On every website there can be a new threat, and this ruins your experience completely. From now on, each browsing session can be dangerous because you may click on an ad even accidentally. When this happens, you can be redirected to a webpage that is full of online infections, and these can include viruses and Trojans. Also, users have to know one thing – they are spied on. You know what this means? Various types of information, including your search history, can be recorded, used for marketing purposes (to generate more ads, of course), and even shared with third parties. Before any of your info ends up in the hand of people with bad intentions, delete BestAdBlocker.
