Cant Miss Coupons removal instructions
What is Cant Miss Coupons?
Cant Miss Coupons is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that supposedly saves time and money while shopping online - "With Cant Miss Coupons as your secret weapon for online savings, you'll wonder why anyone would pay full price. Cant Miss Coupons reveals available coupons as you shop online, so you'll always be in the know if there's a deal." Initially, these features might seem useful, however, Cant Miss Coupons app is classed as adware, since this PUP infiltrates systems without users' permission, monitors Internet browsing activity, and delivers intrusive advertisements.
This adware employs a virtual layer to display sponsored, banner, pop-up, interstitial, transitional, targeted video, and software-promoting advertisements. None originate from visited websites and conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Most redirect to e-commerce websites (including, for example, online stores, websites offering various services, etc.), however, some can redirect to malicious sites containing infectious content. Thus, clicking them is risky and may cause further adware or malware infections. Another downside of Cant Miss Coupons is information tracking. This bogus app tracks geographic location, IP addresses, operating system/browser types, and Internet browsing details (websites visited, pages viewed, search queries, etc.) This data might contain personally identifiable details, which developers later share with third parties. Thus, the presence of Cant Miss Coupons on your system can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. You are strongly advised to uninstall Cant Miss Coupons immediately.
Cant Miss Coupons is not the only application offering these features. There are hundreds of other adware-type apps also claiming to save time and money including FirstOffer, PriceFountain, and SaveDeals. Rather than providing useful features, all have identical behavior - displaying intrusive advertisements (using the 'Pay Per Click' - PPC - advertising model) and gathering personally identifiable information (which is later sold to third parties). These applications aim to generate as much revenue for the developers as possible, while users receive no real value.
How did Cant Miss Coupons install on my computer?
This bogus app is free for anyone to download on its official website, however, many users inadvertently install it with their chosen software.

By rushing the download and installation processes, they inadvertently install rogue applications such as Cant Miss Coupons, thereby exposing their systems to risk of further infection.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To prevent this situation, express caution when downloading and installing software. Select the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings, rather than 'Quick' or 'Regular'. PUPs are commonly hidden, and therefore, to decline them, you should closely analyze all steps of the download and installation processes. By paying close attention, you will be able to safely download and install your desired software.
