Dolphin Deals Adware

What is Dolphin Deals?

Created by SuperWeb LLC, Dolphin Deals is a potentially unwanted browser extension claiming to enhance users' Internet browsing experience by enabling coupons, comparison shopping, and other functions.

While this functionality may seem legitimate and useful, be aware that Dolphin Deals is categorized as adware or a potentially unwanted application, since it employs a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' (stealth installation of additional programs together with the chosen software) to install on Internet browsers without users' consent.

Following successful infiltration on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, Dolphin Deals generates various intrusive online advertisements including banner, search, interstitial, transitional, pop-up, and full-page ads. There is a high probability that clicking these advertisements will cause high-risk adware or malware infections.
