What is HaggleDazzle?
According to the developers, HaggleDazzle saves time and money when shopping online - "Use the HaggleDazzle browser add on and start shopping today without hurting your budget. It’s the complete online shopping tool that gives you the ultimate advantage of comparing the nest deals, discounts, and promotions from all your favourite online shopping sites."
Initially, this app may seem useful, however, HaggleDazzle is classed as adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The reasons for these negative associations are: stealth installation without users' consent, display of intrusive online advertisements, and user/system information recording.
Advertisements generated by this adware include pop-up, coupon, and price comparison ads. These are displayed using a 'virtual layer', and therefore, none originate from the users' visited websites. Third party advertisements conceal underlying web content, thereby significantly diminishing the Internet browsing experience.
Furthermore, some redirect to malicious sites containing infectious content - clicking them might lead to high-risk adware or malware infections. HaggleDazzle also collects various Internet browsing-related data including geo-location, Internet service provider, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, etc.
This data may seem insignificant, however, some of this information can include personally identifiable details that are later shared with third parties (who can misuse them to generate revenue). This behavior can result in serious privacy issues or even identity theft. Uninstall HaggleDazzle immediately.
There are many rogue apps with identical behavior to HaggleDazzle including, for instance, Palmodeal, Cartt, and RecommendationBox - these also claim to enable identical features. Such fake promises are simply attempts to give the impression of legitimacy.
Rather than providing the functionality promised, adware-type applications display intrusive online advertisements and collect personally identifiable information - their purpose is to generate revenue for the developers.
How did HaggleDazzle install on my computer?
HaggleDazzle is usually distributed as a 'bundle' with other applications. Research shows that many users rush when downloading and installing software, and therefore, developers hide this PUP within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings.
By carelessly rushing these processes and skipping most steps, users install rogue applications inadvertently. In doing so, they compromise their privacy and expose their systems to risk of further infection.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
The key to computer safety is caution. Only by paying close attention during the download and installation processes can you protect your system. Choose the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings and closely analyze each step. In addition, decline all offers to download or install additional programs - most bundled applications are rogue.
