What is Kasimos?

The Kasimos browser add-on is developed by Super Web LLC. It displays coupon and deal ads when Internet users visit online shopping websites. This browser extension also claims to enhance users' Internet browsing experience by enabling multi-site searching and displaying website reviews. Such functionality may seem legitimate, however, many Internet users refer to Kasimos as a virus or malware. These negative associations are made since most computer users often install this browser plugin inadvertently without their consent together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Kasimos is distributed using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling', which uses 'download clients' - programs employed by free software download websites.

Technically, this add-on is not a virus or malware, however, Kasimos is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application. After successful infiltration, this browser add-on diminishes Internet browser performance, causes intrusive ads, and potentially serious privacy issues. A clear indication that your Internet browser is infected with Kasimos are "Powered by Kasimos", "Kasimos Ads", and "Kasimos deals" advertisements displayed when surfing the Internet.

Kasimos adware is similar (almost identical) to other potentially unwanted applications developed by Super Web LLC. Examples include Lucky Leap and Whilokii amongst many others. These are distributed using free software downloads and all cause unwanted ads. The best way to protect your Internet browser (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox) is to closely inspect each download and installation step of free software. If your download is managed by a download client, click the 'decline' button to avoid installation of any promoted browser add-ons, and when installing freeware, use the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' installation options - this will reveal any hidden installation options that you may wish to decline.
