Remove SaverFX ads (Removal Guide)

removal by Olivia Morelli - - | Type: Adware

SaverFX is a dubious ad-supported program, which falls into the adware category. Moreover, it is assigned to the potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) group. If you wonder why this program is classified like that, we recommend you to read this report on SaverFX and find that out.

What you should know about SaverFX ads:

If you have noticed various pop-up windows, banners that are injected in the websites that you visit, and in-text links that pop-up an ad once you roll the cursor over them, it indicates that your computer was infected with adware. To find out what kind of adware has attacked you, you need to look for a specific text above or beyond the ad that you see. For example, SaverFX ads are going to be labeled as “ads by SaverFX,” “SaverFX deals,” “powered by SaverFX,” “SaverFX ads” and similarly.

Be careful once you notice such ads. We want to warn you and say that SaverFX is nothing but a rogue app that tracks your browsing activity. This suspicious software obtains data like your IP address, PC geolocation, browsing history and search queries. Once it obtains such data, it starts to search for particular ads for you from its server. Do not be deceived by these ads – SaverFX is NOT functioning to find the best shopping deals for you. In reality, it only seeks to select catchy ads for you and convince you to click on them. It is also known that SaverFX PUP might send you pop-up windows with suggestions to fill a survey – do not fill them! Especially, do not reveal any information about yourself, if any of the SaverFX surveys asks you to. Remember that SaverFX collaborates with third-party companies and might share this information with them.

Questions about SaverFX ads

The reason you should avoid clicking on SaverFX ads is that they can redirect you to third-party websites. Such pages can be malicious sometimes! No one guarantees that you are going to be safe while browsing on such sites and that basically means that no one is going to be liable for any damage you might experience while surfing on these websites. Keep in mind that you might accidentally agree to install a dangerous software, which can affect your PC system badly. This is why we recommend getting rid of SaverFX as soon as possible. You should use a reputable uninstaller for that – try using Reimage.

How did SaverFX hijack my PC?

If you have no idea how SaverFX entered your system if you have never visited the official SaverFX page, then we assume that you might have installed this computer threat at the same time as you installed another free program to your PC. Sadly, SaverFX is spread in a shady distribution way called bundling, which allows to attach PUPs to legitimate freeware or shareware and spread them together.
Shortly said, the most important thing to do in order to prevent installing PUPs is to be very attentive when you download new software to your computer. You must install such programs carefully. Read the Terms of Use/Privacy Policy documents – look for hints about optional freeware added to your selected program. Next, adjust the installation settings. Opt for Advanced/Custom mode instead of the traditional Default/Basic/Standard ones. The setup then should provide another window with a list of suggestions to install optional freeware. Opt such suggestions out to refuse to install them.
