Will DealPeak ads help me to spend less money during online shopping?

DealPeak is promoted as a useful browser add-on that helps to save money. It is supposed to offer the best deals and lowest prices for various products. However, this tool is classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP)[1] and adware.[2] Thus, if you are looking for the app that would help you to spend less during online shopping, it’s not the one. It has been entitled as DealPeak virus due to its negative features. It might infiltrate the system unnoticed, deliver an excessive amount of online ads, and track information. Instead of being handy for the users, this ad-supported program only helps developers to generate pay-per-click revenue. The program uses a “virtual layer” which allows placing third-party graphical content on each visited website. Thus, various pop-ups, advertising banners, in-text and other ads will make browsing the Web unbearable. Only DealPeak removal will help to escape these negative features. We recommend completing this task using Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego or other reputable anti-malware/anti-spyware program.

If you have noticed aggressive DealPeak ads, you should stay away from them as far as you can.[3] They might trick you into visiting suspicious, questionable and untrustworthy websites. When you click on a particular ad, you should end up on a site that gives you instructions how to use a discount. However, this adware might redirect you to phishing or infected sites where you might meet such cyber threats as ransomware.[4] What is more, DealPeak adware might be of tracking and recording browsing information, in order to use it for advertising reasons. It might collect what websites you often visit, how much time you spend there, what information have you looked for, what ads you clicked, and similar non-personally identifiable details. However, there’s always a risk that collected data might be shared or sold to third parties, affiliates or advertising networks. Thus, soon you might notice even more ads popping up on the browser or find the questionable newsletter in your inbox. Though it doesn’t matter whether you have installed this add-on yourself, or it sneaked unauthorized, you should remove DealPeak immediately. Adware removal will help to protect your PC from malware and your privacy on the Internet.[5]

When was this browser add-on installed on my browser?

DealPeak virus is not a real virus, so it cannot infiltrate the system itself. As we already told, it’s a potentially unwanted program. Just like regular programs, they are installed only if computer users allow it. This browser has an official website that offers to download this browser extension directly. However, there’s another way how it may infiltrate your computer. This infiltration method is called bundling. Free programs and games are an excellent method used for distributing potentially unwanted programs. In order to avoid DealPeak hijack and other questionable tools or add-ons, you can follow these simple steps. Step one: read terms of agreement policy section before installing freeware or shareware. Step two: try avoiding basic, quick or recommended installation method, or clicking next…next…next thru the entire installation. Step three: select advanced installation option. Step four: follow the entire installation process step by step. Step five: unmark every additional extension/plug-in/toolbar you don’t want to install. By following these simple five steps, you will have a much greater chance avoiding DealPeak and other unnecessary extensions.

How to uninstall DealPeak virus from the computer?

You can remove DealPeak from the PC just like any other program or browser extension. If you decide to get rid of it manually, please follow our prepared instructions carefully. Also, you should look for other questionable add-ons or applications. Surprisingly, adware programs sometimes can install other third-party apps without asking user’s permission. For this reason, we suggest automatic DealPeak removal option. Scanning the system with anti-malware or anti-spyware programs helps to identify and eliminate all questionable tools, add-ons or extensions within several minutes.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
