Savenow is a spyware program, which is usually included in applications that can be downloaded from the Internet.
Savenow collects information on the user and the Internet usage habits, and depending on it, Savenow downloads advertisements from the Internet, which are then displayed on screen.
Savenow collects information about gender, age, the area where the user resides, e-mail address, keywords entered in web search pages, operating system, etc. However, unlike other spyware programs, it does not send the collected information to any server. It limits itself to store this data locally on the affected computer.
Savenow is easy to recognize, as it displays advertisements on screen.
