Offers Chasers

Offers Chasers appears to be yet another potentially unwanted program created to show users targeted advertising and most likely generate advertising revenue from their clicks. Therefore, after installing it, you may expect to see a lot of irritating coupons, pop-ups, banners, and other offers from the software’s third-party partners. What is even worse is that there is a possibility some of the targeted ads might be malicious. Thus, despite what the application’s description says we do not think Offers Chasers should be considered as a reliable tool and if you continue reading our article we will explain to you why we believe so. Moreover, at the end of the text you will find instructions showing how to eliminate the potentially unwanted program if you think it is not worthy of your trust.

Offers Chasers has an official website called offerschasers.com. It is one of the places where users can download the potentially unwanted program. Our researchers are not one hundred percent sure, but from their experience with similar applications they believe Offers Chasers might be spread through bundled software installers as well or with the help of other tools that might show similar advertising content. In any case, once it is installed it may change your browser’s homepage, new tab page, or default search provider with offerschasers.com/ext/index.html so it could show users advertising content. However, it is important to mention so far the program works only on Google Chrome, which means it cannot affect browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.

Talking about the application’s homepage, the software’s creators encourage you to use the tool there by saying “quite searching the web for numerous offers and deals every time.shopperstab will make sure that the deals you’re looking for find you.” What is unusual about this quote is that the program is being called “shopperstab” instead of Offers Chasers. Our researchers say it is quite possible the software might be distributed under different names. For example, we were able to find it on the Chrome Web Store page where the extension seems to be called simply “New Tab” (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/new-tab/djejecgmagpebkjpmagmddclknbkpcjm). Yet, the given description calls it Offers Chasers and the provided link to the add-on’s Privacy Policy again leads to offerschasers.com.

Furthermore, another thing that caught our attention was the fact the potentially unwanted program’s website claims the tool is “Safe and easy to use.” We do not doubt the part of being easy to use is correct, but we do not think it can be considered to be safe. After all, the application might provide numerous coupons and other advertising content originating from various third-party web pages. Unfortunately, the tools developers say they do not make any warranties regarding third party content, such as its accuracy, safety of use, etc. It might mean the ads could be provided to the user without reviewing whether they are safe to interact with. If this appears to be true, some of the advertisements could promote other potentially unwanted programs, adware, browser hijackers, or even malicious software, fake lotteries or surveys, and so on.

All things considered, it is difficult to say how much use one could have from a tool that could advertise both useful and malicious content, but it seems to us the possibility of finding a few valuable advertisements is just not worth taking any risks. If you would rather keep your computer safe and look for better deals on your own or with a more reliable application, we advise you not to hesitate anymore and erase Offers Chasers at once. To do so manually, our researchers recommend deleting all suspicious browser extensions related to this potentially unwanted program and the instructions available below will show you how to do this.
