If you think that TermCoach is a useful program, then you should read this article, because we will prove to you that it is just a obnoxious adware-type application that will not only annoy you with unasked-for commercial content, but will also gather information about you, and because of that we suggest that you remove it. If you do not have a problem with this then, by all means, keep this program. But if you are a security-minded individual you will not want some shady advertisers to keep tabs on you.

This application has been developed by a mysterious software developer based in La Jolla, California. We say mysterious, because the stated developer’s name doubles as the application’s name. It must be mentioned that TermCoach has a lot of clones, such as Phrase Professor, InfoAtoms, LinkWiz, and so on. Like its counterparts, this application is likely to be disseminated using a rather deceptive distribution method known as software bundling. The program can be either bundled with malicious or legitimate software. Thus, it is distributed via shareware websites, such as Soft32.com. However, future versions are likely to be distributed via their own dedicated websites, because, to date, websites, such as Termcoachapp.com only serve to promote the application, while newer clones such as InfoAtoms are already being distributed via their websites.

TermCoach’s developers do not hide the fact that this application is ad-supported. The developers argue that advertisements are necessary to keep the application free, but since this program has so many clones, it would appear that the developers are making them not for altruistic purposes. It is all about money, so get ready to be served various advertisements such, as coupons, banners, pop-ups, and so on. The ads will appear at random, preferably on online shopping websites. Most of the ads should be labeled with “brought by TermCoach.”

Of course, the ads are supplied by unknown third-parties, which makes this application all the more suspicious. The information provided on the program’s webpage states that the developers are not liable or responsible for any damages that may occur as a direct or indirect consequence of using TermCoach. The developers will not be held responsible for the damaging content that they intentionally or unintentionally promote. It is likely that they just turn a blind eye as users get subjected to unreliable links.

Another noteworthy point to discuss is the applications privacy policy. From what we gather TermCoach can be used to collect all kinds of non-personally identifiable information that includes, but is not limited to browsing history, approximate physical location, type of operating system, IP address, default search service provider, search queries and browsing history. Furthermore, TermCoach uses third-party software, so some or even all of this information may be sent to third parties.

That is all the information we have regarding TermCoach. We hope that you now know that it is not a useful application by any measure. It might have functions that you may like, but when you boil it down it is just a plain adware program designed to make money for its developers. For this reason, we highly recommend that you remove TermCoach as soon as possible. You can either do it yourself using our removal guide or you can download an antimalware program capable of tackling adware programs.
