What is Price Finder?

Price Finder is a browser extension developed by Pronto LLC. It claims to help Internet users save time and money whilst shopping online by displaying coupon ads. Whilst such added functionality may seem legitimate, many Internet users refer to Price Finder as a virus or malware. Such negative associations are made since this browser plugin installs on users' Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) without their consent together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Technically, this browser add-on is not a virus, however, it is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application. The application diminishes Internet browser performance and can cause privacy issues. A common source of these potentially unwanted applications are 'download clients' (small programs used by free software download websites), which employ deceptive methods in order to trick Internet users into installing their promoted browser add-ons together with the chosen freeware.

Price Finder

Computer users should be aware that some freeware download websites use download clients, which hide the 'decline' button (a button used to opt-out of installation of promoted browser plugins), or disallow selected software download unless the user chooses to install an advertised plugin. Price Finder is not malware, however, it causes intrusive coupon ads when visiting online shopping websites such as Amazon, Walmart, etc., and therefore, you are advised to eliminate it from your Internet browser/s.

Price Finder is similar to other adware distributed using free software downloads. Examples include ZenDeals and GreyGray amongst many others. These browser extensions add little or no value for Internet users and cause intrusive coupon ads. Moreover, these plugins install on users' Internet browsers without their consent. The best way to avoid installation of these potentially unwanted applications is to pay close attention when downloading free software. Where possible, download freeware directly from the developer's website, or when using free software download websites, closely inspect each download process step and ensure that you decline installation of any 'bundled' browser add-ons. If you observe Price Finder coupons and deals advertisements when browsing the Internet, use the removal guide provided to eliminate this adware from your computer.
