BoomCheap Ads Description

BoomCheap is regarded as a tool for your web browser that will allow you to save money and time during your online shopping. BoomCheap may appear as a browser extension to facilitate its functionality. BoomCheap usually comes embedded in freeware, and you will not notice it unless you use the 'Advanced' or 'Custom' option during the installation operation. BoomCheap is perceived as adware or Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) because it displays many ads, in-text advertisements, pop-ups and pop-unders. When you install BoomCheap, you might be giving permission to record information about your browsing activity in order to improve its product placement. BoomCheap may not be as helpful as you might hope, and you may want to reevaluate your decision to keep it on your system.
