What is Groovorio?
Groovorio is an ad-supported application maintained by Iron Source Ltd. It is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. The browser plugin has its own official website getgroovorio.com, where it is promoted as a tool that will help you surf faster and smarter. The program also allows you to “choose your look” by providing a range of local and universal logos for your favorite websites, select different designer themes and get quick access to your favorite webpages.
Since there is no download link on the main site of the application, we can assume that it travels bundled with freeware. The adware is also available on Chrome Web Store where it is listed as Groovorio New Tab. If you want to get rid of Groovorio, you should not hesitate to do so.
How does Groovorio work?
The reason Groovorio is classified as an adware program is because it fills your browsers with commercial data. The browser add-on can also change your browser settings such as home page, new tab and default search engine. Every time you open your browser, you will see groovorio.com. If you try using its search engine, you will not be provided with genuine results. They will be altered to include sponsored links. It is known that Groovorio uses adclick.g.doubleclick.net, which is an ad-hosting server used by various adware programs. We urge you to stay from all advertising content presented to you by the application, be it adverts that you see on pages you visit or sponsored links presented in the search results.
The unreliable ads is not the only reason to eliminate Groovorio from your PC. The adware tracks your cookies and records information about your online behavior. Such non-personally identifiable information as your IP address, your visited pages, made search queries, etc is collected in order to personalize the commercial data. Moreover, the application is also responsible for slowing down your Internet connection and system speed. We recommend you terminate Groovorio.
