SaveMass adware also uses collected user browsing data for a variety of several marketing campaigns that may include using a victims email address, home address, and telephone number. Information collected by SaveMass adware may also be shared with unknown third-parties and programs that this adware bundles with.

Potential SaveMass malware is commonly known as the “SaveMass virus” even though the unwanted program is not a computer virus. However, the SaveMass virus is very intrusive before and after install, it modifies existing browser and system settings (including browser and system start-up protocols), and it primarily bundles with other unwanted programs, malware, and malicious threats that can cause further issues and will also need to be removed.
