CoupMeApp is a newcomer clone from the infamous Multiplug family of ad-supported adware. If you are distracted by constant deals, discounts and coupon offers while shopping online, you might be infected with CoupMeApp. While you might think it is great to have a variety of commercials shown to you, it is important that you remove this worthless and unreliable application. With adware there is always a danger of exposing yourself to malicious content which may risk the integrity and security of your operating system.
CoupMeApp most likely entered your system in a software bundle since you cannot download it directly. This adware does not even have a website, which makes it even more suspicious, so you should not hesitate to remove it from your PC.
You may have visited torrent or other online piracy related websites where it is easy to accidentally click on a corrupt download button. As a result you may end up downloading CoupMeApp and possibly some other infections bundled together in a third-party installer. Our researchers say that CoupMeApp is mostly distributed via InstallRex but sometimes via Amonetize or Vittalia, which are all well-known installers for delivering adware and other malware. Most users do not even realize they install the unwanted applications themselves. But if you are careful, you can opt out of installing these to save you from the unnecessary headache and the need to delete all of them later on. All you have to do is choose the Custom installation.
CoupMeApp is based on the well-known JustPlugIt engine, which is a prevalent platform for adware creators. Loads of clones from this family, such as GetIt4Cheaper, CompareItApplic, and Smart Ones, flood users with useless and potentially harmful ads every time they surf the web. This could be another reason to remove CoupMeApp because just like the previously mentioned applications, it only strives for your clicks. This adware may also collect information about you and your browsing habits, websites you use, products you put in your virtual basket, and prepare customized ads for you. So if you think you can avoid clicking on attractive advertisements that can practically “read your mind”, think again. Unless you delete CoupMeApp entirely from your system, you will not stop these ads from haunting you.
If you have this adware on your computer it is possible that your browsers got hijacked by one of the browser hijackers (e.g., mystartsearch.com) that usually come in the same bundle. These applications raise the vulnerability level of your system since you might be exposed to even more unreliable or malicious content. Therefore, after you remove CoupMeApp, you must take care of all related undesirable programs as well. If you decide to delete CoupMeApp manually, you can follow our step-by-step removal guide. For the rest of the potential threats you might want to use authentic antimalware software, which will not only eliminate them all, it will also defend your system against any existing infections.
