Do you know what Dealfox is?
Dealfox is a suspicious application which most virtual security experts identify as an advertisement supported program. This application is represented as a browser extension and we do not categorize it as highly malicious. In fact, the extension itself is intrusive only because it can install without your permission and activate web cookies which are meant to track non-personally identifiable information. Despite this, you certainly should delete Dealfox because third parties linked to the program may have much more mischievous intentions. If you are ready to take care of the security of your operating system, you firstly need to eliminate all security risks, and adware may be the cause of them.Dealfox screenshot

If you are familiar with the services of deal-fox.co.uk or dealfox.com.au, you may think that Dealfox is an application which you can trust. In reality, this extension has no relation to these services, and its real developer is Smart Apps. Note that the developer might be presented as Appealing Apps, Enchanted Apps, 215 Apps, etc. Savings Hen, Keycoupons, KingBrowse and plenty of other advertisement supported programs have been created by this suspicious developer as well. Another thing that these applications have in common is that most of them represent inactive installers. If you go to deal-fox.com and click the Download button, you will be informed that the application is under construction. Regardless, these programs usually travel bundled with other applications. Once installed, Dealfox can flood the browsers with third-party advertisements, modify the Windows hosts file and initiate unauthorized connections to the Internet.
Even though Dealfox does not appear to be a malicious program, you cannot trust it. The extension installs tracking cookies to spy on you and then the affiliated parties use this information to present misleadingly attractive ads. Clicking on pop-up/banner advertisements, using presented coupons, participating in prize draws and sharing personal information via random surveys is dangerous. Therefore, we recommend that you remove the plugin as soon as possible. Even though manual Dealfox removal is possible, we strongly advise employing automatic malware removal software. The advertisement supported program could have been installed bundled with other unreliable or even malicious programs which may be difficult to delete manually.

In non-techie terms:
You should remove Dealfox from the PC and browser because this advertisement supported program is not as reliable as you may believe to be at first. It is most likely that you have downloaded the application bundled with other software, and certain bundled applications could be just as unreliable or even more malicious. Due to this, we strongly recommend using automatic malware removal software. If you are having trouble installing it onto the PC – use the guides below.
