There are different types of adware released by the same publisher. Some programs may look like useful ad blockers, others like useful coupon plug-ins, but you have to think twice before using programs from unknown sources. DigiCoupon is one of those applications that should not be on your PC. It is an adware app that can inadvertently expose you to potential computer security threats. If you are a computer security-minded user, you will remove DigiCoupon from your computer immediately. After manual removal, you should check your PC for other unwanted programs because such adware apps seldom come alone.
Based on its distribution methods and overall behavior, we can see that DigiCoupon is very similar to AllTubeNoAds adware application. The main difference is that the latter tries to pass for a YouTube ad blocker, while DigiCoupon is promoted as coupon plug-in that can help you save money on your purchases online. Either way, the bottom line is that you must avoid similar applications because no good can come of it.
Users often install DigiCoupon onto their computers without even realizing it. You may think that it is possible to download this program at digicoupon.info, but it is not the case. Just like the rest of the adware programs from the same group, DigiCoupon is distributed bundled with freeware. It means that when you install this application on your PC, you install a number of other potentially unwanted and perhaps even dangerous applications.
Such programs usually move around with DomalQ installers. You will encounter these third-party installers when you see commercial pop-ups on affiliate websites. If you are urged to download and install the Adobe Flash player or Java plug-in update, check whether the official vendor really offers an update. If not, you will most probably download DomalQ installer with a list of unwanted programs onto your PC. DigiCoupon will be one of them.
Once you launch the installation, DigiCoupon will enter the PC automatically, and it will add extensions to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. The application will start collecting information on your web browsing habits, and when it has enough data, it will make use of that to display customized commercial ads. DigiCoupon does not exhibit any illegal behavior, but this application balances on the verge of being a potential computer security threat.
Adware programs are often exploited by cybercriminals, so the best way to protect your PC from harm would be removing DigiCoupon and similar programs right now. Stay away from unfamiliar websites and do perform regular computer scans with a licensed malware detection and removal tool.
