The Shoppy browser software may appear as an add-on in Mozilla Firefox, an extension in Google Chrome, or as a Browser Helper Object on Internet Explorer. Shoppy is promoted as a valuable helper to online shoppers that seek special deals and low prices. The Shoppy browser extension is deemed as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) with adware functionality because it is used as advertisement platform by vendors to push numerous marketing materials in their web browsers. The Shoppy browser add-on can be found accompanying freeware bundles as extra software when you use the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' option during installation. The Shoppy extension may use your browsing history to determine your online habits and display targeted content inside pop-ups, coupon windows, and banners. You may want to remove the Shoppy browser software because it will cover your browsing surface and impair your web surfing.
