See Similar is a potentially unwanted application (PUP), which should be installed on computer only if you are not against annoying ads, redirects to sponsored sites and similar activities. Besides, we think that we should warn you about bundling, which had been used for spreading this PUP around. If you have just discovered this program on your machine, please, read the following information:

What is SeeSimilar?

See Similar claims to be a shopping helper that can be installed on the system together with other software. No matter that it informs you that it is capable of helping you to improve your browsing experience, we have to warn you about unwanted activities that are usually caused by this program. People who have used it for finding deals report about continuous redirections to shopping websites when visiting Amazon, Walmart, and similar sites. From the first glance, it may look like See Similar adware is trying to show you those sites that are filled with great deals and are selling items for less. However, we haven't found a person who saved a dollar with the help of this program. Besides, it can also make you visit totally misleading websites that seek only to increase the number of their visitors. Finally, for getting more knowledge about its clients, See Similar may hijack all of your web browsers and may collect their search terms, mostly visited sites and information, which is added there.
