Thirteen degrees is a dodgy program created by swindlers. It offers to boost the online browsing experience for every user, but actually, this is just another technique to trick naive users. People may download and install this worthless software believing that this program is legitimate and helpful. Unfortunately, nowadays many users do not realize that this browser extension is an ordinary adware application and a potentially unwanted program (PUP).
The SuperWeb LLC company is a developer of thirteen degrees. This adware employs a deceptive software marketing technique called ‘bundling’ to spread this extension, and therefore, users often install thirteen degrees inadvertently without their permission. This program hijacks well-know web browsers (for instance Internet Explorer, Safari, Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox). Once install, Thirteen Degrees shows various annoying online adverts, such as banners, pop-ups, interstitial, deals, transitional, coupon, search, discount, full-page, etc. Although these ads could seem harmless, they diminish browser performance and online speed, and may redirect to doubtful web pages containing infectious content – thereby exposing your machine to risk of infection.
