About GetCouponsFast adware

This infection is described as useful tool that will provide users with the ability to find best deals for online shopping by providing them with various coupons, special offers and discount offers. However, this description is nothing but a big lie and you should not trust it.

All those coupons and discount offers come in an annoying form of web advertisements, such as pop-up, pop-under, in-text, banner or contextual advertisements. New tab or even window with ads on it can be opened at any time as well.

Usually ads displayed by GetCouponsFast appear on e-commerce websites, such as eBay or Amazon. You will be offered to purchase some particular goods or services at very appealing price rate. Do not fall for that trick – those offers are fake, they are just trying to win your attention and make you click on one of those ads this way. And we suggest not to do that.

If it happens so that you click on the advertisement displayed by GetCouponsFast you will be immediately redirected to other websites that might be owned by various cyber criminals, such as hackers or scammers. This way your computer can get infected with other malware or if you attempt to purchase something there you can even get scammed and lose your hard earned money.

Another unwanted feature of GetCouponsFast is data collection. Once installed on your computer it will collect personal information, such as your browsing history, search queries, most visited websites or even your IP and email addresses. They adjust those ads according to collected data and make them even more relevant and attractive to you this way, so chances that you will click on one of them rise. And that’s the main goal of GetCouponsFast because they get paid for every single click you make.

Distribution Methods of GetCouponsFast browser hijacker

GetCouponsFast is traveling the same way as most of other malware of this type – bundled with freeware. When you download free software from unreliable websites, GetCouponsFast might come bundled with it and get installed on your system without even warning you about that. That’s why you should always pay close attention to the installation process of freeware and keep your computer protected with reliable anti-malware software all the time.
