Coupon Titan is an ad-supported program promising to help you save money on items you buy online, but it does exhibit some malicious traits, which is why malware experts recommend its removal.
Coupon Titan Description
Coupon Titan is classified as adware. It enters your computer without your consent and starts displaying multiple pop-up ads on websites you visit, such as Amazon. Although the program claims to help you save money while making purchases online, it may act invasive at times.
The pop-ups usually offer discounts on items you have previously searched for or looked at. This is possible as Coupon Titan is capable of monitoring your browsing activities and sending that information to third party advertising agencies that keep track of your browsing habits.
The pop-ups may be annoying as they will keep showing up regardless of how hard you try to close them. The worst of all, however, is that clicking a pop-up will redirect you to a website that may be corrupted and your system will be exposed to potential threats this way. Coupon Titan is not responsible for the content of these third party websites and you will not be able to hold them responsible if your PC gets infected.
Coupon Titan Distribution
The ad-supported programs such as Coupon Titan usually enter your PC via other free programs you download from the Web. The method is called “bundling” and is a completely legal way of distributing various software, even malware, to your computer. Luckily, however, you have the option to opt out of it during the installation of the freeware.
