What is Supreme Savings?
The Supreme Savings browser add-on displays coupon ads when users visit online shopping websites such as Expedia, Kmart, OfficeDepot, Zales, etc. This browser extension is developed by 215 Apps (Excellent Apps) and is known to infiltrate users' Internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla FireFox) without their consent. Commonly, the Supreme Savings plug-in self-installs together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Whilst Supreme Savings is not technically considered a virus, it is an unwanted program and should be removed from users' systems. Note that bundling unwanted browser add-ons is a common tactic employed by freeware developers and download websites in order to monetize incoming web traffic.
Often, users do not pay close enough attention to the installation steps of freeware downloaded from the Internet, and thus, inadvertently install Supreme Savings or other adware. While in the majority of cases it is enough to uncheck options within the installation process of free software to avoid unwanted programs, some download websites employ silent installers - adware installed without any warnings or options to deselect. To avoid unwilling installations of Supreme Savings or other PUP (potentially unwanted programs), ensure that you download free software from legitimate sources only.
Supreme Savings coupon ads may seem useful to some Internet users, however, the deceptive promotion tactics used by this extension categorize it as adware.
