- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
There are a lot of programs and applications that you should not install on your PC. PriveteMacDeal is one of them. It is an adware program that generates commercial advertisements when you access popular web stores. For the most part, these commercial ads are simply annoying, but in the worst case, it may lead to serious computer security problems and even personal data leaks. Therefore, the sooner you remove PriveteMacDeal from your computer, the better. If you do not remove it on time, you might face dangerous consequences.
PriveteMacDeal is based on Justplugit engine. It has an official homepage at privetemacdeal.info and, surprisingly, the direct download link does work. What is more, this application is also often distributed through third-party installers such as Vittalia, Amonetize and Installrex. Judging from these features, we could say that PriveteMacDeal is very similar to QueenCoupon, RocketCoupon, RoyalShopperApp and a number of other adware programs from the same group. However, there is something completely different about PriveteMacDeal – this application targets Apple Mac computers.
During the installation, it downloads a .dmg file for Macintosh Disk Image. When the installation is complete, PriveteMacDeal will start displaying commercial pop-ups on Safari web browser. Web banners, random pop-ups and coupons will appear on your screen when you browse Amazon, Target, eBay and similar popular shopping sites. The main problem with PriveteMacDeal is that it cannot be held responsible for a third-party content, so it cannot check whether all the commercial ads are safe or not.
You will notice that PriveteMacDeal ads are often related to your likes and preferences. That is so because this application can collect data on your web browsing habits and then generate ads based on the gathered information. This way PriveteMacDeal increases the chance of you clicking its ads, but as it has been mentioned above, that would not be a good idea. Even if you do land on a new shopping website after having click some ad, make sure that website is safe and reliable before you place an order.
PriveteMacDeal might be used by fake websites to lure unsuspecting users. If you hastily fill out a purchase form, you might inadvertently reveal your personal information to malevolent third parties. Consequently, you could experience a personal data theft or even some money loss. It is plain to see that there is no use trying to utilize PriveteMacDeal. Simply follow the instructions below and uninstall PriveteMacDeal from your browser. For any further questions, feel free to leave us a comment.
