What is Underground Coupon and how does it work?

Underground Coupon program seeks to present itself as a useful tool to save time and money while shopping online. It pretends to be a beneficial program to find best grocery shopping deals while in reality it is yet just another potentially unwanted program (PUP) that seeks to trick inexperienced computer users into thinking that it is a reliable software. Nonetheless, we want to inform you that programs that promise to save your time and money while shopping online are usually just potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that seek to make you click on the ads that they generate. In most cases, such ads are created to attract the user to click on them. The user expects to see the page that provides the “offer,” but in most cases, gets redirected to suspicious third-party websites.

It happens because Underground Coupon adware is a sponsored program, which gains income by creating web traffic to third-party websites. That basically means that whenever you click on “ads by Underground Coupon,” “Underground Coupon offer,” “Underground Coupon ads” or similarly entitled pop-ups or banners, you might end up on an entirely unexpected web source. Be careful, because some of the Underground Coupon PUP related sites might promote critical programs, so be mindful and do not agree to install questionable content. These websites sometimes offer free programs or program updates, so make sure you do not fall for such dubious proposals to get software charge-free.
