digital shopping companion
Software that operates behind-the-screens when you use a browser. It pops up to perform specific tasks, such as comparing prices, intercepting spam, providing passwords, or managing personal information online. Some shopping companions act as an e-wallet, designed to appear when the user is ready to make an online purchase (for example, to provide shipping and billing information with one click). Amazon.com's Alexa is an example of a digital shopping companion.
