What is Best Price Ninja?

The Best Price Ninja browser extension is presented as a great tool to save time and money while shopping online - "Best Price Ninja helps you get live price comparison with the products you are viewing online. We cover hundreds of millions of products from dozens of online merchants. simply go to your favorite online store, search for your desired product and Bestprice Ninja will locate a better deal for you." This add-on may seem legitimate and useful, however, Best Price Ninja is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware. There are a number of reasons for these negative associations. Firstly, stealth installation - Best Price Ninja installs on systems and infiltrates Internet browsers without users' consent. Furthermore, this app tracks browsing activity and displays intrusive online advertisements.

Best Price Ninja adware

Best Price Ninja employs a virtual layer to display advertisements such as coupons, banners, and price comparison ads. The virtual layer allows developers of bogus apps to display any graphical content even though it does not originate from the visited website. In some instances, ads are opened in new browser tabs/windows. After clicking them, users are commonly redirected to commercial webpages such as online stores or websites offering certain services. There is also a chance that users will be redirected to rogue sites containing infectious content, thereby potentially leading to further computer infections. Best Price Ninja collects information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (to determine geographic locations), search queries entered into search engines, websites visited, pages viewed, and other information that can contain personally identifiable details. This information is later shared with third parties and may be misused to generate revenue. Therefore, the presence of Best Price Ninja on your system can cause serious privacy issues. If you are concerned about your privacy and Internet browsing safety, uninstall Best Price Ninja immediately.

Best Price Ninja Privacy Policy regarding information sharing:

For example, the Company may share User’s information in order to provide Users with certain content which the Company or other third parties may think will be of interest to the User (such content may be provided either by the Company or by other third parties at its choice).

There are many adware-type apps offering identical features to Best Price Ninja. For example, Deal Barium, Linkey Deals, Great Find, and PriceChomper. Adware-type applications mostly claim to enable features to significantly improve the Internet browsing experience, however, these fake promises are used to give the impression of legitimate software and to trick users into installation. Apps such as Best Price Ninja provide no real value for the user - their purpose is to display advertisements and collect personally identifiable information to generate revenue for the developers.

How did Best Price Ninja install on my computer?

As with other regular adware, Best Price Ninja is often distributed using the 'bundling' method - stealth installation of third party apps together with regular software. Research shows that most users do not express enough caution when downloading and installing software and are unaware that rogue applications such as Best Price Ninja are concealed within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options. Many users skip steps of this procedure and inadvertently install bogus applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

There are two main steps you should take to avoid installation of bogus apps. Firstly, be attentive when downloading software - each step of the download process should be closely analyzed to ensure that no additional programs are included. Furthermore, installation of downloaded programs should be performed with the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options, rather than 'Quick' or 'Typical' - this will reveal any third party software listed for installation and allow you to opt-out.
