Kingdom Extension – what kind of program it is?

Kingdom Extension is a terrible program that can be installed on your computer system without your consent. If Kingdom Extension app enters your system, you can expect to experience system slowdowns, and also you can expect to receive an excessive amount of ads each time you use your Internet browser. Kingdom Extension is deemed to be an adware program, and it seeks to promote affiliate marketing.

If Kingdom Extension adware enters the computer system, it immediately initiates several arbitrary changes on your system. First of all, it affects all of your web browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and others) by installing an obscure extension. The Kingdom Extension extension can track your activity on the Internet, plus, it can connect to your Internet connection, reach its servers and select targeted ads for you. Kingdom Extension PUP can display very attractive ads because it gathers information about your browsing experience – what websites do you visit the most, what data do you enter into search fields, what is your computer geolocation and so on. All this information helps to understand what are your needs.

Questions about Kingdom Extension ads

As a result, Kingdom Extension displays catchy ads, but you should not think that it is safe to click on them. As much as we know, Kingdom Extension collaborates with questionable third-party companies, and Kingdom Extension functions to generate web traffic to the websites that belong to these firms. Besides, some of the Kingdom Extension redirects might end you up on malicious websites, and you might unintentionally install a dangerous program to your computer. We recommend securing your computer before that happens. To remove Kingdom Extension adware from your system and to prevent installing other infectious programs, security vendors recommend to install and keep a reliable anti-malware software on your computer. One of the most popular and trustworthy anti-malware apps is called Reimage.

How did Kingdom Extension hijack my system?

Kingdom Extension can be installed alongside other freeware or shareware if the user does not pay enough attention to the installation process. This distribution method is named ‘bundling.’ This is what usually happens: the user downloads a program, and only clicks the “Next” button till the end of setup. You should NOT behave like that, because if you ever happen to download a software bundle, be aware of the fact that there will be no clear signs about optional apps attached to your selected program. To get to know whether your selected app contains such dubious ‘attachments,’ you need to opt out Default/Standard installation mode and opt for Advanced/Custom one. In the further setup window, you need to deselect each suggestion to get optional apps for free. However, if Kingdom Extension virus has already hijacked your system, you might want to remove it to get rid of its annoying ads. In such case, continue reading on page 2.
