MakeMeCoupon Distribution

Bundling of software is mostly applied for financial reasons. It means that developers included the third-party application in their product (for instance, a media player or PDF converter) to monetize a platform or to cover financial losses. Even though the method seems shady, it is entirely legal. The additional piece was mentioned in the EULA (End User License Agreement) but the user deprived himself of reading it when he opted for the automatic installer. However, under the ‘advanced’ option he has the chance to uncheck the potentially unwanted app.

MakeMeCoupon Description

Adware programs are not malicious. Nevertheless, they could become a gateway for further issues if the user leaves them running in the background for an uncertain time. The advertisements MakeMeCoupon provides may redirect the user to attack’s pages. No matter how luring the displayed coupons and offers may appear, clicking them is not considered a safe thing.
Furthermore, adware is known to employ session cookies that collect personally identifiable information. Aside from the unwanted display of ads, browser crashes and freezes are also possible to happen. All in all, adware apps interfere with the user’s online habits and may be quite annoying if not removed.
