Rebateinformer is a potentially unwanted browser extension that is available for download at rebateinformer.com. It is not a computer infection, because it does not enter your system without your permission. You are guided through the setup process by an installation wizard, and you can definitely choose which features of this program you want to install. Consequently, if you want to remove Rebateinformer from your computer, you can easily terminate the program via Windows Control Panel. The only problem you may encounter while using this extension would be excessive pop-up advertisements and possible browser settings modification.

Nevertheless, the browser modification does not occur unless you give your own consent. Take a closer look at the Rebateinformer installation wizard. When you initiate the installation process, this is the notification you are presented with:

Welcome to FREE Rebateinformer!
Rebateinformer notifies you of rebate deals while you shop on the Web, links you to offers and adds savings to your RebateBlast account

  • Get 1,000’s of rebate and coupon offers
  • Never miss out on rebate opportunities
  • Rebat deals are just a click away
  • Save more while you shop online
  • It’s easy to remove, anytime you want

The last line definitely rings true, because even if Rebateinformer may seem like a browser hijacker to you, it is not. If you think that this extension has changed your browser settings without your permission, you need to take a closer look at the Rebateinformer Setup dialog box again. The installation wizard does offer you to enable Inbox.com Toolbar and to set Inbox.com as your default search engine and home page address. If you do not want your browser settings to be changed, you can simply un-tick the option and proceed with the installation.

Another possible issue with Rebateinformer would involve the fact that you are asked to create a personal account in order to receive coupons and discount offers real-time. The extensions promises to help you save over $1000 with rebates and discounts, and it would be a great outcome, but it is questionable whether the coupons displayed by Rebateinformer are absolutely safe. Such browser extensions are often exploited by malicious third parties to display their own corrupted content. Therefore, instead of clicking on a legitimate commercial advert, you may end up being redirected to a corrupted website that distributes malware.

Manual removal is not too challenging, so do not hesitate to remove Rebateinformer if need be. Also, if you wish to protect your system from harm, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner and then invest in a reliable antimalware program that would safeguard the system from dangerous infections.
