Everyone should understand that all the programs for browsers including Megasoft Security, no matter if they are functional, are the areas of weakness for a browser where they are installed. The browser vendors produce update patches periodically, due to which the safety of the browser is protected. The presence of any extension can put the browser security at stake. And, as a result, some internet criminals can infect your computer or collect your personal data. If you are not able to imagine your browser without browser extensions, then I can advise you to download extensions from well-known vendors only, perhaps it will promote you to keep your computer secure. But you should know that it is better not to install any extensions at all.
But if you still need to have any browser extension then be prepared that this extension will receive compliance to record your personal advertisement that you leave on various websites and can give it to the third companies.

So, you also should think about the extension that you want to install.

Also you should not click the links of the displayed ads for they can be viral and so, as a result, you can get a real computer threat in your system.

This method is very effective since the browser vendors worry about your right to add or remove any browser add-ons. The way of removal will let you to remove all the undesired browser add-ons and pop-ups will not annoy you any more.
