Have you been exposed to CouponRockstar Ads? If you have, the first thing you want to do is check for unfamiliar and suspicious extensions installed on your web browser. According to our research, the extension responsible for these ads (CouponRockstar) is most likely to be installed onto Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers, but, of course, there is always a possibility that others could be affected too. The extension can be downloaded at couponrockstar.com/# and chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/offers-by-couponrockstar/phoaopdicackjeoflpmciakfpaafpfgh, but it is likely that most users encounter it as they interact with software bundles. Unfortunately, malware could be bundled along with the extension. Therefore, we suggest employing a malware scanner to inspect your operating system and determine whether or not you need to remove malicious threats. The scanner should warn you to delete CouponRockstar Ads, and that is because the extension is classified as an advertising-supported program (adware).
Do you know what adware is? It is advertising-supported software that is designed to deliver advertisements. CouponRockstar Ads should start showing up on the websites you visit soon after the extension is installed. Whether it is installed on its own or along with other questionable programs, you should start seeing banners and flashy advertisements on various websites you visit. The advertisements could also be delivered via highlighted words on these websites. According to our research team, you are most likely to find ads on shopping websites, such as walmart.com, bestbuy.com, target.com, and amazon.com. It was also found that these ads should be shown to you only if you live in the USA, which suggests that CouponRockstar Ads are specifically designed to appease Americans. The ads delivered by this adware should have an identification tag (e.g., “Ad Offers by CouponRockstar”), and so you should have no questions regarding the origin of the ads. Needless to say, the ads will stop showing up only if you remove the suspicious extension.
Since CouponRockstar Ads can be personalized by selecting ads based on your browsing behavior, you might believe that they are beneficial. Even if the ads present real deals – instead of fake or malicious links – you need to be very cautious about them. There is no doubt that someone is paying to have their services or products promoted by CouponRockstar Ads, and so the offers are limited. If you believe that you are being introduced to the BEST deals, you are mistaken. The chances are that you can find better prices if you simply browse the web on your own. This is true for all advertising-supported programs. Unfortunately, many of them are malicious too, which is why it is so important that you stay vigilant and careful. After all, the last thing you want is to be exposed to malicious advertisements. If you ever click an ad and are routed to a strange website or are introduced to a strange installer or product, you need to scan your system right there and then. Obviously, if malware is found, you must remove it without further delay.
It is no secret that CouponRockstar Ads are shown after monitoring your virtual activity, and that is why they might appear to be legitimate and even beneficial. Hopefully, you are not scammed, but if you understand the risk, you probably want to remove CouponRockstar Ads right now. The removal process is very simple, and you can handle it all on your own. We created a guide that shows how to eliminate the unwanted adware extension from Firefox and Chrome browsers. Of course, if it was installed on a different browser, you want to eliminate it too, and if you do not know how to do it, write to us using the comments section. The same goes with additional software and extensions that might have been installed along with adware. If you discover that it is malicious or undesirable, you want to delete it, and we are here to help you with that as well. Remember that if you cannot eliminate adware and other threats on your own, you can always rely on anti-malware software to take care of your operating system.
