Dealfox is a program published by Smart Apps; however, this company is known to have several names, including Appealing Apps and Enchanted Apps. It claims to be able to help you save time and money by providing you various coupons and shopping suggestions on such online shopping websites as bestbuy.com, amazon.com, and similar. However, it is not likely that Dealfox is going to act as promised because it is just an advertising-supported program whose primarily aim is to generate money by driving traffic to different kinds of websites. Dealfox is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox; thus, you will definitely notice the presence of this program and be able to remove it if it infiltrates your system.
If you have already noticed Dealfox on your system, you should definitely make sure that you have the unreliable program installed because there are several programs that share the same name but cannot be associated with adware or other suspicious software. If it happens that your system is really infected by adware, you should get rid of Dealfox as soon as possible because neither of these ads, which will be randomly distributed on your screen, are monitored by anyone, which just simply mean that you might infect your system by clicking on any of them. It is not an easy task to delete infections, which is why it is better to keep the system protected all the time.
Keeping Dealfox on the system means that you will have to deal with different suspicious activities that this program might perform. For example, it might record your web browsing activities, connect to the internet without your permission, and thus send the collected data to third parties (e.g. advertisers, coupon providers, and corporate affiliates). According to the publishers of Dealfox, this data is collected for two main reasons: to improve the service and provide you with ads based on your interests as much as possible.
It does not seem that Dealfox is going to do anything really beneficial for you because its goals are completely different; thus, we can assume that there is no point in keeping this adware program on your system. There are two ways to get rid of this software: manually or automatically. For the manual removal, please find the instructions provided below the article. However, if you do not trust your skills, you should scan your system with a reliable antimalware tool, for example, SpyHunter and all the threats will be gone.
