Remove Customer Promos ads (Tutorial)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Adware

Customer Promos (developed by SuperWeb LLC) is identified as an ad-supported software, assigned to the ‘potentially unwanted programs’ (PUPs) group. This program is an intrusive computer parasite that hardly has any use. Users who have accidentally installed this software claim that it delivers various e-shopping offers including discount codes, price comparisons, coupons, and similar deals. Unfortunately, they have also noticed that the majority of these offers are fake and misleading. Obviously, they want to remove this dubious adware software from their computer quite soon after installing it.

How does Customer Promos work?

When Customer Promos app enters the computer, it adds an extension to your web browsers (all of them). Then it starts to supervise your activity on the web, collecting some required information to find out what your interests are. It seeks to obtain such information about you or your computer:

  • IP address;
  • geolocation of your device;
  • websites visited;
  • search queries entered.

After it gathers the aforementioned information, it routs out targeted advertisements from its server and sends them to you. According to the developers of this software, these ads by Customer Promos might be “displayed to as you use your browsers, including, without limitation, banner and video ads, in-text ads, and links, web browsing-related ads, interstitial, transitional, search, and full page ads.

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.

    Customer Promos ads are too annoying… They also bring false content, they do not provide real shopping deals. How do they expect to make computer users keep this program on their computers? It makes an impression that it is some advertising virus or something like that.
