What is GetLucky browser extension and should you remove it?
« on: October 21, 2015, 02:41:53 pm »
GetLucky browser extension is developed to generate coupon codes, add them to the online orders and ensure savings to the users during their online shopping. This browser extension can be found on its official website downloadgetlucky(dot)com, at Google Chrome Web Store and bundled with other freeware installers. The last mentioned way of distribution is widespread as GetLucky is ad-supported. It is classified as adware and performs like one. Once it infiltrates the system, it installs a browser extension to all web browsers installed on the PC. Then GetLucky starts to collect non-personal information about the user’s Internet activity and generate ads. Having it either with or without your knowledge on the PC GetLucky browser extension may cause bad system performance. Furthermore, your non-personal information may be shared with third-party websites. Therefore, you become a target of their intrusive ads.
