DealMan, also dubbed Ads by DealMan and DealMan Ads, is a typical adware application that may provoke the display of unwanted advertisements, offers, discounts, and price comparisons. Researchers suspect that DealMan is most likely compatible with popular browsers like Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome, and may alter their default settings. Even though the application is not considered dangerous, clicking the ads it displays may affect the PC’s performance.
Browser crashes are possible to happen, as well as harvesting of personally identifiable information.
