removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as Ads by CoupoExtension, CoupoExtension virus, CoupoExtension adware | Type: Adware

What is CoupoExtension?

CoupoExtension belongs to the group of programs that can be called ‘shopping helpers’. It is promoted as a browser plug-in that is supposed to display coupons, inform about relevant deals, discounts, the lowest prices and similar things. Such information should be displayed in the forms of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, in-text links, etc. when is visiting online shopping websites, such as Amazon, WaltMart, eBay and so on. CoupoExtension has lots of clones, including Digital More, Coupon Buddy, DigiSaver, Reverse Page and many others, which means that it’s not a genuine program what so ever. In reality, it’s nothing else but just another adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which may display sponsored advertisements for you and may continuously reroute you to predetermined websites. It has been designed by suspicious third-parties, which seek to increase page rank, sales or collect clicks. Therefore, no matter if you receive appealing advertisements marked as ‘Ads by CoupoExtension’, ‘CoupoExtension Ads’, ‘CoupoExtension Deals’, you should not fully trust them because they may be linked to the websites containing both reliable and unsafe content. In addition to that, this suspicious browser add-on may collect information related to your browsing habits. The following data may be collected: IP address, PC’s geographical location, email address, search terms, mostly visited websites, data entered in them, clicks, browser’s type, language, etc. Despite the fact that such information is considered to be non-personal, we highly do not recommend disclosing it to third parties because they may apply it for unfair purposes, such as generating misleading ads or even spam. Finally, CoupoExtension virus is blamed for affecting web browser’s performance in a negative way and may even serve as a backdoor for other suspicious programs. Therefore, remove CoupoExtension virus without any delay. For a quick and warranted PUP and virus removal, we recommend using Reimage (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac OS X).

How can CoupoExtension hijack my computer?

CoupoExtension has been attributed to the PUP (potentially unwanted program) category due to the fact that it seldom spreads as an individual application. Usually, it is detected on such popular third-party download websites as,,,, etc. attached to other third-party software. This software marketing method is widely used; therefore, no matter what kind of free program and from what kind of website do you opt for installing, make a small research on it and follow its installation as carefully as possible. We highly recommend reading EULA, Privacy Policy, users’ reports and other accessible information. Besides, Advanced or Custom installation should be selected because it is set to expand the process and disclose all available boxes. In contrast, avoid Quick or Basic installation because it may disclose ‘optional downloads’ in a misleading manner and you might be tricked into installing them without realizing that. To conclude, NEVER rush the installation!! Read all the terms and unmark ticks notifying installation of CoupoExtension or any other suspicious program.
