How does an ad-supported application work

Adware will invade your system quietly, through freeware. In case you were not aware, the majority of free applications has undesirable offers adjoined to it. Such as ad-supported programs, browser hijackers and other potentially unnecessary applications (PUPs). Default settings will fail to warn you of anything being added, and offers will be authorized to install. We encourage opting for Advanced or Custom instead. You will have the choice of seeing and unchecking all attached offers in those settings. You can never know what may come with freeware so we recommend you always choose those settings.

Advertising-supported applications can also be the reason behind your sluggish device and crashing browser. We highly advise you uninstall NameSync because it will only bother you.
