Do you shop online frequently? If you do, you might be intrigued by the services offered by EasyCouponsAccess, a potentially unwanted program that our virtual security experts recommend removing. If you visit easycouponsaccess.com – which is the official download page – you are informed that this program can deliver daily deals, coupons, and discounts for free, which might sound like a great offer. Some people might find this website on their own, but most are likely to be redirected to it via ads and links shown on different websites set up for promotion purposes. Right in the center of the website’s home page, you are introduced to the “CONTINUE” button, and if you click it, you initiate installation. Google Chrome users have to download the PUP from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-coupons-access-v12/ghhnaolnpcokjflnfaaepoemgpcnkkao, and so they are redirected to this page first. Although the installer is presented via the Chrome web store, which is considered to be a legitimate source for browser apps, you must stay vigilant. Hopefully, you have not installed the PUP yet, but if you have – continue reading to find out how to delete EasyCouponsAccess.
Since EasyCouponsAccess is promoted as a tool that delivers coupons, its creators built it in a way so that it would present them. However, not in the way you imagine. Search.heasycouponsaccess.com is set as the homepage of the chosen browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox) after the extension’s installation, and the New Tab and default search provider are likely to be replaced as well. Due to this, the PUP is often identified as a browser hijacker too. EasyCouponsAccess uses Search.heasycouponsaccess.com to display easy-access links to three unique websites: couponsventure.com, retailmenot.com, and groupon.com. These are well-known sources for coupons and discounts, but you do not need to install a PUP to get access to them. You can visit them at any point, and if you need a fast-access button, bookmark the desired site and move it to the top so that you would have an easy-access button every time you launch your browser. If that is the only thing you enjoy about the suspicious extension, we suggest removing it right away. Of course, it also offers easy-access links to amazon.com, facebook.com, booking.com, and other popular sites, but you can add and delete them from your browser’s bookmarks bar at any point too.
You should be able to remove EasyCouponsAccess and Search.heasycouponsaccess.com manually using the guides you can see below. The process is not difficult, and if you follow the steps carefully, we are sure that you will succeed. Of course, we cannot guarantee that your operating system or browsers will be safe afterward. It is possible that other malicious threats exist. Maybe they were downloaded along with EasyCouponsAccess too. Scan your operating system using a legitimate malware scanner, and you will know if you need to erase them. Better yet, install a trustworthy anti-malware program that will automatically delete all active PUPs and other threats and, at the same time, will secure the system to protect it against attackers in the future.
