Why Do I See Ads by CouponTil?

CouponTil, like many other adware apps and potentially unwanted programs, is often included in the package of freeware/ shareware. The additional software could be deselected if the user opts for advanced installation. Going for the automatic installer permits other downloads, even though the user remains unaware.
Once installed, CouponTil may start generating undesired advertisement in the form of:

  • Pop-up/ pop-under windows
  • In-text ads
  • Banners
  • Random page texts turned into hyperlinks

Is CouponTil Dangerous?

Clicking any of the content mentioned above may redirect the user to a potentially threatening page usually loaded with viruses or Trojans. The user may have clicked on the link by mistake, or he could have been lured by a particular offer. Adware apps usually generate ad-related content such as:

  • Coupons
  • Offers
  • Deals
  • Discounts

CouponTil doesn’t make an exception. No matter how tempting ads may seem, clicking them should be avoided.
Adware apps are also developed to add tracking cookies to the browser meaning that the user’s online habits may be investigated. Browsing histories and search queries may be collected and later exploited with malvertising purposes.
