MySafeSavings is a bothersome adware application, and it is not that easy to remove. Apparently, it is impossible to uninstall it through Control Panel. Visiting mysafesavings.com will not help either because it looks like the official site cannot be loaded for some time now. After testing the program, our specialists found out that it might be spread through bundled installers, and you may have installed it unknowingly. If you wish to erase the adware, we will provide you with manual removal instructions, but if it seems too difficult, you can delete it with an antimalware tool too. The application itself is not that dangerous, but it displays third-party advertising that could lead you to possibly harmful sites. Also, it comes from unknown publishers, so it is not an application we would recommend you to have on your system.
The official site is unreachable, so it is impossible to download the application from it. We believe that this adware is spread with bundled installers in doubtful file-sharing websites. If you happened to download free software from the Internet, you might have installed MySafeSavings together. Bundled installers are those that suggest you other programs besides the main one. Although they come as suggestions, not every user manages to notice these additional programs or to deselect them. Therefore, if you do not recall installing the adware, you may have overlooked it in the setup wizard.
When the application enters your system, you should notice various pop-ups and other kinds of advertisements. These ads should appear from time to time when you search the Internet. Some of them could lead you to harmless websites, but since they are from third-party partners, these ads could redirect you to possibly dangerous sites that might contain malware; such as viruses, Trojans, worms, and so on. However that is not all, some third-party sites could gather your sensitive information, e.g. email address, telephone number, various passwords, etc. Moreover, there is a chance that the ads could promote similar adware or other suspicious applications, such as browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs. Since such software applications often pretends to be useful tools, you should be very carefully and search for more information about it, especially if you see any application advertised in one of the MySafeSavings ads.
All in all, there are some risks you have to consider before deciding if you want to remove the application, although we doubt that you would want to keep a program whose primary task is to display third-party ads. Especially, when the ads could promote suspicious software or redirect you to possibly harmful web pages. The application cannot be removed via Control Panel, but you can delete its created folders and Registry keys from your computer.
