If you are a frequent online shopper, you would be happy about the promises iDeals make and pay less for products; however, as a matter of fact, this application is less than ideal. In reality, this is an ad-supported free app that displays potentially unreliable third-party advertisements. Do you know what might happen if you click on an ad with a corrupted link? You might be taken to a website that is run by cyber criminals. Are you aware of the potential risks of that? If your computer is infected with this adware, it is only a question of time when it will be attacked by more malware programs or when you get scammed. We do not believe that you want to risk that kind of exposure. That is why we suggest that you remove iDeals as soon as you can.
There are basically two ways for iDeals to enter your computer. One is the “official” way when you visit its website at getideals.com, and download it from there. The other is via free software bundling. We have noticed that there may be differences in the behavior of the app depending on which source you get it from. The one from the official website only installs in Google Chrome, while the bundled one installs in all of the three most popular browsers. The more worrisome difference is, however, that the bundled version may contain malware programs apart from this adware. That is why you always need to be careful when you install such software packages; especially, if they are from a questionable source.
Hopefully, by now you have made up your mind and decided to remove iDeals. So, here we are with the solution. Since the uninstaller of this adware does not take care of the browser add-ons, after uninstalling the app via Control Panel, you need to deal with the add-ons manually. Do not worry; it is not a brain surgery. If you use our guide below, you should not have a problem. Keep in mind that you can prevent most of the infections from entering your computer. We advise you to always research the software you want to download first, since you can see if it is worth it at all. Try to stay away from unfamiliar or questionable websites and download only from reputable ones. With these simple steps you can protect your system from uninvited intruders.
