Tigers Deals removal instructions
What is Tigers Deals?
Tigers Deals is a rogue application that falsely claims to save time and money by providing various coupons and notifications of special deals/discounts on various online shops. Judging on appearance alone, Tigers Deals may seem legitimate and useful, however, this app infiltrates systems without consent. In addition, it continually displays intrusive online advertisements and records user-system information. For these reasons, Tigers Deals is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware.
Following infiltration, Tigers Deals delivers pop-up, banner, coupon, and other similar advertisements. To achieve this, developers employ a "virtual layer" - a tool that enables placement of third party graphical content on any site. The displayed ads often conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the browsing experience. In addition, some redirect to malicious websites and even accidental clicks can result in high-risk adware or malware infections. Furthermore, Tigers Deals gathers IP addresses, URLs visited, search queries, and other information relating to browsing activity. This collected data might contain personal details that developers of this PUP share third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing private data. Therefore, the presence of an information-tracking app such as Tigers Deals can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. We strongly advise you to uninstall this rogue application immediately.
Tigers Deals has very similar characteristics to Prime Updater, MediaPlayAir, WebDiscover, ScreenUp, and dozens of other adware-type applications. All claim to enhance the web browsing experience in certain ways, however, these claims are merely attempts to trick users into believing that apps such as Tigers Deals are legitimate and useful. In fact, adware-type applications are useless for regular users. They are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than providing any of the functions promised, adware delivers intrusive online advertisements (via the "Pay Per Click" advertising model) and records various user-system information (which is later sold to third parties).
How did Tigers Deals install on my computer?
Tigers Deals has an official download website, however, developers also proliferate this adware by employing a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" (stealth installation of third party applications with regular software/apps). Therefore, many users install Tigers Deals inadvertently without their consent, since they often rush the download/installation processes and skip steps. Aware of this, developers hide bundled programs within the "Custom/Advanced" settings. By skipping this section, users expose their systems to risk of various infections.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
There are two simple steps you should take to prevent this situation. Firstly, closely analyze each download/installation step using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. Secondly, decline offers to download/install additional applications and cancel those already included. The key to computer safety is caution.
