Coupontabsearch.com is a search engine that will replace your default search engine the moment you install the MyCouponsTab extension for the Google Chrome browser. You will see it not only when you open your browser, but it will also be opened for you when you click to open the New Tab page. People who install the MyCouponsTab extension willingly do that not to set a new search engine but to be able to find daily deals, discounts, and coupons faster. Unfortunately, they quickly understand that only the browser’s settings have been changed. We have serious doubts that MyCouponsTab will help you to save money while shopping online because it only promotes Coupontabsearch.com. Yes, you will find quick access buttons that will take you to couponbox.com, coupontabsearch.com, and other websites on the main page of Coupontabsearch.com, but it is the only thing that it will do to help you find deals on the web, so we would not expect much from it, if we were you. If you have already found it useless, or it has replaced your default search engine without permission, you can remove it at any time. Our specialists working at 411-spyware.com will explain to you how to get rid of it.

Coupontabsearch.com allows users to access third-party websites with a click of a button. Also, it returns Yahoo! search results if users enter the search query, so nobody would tell that it is an untrustworthy search tool. We cannot say that it is extremely harmful too; however, we cannot call it a very trustworthy search engine either. It is because our researchers have managed to find out that Coupontabsearch.com shows the modified search results for users. In other words, the users will be presented with advertisements promoting third-party websites. The developers of MyCouponsTab and Coupontabsearch.com do not care about the users’ safety at all, so we believe that you might be taken to untrustworthy third-party web pages too. You will not be informed about that, so you will not hurry to leave the website, which really increases the risk of allowing malware to enter the computer.

There is another reason Coupontabsearch.com cannot be called a trustworthy search engine too. Research conducted by specialists at 411-spyware.com has shown that this search tool gathers several different types of information and then might share it with third parties. First of all, it is interested in technical information, i.e. information regarding a user’s device. Secondly, it gathers the so-called usage information, for example, how users use their Internet browsers, the web pages they visit, the content they see, links and offerings they are interested in on these websites, and much more. Finally, it is clearly said in the Privacy Policy of Coupontabsearch.com that it will pay close attention to “your interactions on social networks through the Software & Services.” As we have already mentioned, there is a risk that all the gathered information will be sent to third parties, which means that it might end up in the hands of bad people. Luckily, you can make sure that this does not happen – you just need to delete the MyCouponsTab extension together with Coupontabsearch.com.

You should never trust search tools that are set without your consent. Coupontabsearch.com is one of them. Even though users can download the extension that promotes this search tool from lp.mycouponstab.com or chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/music/kelilcfdiaidmlhgjgloekjmohohobnf?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog (Chrome Web Store), there are many cases when users cannot explain when and how the MyCouponsTab extension has been added to Google Chrome. This shows that this piece of software is capable of entering computers somehow differently. It is very likely that it is spread in bundles with other applications. Also, it might be true that you have installed it with a single click on a malicious pop-up advertisement. As unreliable software might find different ways to enter computers, you should install security software on your PC. In addition, you need to be very careful on P2P web pages because they distribute malware too.

You will remove Coupontabsearch.com and the extension it comes with it by deleting the folder kelilcfdiaidmlhgjgloekjmohohobnf that is located in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions. Follow the manual removal guide you will find below to delete it manually yourself. If you feel that it is not for you, you can use an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter to erase the unwanted software from your PC.
