'Ads by Man' is a curiously named adware browser add-on. This browser add-on is compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. 'Ads by Man' is distributed through the commonly employed practice of bundling. In most cases, the inclusion of additional content is not explicitly stated, misleading users into downloading and installing potentially unwanted programs. Being an adware, 'Ads by Man' relies on the element of surprise in order to infiltrate a system. Once part of your browser(s), 'Ads by Man' will start displaying annoying advertisements whenever you surf the web. What is more, this browser plugin will gather data on your browsing habits and tailor the advertisements to your tastes. While a standard practice, some users may feel uncomfortable with their browsing data being in the hands of third parties. The ads themselves may affect your computer performance, slowing down and even crashing the browser. What is more, the advertisements may redirect you to malicious websites, potentially exposing your computer to risk. If you encounter 'Ads by Man' on your computer, take immediate action to remove it.
