Moreover, LolyKey is often incorporated with other adware in freeware packages, and users may unknowingly install adware via the 'Typical' or 'Expres' option.

The LolyKey adware serves as a monetization tool for adware developers that earn affiliate marketing commission by displaying ads in your web browser. The LolyKey adware can use its browser integration to read your online history, preferred web resources, and your IP address. The information gathered by the LolyKey can be sent back to its servers for analysis, and you may receive targeted advertisements in your web browser that may take the form of banners, context, and transitional commercials. Additionally, security researchers note that the official website of LolyKey can be connected to other adware such as InstallCore and DomaIQ via its IP address. Needless to say, ads by LolyKey may direct you to visit unsafe online resources where your security could be compromised. You should keep in mind that you can install a credible anti-spyware utility that can clean your computer and help you avoid cyber threats and Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs).
