Coupon Pigeon

If you have noticed Coupon Pigeon browser extension running on your Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome browsers but you have not installed the application yourself, it is likely that the add-on has been dropped illegally. Even though the source of the application (coupon-pigeon.com) and the extension itself are often treated as authentic software, out researchers categorize it as adware. Overall, it is recommended to remove Coupon Pigeon from the browsers and the PC because this devious program may collect information about your virtual activities, sell this data to affiliate third-parties and flood you with misleading advertisements. Please see an excerpt from the Privacy Policy:

When you access or use the Site, Crossrider may use industry-wide technologies such as "cookies" and Flash (or similar technologies) which stores certain information on your computer ("Local Storage") and which will allow us to enable automatic activation of certain features, and make your experience on the Site and its services much more convenient and effortless.

Also known as Adware.CouponPigeon, the application is a creation of Innovative Apps and 215 Apps. These companies have developed Download Savings, Coupon Cactus, Discount Dragon and other well known extensions which supposedly have been created to help you save your own money. Do you shop online frequently? Do you wish to find better saving deals? Then you may be attracted by the slogan of Coupon Pigeon – ‘Save more money when you shop online’.

What would happen if you disabled/removed the unwanted cookies? The suspicious program would no longer provide you with any benefits, which is why you should delete Coupon Pigeon altogether.
