What is DailyOfferService?

DailyOfferService "Special Offers" are additional ads often displayed below legitimate ads or images appearing on YouTube, Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, and other popular websites. These websites (excluding Wikipedia) display internal legitimate ads, however, computer users report that they observe many additional unwanted ads (coupons, deals, etc.) as well as legitimate ones. If you notice "Special Offers" ads, your computer is infiltrated with an adware infection. While this is not a particularly high-risk security threat, it can be distracting to observe unwanted ads, and furthermore, they may lead to inadvertent installation of unwanted software or even malware infections.

DailyOfferService "Special Offers" ads are caused by installation of unwanted browser add-ons - browser extensions, which are commonly distributed via free software downloads. To avoid installation of unwanted browser plug-ins, closely inspect each installation window of free software downloaded from the Internet. Uncheck any option suggesting installation of additional browser plug-ins, toolbars, or modification to your Internet browser homepage and default search engine settings. You are strongly advised to remove this adware from your computer. Follow the removal guide presented in this article to eliminate these annoying ads from appearing on your favourite websites.

The DailyOfferService advertising platform is similar to InterYield, Nav-links, and "Ads not by this site" adware. These platforms use intrusive ads, which appear within any sites visited and are bundled with third-party browser add-ons. These rogue browser add-ons use a virtual graphic layer over any existing web page - in the case of DailyOfferService, the images appearing on visited websites trigger coupon and savings ads. Internet users wishing to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications (which cause "Special Offers" ads), should be attentive when downloading free software. To eliminate these annoying ads, you must remove the browser add-ons that cause them. To eliminate these unwanted ads, check the extension lists within your Internet browser/s and remove recently-installed potentially unwanted plugins.
