How to Remove Sendori Ads Malware (Uninstall Guide)

Tell your friends:
I'm going to stick my neck on the line here and bet my bottom dollar that you've seen 'brought by Sendori' adware on your computer. I'm even going to stake a claim on the fact that you've seen it – let's face it, it's hard to avoid! – whenever you're connected to the Internet. But what exactly is Sendori, where does it come from, who creates it and why, and – perhaps most importantly of all - how do you stop it from bugging you?

What is Sendori?

It is a type of computer program and additional component that downloads itself onto your PC or laptop if you've been unlucky enough to visit a website that has been infected with adware or downloaded some software that has been packaged with it. Adware has two reasons for existing; one is to generate a source of income for the developer who balances the cost of giving away free software with the money they make from advertising, and the other is to display Sendori ads to you – so that you click through and hopefully spend some money!

But how do developers encourage you to spend your money? They do this by ensuring that the adverts that you see contain products or services that you are interested in. And how do they know this? By monitoring the websites that you visit, collecting data, and then sending it back to the adware developer. This of course allows them to send you adverts that are more likely to get you clicking and spending.

So you're telling me that Sendori is spying on me?

I hate to break it to you, but yes. The fact that it installs itself surreptitiously and then watches your every online move is more than enough to have most people concerned. Advertising supported software really shouldn't just be seen as something to ignore – it really is an infringement of your privacy.

Add to that the fact that some developers utilize adware as a means of installing spyware on your computer and suddenly things take a real turn for the worse. Not only it's monitoring the websites that you visit so it can send you an advert for vacations in Jamaica, it's also sending information about your browsing habits that can be even sold to third-parties. How does it do this? By using malicious web browser extensions. They work on all major web browsers and can track your web browsing history and search queries. And of course, the same malicious browser extensions display Sendori ads on your computer.

OK, I'm worried – tell me how to avoid adware and potentially spyware

I can't be any clearer: if you're downloading software, read the small print in the license agreement carefully as it should tell you if Sendori adware is bundled with the program. Secondly, don't open emails from senders you don't know and don't click on links sent in instant messages if you don't recognize the sender. The rule is: stay alert and stay safe.

If you've recently started having issues with Sendori ads and you don't know how to get remove this malware and stop annoying ads, please follow the steps in the removal guide below. If you have any questions, please leave a comment down below. Good luck and be safe online!
