EasyCouponsAccess is a potentially unwanted program, and even though it is not considered to be malicious, it does not mean users should be careless with it. Our specialists report that the application might offer to install more potentially unwanted programs, such as QuickMapsAndDirections or Search Encrypt. Also, it appears the program could redirect search queries to search.heasycouponsaccess.com, which might use a modified Yahoo search engine to display gathered results. It is possible that such results could be injected with third-party advertisements that you would not appear when surfing with the original search.yahoo.com. If you want to keep your system clean and do not wish to take any chances, you may want to get rid of this potentially unwanted program. To delete EasyCouponsAccess manually, you should use the instructions located below. On the other hand, if you want to know more about this extension, we recommend reading our full report first.
Firstly, it is vital to discuss where EasyCouponsAccess might come from. A lot of potentially unwanted programs are spread through unreliable file-sharing web pages, advertisements, and so on. For instance, the extension could be bundled with some other tool. In which case it is possible some users could install it accidentally if they do not pay attention to the installation process. As you see, some installers mention bundled software only if a user picks advanced installation settings that users who are in a hurry tend to skip them. If you are among such users, we highly recommend investing a couple of minutes to read all available information and terms when installing new programs. If you see any bundled applications make sure you research them before agreeing to install them to avoid downloading unreliable software. Of course, having a reliable antimalware tool that could warn you about potential threats would be a good idea too.
During its installation, EasyCouponsAccess might ask users if they wish to install more tools. As said earlier, the problem is that the offered applications might be classified as potentially unwanted programs too. Plus, our researchers say the extension might be pushy when suggesting to installing additional applications. After the installation is over, the plugin should add a toolbar below a browser’s address bar. This toolbar should appear on all browsers that the application is compatible with, which are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Another change users who install EasyCouponsAccess ought to notice is that their homepage, search engine, or new tab page could have been replaced with search.heasycouponsaccess.com. It is vital to know that this search engine might redirect to a modified Yahoo search engine. Meaning, the results you receive could be presented by Yahoo, but they might be injected with potentially unwanted program’s content, for example, third-party advertisements.
We do not say that EasyCouponsAccess search engine will necessarily show third-party advertising, but there is a chance it could and it is possible that such content could come from unknown sources. Therefore, it might be smart to be careful with advertisements if you do come across them while surfing with search.heasycouponsaccess.com. For instance, third-party ads could lead to websites distributing other potentially unwanted programs, inviting to participate in suspicious surveys or lotteries, and so on.
If, all in all, EasyCouponsAccess does not look trustworthy to you and you do not wish to leave it on your system, we advise deleting it. One of the ways to get rid of this potentially unwanted program is to remove it from your browser’s extensions menu or via Control Panel if you use Internet Explorer. If you have no idea how to do so, we encourage you to use our deletion instructions that we provide at the end of this paragraph. Also, users can remove EasyCouponsAccess with a reliable antimalware tool of their choice. All you have to do is install a tool you trust, perform a full system scan with it, and wait till it displays scanning results. Normally, antimalware tools provide a deletion button next to the results to help users erase all identified threats at the same time.
