If the websites that you visit start displaying "Ads by YellowMarkApp", you should know your web clients are under the influence of adware. The only feature of this add-on is to attach additional commercial content on the sites. As a result, you may be disturbed by large amounts of pop-ups, banners and interstitial ads whenever you go online. The extension affects all popular browsers at the same time, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. Typically, people don't download this adware intentionally. Even if you want to, you may have a hard time trying to find a site that hosts it. Instead of the direct downloads, YellowMarkApp relies on a questionable distribution method named "bundling". You may be asked to load the so-called shopping optimizer as an additional component of some free applications. You should not be deceived to give your permission since the dubious add-on is rarely of any help to its clients. You will indeed be overwhelmed with discounts and offers, but clicking on the corresponding ads will most likely take you to unfamiliar shopping sites. This fact is not too hard to explain: the large and legitimate e-commerce platforms have other means of advertising than ad-supported extensions. Buying anything from unknown vendors should be at your own risk because they may not hold their end of the deal. In addition to being unreliable, the ads may even turn out to be dangerous. In case they transfer you to some malicious or fraudulent page, you may find your whole PC infected. Since there is no point in keeping YellowMarkApp, you should consider removing it from your system with professional security software.
