CouponsMachine, as the name suggests, is supposed to help users save money while they shop online. 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.
A lot of potentially unwanted programs tend to enter the user’s system using a stealth distribution technique called bundling. Additional installations are often distributed alongside free software the user downloads online. Users are advised to opt for the Advanced options as they install new programs on their computers. This way they can un-check any suspicious apps, add-ons, and plug-ins.
Once installed, CouponsMachine may cause the following issues on the affected machine:
- Display a variety of third-party ads (pop-ups, banners, deals, coupons, etc.)
- Cause unwanted redirects to questionable sites.
- Collect personally non-identifiable data (IP address, browsing habits, search entries).
- Lead to poor browser performance.
Keep in mind that no adware program assumes responsibility for the content of the product pages you land on, once you’ve clicked on the advertisements. You may end up visiting corrupted websites and facing various security risks.
