Binkiland.com is an application that promises to improve your web browsing security. It is supposed to warn you every time you click on a malicious link. On its main page it is claimed that the add-on checks every site that you open and alerts of possible threats it finds.
The program may appear very useful for a security-minded computer user.

How does Binkiland.com work?
Binkiland.com is classified as an ad-supported application. It is similar to other adware like Clean Browser, Browse Safe and so on. The application was developed by Exciting Apps, also known as Smart Apps. Once it gets installed, it also adds other components to your system such as cookies and adware helpers. These components make sure that the adware stays updated and they also collect information about your browsing habits to use it for marketing purposes. The main aim of the application is to flood you with various ads and sponsored links. That is how it promotes its sponsors. If some of the adverts seem like something you could be interested in, that is because of the processed data that was collected by cookies. We do not recommend clicking on any of the adverts no matter what they promote. Clicking on a corrupted link could lead to serious consequences like infecting your PC with malware, installing potentially unwanted applications, sharing your personal details with untrustworthy third parties and so on.
