Rcoupon is a browser add-on that promises to help you save money while shopping online. Loads of other adware applications are marketed in this manner and just like others Rcoupon will not do what it obliges to. Dubious third-party advertisements and annoying pop-ups are all that Rcoupon provides users with; thus, making surfing the web a bothersome task. But that’s not all; usually adware programs are related to various internet-based infections. Running Rcoupon, or any other adware application on your PC increases the chance of infecting your system with some malware significantly. Removal of Rcoupon is a must in order to retain your system clean and secure. Virtual security tips and removal instructions are provided within this report.
Since Rcoupon is based on the JustPlugIt engine it is no surprise that it functions in a similar manner as its counterparts based on this engine (Maccouponfinder, Les2Pay, Lucky Coupon, ExstraCoupon, King Coupons, etc.). As soon as Rcoupon enters your PC it will install browser extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. Fortunately, an updated version of Google Chrome automatically disables the extensions. Unfortunately, that might not stop the adverts, and annoying pop-ups displayed by Rcoupon. The only way to stop the invasive activities for sure is remove the adware program completely.
What is more alarming than the annoying activities is that these adverts ad pop-ups could turn out to be malicious. Rcoupon could present you with a fake pop-up message urging you to update your Flash player. You should know that the actual Flash player updates itself automatically. Often such fake updates are used to install malware onto your PC. Avoid any pop-ups urging you to update anything on your computer. If you suspect any software being outdated visit the official developers’ website and see if any updates were issued recently. Do not risk infecting your system with unknown malware and remove Rcoupon without hesitation.

Often users obtain installers stuffed with dubious applications from dodgy third-party hosting websites. Avoiding them will certainly lower the risk of infecting your system in this particular manner. Download software from official developers’ websites only. Furthermore implement a trustworthy antimalware tool to safeguard your PC against any other infection.
