After testing the suspicious Couponsignal, it has been discovered that it uses the same web server as Baseflash and Okitspace, both of which are identified as ad-supported programs that require removal as well. These apps have several things in common. First of all, they rely on web cookies to track your browsing activity and figure out which ads/offers you are likely to be attracted to. This by itself is not a reason to delete Couponsignal, but you have to keep in mind that the data collected by tracking cookies could be accessed by unreliable third-parties, in which case the removal of Couponsignal would be crucial.
