Piggy extension is not verified for use with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or any other genuine browser (which is not unusual, by the way). Once installed, the adware starts showing the bunch of intrusive advertisements specifically when you visit certain websites participating in this program. These can be commercial sites like Walmart or Amazon, or sites rendering services (iPage.com hosting as an example). These advertisements will be often marked as “brought by Piggy”, whereas the banners will be located in the right-bottom part of the window of each visited site.

You might think that there’s nothing wrong with this adware, but the problem is that it pursues other goals then actually helping users in getting better prices online.

However, you will most likely not be able to save more money while shopping through it.
