Save Pages is an annoying adware that may enter your machine if you install freeware and skip details. Save Pages is a Web extension that may work just as well on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. In the past, the add-on could be found on the Chrome Web Store. However, because the majority of PC users provide negative feedback, Save Pages was removed. Save Pages also has no official page, so it may rely almost exclusively on the bundling method. This means that very frequently the adware may modify the browsers of the users against their will. As a typical ad-based extension, Save Pages may generate a lot of pop-ups, banners, transitional ads, and also turn some words into hyperlinks. Save Pages also may insert videos and blinking animations. You may be surprised to find out that a significant part of the commercial materials may respond to your interests accurately. It may happen because the adware may have access to some non-personally identifiable information such as your browsing history and recent searches. Although the offered products may make you curious, you should be vigilant if you want to check them. In some cases, the sponsored links may transfer you to sites that are not safe. A lot of infections happen when unsuspecting users download fake updates from unknown sites that they have visited after clicking on a compromised ad. The marketing elements may cover a substantial part of the screen. Not only this performance may irritate you. The ads also may cause your browsers to operate too slowly. In case you open a few tabs simultaneously, each containing a lot of ads, your Web client may even freeze or crash. Save Pages is not one of those extensions that you can disable with a click of the mouse. The adware may activate itself again automatically with the next launch of the browser. To remove Save Pages permanently, you should use a credible security tool.
