Money Viking Ads Description

If your Web browser has been infiltrated by numerous ads labeled 'Money Viking Ads' or 'Ads by Money Viking' then it is very likely that you have adware installed on your computer. The adware in question goes by the name Money Viking, and the company responsible for its development and distribution is SuperWeb LLC. SuperWeb LLC is ill-famed because of its dubious software products, and many of the applications they develop may exhibit behavior typical to adware. The Money Viking app is also identified as adware and users who have it installed it on their PCs may experience some unwanted changes to their Web browser's behavior, the most notable of which will certainly be the unexpected display of numerous, unwanted ads.

Money Viking may be advertised as a useful utility that can help users save money and time while shopping online. Supposedly, Money Viking does this by providing users with information about the best coupons, discounts, and offers available in a broad range of online markets. However, Money Viking's offers may contain paid advertisements that may link to suspicious Web destinations or unreliable online stores. The Money Viking adware also may work in the background to collect potentially identifiable information regarding the targeted user's browsing habits and online activities. SuperWeb may provide the gathered data to third parties and use it for marketing purposes, so the privacy of users who have Money Viking installed may be at risk. The removal of Money Viking adware should be performed with the help of a reputable anti-malware product immediately.
