Do you know what CouponSupport is?
CouponSupport is a free program that is bundled with many other free programs, including adware and so-called potentially unwanted programs. CouponSupport is installed silently, i.e. the user is not informed about the program and changes that are going to be made within the system. Due to the fact that the program is installed without the user’s interference, some security programs may categorize the program as a Trojan. According to our classification, it is an adware program because it is associated with Shopping Chip, a program displaying obtrusive pop-up windows, none of which belongs to the developers of the adware program.
In order to prevent CouponSupport and other similar programs in the future, it is highly advisable to pay close attention to software installation processes. You should always review the license agreement or privacy statement and decline the installation of unwanted programs.
During the installation of CouponSupport, the files of the program are added to the Support folder in disk C. Moreover, unlike other advertising-related programs, CouponSupport has no uninstaller, which makes the removal process more complex than usual.
You should be very careful when provided with various web banners and pop-up advertisements because some of them may be aimed at redirecting you to insecure websites, including websites distributing malware or promoting fake quizzes and surveys, the only goals of which are to obtain users’ personal information. In order to prevent spam emails, computer infections, and other adverse consequences, you should pay more attention to your online privacy, i.e. keep the system up-to-date and, without a doubt, protected against malware and spyware.
Moreover, CouponSupport may be monitoring your online behavior. Advertising-supported programs are usually programmed to record the IP address, clicks, impressions, search terms, browsing history, browser settings, and other non-personally identifiable information. Information acquired from Internet browsers is used to produce new advertisement and enhance the quality of the product. We recommend that you remove CouponSupport and associated programs so that you can prevent annoying advertisements, and, most important, browse the Internet safely.
However, it is not enough to remove CouponSupport because the computer needs protection against malware and spyware. The computer should contain a reputable security program, and we advise you to use SpyHunter. This security tool can readily remove CouponSupport and other adware programs, Trojan horses, browser hijackers, and many other threats. Without a security tool on your computer, you cannot be safe on the Internet because your personal data could be stolen in no time, not to mention the fact that the machine could be corrupted.
