Do you know what GetDiscountApp is?
GetDiscountApp is an ad-supported application, classified as adware. It was made using the infamous JustPlugIt engine, which is responsible for hundreds of adware applications. All of them have different names; however, they function in essentially the same way. The JustPlugIt adware family includes applications such as SaveNShop, SaveON, RealDeal, RightCoupon, and countless others. Going by this information alone, we recommend deleting GetDiscountApp from your system. If you are hesitant, read on to find out more.
GetDiscountApp is distributed by the InstallRex installer. You can get it on torrent and other piracy websites, when you click a fake download link. You should always carefully look for the real link, especially if you are new at using a particular website. If you have ever installed something with a bundle setup program, such as InstallRex, it is very likely that you installed unnecessary programs. This is because users often fail to pay adequate attention to each step of the process and leave checked boxes, offering to install optional software. To avoid this, you should opt for Advanced setup and uncheck any boxes offering to install software you do not want.GetDiscountApp screenshot
