Online shoppers are often tricked into believing that random coupon applications can help you purchase their favorite goods at a lower price. Sharp-savings is one of those applications that you should avoid, because they can bring more havoc than good. It is an adware program that functions as extension on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox web browsers. Sharp-savings displays a lot of pop-ups and other commercial advertisements that are supposed to redirect you to other shopping web pages, but that is not always the case. Hence, to protect yourself from potential fraud, you have to remove Sharp-savings from the PC.

For those who are wondering how Sharp-savings could have entered their computers the answer is – bundled downloads. Sharp-savings cannot be downloaded at sharp-savings.com (its official website), so the only way for this application to travel around to get bundled with other freeware programs. The same method has been employed by other adware applications from Smart Apps group, including Savings Wizard, Savings Scout, Savings Shield and so on. These applications are included in the setup file of other freeware applications that you download at third party file hosting web pages.

Users are often given the chance to avoid installing Sharp-savings onto their computers, but the sad thing is that users tend to skip important installation steps, blindly trusting the software from unreliable source. It means that along with Sharp-savings you may also have other potentially unwanted applications installed on your computer.

Needless to say, that Sharp-savings is not a malicious computer infection, but you should think twice before you keep it on your system. The main security issue related to such applications is the fact that they are extremely vulnerable to the exploitation from outside.

It is true that Sharp-savings displays coupons and discount ads, but the program does not and cannot review every single link that gets embedded into its pop-ups. It is even stated quite obviously in the application’s Privacy Policy that it is not liable for whatever might happen when you get exposed to a third party content. It means that you might risk exposure to third party online marketing schemes and even malware distribution networks when you click Sharp-savings ads.

The best way to avoid any potential danger is to remove Sharp-savings from your PC for good. Open Control Panel and uninstall Sharp-savings manually. This will be enough to remove the extensions from your browsers as well. However, there might be some files or programs left that could prove to be detrimental to your system’s security.

To determine these threats, scan the PC with SpyHunter free scanner and then acquire a licensed antimalware tool to terminate all the files automatically. Also, should you have any further questions; you can always leave a comment below.
