Think twice before you install such an application as Deal Fairy. Although this application claims it can help you save on your online purchases, it is an adware program that may cause a number of security threats to your computer system. Therefore, apart from being slightly annoying Deal Fairy presents more problems for you as a possible malware distributor, and you need to remove Deal Fairy from your computer to avoid these security risks. Refrain from clicking on the links displayed by this adware application and make sure that you get rid of it right now.
Some users may think that Deal Fairy enters their systems surreptitiously, but that is not the case. This application informs you about the oncoming installation, but quite often users simply skip important installation steps and do not notice that they install some additional applications. That is especially applicable to the freeware installations. Deal Fairy is usually bundled with free software applications such as shareware games or video players, or even such browser extensions as Yontoo or Superfish. If you do not pay attention during the installation, you will have Deal Fairy installed on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer (depending on which browser is your default one).
The basic security risk related to Deal Fairy is its pop-up ads. The ads that should contain coupon deals and discount offers also contain outgoing links to websites that are supposed to offer “similar” purchases. But it is rather common for a malicious third party to hijack and exploit these pop-ups in order to display links to malicious websites. Were you to click on any of these links, you would get redirected to a dangerous website that hosts malware, and you would get infected.
Thus, you need to remove Deal Fairy and all the other related applications from your computer as soon as possible. Luckily, it is not hard to remove this application manually, so follow the instructions provided below and terminate Deal Fairy right now.
