Since we know which adware family Downpriceapp belongs to, we know what to expect of this application. This program usually randomizes its name upon the installation. It also adds extension to your default browser, and the name of the extension might be capitalized at random, like this – DownNpriceapp. From this we can see that Downpriceapp is no different than CoupExtension, Deal4Real, DealExpress and other applications from the same group. The only difference is that Downpriceapp can be downloaded from the official website at downpriceapp.info, while usually such programs do not have working direct download links. Apart from the official homepage, this program can also come bundled with fake Java and Flash player downloaders.
Information provided at the official homepage states that Downpriceapp “eliminates the hassles for consumer to pick the best online deal. It scans the Web for all available online deals, and brings it all to you in a simple interface.” Thus, it seems that Downpriceapp is there to help you purchase your favorite goods at the lowest price possible. However, it is very far from the truth because this application cannot guarantee the safety of the ads content.
The main problem with such adware applications is that they are created to generate easy money for their developers. Thus, Downpriceapp can be exploited by almost anyone for third-party content promotion. This is also the reason you are strongly discouraged to click Downpriceapp ads, as you can never known what website you will be redirected to. It might be just another page that displays commercial advertisements, but it might also be a website related to malware distribution.
