MCShop is a browser extension that hijacks popular browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.

The main task of the developers – this is to get you to make unnecessary purchases. Also after each click on the banner ad developers are paid. This program can significantly reduce the performance of your computer, increase traffic and transfer your personal information and browsing history to third parties. If you find a program MCShop on your PC, then you urgently need to remove it from your computer.
