If your recent web browsing has become unpleasant due to some intrusive generation of ads, pop-ups and banners on your screen, then some nagging ads displaying software like Right Coupon Popup has probably taken over your browser. Such software is usually referred to as adware and has some specifics, which need your attention. Usually, any browser can be affected by the adware, whether it is Chrome, Explorer, Firefox, or some other not so popular one. In this article, we are going to show you how to safely remove this software and save yourself from its aggressively popping ads. But first, let us tell you a bit more about its nature and typical behavioral traits so you can gain an idea of its danger level and potential negative effects.

How would you know what is causing you the disturbance?

You will easily know that Right Coupon Popup is the program, which is causing you browsing irritation if all the ads that flood your screen contain a small text stating something like “Ads delivered by Right Coupon Popup” or “Generated by Right Coupon Popup”. We just said above that this program is an adware, but what exactly adware is? This is a term that generally stands for advertising software, which is known for its specific intrusive behavior and irritating ad-generating activity. Usually, such software is used by the online advertising industry to promote and display different products, services, web pages, or some offers directly on the screen of the users. However, the adware also has another purpose – to bring income to its developers’ thanks to sponsored advertisement positioning or some paid clicks through Pay-Per-Click campaigns. The aggressive ad-generation behavior of programs like Right Coupon Popup can basically be explained with the strive of its owners to earn more profits from the users’ clicks. But the people, who have to endure this behavior, often find it as irritating and invasive, therefore, they seek for ways to uninstall the adware and remove its ads.

Can Right Coupon Popup be harmful or dangerous?

It is normal to be concerned about your system’s safety, especially when some strange program keeps exposing you to unknown and unwanted popping messages. You may find yourself struggling to close them, because clicking on the “X” button may not always remove them. Often times, you may get redirected to some unknown advertising pages instead, and land on web locations you never intended to visit. These activities of the adware can be quite disturbing that’s why many people fear that such software could have some virus-like abilities or malicious intentions. Fortunately, such fear is not justified because neither Right Coupon Popup nor any other adware program can undertake malicious actions towards your system. A real virus, on the other hand, is exclusively created to do some type of harm. It can steal your credentials, destroy your data, encrypt your files or provide the hackers with unauthorized access to your machine. The last two are common results from an attack of Ransomware or a Trojan horse, by the way. Adware is not created to do harm and compared to what real malware can do, it appears relatively harmless. The worst you can expect from such software is:

  • to keep track of your browsing activity and try to match its ads according to your latest searches
  • to transmit browsing related data to its developers for the purposes of marketing.
  • to redirect your searches to some unfamiliar ad-broadcasting pages
  • to consume some of your system resources and internet bandwidth for the generation of its ads.

From all of the above, a real risk may occur only if you, by mistake, click on some misleading or infected pop-up. This may eventually expose you to insecure web content or some viruses. The chance is very small, but still, it is good to keep in mind that threats like Ransomware and Trojans use ads as transmitters. Of course, you never know which ads are safe and which may be compromised, so if you don’t want to put your system at unnecessary risk, you should avoid interacting with them, or better completely uninstall their source. 

How to safely remove Right Coupon Popup from your system?

Removing this adware is a bit tricky because it usually installs its scripts deep inside the system and without some advanced computer knowledge or some detailed instructions, finding and deleting the right adware-related files can be challenging. With the instructions, given in the removal guide below, however, you don’t need to be an expert to eliminate the annoying software Just closely follow them step by step and pay attention to the smallest details because, at some point, you will be dealing with major system files. Make sure you don’t delete something else than the adware by mistake as this may cause malfunction of the PC. In case of doubt, use the special Right Coupon Popup removal tool to scan your system and safely eliminate what is left.
