Do you know what WhiteCoupon is?
If you install WhiteCoupon on the system, you will definitely start seeing commercial advertisements on your screen. According to our specialists, pop-ups, banners, coupons, and other kinds of ads will start appearing on your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. Specialists say that advertisements might cause serious harm to your computer because they might take you to untrustworthy websites. If you do not want to cause harm to your system, you have to stop all those ads from appearing as soon as possible. Specialists say that the only way to do that is to remove adware from the system. In most cases, it is not difficult to get rid of advertising-supported applications, so it seems that you will be able to remove WhiteCoupon yourself as well.
WhiteCoupon is based on the JustPlugIt engine, and it is a typical advertising-supported application. In other words, this program will generate and show advertisements only. It is rather risky to click on ads because you might end up on corrupted websites very quickly. Unfortunately, it might be really difficult to ignore advertisements because they will keep appearing on your screen without prior notice and you might simply click on them accidentally. WhiteCoupon provides users with relevant ads in order to lure computer users into clicking on them. In order to do that, it collects information about a user’s online behavior, e.g. search queries, the websites you visit, the time you spend on them, and even the content you access. Of course, this is non-personally identifiable information; however, you should definitely know that some facts about you might be extracted from the gathered data.
This advertising-supported application comes bundled with unreliable programs. Our specialists have noticed that users usually install this program when they click on fake Download buttons placed on torrent and file-sharing websites. If you have done that, it is not surprising that you see the presence of WhiteCoupon. In fact, there is basically no doubt that EZDownloader, mystartsearch.com browser hijacker, and websearch.searchfix.info browser hijacker have entered your system as well. You have to get rid of those threats as soon as possible because they might really cause harm to your computer. Actually, there is even a possibility that they will attract a bunch of malicious applications to your system.
In order to get rid of WhiteCoupon, you have to delete this program via Control Panel and then remove its extensions. Our manual removal instructions will help you do that; however, you will not be able to delete other infections that might be present on your computer. You can, of course, detect and remove undesirable programs that have been installed alongside WhiteCoupon yourself or you can simply scan your computer with a trustworthy antimalware scanner, such as SpyHunter. It is up to you what to do, but we think that it would be easier for you to leave all the work to an antimalware scanner.
