BrickProvider is another ad-supported browser extension developed with the sole purpose to display advertisement material. BrickProvider is used as an advertisement medium between potential customers and merchants. Therefore, BrickProvider is branded as adware. It may use your web browser as a channel for ads, in-text hyperlinks, pop-ups, and windows and may follow your clicks around the web to determine which ads would be more likely to attract your attention. Users may have installed BrickProvider accidentally as it is typically distributed via 'bundling freeware' model. Computer users should keep in mind that the successful removal of BrickProvider may require the help of a powerful anti-spyware tool.
