SaveNewApp is a browser add-on categorized as adware because once installed, it will start displaying various ads and pop-ups without your permission.
What Is SaveNewAppz?
SaveNewAppz claims to be a program offering competitive prices by displaying coupons and discounts on popular websites you browse through. For example, if you browse on Amazon, it will start advertising coupons of items that you have been looking at.
This feature does sound appealing indeed as it offers you to chop off the price of goods you wish to buy anyway. The problems you will, however, gain via SaveNewAppz far outweigh its positives, which is why the add-on is considered a potentially unwanted program (PUP).
So What Makes SaveNewAppz a PUP?
Upon installation, SaveNewAppz appears as an add-on to your browser and may change its settings without your permission. Then, while you are browsing, it will start displaying various pop-ups that you may find quite annoying. What’s worse is that by clicking on any of these ads, you may expose your system at risk as none of the websites associated with these ads have been verified by SaveNewAppz. They may be corrupted and could infect your system as well.
As typical adware, SaveNewAppz has the capacity to monitor, collect and send personal and browsing data to third parties to boost targeted advertising. In other words, while you are surfing online, this piece of software will be “watching” your moves and will be recording them along with other personal data such as IP address, emails, usernames, etc., and will then share it with advertising agencies.
Another feature that makes SaveNewAppz a PUP is the way it enters your system. As with most adware programs, this one could also end up on your PC via free programs you have downloaded from the Web.
Bundling is a legal method of distributing adware through free programs because you are given an option to opt out of it during the installation process. The option is, however, rather unclearly presented, so most users fail to spot it in order to disallow the bundling. That is why it is of utmost importance that you never click “next” without reading carefully what you are agreeing to. Make sure you always select the “custom” options to ensure your peace of mind.
Should You Remove SaveNewAppz?
Although adware is considered safe in most cases, some adware programs may have rather unwanted features that turn them into PUPs. That is the case with SaveNewAppz – it tracks your online activities and collects your personal data to share it later with third parties.
We, therefore, recommend you to remove SaveNewAppz from your computer.
Keep in mind that the manual removal requires a more in-depth knowledge about this PUP because if not completed properly, SaveNewAppz may continue to display annoying ads even after its removal. It’s best to use a legitimate anti-malware tool to complete the removal successfully.
