What is DailyPrize?

DailyPrize is one of those programs that should not be trusted. Despite the fact that it cannot harm your computer’s operating system, it may present you with sponsored advertisements, it may expose your PC to really suspicious websites, it may install cookies on your computer and initiate other suspicious activities due to which it has officially been listed as an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Usually, it is distributed in a bundle with other freewares and may be disclosed in a really suspicious way. Therefore, if you fail to monitor the installation of a freeware, you may easily end up with this adware on your PC. If it manages to enter the system, it may hijack the most popular web browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer), corrupt various settings and install cookies on each of them. Right after that, it may start collecting your search terms, mostly visited websites, data that you enter to them, clicks, IP address, email address, PC’s location and similar information. Do not underestimate the fact that gathered information is personally non-identifiable because it may also be used for suspicious purposes, such as preparation of customized advertisements or spam. Unfortunately, by clicking on the ‘Ads by DailyPrize’, ‘DailyPrize Ads’ ‘DailyPrize Deals’ and similar messages, you risk being rerouted to really suspicious websites that has nothing in common with deals, discounts, coupons and similar things. In the worst case scenario, DailyPrize redirects may even cause virus or malware infiltration. Having this in mind, you should not even consider keeping this adware on your machine.

Of course, you may remove DailyPrize virus from the system manually. However, the easiest and the most reliable way to get rid of this app is to run a full system scan with a reliable anti-spyware. If you are using Windows OS, we recommend using Reimage. For those who use computers based on Mac OS X, we can offer Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus.

How can DailyPrize hijack my computer?

DailyPrize is yet another deceptive application that spreads by means of other freewares or, in other words, by ‘bundling’. It means that one of its tasks is to trick people into installing it without being noticed. There are hundreds or even thousands of browser add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions that spread bundled with other freewares and sharewares. Therefore, if you want to keep your computer PUP-free and maintain your cyber security, you have to check every freeware before installing it. For that, we recommend reading all information about the program that you opt for and always rely on Advanced or Custom installation option. Besides, you should pay close attention to every detail in order to detect and opt out of ‘additional components’ along the way. If you have failed to install a freeware and ended up with DailyPrize adware on your PC, you should follow the guide, which is given down below and perform every step in a right order:
