What is Remarkit?

Remarkit is a program created by Revizer Technologies Ltd. claiming to enhance users' Internet browsing experience by integrating text highlighting, search, and share functions with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. While such functionality may seem legitimate, computer users should be aware that Remarkit is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application. Developers of this program use a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling', thus, most computer users install this program inadvertently without their consent.

After successful infiltration, this software generates various intrusive third party ads including, for example, banner ads, pop-ups, and in-text advertisements. Furthermore, this adware tracks users' Internet browsing activity by recording IP addresses, browser types, locations, operating systems, web addresses of pages visited, and other information. In fact, Remarkit adds not real value - its main purpose is to generate revenue from delivering intrusive online ads. The presence of Remarkit on your system can lead to malware infections and privacy issues, and therefore, you are advised to eliminate this potentially unwanted program from your computer.
