“Ads by MyCouponize”, “Ads generated by MyCouponize”, “MyCouponize delivered ads” and other messages with similar titles are the main signs that your computer is infected with specific ad-generating software named MyCouponize. Whether you see these messages as a pop-up ad, banner, video or other online advertisements, you should be careful not to click on them. The main reason not to trust these ads is that they may eventually expose you to some aggressive web content you may not want to interact with, or to some hazardous web locations.
Of course, most of the advertised web pages, banners, and pop-ups for goods and services may be entirely legitimate, but studies show that this is not always the case. In some cases, users may accidentally click on a fake link or a misleading pop-up and may get infected with some tricky virus, a Trojan horse or Ransomware cryptovirus. In addition, you may find yourself struggling to close and remove the never ending flow of promotional messages, new tabs and banners from your Chrome, Firefox or Explorer browser and may experience frequent browsing interruptions. If you already know what we are talking about and you feel irritated with this program’s activities, we would recommend that you uninstall it. For your convenience, we have prepared recommendations for its removal in the manual removal instructions just below the article. You can use them freely at any time.
Is MyCouponize Pop-up Ads dangerous?
Due to the above-described invasive activities, the affected users often consider such programs to be viruses. However, this program is NOT dangerous malware similar to Trojans, Ransomware, and other harmful infections, but a potentially unwanted program from the harmless type. And to be more specific, it’s an adware-based program that generates ads to promote third-party content and collect ad revenue through Pay-Per-Click. Adware basically employs an aggressive marketing practice of generating numerous ads on the users’ screen solely of financial interest. In addition to allowing users to download it from the official website, MyCouponize Pop-up Ads may also hijack Chrome, Firefox, Explorer and other browsers without the consent of the users. Whether you think this is a reasonable or a little invasive way of making money through advertising, we simply cannot ignore the fact that such software does not cause a serious harm to your PC in any way.
However, we, as users, should always have a choice of how to surf the web, what ads to see or what programs to install on our computers. That’s why, if you feel that this adware is bothering you with annoying ads that make you visit strange web pages, buy products, or subscribe to services when you do not want to, then you have all the right to uninstall it. In addition, most of the legitimate vendors, advertisers or service providers typically choose more transparent advertising methods and do not need to use the redirect services of programs like this. What is more, we doubt that a self-respecting application would gather information about its users. Unfortunately, specialists have found that adware is involved in rather large-scale monitoring of the flow of users’ browsing information, and this could be another good reason to uninstall this program from your computer.
