Is it normal to see GreenGame ads in my search results?

If you have just installed this program on your computer, then there is no surprise that Green Game ads are interrupting you. No matter how safe it looks, this program has already been added to adware category, which can be translated into an “ad-supported.” Unfortunately, but the appearance of these ads is not the end. Beware that you may start suffering from redirects to sponsored websites when having this potentially unwanted program on your computer. Green Game redirect may end up on a suspicious sponsored website, so we highly recommend avoiding such activity. Besides, this adware may track your browsing activity and may collect information related to your searches. Typically, adware, browser hijackers, and similar PUPs are interested in people’s search terms, mostly visited websites and other browsing-related data. However, they can also be capable of knowing people’s email addresses, their computers’ IP address, and location. This information is not personal, and it can hardly be used for identity theft and similar crimes, but there is no guarantee that third parties will not use it for the distribution of their spam.
