How Does Coolncheap Affect Your Computer?

After the successful installation of Coolncheap on your browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other commonly used browsers), it will generate various intrusive online ads, including pop-ups, coupons, banners, price comparisons. Each of these advertisements may expose your computer to security issues if you click on it. It is a common practice among third-party advertisers to use adware so they can promote their products and services, but their primary goal is to boost the traffic of their web pages and generate PPC (pay-per-click) revenue.

Adware programs are also associated with unapproved modifications of the browser settings, for example redirecting the search engine and homepage tabs to predetermined websites without your consent.

Coolncheap may also track certain browsing-related information, like IP address, pages visited, search queries, browser and operating system type. Sharing the collected data with unknown third parties for marketing purposes is highly possible.


How Does Coolncheap End Up on Your Computer?

Coolncheap can be downloaded from its official product page online. Applications and browser extensions like Coolncheap can also be distributed to the user’s computer bundled with software downloaded from popular freeware download websites. Despite the fact, that the promoted apps are supposedly safe and legitimate, PC users are advised to be more attentive to the installation process and not to let random applications end up on their PCs. Selecting the Custom installation options provides you with the opportunity to un-check the ones you do not need or want. Choosing trustworthy download sources and making sure that your AV products are up-to-date is imperative for the safety of your system.
