OnlineLowDeals is promoted as a useful tool that will help the PC user save a lot of time and money by presenting him with the best deals and offers as he browses the Web. This online shopping assistant functionality may seem handy to many users, but malware experts classify OnlineLowDeals as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and recommend its removal. OnlineLowDeals employs a tricky infiltration method called “bundling” and generates numerous intrusive third-party advertisements that may expose the affected machine to further security issues. The application can be installed on the commonly used browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.).
OnlineLowDeals can be downloaded online, but it can also enter your computer bundled with other free of charge software you have downloaded online recently. Popular freeware download websites often employ the so called “download clients” to monetize their free services and boost their traffic. This inattentive download and installation of free programs may result in various adware or malware infiltrations. You can avoid unwanted installations by inspecting each stage of the installation process carefully and not granting permission to the installation of additional applications and programs. Each software installation should be performed through the Custom options, where the user can manage every step and have full transparency of the process.
Once installed, OnlineLowDeals injects a variety of annoying advertisements in the websites the user views – banner, pop-up and pop-under, inline text, coupons, comparison shopping, and transitional ads. Although these seem quite harmless, computer experts warn that third-party ads may expose your machine to serious security issues if you click on them. They may link you to potentially unsafe or corrupted websites and introduce malware to your PC.
In the OnlineLowDeals browser extension may track certain hardware and/or software information, like IP address, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, etc. Keep in mind that the collection of personally identifiable data is also possible. Just like many other adware applications, OnlineLowDeals may transfer the gathered information to third parties for marketing purposes.
