What is Jollywallet?
Jollywallet is a browser plug-in created by Radyoos Media Ltd. It promises to save users money whilst shopping online (by recouping a percentage of any money spent).
This browser add-on is not technically a computer virus or related to malware infections, however, computer users have recently reported that Jollywallet was installed on their computers without their consent. Many also complain that they feel annoyed by pop-ups ads generated by this browser add-on and prefer to shop online without the imposition of these offers.
Unwilling or inadvertent installations such as these may occur as a result of Jollywallet's use of a deceptive marketing method called bundling. Commonly, Internet users inadvertently install browser extensions such as these together with free software downloaded from the Internet.
Today, many download websites and freeware developers use so-called 'installers' or 'download clients' to monetize their free services - when installing free software, they offer installation of additional promoted software, browser toolbars, or plug-ins.
To avoid unwilling installation of Jollywallet and other potentially unwanted software, always closely inspect each freeware installation step, opting-out of any additional installations and disallowing any suggested changes to your browser homepage, default search engine settings, etc.
Whilst Jollywallet is not malware, it can be categorized as adware due to the deceptive promotion techniques employed. If you feel that Jollywallet was installed on your Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla FireFox) without your consent, use the removal guide provided to eliminate unwanted ads when visiting online shopping websites.
To avoid adware or PUP (potentially unwanted program) installation in the future, only visit legitimate websites for your freeware downloads and always select the 'Custom Installation' option, rather than 'Typical Install', when installing any free software (this allows you to opt-out of additional software installation).
