The application, however, is categorized as PUP and adware due to the risks involved with the placement of third-party ads in the user’s web browser. Although CouponsMachine is not a virus, often it is distributed in a stealth manner and is known to collect certain data on the affected computer. Users are advised to run a full system scan in order to detect and remove not only CouponsMachine but also other adware that may have infiltrated their systems.
