WowCoupon Removal Guide

Thursday, August 28th 2014 under Security by

The purpose of WowCoupon browser extension is to improve users’ online shopping experience by providing them with online deals and coupons. Unfortunately, all the application does is to display multiple advertisements on different online shopping websites, such as eBay, Walmart, Amazon, etc. Thus, you can easily guess that WowCoupon is classified as adware. It has been created on JustPlugIt engine and is identical to other advertisement-supported extensions, including Less2Pay, RoyalCoupon, and many more. All of these, along with WowCoupon, should be removed from the PC immediately if present.

The WowCoupon add-on is promoted at wowcouponapp.info, however, the application is not available for download there. This leads to the idea that it can only be distributed through bundled installers found on freeware websites. Hence, it is likely that the aim of the official website of the application is to convince users they can trust these freeware websites. If that trick has worked on you and you have acquired WowCoupon, it would be best to delete the application which will also make the annoying advertisements disappear.

As it was already mentioned, the advertisements displayed by WowCoupon are rather irritating, but that is not their only drawback. The biggest problem comes from the fact that the ads are not associated with WowCoupon because they belong to affiliate third parties. This means that the developers of the application will not accept any responsibility if you were exposed to corrupted content as all the websites you might be redirected to have their own privacy policies. Moreover, WowCoupon can be accessed by literally anyone which enables schemers to use it as well. Thus, you should not interact with the presented ads and erase WowCoupon in order not to put your personal information and virtual security at risk.

In addition, another reason why the existence of WowCoupon should not be tolerated is the fact that the program is able to track your browsing interests. The program will record non-personally identifiable information, such as your search terms, clicks, impressions, browser settings, and other things related to your browsing behavior. The gathered data is used to improve the quality of the service and to provide you with more new advertisements. You can prevent all that by deleting WowCoupon and shielding your system against different threats.

If you have come to terms with the idea that WowCoupon should be erased and are ready to do it, please follow the removal steps below the article. They should be enough to remove the extension from your system and browsers. However, chances are that other unwanted applications have settled on your computer, which is why you should scan the system and determine which ones they are. Please note that it will be much easier to install a powerful security program that will automatically detect and delete all potential threats, and will maintain your PC clean and secure.
