What is Best Offers?
The Best Offers (or BestOffers) browser add-on promises to enhance users' Internet browsing experience by displaying coupon ads when visiting online shopping websites and allowing access to play premium online games. While such functionality may seem legitimate, Internet users should be aware that the Best Offers add-on is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application. This plugin infiltrates browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) through free software downloads using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling'. It also causes diminished browser performance and intrusive ads. At time of research, this potentially unwanted program (PUP) was distributed using the Install Brain free software download client.
After successful infiltration, Best Offers generates coupon ads and full screen pop-up ads, and moreover, this plugin tracks users' Internet browsing activity by recording websites visited, search terms entered on search engines, clicks on social media pages, IP addresses, full URLs of web pages visited, operating systems, and other information. Computer users who observe BestOffers coupon ads and Zula games ads when surfing the Internet have Internet browsers infiltrated with Best Offers adware. You are advised to eliminate this software from your computer.

When downloading free software, check each step and decline installation of any promoted browser plug-ins. Internet users who observe Best Offers ads whilst surfing the Internet should use this removal guide to eliminate this adware from their computers.
