Do you know what Internet Cupom is?
Internet Cupom is an extension that is better known by its official name, NetCupom – Combustível para suas compras. Needless to say, this program is targeted at those users who speak Portuguese, primarily those living in Brazil. Although this extension mostly promotes Brazilian online vendors, including extra.com.br, zocprint.com.br, and walmart.com.br, we have found that users in Portugal and Angola also use this extension. According to our research team, Internet Cupom is not promoted via Chrome web store; however, you can download it directly from internetcupom.com. What is more, this program is believed to be spread by malicious installers. Needless to say, having to worry about the removal of multiple suspicious programs is much more terrible than dealing with one strange, potentially unwanted program. If you want to find out how to remove Internet Cupom from your PC quickly and successfully, you should continue reading this report.
As you install Internet Cupom – whether you do it via internetcupom.com or using third-party installers – it is likely that you will be introduced to the permissions of this Chrome extension.

You can use this ID to identify the folder containing all Internet Cupom files under C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions.
