Do you know what SharkManCoupon is?
Adware applications usually cause random adverts, coupons, discount deals and annoying pop-ups. SharkManCoupon is one of those programs that will annoy you to no end. Although SharkManCoupon is advertised as a useful browser add-on that will aid you while you are shopping online, it will not do that in any way. All that SharkManCoupon is capable of is flooding your browser with worthless ads so making the web surfing a frustrating experience to say the least. What is alarming about this adware program is that it could possibly lead other internet-based infections onto your PC. Thus, restoring your browsers normal functionality and overall security of your computer should be reasons enough to remove SharkManCoupon immediately.SharkManCoupon screenshot

Research conducted at the internal labs at Spyware-Techie.com headquarters revealed that SharkManCoupon is mostly distributed via bundled software. It was discovered that infamous installers such as InstallRex, Vittalia, and Amonetize are used very often in order to install SharkManCoupon onto your PC. These setup files are usually acquired on fake download websites or websites associated with online piracy. Practicing safe browsing habits is a great idea to reduce the risk rate of infecting your system, but you should also install a licensed antimalware tool as it will provide overall real-time security.
SharkManCoupon is based on the JustPlugIt engine. Applications such as Cinem4s, DealsFactor, CouponAddon and quite a few other adware programs are based on it as well. So it is quite natural that SharkManCoupon functions in a similar way as its counterparts. The adware program will install browser extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome as soon as it gains access to your operating system. As long as these extensions are active your browser will be flooded with various third-party commercial advertisements.
What is worse is that applications like SharkManCoupon often track information that is personally identifiable. Data like your email address, home address, IP address, ISP (Internet Service Provider), and phone number is gathered and usually shared with third parties. The activities of these third parties are unknown as publishers of SharkManCoupon do no review their associates. Therefore, it is plausible that information about you could be shared with cybercriminals. This kind of data in the hands of cyber crooks could be used in very detrimental ways. By no means should SharkManCoupon be kept on your PC – removal is essential.
Follow the provided instructions carefully, and you should not encounter any problems. Even though, the annoying and potentially malicious activities stopped after manual removal we still firmly recommend you analyzing your operating system for potential leftovers of SharkManCoupon. In some cases, these traces of SharkManCoupon could be used in order to restore the invasive application without any interaction from you. It is quite obvious that rechecking your system after manual removal is as important as the removal itself.
