What Are Ads by DigiCoupon?

Ads by DigiCouponIf you find that pop-up and banner ads have started appearing with the label “Ads by DigiCoupon,” then there definitely is adware on your computer. The program DigiCoupon’s supposed purpose is to help you with your online shopping by offering you coupons for shopping websites. This way, users are also supposed to save time. The program may seem helpful, but it is strongly recommended that you remove it from your computer. Adware programs are known to act as security vulnerabilities. What is more, they will not be helpful at all.

What Do Ads by DigiCoupon Do?

Although DigiCoupon’s official website claims that it is only available for Google Chrome, do not be surprised if they appear on Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. The adware will present pop-up and banner ads. These will really present deals, discounts, and promotions. The items they show may even be related to your browsing. This is due to the fact that adware programs are able to collect information stored on cookies, your browsing history, search queries, IP address, etc. Also, the collected information can be shared with third parties.

What Is the Harm of Ads by DigiCoupon?

Clicking on Ads by DigiCoupon is not recommended. This is due to the fact that you cannot be sure that they will take you to reliable websites. It is quite possible that some of them will lead to web pages that are run by cyber criminals. This is because the adware developers do not care to check the websites their product promotes and their reliability. This allows schemers to exploit the applications and lure users onto their harmful pages. Some websites will try to trick you into sharing your personal and financial details by claiming you have won some prize. Other harmful websites will try to infect your system with malware and steal your information that way. This is why you have to remove Ads by DigiCoupon from your computer as soon as possible.

How Did Ads by DigiCoupon End Up on My PC?

It is highly unlikely that you have downloaded and installed the adware willingly. Even if you have found its official website, downloading it from there is not possible. Adware programs, however, are known to use a method called bundling to enter systems. This means that it will be attached to freeware installers. If you are not careful while installing free applications, then there is a serious possibility that you will accidentally install additional programs such as DigiCoupon by mistake. A way to avoid this is by selecting the Advanced/Custom installation option. This way, you will be shown the additional programs that are about to be installed, and you will have the opportunity to decline the installation.

How to Remove Ads by DigiCoupon

You can get rid of the adware just by uninstalling it the way you would any other program. What you have to do is go to Control Panel, open the list of programs, find DigiCoupon, and uninstall it. Keep in mind that the program may be presented as DiigiCouppon, DiggicouPpon, or something similar. An important thing to keep in mind is that there may be other unwanted programs on your computer. It is also possible for malware to have entered it. If it was easy for Ads by DigiCoupon to infiltrate the system, then it will be even easier for infections. This is why we recommend that users acquire powerful AV software that will clean their system and make sure that no unwanted programs enter it again.
