Do you know what Deal Vault is?
Deal Vault is another name for Savings Vault. Although the browser plugin comes with "Deal Vault" written on its installation file, eventually what you get on your PC is Savings Vault. It is a browser extension created by 215 Apps (Innovative Apps) just like Supreme Savings or InstantSavingsApp. Its main goal is to provide you with a list of coupon deals from over a thousand online stores (including Toys R Us, Zales, Expedia, kmart and so on). These coupon deals are supposed to help you save money, but the problem is that with Deal Vault your computer may be exposed to possible malicious exploitations. Thus, it is for the best to remove Deal Vault from your system right now.
Although Deal Vault is not a computer virus it is categorized as potentially unwanted application. This plugin displays commercial advertisements that could be really annoying when you try to browse the Internet. Not to mention that these ads can be displayed outgoing links to third party websites. Keeping in mind that Deal Vault is not responsible for reviewing all the links embedded in its ads and coupons, a malicious third party could easily make use of this to redirect you to a dangerous website.
