Dealbeaver ads – should you consider them dangerous?

Have noticed a suspicious button in your browser menu bar, displaying DB letters? If so, it probably means that your PC is infected with Dealbeaver virus. Besides, you probably have also noticed annoying web ads that appear in pop-up windows and new tabs, claiming that they are powered by Dealbeaver. If you are sure that you did not install this program by your choice, it means that you have accidentally downloaded it alongside other free programs, and gave it permission to hijack your computer. There are some reasons why we consider these ads untrustworthy and recommend staying away from them. These ads have only one target – to redirect users to sponsored sites, and get paid for users’ visits. Such monetization method is also known as a pay-per-click advertising model. It is better to keep your PC free of ad-supported programs that advertise various third-party websites because some of these ads might be untrustworthy. They can make you explore dangerous websites, which seem secure at first sight. Just to be sure that your PC stays safe, avoid clicking on these ads, and especially stay clear of sites that suggest updating your programs or installing new ones. Chances are, you might be tricked into installing malware!

Ads by Dealbeaver can annoy you

Questions about Dealbeaver ads

You probably wonder why these ads look so attractive and provide deals and discounts for items or services that you are interested in. The answer is quite simple – Dealbeaver adware collects non-personally identifiable information, such as clicks, IP address, browsing history, search queries, downloads, browser type and version, operating system used, and similar data. Based on all information it collects, this adware selects the certain set of advertisements by third-parties and starts displaying them for the user. As we have already mentioned, these ads might be untrustworthy, and that is why the decision to remove Dealbeaver might be the best in this situation. You can start the removal procedure manually and, if something does not go right, finish it automatically. To complete Dealbeaver removal, we suggest Reimage software.

How does this ad-supported program spread and how does it manage to get inside the computer system unnoticed?

Have you found out about Dealbeaver hijack recently and now you are wondering how did this program manage to infect your PC without your knowledge? These are the questions that many computer users ask themselves after they discover potentially unwanted programs (PUP) running on their systems. Typically, potentially unwanted software spreads together with other free software and can be installed alongside them. Of course, you can download this app from its official Internet site (German), too, however, it seems that many computer users infect their devices with this program unintentionally. If you want to learn how to avoid PUPs, follow these steps:

  1. After downloading a new program, read its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy documents thoroughly;
  2. Do not rush to install the software! Firstly, you must check Advanced or Custom settings and see if it does not promote any additional programs that you do not want to install;
  3. If the software suggests you to change your home and new tab page, install optional apps or browser add-ons, do not consider these extra pieces of software trustworthy. We recommend deselecting them, because, in most cases, it turns out that they are just potentially unwanted programs that cannot provide you with any beneficial features;
  4. Finish the installation then.
