Do you know what Savings Plugin is?
Savings Plugin is an adware application that functions as a browser extension. Some users think that it is a dangerous computer infection because it exhibits annoying and intrusive behavior. Nevertheless, Savings Plugin is very far from being a genuine computer virus. Adware applications are not malicious threats because they do not enter computers surreptitiously, and yet it is not a good idea to keep one on your PC. Hence, you have to remove Savings Plugin from the system because it is one of the best ways to avoid any serious threats.
Do not be fooled by the official website for Savings Plugin. It is located at savings-plugin.com, and it looks relatively professional, but there is nothing real about it. Although it is possible to download the application at the main homepage directly, it is very unlikely that users who complain about Savings Plugin have downloaded the application there.Savings Plugin screenshot

This application is developed by Engaging Apps or Innovative Apps. It is the same company that uses more than just one name. We also know that there have been other adware applications from the same family with a similar profile. For example, SavingsChampion, Coupon Waterfall or Coupon Lasso does not seem to differ much from Savings Plugin, so we can infer that all of these adware applications function based on the same principle. Likewise, Savings Plugin also gets distributed just like its predecessors.
Since almost all applications from Innovative Apps group get distributed bundled with freeware, it is safe to assume that Savings Plugin employs the same distribution method as well. It also means that users install this potentially unwanted application onto their computers themselves. It is very easy to end up doing that, especially if you do not read freeware installation steps carefully.
Once Savings Plugin gets installed on your system, it adds extensions to all main browsers. However, our lab team points out that the newest Google Chrome versions block the application. It only proves that Savings Plugin cannot be trusted, and you should not keep it on your PC.
