Sometimes programs that appear to be useful may even cause you computer security-related problems. CouponServer is a browser extension that is supposed to be available for download at coupon-server.com. It is the official website for this application where you are told that CouponServer is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. However, it is not possible to download the application from there at the moment, and it immediately causes users to raise their suspicion levels, as that is not something one would expect from a legitimate program.
You are strongly recommended to remove CouponServer from your computer along with other potentially unwanted programs you might have installed accidentally. Since this coupon application is not available for download at the official website, it is very likely that you have downloaded and installed it on your computer along with some other freeware applications.
Be attentive when you install programs you encounter on the web, because you are usually provided with the information on additional programs that are about to be installed along with the main one. Unfortunately, a lot of users simply fail to read the installation steps and so they install a lot of more application on their computers than they actually need (or want).
CouponServer itself is very similar to Coupon Matcher, Savings Shield and other similar applications that officially have been designed to improve your online shopping experience. According to the official website, CouponServer should help you to “save on 1000s of merchants, so you can actually use your coupons on the sites you really shop on”. CouponServer include such online shopping malls as kmart, Office Depot, Petsmart, Zales and many others.
Each time you access a particular online shopping mall, you will be provided with pop-up advertisements that inform you about possible coupon deals and discount offers. Keep in mind that the information on those deals is provided by a third party and not CouponServer itself, so you cannot trust it 100%. In fact, that the main security loop related to this browser extension – since CouponServer is not responsible for the third party content on its own pop-ups, almost anyone can embed their own content as long as they know how to.
Hence, there might be even corrupted links embedded in those pop-up ads, and if you click any of them, you could get infected with malware. That is definitely something you need to avoid, so the best solution to this risk is to uninstall CouponServer through and through.
