SaveItKeep virus

SaveItKeep (Save It Keep) is detected as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware by reputable Antivirus vendors because it can get onto a computer system without user knowledge and collect complex user browsing data, which it uses to serve targeted advertisements across Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and other internet browsers. Furthermore, SaveItKeep adware is known to use deceptive marketing techniques to get onto a computer without proper detection.
