What is BestZiper

BestZiper has been categorized as an unwanted piece of software that displays annoying ads, slows down the browsing speed, and runs stealth collection of personal data. Initially, it is presented as a useful add-on and desktop application helping users archive and unzip their files. Even though this may be helpful for some people indeed, there is hardly any room to trust BestZiper. As we mentioned, it features a number of intrusive ads stacked and laid over each other on any website you open. Various coupons, text ads, banners, and pop-ups are likely to store redirects to unwanted, malicious, or fake pages offering to download some software or updates. In addition to that, you may see such ads marked under tags like Powered by BestZiper, Brought to you by BestZiper, RocketTab powered by BestZiper, Ads by BestZiper or Ads powered by BestZiper. These and more changes imposed by BestZiper serve as tools helping frauds earn illegal money. The adware may also gather your data (e.g. passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc) and sell it to third-party figures. Considering these threats are present, there is no doubt BestZiper has to be removed from your system. However, in most cases, it ends up being a struggle to delete BestZiper for users facing such infections for the first time. This is why we decided to make instructions explaining how to get rid of BestZiper completely.

How BestZiper infected your computer

Software like BestZiper is often distributed via “bundling” methods. In other words, it can be spread along with other free, pirated, or cracked software downloaded from the web. This software is usually repacked containing third-party programs as promotional offers. As a rule, they are hidden inside of “Advanced” and “Custom” sections that most people ignore. It is also possible they are included as part of the “Recommended” type of installation. To avoid unwanted infections, it is worth taking a look at what is proposed during the setup. IN case you see any additional sections or offers, make sure to deselect them before hitting the “Install” button. Therefore, it is possible that BestZiper could be missed the same way as well. In order to stay protected against such threats in the future, it is important to maintain self-awareness as well as evaluate risks whilst using unofficial or pirated software from suspicious resources. Below, we will also show you a number of tips that will ensure better protection against unwanted and malicious software.
