PricePeep is a potentially unwanted program, which belongs to the category of 'adware'. Once it gets inside the system, it starts interrupting your Internet sessions with its commercial advertisements that appear in a web browser, pop-up windows and toolbar. In most of the cases, PricePeep tends to show up on such websites as eBay and Amazon, and offers information about various coupons, discounts and similar offers. Be aware about one thing: if you see such pop-up ads titled with 'Shop and Save with PricePeep!', you shouldn't think that the site is hacked. In reality, PricePeep has infiltrated into YOUR computer and made itself comfortable there. However, it has been found to cause only a weak chaos on the system and hasn't been found to spread viruses.
PricePeep can be downloaded from its official website. However, such programs are also actively distributed in a bundle with various unpaid programs and shareware. That's why we always recommend paying attention to the components list, optional installs and similar things when installing software. Once you see something that is not familiar, uncheck it. As soon as PricePeep gets inside the system, it may become an unwanted application as soon as it starts running. The reason of that is really simple – it bombards you with its continuous pop-up advertisements.
If you have installed PricePeep on your computer by yourself and don't want to keep this program anymore, try these steps:
You can remove PricePeep automatically with a help of one of these programs: SpyHunter, STOPzilla, Malwarebytes Anti Malware. We recommend these applications because they can easily delete potentially unwanted programs and viruses with all their files and registry entries that are related to them.

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.
Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.
