- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
There are many programs that supposedly should help you find the best offers online, but Dealsy, unfortunately, is not one of them. This program enters your computer to redirect you to affiliated websites so that you would increase their traffic. With the increase in traffic, you help the people behind Dealsy make money via the pay-per-click system. That is not something unusual, but we have to remember that quite often such adware applications can be exploited by cyber criminals to promote malware-related websites. Therefore, it would be for the best to remove Dealsy from your computer, as you can never know how this situation could unfold.
While you are at it, you should also scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner. We are sure that you have several other programs on your system that would require your attention. The thing is that Dealsy does not get distributed via its official website. In fact, there is no such thing to begin with. We have encountered many programs from the same family that had official homepages, but Dealsy is not one of them. Nevertheless, it still comes from the same Multiplug family as DiscountExt, BrickEnforcer, OptiDiscount, and so on. These adware applications are based on the JustPlugIt engine, and they are distributed in software packages.
This means that Dealsy is not a computer virus as some users might think. It does not enter your system surreptitiously because you install this program yourself. It is just that you are not aware of that because the application comes in a bundle with various other programs. Our research shows that Dealsy usually gets distributed via the InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers. That is not something we have not known before, considering that almost all Multiplug applications employ these installers. The point is that you initiate the adware download when you browser torrent and p2p websites. Have you noticed just how many download buttons such sites have? It goes without saying that most of them are fake. Click any fake button and you will most probably initiate an adware download.
Thus, before you even know it, Dealsy adds an extension to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, and then starts tracking your online activity. The application makes use of tracking cookies to find out what sites you frequent and what you usually look for online. Once it has your profile generated, Dealsy assaults you with customized commercial advertisements that look like tailored shopping offers.
Our primary security concern is that most of those ads promote third-party content that has not been screened. Hence, some of the Dealsy ads might be embedded with links that lead to unfamiliar and sometimes even dangerous websites. No one would want to get infected with malware or experience a personal information leak, so you have to prevent that from happening in the early stages of this issue.
Access your Control Panel and remove Dealsy with ease. Do not forget to change your browser settings on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. We will show you how to do it in the instructions below. Should you encounter any difficulties while trying to get rid of this adware application, please leave us a message in the comment box.
