Remove Internet Cupom (Simple Removal Guide)

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - - | Type: Adware

Internet Cupom is a typical ad-supported application that promises one thing and does another. This rogue application seeks to convince computer users that it is an excellent tool that can deliver newest and greatest online shopping deals, coupons, discount codes, and price comparisons while the users browse online shopping websites. The way this adware application works is very similar to BonusBerry, DiscountTime, or Deals Finder. If you want to get more information on Internet Cupom, please continue reading.

Why is it important to keep your computer clean of apps like Internet Cupom?

You should never allow to install programs like Internet Cupom or any other programs that promise to send you best shopping deals. In general, such programs are called adware, and they are highly unreliable. They can send a uncountable number of ads, and more than half of them are fake and misleading. Internet Cupom is a free program, but it gains revenue from third-party companies that sponsor it. In exchange for the financial support, Internet Cupom advertises these companies and their websites. Moreover, this adware app uses a tricky method to attract PC users to click on its ads – it collects information about the user’s web browsing activity and his or hers habits. It finds out what are user’s most visited websites, what keywords does the user use to search for something online, and even more browsing-related information. Such data makes it easier to understand what interests the victim; therefore, Internet Cupom generates targeted ads and displays them for the victim while he or she uses the Internet browser. By the way, this rogue application can affect all web browsers:

  • Mozilla Firefox,
  • Google Chrome,
  • Opera,
  • Safari,
  • Internet Explorer.

It affects them by installing its extension to all of these Internet browsers, and then the user receives “ads by Internet Cupom,” “Internet Cupom ads,” “powered by Internet Cupom” and “brought to you by Internet Cupom” advertisements while using these web browsers.

Questions about Internet Cupom

Be careful and try NOT to click on such ads. They contain hyperlinks and can redirect you to suspicious web sources; sadly, no one knows if such sources are reliable and safe. In most cases, computer users complain that fake ads by various adware lead them to websites that promote questionable software and software updates. Such programs can be infectious, so it is the best to stay away from offers to install unfamiliar freeware. We strongly recommend removing Internet Cupom, because ads by this program can open dangerous web pages on your screen and you can accidentally initiate an installation of an infectious program with just one click on a wrong website spot. We suggest Reimage software to remove Internet Cupom PUP and to increase your computer’s security level.
