Bizrate is a potentially unwanted application, which promises for its users to help to compare product prices when shopping online. However, as soon as it is installed, this program starts interrupting its users with different kinds of pop-up ads and alerts that report about different kinds of deals and coupons. Besides, sometime it sneaks inside the system in a bundle with freeware and shareware without an appropriate user's permission asked. Of course, it is not as dangerous as computer virus, such as rogue anti-spyware or ransomware. However, it clearly notifies on its License Agreement that it tracks its users what may lead you to privacy related problems, such as identity theft and similar. Security experts recommend eliminating Bizrate from the system.
