Zoom Zoom removal instructions
What is Zoom Zoom?
Created by SuperWeb LLC, Zoom Zoom is presented as a legitimate browser add-on that enables various features such as coupons and comparison shopping to improve the Internet browsing experience. On initial inspection, this may seem legitimate and useful functionality, however, Zoom Zoom is classed as adware. Be aware that Zoom Zoom is distributed using a deceptive free software marketing method called 'bundling' - stealth installation of additional programs together with the chosen software. After installation on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox without users' consent, Zoom Zoom delivers various intrusive online advertisements including banner, coupon, search, interstitial, etc. These advertisements can lead to dubious websites containing infectious content.
Furthermore, Zoom Zoom tracks user-information by recording various software and hardware details that may be personally identifiable. For example: search queries entered, website URLs visited, pages viewed, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (to determine users' geographic locations), and unique identifier numbers. This behavior can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. Zoom Zoom is just one of many apps released by SuperWeb LLC. This company releases identical browser add-ons under different names to avoid detection by anti-spyware and anti-virus suites. Examples include Swift Record, Between Lines, and Roll Around. None of these add-ons are useful to the user - their purpose is to generate revenue by the display of intrusive ads and sharing collected data with third parties. For these reasons, you are strongly advised to eliminate Zoom Zoom from your system.
Most popular freeware download websites such as download.com, soft32.com, softonic.com, and many others, monetize their free services and traffic using small programs called 'download managers', which offer installation of advertised (according to the developers, '100% legitimate and virus-free') browser extensions or applications together with the chosen software. Despite these claims, most of the promoted apps are considered to be adware or malware. To avoid this situation, carefully inspect each step of the free software download procedure to ensure that no other applications are included. In addition, install downloaded applications using the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options - this will reveal any bundled applications listed for installation and allow you to uncheck them.
