WHAT IS SpaceCouponApp?

SpaceCouponApp is NOT malicious. It means that security vendors and people who firmly declare it to be a malicious computer threat are not right. In reality, it’s an adware and a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which may slither on your computer silently and initiate suspicious activities in order to promote affiliate websites. We believe that you are reading this article due to the fact that you have noticed suspicious-looking pop-ups and banners marked as ‘Ads by SpaceCouponApp’ or ‘ SpaceCouponApp Ads’ during your browsing. Yes, that’s the most prominent sign that this adware is hiding in your machine. If you want to make sure that it’s really inside the system, you should look whether Task Manager is running SpaceCouponApp.exe process and whether Add/Remove Programs folder includes a program named this way. If yes, then you should either remove it manually (a guide is given at the end of the article) or run a full system scan with Reimage (Windows OS) or Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (Mac OS X).

We do not consider keeping this adware on your computer because SpaceCouponApp adware may cause you not only inconveniences, but may also lead to identity theft or virus infiltration. Once installed it may start using cookies in order to gather information, as its developers claim, related to your browsing habits. Unfortunately, adwares are vulnerable to third parties, who may easily exploit cookies and misuse them for gathering personally identifiable data, which leakage may even cause identity theft.

In order to prevent that, you should ignore all advertisements no matter how appealing they may seem. We cannot state that each of the SpaceCouponApp ads will reroute you to unsafe sites; however, some of the certainly may.

HOW CAN SpaceCouponApp hijack MY COMPUTER?

In most of the cases, adware-type programs can be downloaded from their official websites, but it’s obvious that not all of them. SpaceCouponApp belongs to the group of adwares, which cannot be installed manually. It means that it’s distributed by other means. As we have managed to find, it’s commonly promoted via third-party download websites, such as,,,, etc. as an ‘optional download’ attached to various free programs. It might be detected inside download managers, PDF creators, media players, games and other free software, so it means that you have to be extra cautious when installing every freeware on your machine.
