you. The FoTest software functions as a marketing engine that may push pop-ups, banners, coupons and special offers inside your browser. Adware developers have created the FoTest software to generate revenue from your clicks on the ads pushed by their application. The helpful shopping features of the FoTest adware might not be to your liking, and you might want to remove it with the services of a reputable anti-spyware tool.
