DealCola

If you have downloaded DealCola from dealcola.com, your browsing activity is possibly tracked by its developers and their affiliates. Even though it is indicated that such activity is required to provide you with the best services, there is no doubt that there are certain security risks involved. What if the collected information was personally identifiable? What if it was leaked to malicious parties? What if the application promoted advertisements supported by cyber criminals? These are the questions you should ask yourself before installing any software which might collect information about your browsing habits. Unfortunately, most computer users would forget to think about this after learning that the add-on can help find saving deals when shopping online. Please continue reading to learn why trusting the displayed coupons could be dangerous and why DealCola removal should be performed right away.

As it is stated in the official download page, you will be starting to save money the moment you download the application onto the computer. Unfortunately, as our researchers have discovered, the coupons do not just start flooding with greatest deals as it is promised. If DealCola did work in regular manner, you would notice all sorts of different offers. Here is an excerpt from the Privacy Policy:

The Plugin currently displays several basic types of advertising: (1) sponsored links, (2) traditional display advertisements, such as banner ads, "pop-unders" and interstitial ads, (3) coupons, and (4) video targeted ads. The sponsored links may sometimes appear as in-text advertising. Sponsored links may also be displayed in response to keyword searches you enter through Google, Bing and other search engines.

As you can tell from this excerpt, the suspicious plugin is supported by third parties whose links are presented with the help of DealCola. Since these parties may follow different privacy policies, it is not recommended that you click on the presented sponsored search results, displayed advertisements and various suspicious deals. If you decide to trust some of these online offers you need to be extra cautious. Do not download offered software before researching it, and never share information which might be personally identifiable, like full name and email address. Unfortunately, careless activity could easily lead to virtual protection breaching and malicious activity.

Are you comfortable with the fact that unknown parties could be tracking your activity and presenting you with potentially misleading offers? If you are not, we recommend that you install automatic malware detection and removal software to ensure that your virtual security is guarded reliably. Needless to say, if you are tired of different pop-ups and deals showing up on your desktop, it would be best to delete DealCola from the PC.
