MyPrintableCoupons removal instructions

What is MyPrintableCoupons?

MyPrintableCoupons is a deceptive application that supposedly saves time and money by providing discount coupons for various stores (e.g., Amazon, Walmart, Costco, etc.). This functionality may seem legitimate and useful, however, MyPrintableCoupons is categorized as a potentially unwanted application (PUA) and adware, since it often infiltrates systems without users' consent, delivers intrusive advertisements, and gathers information.

MyPrintableCoupons adware

As with most adware, MyPrintableCoupons targets the most popular browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. After successful infiltration, MyPrintableCoupons delivers coupons, banners, pop-ups, and other similar advertisements marked as "MyPrintableCoupons Promos". Note that intrusive advertisements can redirect to dubious websites and even run scripts designed to download/install other unwanted applications (or even high-risk malware). Adware-type applications are also notorious for data-tracking. The list of collected information types includes (but is not limited to) website URLs visited, web pages viewed, search queries, and other similar data. Adware developers share the information with third parties to generate revenue. These people then misuse private data to generate even more revenue. Thus, data tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. You are strongly advised to eliminate MyPrintableCoupons adware immediately.

MyPrintableCoupons is virtually identical to dozens of other adware-type applications, such as MyBestPrice, See Scenic Elf, and BWplayer. These applications offer various "useful features", however, adware has just one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. These apps deliver intrusive advertisements and gather information, thereby diminishing the browsing experience and posing a threat to your privacy and computer safety. They deliver no real value for regular users.

How did MyPrintableCoupons install on my computer?

MyPrintableCoupons is free for anyone to download on its official website, however, this app often infiltrates systems without permission. Developers proliferate this application using intrusive advertisements and a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Developers know that many users rush download/installation processes and skip steps. Therefore, they conceal "bundled" apps behind "Custom/Advanced" settings or other sections of these procedures. Furthermore, many users click advertisements and skip download/installation steps, often leading to inadvertent installation of rogue applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

This situation can be prevented by paying close attention when browsing the Internet and downloading/installing software. Carefully analyze each step of the download/installation processes using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. Decline offers to download/install additional applications and opt-out of those already included. Avoid using third party downloaders/installers, since criminals often monetize them by promoting ("bundling") rogue applications. Software should be downloaded from official sources only, preferably using direct download links. Additionally, bear in mind that intrusive ads often seem legitimate, however, they can redirect to dubious websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and similar). If you encounter these redirects, eliminate all dubious applications and browser plug-ins. The key to computer safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with MyPrintableCoupons, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate this adware.
