If you are an avid online shopper, you will most probably look for various deals and discount offers in order to save money. DropinSavings is an adware application that promises to help you purchase your favorite goods at an optimal price. This application is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. It is not a computer virus, but if you are security-minded user, you will make sure that you remove DropinSavings from your system as soon as possible. Adware programs are often exploited by cybercriminals so you cannot take the risk.
According to the information at the official website via dropinsavings.com, the DropinSavings application is free and easy to download. When you download and install it onto your computer, you can just “go about your shopping as usual” because when DropinSavings has “coupons available for the site you are on,” it will notify you with its toolbar. It all sounds simple and beneficial, but the problem is that the official website download button does not work. Clicking it simply makes a pop-up box appear saying “DropinSavings is no longer available.” How, then, does DropinSavings enter your system?
Perhaps we should point out there are two versions of DropinSavings adware out there. One is created by Innovative Apps or Engaging Apps (just like Deal Boat, Savings Addon, Deal Ply and other apps from the same family). The other is developed by Exciting Apps. However, disregarding the fact which version of DropinSavings you are infected with, both of them usually come bundled with freeware that you download at third-party websites. The difference is that DropinSavings by Innovative Apps has an installer, and you can choose whether you want the application installed or not. DropinSavings by Exciting Apps, on the other hand, enter your system silently and constantly tries to redirect you to Browser Guardian’s webpage.
However, it does not matter which version of DropinSavings was installed on your PC. The bottom line is that this application cannot be trusted as it collects data on your web browsing habits, and then displays customized commercial ads. DropinSavings needs to you to click its ads as this is the way this application generates financial profit for its creators. Nevertheless, adware applications do not review the ad content, and their ads are often embedded with outgoing links that might lead users to potentially corrupted websites.
If you want to protect your system and your personal data from potential third-party exploitation, you have to uninstall DropinSavings right now. Due to the fact that this program arrives bundled with other freeware, you should run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner to determine whether there are additional unwanted applications on board. Terminate all the potential threats immediately.
