CostMin

CostMin is a browser add-on which is aimed at providing you with special deals and coupons. According the presentation of the tool, it will help you save your money while shopping on the Internet. The application works on Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox and provides coupons while you are browsing online shops. Malware researchers recommend that you remove CostMit from the computer because it may collect particular information and share it with third parties.

Like CouponBuddy or DealSpy, CostMit monitors your search queries while you are browsing ebay.com, amazon.com, and many other websites. It recognizes the website and attempts to find out what coupons or special offers are available on the site.

Keep in mind that CostMin may be used by third-party partners to send you advertisements. Moreover, they may also use cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies in order to find out your browsing habits and provide you with advertisements that match your interests.  If you click on a suspicious advertisement and land on some unknown website, it is advisable to close it immediately in order not to prevent computer infections.

As to the data collection, it is claimed that CostMin monitors users in order to improve the service, enhance the quality of the browser plug-in, and provide them with periodic emails if they provide their email address. Basically, the information that is collected by CostMin includes your clicks, search terms, the details of the websites you visit, and the like; however, it is possible that CostMin may acquire some personally identifiable information, which may be used for sending targeted advertisements and marketing material. If you do not want to be monitored and targeted by the third-parties as a potential customer, remove CostMin from the computer as soon as you can.

The removal of the application should be carried as soon as possible if it has been installed accidentally. Such programs as CostMin are very often bundled with freeware, so if you want to prevent the installation of an additional program, first you should be very attentive while reading the terms of use. Second, you should make sure that your computer is protected against various computer threats.

We recommend that you implement SpyHunter because this application is capable of CostMin removal. Save your time and money – invest in this application and remove the threat in no time. SpyHunter will fight various infections off, which means that you will be able to browse the Internet safely.
