MegaOffers is a potentially unwanted program, meaning that we’re dealing with a program that antivirus tend to overlook and not consider it as malicious because it’s not a real virus. The “potentially unwanted” part on the name is because it usually gets to our systems in a quiet manner.
MegaOffers focuses on one main goal, to show ads while your browser the net, although at the same time it will spy on what you do and will save information about it.
These ads can be seen either as pop-ups, banners, fake ads on Google or blue/green keywords directly highlighted among the text of visited websites.
Usually those ads are tagged as Ads by MegaOffers or Powered by MegaOffers; most users only realize they have been infected when they start noticing those tags.
MegaOffers can also be considered a spyware because it collects data about what you do online, including visited websites, searches performed, saving all data about it to customize ads shown to you by MegaOffers, although they also save all that to sold it afterwards in huge databases.
MegaOffers is usually installed at the same time as some free software offered in freeware download platforms (such as softonic.com, eazel.com, soft32.com among others). Those websites create or modify install processes so they can add what they swear are virus free tools to the software you were looking for in the first place. Being as it this, nowadays installing a free software usually equals installing an adware. You can stop that from happening by checking with the most care every stage of the install process so you can reject anything optional being offered.
