Tigers Deal Removal Guide

Do you know what Tigers Deal is?

The developers behind Tigers Deal say they are “dedicated to getting the best, most relevant deals online” for their users. Moreover, they claim to achieve this by combining “systems’ infrastructure and sophisticated data search.” These statements may characterize the program as a highly advanced tool. However, our researchers see the application in a different light since we do not notice any sophisticated features. The provided search engine is most likely nothing more than a modified variant of Google search engine; so would it not be easier to go to google.com instead of installing the extension? The difference is that with Tigers Deal you might get various coupons and ads. The question is will such content be of any use to you and given time will it not become too annoying? We recommend finishing reading the report to find out more about this suspicious extension, although if you already made up your mind to erase it from the system, we offer the removal guide located below.

For starters, it is important to mention the tool was classified as a potentially unwanted program. Usually, software falls under this category if it comes from unknown or unreliable publishers, shows potentially dangerous or annoying content, or acts in any other manner that might make it look unreliable or cause the user want to get rid of it. Talking about Tigers Deal, we cannot name the company that released the application as none of the information provided on tigersdeal.com reveal it at the moment of writing. The mentioned website is obviously the software’s homepage or official site, and it is one of the places where users could download the extension.

Another web page distributing the tool is Chrome Web Store available on chrome.google.com/webstore. Here you can find Tigers Deal by the following ID number oklglcfgndllclhcimoeeejpggpnfjmk. So far it appears to be there are no reviews and only less than ten users, which means the site is not the primary potentially unwanted program’s distribution source. Our researchers think there could be a third option as the extension may also travel with bundled installers of other similarly unreliable applications. Thus, if you did not download the tool while visiting tigersdeal.com or chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tigers-deal-g/oklglcfgndllclhcimoeeejpggpnfjmk, you probably received it together with other software.

At this point, we should mention the potentially unwanted program can work only on Google Chrome, although it is possible it could be updated in the future to make it compatible with other browsers. As soon as Tigers Deal is placed on the browser it might change your homepage and new tab page, so every time you launch the browser or add a new tab you should see the application’s search engine. Our researchers confirm that after submitting a search query, the user should be redirected to what might appear to be a modified version of Google search engine. Because of this, there is a chance the results you receive could have injected with third-party ads that would not show up while surfing the Internet with original google.com.

If you notice suspicious content among the results, it would be advisable to avoid interaction with it as it could cause redirection to unknown third-party websites. For example, the sites might be risky as they may advertise threats similar to the potentially unwanted program or even malicious software. On the other hand, if the application does not look like a tool you cannot live without perhaps it would be safer not to wait for something bad to happen and delete the extension. The removal guide located slightly below will show you how to eliminate it manually, but if it seems too complicated for you, do not forget Tigers Deal could be erased with a reputable antimalware tool too.

In non-techie terms:

Tigers Deal is supposed to be a useful tool for people shopping online, but we doubt it could be as helpful as its creators promise. In fact, our researchers believe the potentially unwanted program could bring you questionable advertisements that might cause you troubles, e.g. lead to malicious or scam web pages, offer to install similarly unreliable software like adware or browser hijackers and so on. Therefore, it seems to us the risk of encountering possibly malicious content overweight the benefits of this extension (coupons, advertisements, icons allow to access some sites faster, etc.). If the application does not look as tempting as it sounded in its description, we advise you not to waste any time with it and eliminate it with the removal guide located above or a reputable antimalware tool.
