Savings Scout

Have you downloaded Savings Scout from savings-scout.com? You must have been lured into acquiring this program because of the promises to help you save money when shopping online. Do you know how this plugin works? As soon as you click the download button and activate the application – it starts collecting information about your browsing activity. The plugin can discover the sites you visit, the advertisements you click on, the search engines you browse, etc. All of this information can be used to present you with personalized advertisements. It can also be used to flood you with supposedly interesting and useful online coupons. Please continue reading to learn how to remove these coupons and delete Savings Scout.

Are you familiar with Innovative Apps? This is the company which has developed Savings Scout, as well as many other coupon-generating plugins, including Deal Spy, Vid Saver and Deal Vault. All of these programs act in the same manner because they have been developed by the same people on the same infamous Crossrider platform. In most cases, these plugins are not considered to be extremely safe to run because their privacy policies indicate that links provided through virtual coupons could route you to unreliable and potentially dangerous sources. Needless to say, this is not what you want happening.

Savings Scout coupons pop-up whenever you are browsing amazon.com, ebay.com and other well-known and respectable online shopping sites. According to our research, not always do these coupons help you save money, which indicates that the add-on is not as beneficial as it is claimed to be. Do you know what could happen if one of these coupons was provided by a mischievous third-party company? It is possible that you could get redirected to a website offering to install some free, too-good-to-be-true application which, in reality, is just a malignant computer infection. If you are being offered something like this, you need to terminate any browsing sessions you have open. If you have already downloaded freeware linked to the plugin’s coupons – scan the PC because there could be malware you may need to remove.

If you install the reliable, automatic malware detection and removal application SpyHunter, you will have Savings Scout removed in no time. If you are not ready to invest in authentic security software which could shield you from truly dangerous schemers’ activity – follow the manual removal instructions below. Please be sure to leave a comment if you face any obstacles.
