The HighDP browser application is built using the Crossrider toolkit to enable its cross-browser functionality that is promoted to provide high-quality videos on the Internet. The HighDP software may attach an add-on, a Browser Helper Object or a browser extension depending on what the browsers you have installed on your PC. The HighDP browser application is perceived by security researchers as adware because it might inject advertisements on the websites you preview. Adware developers created HighDP to display ads, pop-ups, banners and in-text hyperlinks that upon clicks generate pay-per-click revenue for them. The HighDP software acts like a personal ad network that may provide you with potentially harmful content. The HighDP adware may arrive in your system by bundling with freeware installers that you operated via the 'Express' or 'Typical' option. The HighDP adware may collect information on your browsing history and engaged content that could be used to generate custom-made ads. If you detect the HighDP adware on your PC, you might want to remove it with the services of a trustworthy anti-spyware tool.
