removal by Julie Splinters - - | Type: Adware

Right Coupon is the program categorized as adware because it fills the screen with useless deals and shopping online offers

Right Coupon Right Coupon ads is the cyber intruder that was created by a company called RightCoupon. It claims to save money for the person by displaying deals and offers. Right Coupon pop-up ads is the adware program that gets bundled and delivered with the help of freeware programs. Unfortunately, this cyber threat cannot be noticed immediately after the infiltration, so you cannot be sure how long the PUP has been running in the background when you encounter the first pop-up or redirect to the shady advertising service. There is a huge possibility that your machine got affected a while ago, and these commercial content redirects are the last symptoms of other programs. Some free downloads do not adequately disclose other software that is pre-bundled, but you may find a few applications besides this adware already installed on the machine by scanning the system with anti-malware tool. Once the program is installed it can install in-browser add-ons, extensions, toolbars directly or open the way for intruders.

Since Right Coupon is focused on generating pay-per-click revenue it only focuses on creating tons of redirects, content that you see on the machine doesn't have any value. Pop-ups can be later geared towards your preferences and browsing habits, but at first, PUP shows random promotions to have the ability to collect that needed data for later advertising. 

Right Coupon is adware which provides various discount coupons and offers while you are shopping online. Unfortunately, it’s one of many other suspicious tools that are created only for profiting developers. This ad-supported software[1] is similar to other applications, such as Search.Coupons-Bar, Coupon Buddy or CouponDropDown. They are beneficial only for developers and cause lots of inconveniences for computer users.

So-called Right Coupon virus often steps into computers without letting its users know about that. It spreads bundled just like any other potentially unwanted program – bundled with freeware or shareware. Once inside, this program might hijack all installed web browsers, and since then your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer will be flooded with ads.

Right Coupon removal is the only option that can help to avoid lots of different types of online advertisements[2] that offer various great deals and discount coupons. It may seem useful, but over time those redirects keep you from seeing anything else on the screen and eventually damages the machine making your device useless.  Right CouponOur expert demonstrates banners that Right Coupon adware displays. These ads are typically marked as "Ads by Right Coupon." If you happen to see ads, labeled as “Ads by XXX,” “Brought to You By XXX,” “Powered by XXX” or similarly, you should avoid clicking them. Usually, they are fake and misleading ads[2] that seek to encourage users clicking on them because each click generates a particular amount of money for the developers. Developers may do not play fairly and deliver ads that might lead to infected websites. For this reason, it’s also important to talk about concerning redirect tendencies related to Right Coupon.

While browsing the Internet or visiting online stores, such as eBay or Amazon, users can see additional pop-up ads. These Right Coupon ads look reliable and similar to other online advertisements. However, some of them might suggest offers that seem “too good to be true.”

We don't recommend trusting Right Coupon adware because its ads may be displayed on your PC's desktop just for making you visit specific sites that are actively seeking to increase the number of their visitors or their page rank. Besides, after a click on any ad, you may be redirected to the third-party website that is created for spreading bigger or smaller malware[3].

Adware programs are capable of tracking data, so Right Coupon can use aggregated information about users to deliver relevant and interesting content. After monitoring and analyzing users’ search queries and frequently visited websites, adware delivers interest-based ads and expects more clicks.

Instead of clicking these ads, you should remove Right Coupon from the computer with the help of Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego. This is a useless tool/ service that cannot be valuable for your machine in any way, so make sure to get rid of the PUP as soon as possible

PUP infiltration happens without your permission

As we already mentioned, you can let this add-on step in while downloading various freeware, shareware, and third-party programs. These programs are considered the main causes of infiltration of adware-type programs. These browser hijackers often rely on questionable and unfair distribution methods that are called “bundling.”[4]

Our security experts strongly recommend stopping being naive when installing free and questionable programs from unknown sources. You should follow each installation step of the freeware and avoid basic, quick or recommended installation methods.

Try selecting advanced or similar installation option for better understanding what sort of program you are installing and what comes attached to it. Unmark all questionable accessories you don't want to install, including PDF Creators, video streaming software, and similar programs.

If adware has already hijacked your system and you are experiencing additional pop-ups or other forms of visual advertisements, you can easily and safely remove it by following instructions presented below.

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.

    I only have unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, profane, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable things to say to these folk who think that marketing via right Coupon is a good idea…..

    However, aside from this confounded virii I have also advertising popups by “Exerunner” to deal with, neither respond to all the recommended cures. It only seems to infect Google Chrome which Google must know what is doing this… So where is there an update? Where is any evidence they care.

    I use AGV and Spyhunter…. doh! Nothing works.

    I had the same experience. Only with Chrome and nothing seemed to work. So I uninstalled Chrome, rebooted and reinstalled Chrome. So far, this is working.
