What is Blazer Deals?

According to the developers (SuperWeb LLC), Blazer Deals is a legitimate browser extension that will improve the Internet browsing experience by enabling coupons, comparison shopping, and other similar features - "We're passionate about improving web by providing the best tools to enhance the browsing experience, from searching the web to comparing online deals to find the best prices. We've combined all of our great ideas into the Blazer Deals product suite, a FREE set of tools that work to make your browsing experience... better!" Initially, this functionality may seem useful, however, Blazer Deals is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware. There are a number of reasons for these negative associations: stealth installation, display of intrusive advertisements, and monitoring of Internet browsing activity.

Blazzer Deals adware

This application delivers various advertisement types including, for example, pop-up, banner, coupon, interstitial, transitional, full-page, and other similar ads. To achieve this, SuperWeb LLC employs a virtual layer, which allows placement of third party graphical content on any visited website. By displaying these advertisements, Blazer Deals significantly diminishes the Internet browsing experience, since they conceal underlying website content and users are forced to continually avoid clicking them. When clicked, the ads usually redirect to e-commerce websites (for example, online stores), however, they may also redirect to rogue websites containing infectious content. Thus, clicking them is dangerous and may lead to high-risk adware or malware infections. Furthermore, this application tracks Internet browsing activity and collects various system/user information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, websites visited pages viewed, search queries, etc. The recorded data may contain personally identifiable information, which the developers later share with third parties. Therefore, having Blazer Deals installed on your computer might result in serious privacy issues or even identity theft. For these reasons, we highly recommend that you uninstall Blazer Deals.

Blazer Deals Privacy Policy statement regarding data collection:

We only share or sell your non-public personal information with non-affiliated third parties when we believe doing so is permitted by you or authorized by this Privacy Policy. In addition, the Company may share your personal information with our parent, subsidiary or affiliate companies without restriction.

Blazer Deals is not the only browser add-on developed by this company. SuperWeb LLC has released hundreds of identical rogue applications including Wander Burst, Swift Record, and Giants Galaxy. Although these applications claim to provide useful features, they are useless to the user. Browser plug-ins developed by SuperWeb LLC are designed solely to generate revenue by displaying intrusive online advertisements and collecting personally identifiable information.

How did Blazer Deals install on my computer?

Blazer Deals, and other extensions developed by this company, are distributed using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling', and thus, usually infiltrate systems without users' permission. Bundling is stealth installation of additional applications with the chosen software. The developers are aware that users often lack caution when downloading and installing software - they exploit this shortcoming by hiding applications within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings. Many users rush the download and installation processes and skip most steps, including these settings, thereby inadvertently installing rogue applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Download your chosen software from a trusted source - usually the official website. If you are downloading from a freeware download website using a download manager, closely observe each step and decline all offers to install additional apps. Furthermore, downloaded software should be installed with the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options - this will reveal any concealed bogus applications listed for installation and enable you to cancel them.
