No matter what add-on you want to install, it will be the vulnerability for the whole system. Binkiland is not an exception. All software editors produce security patches and care about the safety of their users. But if you activate any extension, then software companies are not able to ensure that your computer will not be infected. Online scammers can use the add-on as it were a pass to the computer. Certainly there is a safe effort to escape from this situation: download extensions from reputed and trustworthy vendors only. But is not guaranteed guard from online delinquents and computer threats. It is far better not to download browser extensions at all.
But if you still need to download one or another add-on so be ready that this add-on will receive permission to see your personal advertisement that you leave on different websites and can give it to the third parties. You should know that to install a browser extension is like downloading an utility. Will you download an utility if its software company is unknown? I think, no. So, you also should think about the browser add-on that you are eager to install.
Binkiland is a promotional add-on that adds some other dangers. Is there any guarantee that the deals are 100% real? Certainly, no. So, you should not trust the ads and its promises. Also you should not click the links of the displayed pop-ups for they can be viral and so, as consequence, your PC can be infected with a dangerous viral program in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
Manual removal techniques that you can perform to remove Binkiland from browsers are secure and not so difficult as you might think. Probably, only automatic way of removal is easier. This removal way is very effective since the browser creators bother about your right to add or remove any browser add-ons. The removal technique will let you to delete all the unwanted browser add-ons and you will not be displayed its advertisements any more. But occasionally, using this technique users notice that the program returns to the browser and they need to find any other techniques to delete it.
But there is one more manual removal instruction following which you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The described technique is not harmful in case if you are able to perform it carefully or let the experienced person perform it. In order to make this instruction safer you should do the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the enumerated parts of the software should be enumerated and no one more differently the computer will not work. If you do not understand what registry entry is and where it can be, then you are welcome to follow automatic technique in order not to break the PC.
Still the most reliable and the most harmless way of removal is automatic. Downloading any antivirus tool that includes Binkiland in its signatures, you will remove the unwanted browser extension promptly and it will not annoy you any more because the antimalware utility will protect your PC in the future.
Concerning the sums of money that users may pay for the removal of the virus I should say that some methods are 100% free, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are effective. The information about the effectiveness of these removal ways I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it below. Speaking about the paid ways of virus removal, I should mention the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus software.
These methods are the most effective. In spite of the great distinction in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complication of the problem and may cost up to $300, but paid antivirus costs up to $60) these methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also notice that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.
Removal methods statistics
|Removal method||Price||Effectiveness||Safety||Needed Time|
|Computer Repair Shop||$140-$210||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
|Paid Antivirus||$30-60||+++||+++||up to 1 hour|
|$0||+/-||+/-||up to 3 hours|
|From Control Panel||$0||+/-||++||up to 1 hour|
