Infolinks description

Infolinks is an online advertising network, which offers various products in a form of underlined ads, banner ads and other forms of ads. It claims that Infolinks promotional content can be placed only on websites that agree to cooperate with this program. Web ads usually have a text on the ad, stating where do these ads come from (what is the provider of the ad). You can recognize Infolinks ads easily because they might be named as "ads by Infolinks," "brought to you by Infolinks" or "Infolinks deals." However, we are not so sure about this. Infolinks claims that it is not a software, and you might encounter these ads only on particular websites, but we could hardly find any list of Infolinks's affiliates. This is kind of suspicious; moreover, we have investigated Infolinks Privacy Policy and discovered that this monetization platform advertises third-party websites, plus, collects some information about your browsing activity:

"You should note that Infolinks discloses automatically collected and other aggregated non-personally-identifiable information (including without limitation, geolocation and user device identification) with interested third parties to enable and assist such third parties to target ads to websites on which our advertising products are enabled [...]

When you visit any of the websites that participate in our advertising marketplace and view ads from our advertisers, we collect information, including technical information and usage information about your activities on such sites. Such information may be combined with information collected from other sources [...]

Infolinks is not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites not owned or controlled by Infolinks [...]

As you can see, Infolinks shares information about you with its affiliates in order to deliver targeted advertising to you. We want to warn you that some of Infolinks ads might be unsafe and lead you to suspicious third-party websites. Infolinks claims that it is not liable for any damages you may experience while visiting its partners' websites. To make sure you avoid suspicious websites and dangers that might be hidden on them, avoid clicking on unreliable ads that pop up on your screen in an intrusive way.

Infolinks official website

Is Infolinks considered to be adware?

As the official developer claims, Infolinks is NOT a program, and you can see its content only on websites that choose to post Infolinks content on their websites. That is why we cannot label Infolinks as adware. However, if you are suspicious about this company or if you see pop-up ads that come NOT from Infolinks, you might want to scan your PC with an anti-spyware software (for example, you can use SpyHunter (Windows) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac) and find out if you haven't installed some suspicious ad-supported programs on it.

How can ad-supported programs be installed on my PC without my knowledge?

As we have said, InfoLinks doesn't infect computers. It starts showing its in-text ads or banners only on websites that are to this company. These ads are NOT malicious, and they are not powered by an adware software. However, we still would like to share some tips with you how you can prevent installing any other adware without your knowledge:

  • You need to start monitoring installation of any freeware and select only Custom or Advanced installation option in the installation setup.
  • Once you do that, make sure you uncheck all checkboxes that agree with the installation of suspicious browser add-ons, extensions and plugins.

We have also provided a manual adware removal guide on page 2.
