Some people, especially the developers of Citi Web adware, might think that it is some good program. However, those who are of a sound mind will not appreciate this adware and its intrusive ads to pop up in all available browsers.

Citi Web is spread in the Internet today through being bundled with a lot of other free programs. We’ve actually installed this adware as a result of clicking on certain links, which lead us to installation of certain Flash Player. Along with that Flash Player Citi Web adware and other third-party programs got installed.

Needless to say, it is necessary for all users today to be very careful whenever they deal with free applications. Some of us are the fans of freeware. We like installing all that is free, especially if such programs are beneficial. However, before we ever make the decision to install some of such free programs, let us always pay close attention to what else their installers offer us to make the part of our PCs. If the EULAs (End User’s License Agreements) of such free applications suggest us to install some extras like Citi Web adware, then let us uncheck such options by accessing the advanced or custom installation mode. This is the correct approach, which will help us to avoid all useless third-party applications from being installed into our computers by default.

When you fail to be duly attentive you may easily end up installing Citi Web and a lot of other useless programs into your computer. Generally, Citi Web adware doesn’t represent any value for you when it comes to shopping. Indeed, some of its ads might be relevant to your search queries you make through such commercial websites, but this doesn’t mean that this adware cares about helping you to find what you need. Its only purpose and mission is to make you click on its ads, deals and coupons, and this is how its owners and distributors get paid.
