There are hundreds of thousands of browser extensions designed to help us to save time, be more productive, and personalize our online experience.
And while the majority of them do what they’re supposed to, some are not designed to help you at all…
If you’re unfortunate enough to download a malicious browser extension without realizing, it could harm your productivity and even flood your work with unwanted advertising.
This is known as adware. It’s a form of malware (malicious software) that’s designed to bombard you with unwanted adverts.
