Online Journey Hijacking: FAQs

How Namogoo wins back stolen revenue from Digital Malware

What is client-side Digital Malware?

Client-side Digital Malware is a wide and rapidly growing but invisible phenomenon that compromises the online customer journey as well as customer privacy and data integrity. This type of Digital Malware bypasses any server-side security solutions and resides on your customers’ devices, out of your control.

Client-side Digital Malware includes unauthorized widgets (product recommendations and deals), ads and spyware scripts that are injected into websites by extensions unintentionally installed on customers’ browsers through downloaded software or through public Wi-Fi networks.

How do customers get infected?

Customers become infected by downloading different kinds of software and browser extensions that may seem legit, but include hidden malware and spyware. Digital Malware affects all browsers, on both desktop and mobile.

How do injections show up on my website?

Injections are unauthorized widgets displaying in your customer’s browser, without your permission with no compensation to your company. The injections are initiated by independent third party services that hijack the web page and place unauthorized ads to get paid for clicks, or other widgets to obtain sensitive information.

What types of client-side Digital Malware are there?

There are various types and forms of client-side Digital Malware, all designed to make your customers think they are part of the online experience you designed.


Injected Products – competing product ads may be injected into the product pages as well as other pages. Product ads are designed to lure customers to other destinations resulting in loss of traffic and revenue. In addition, product ads exploit the website’s brand and have a significant impact on conversion rates and the overall customer experience.


Injected Ads – injected banner ads and pop-ups promote unauthorized products or content, and can diminish the site’s brand.. Unauthorized injected ads can cause websites to lose traffic as well as create an unpleasant experience for customers, harming retention and trust, and compromising the website’s integrity.


Spyware Scripts – a large percentage of Digital Malware is comprised of scripts that are injected into the website and are designed to obtain sensitive, and at times confidential, user information and intelligence on the website’s operations such as pricing and offerings. There are many types of spyware, including false surveys that encourage users to expose sensitive information, and remote-access tools (RATs) that are designed to stall the user while collecting information behind the scenes. Other forms of spyware may steal login credentials, payment methods and even screenshots of data displayed on the screen.

How does client-side Digital Malware affect my business?

15%-30% of your online users are infected with Digital Malware at any given moment, and experience your website differently than you intended. This figure is highly seasonal and may increase by up to 30%-50% during high-traffic periods such as holiday seasons. Digital Malware causes significant loss of traffic and online revenue, and also impacts the website’s integrity, and significantly harms customers’ trust. Client-side Digital Malware hijacks the online journey you designed and hurts conversion rates and your brand.

How does client-side Digital Malware affect my customers?

Once infected with Digital Malware, your customers will experience your site completely differently from the way it was designed. Digital Malware injects unwanted ads, disrupting your customers’ experience, diverting attention and ultimately luring them away. In addition, invisible spyware can compromise your customers’ private and sensitive data.

How is Namogoo’s solution different from ad blockers?
