According to our researchers, this is not a unique adware program, and most definitely it is not the “sliced bread” of ad-supported applications. In fact, they have found that Coprofit is identical to ForYouGain, SkidkiForYou, and more. Once this adware activates, it makes sure that it starts up automatically with Windows. This means that every time you restart your computer, this adware will be actively working in the background. It also installs extensions to your browsers through which it can display third-party commercials. Furthermore, it installs an executable file into Programfiles directory as well.
Instead of useful and profitable coupons, this adware seems to do the good old trick of showing you only affiliated third-parties’ ads in order to generate traffic to their sites. However, you can never be sure where you might end up if you click on them. This adware may also collect information about you and send relevant, targeted ads to your screen. How could you resist a pop-up ad offering you the best discount on a product you actually dream about to have? Do you see now why these ads may be even more dangerous than irrelevant ones? But, if you click, you might get scammed by some cyber criminals, which never ends well for the user. If you want to avoid these potentially harmful ads, you should not hesitate to remove Coprofit.
