What is RocketTab?
RocketTab is a browser extension that is usually classified as adware because of the way it behaves once it gets access to your PC. In the promotion of the program it is stated that RocketTab aims to provide the best search results for the computer user, but in reality the main aim of the program is to promote certain Internet pages in order to generate their traffic. That is how the developers of the application make profit and that is the only reason it was created. RocketTab has its official page, but it usually comes bundled with freeware or shareware programs.
It is compatible with all popular browsers including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Keeping adware on your computer will slow down your computer and Internet speed. We recommend you delete RocketTab as soon as you can.
How does RocketTab work?
All ad-supported programs work in the same way. They fill your browsers with various useless data like ads, pop-ups, sponsored links, banners and so on. In order to increase the chances of you clicking on the ads, RocketTab will start tracking your cookies and thus recording your Internet habits. This information could be sold to third parties and used in order to personalize the adverts you see. Clicking on the ads is not recommended, no matter how good the offer may seem. Adware programs can easily be exploited by cyber criminals as RocketTab does not held responsibility for the content it promotes. The pages you can get redirected to could be corrupted.
They may contain offensive or false data like malware presented as a software update and so on. You should also be careful with your personal details and not enter any fake lotteries or fill out suspicious surveys. Keep in mind that even though RocketTab is not malicious itself you are exposed to dangerous content because of it. That is why you should not hesitate and terminate RocketTab immediately.
