What is Coupontabsearch.com?
Do not install the MyCouponsTab extension on your computer if you do not want to see another search engine, i.e. Coupontabsearch.com set in the place of your default search engine. Actually, you will see it if you open the New Tab as well because it rewrites the settings of the New Tab page too. As our researchers have noticed, only a small number of users who install the MyCouponsTab extension willingly know that these changes will be applied, so they find it really surprising that this piece of software only sets a new search tool with buttons on its start page leading to websites containing coupons instead of actually finding and displaying “daily deals, local deals, discounts and coupons” within seconds. In other words, the MyCouponsTab extension looks more beneficial than it actually is. If you do not wish to keep a useless piece of software on your PC or simply cannot stand Coupontabsearch.com, you should delete the extension from your Google Chrome (yes, it affects only this browser) right now. Once you have erased this add-on from your browser, you could easily set a more reliable search engine instead of Coupontabsearch.com.
What does Coupontabsearch.com do?
We cannot say that Coupontabsearch.com is a very harmful search engine that needs to be removed right now; however, you should still be very careful with it because this search tool shows advertisements despite the fact that you will see Yahoo!, which is a reputable search engine, search results after entering the search query. These advertisements are placed there to promote third-party websites and drive traffic to them. Of course, these third-party web pages are not promoted free of charge – we believe that the developer gets money from third parties for doing that. As the owner of this software focuses on earning more and more money, it is unlikely that it pays much attention to the safety of these websites promoted, which means that you might end up on one of the badly corrupted websites one day. It will be enough to click on a sponsored search result once to experience a redirection. We would not tell you to get rid of Coupontabsearch.com if it was possible to say which of the search results promote unreliable web pages and which do not and thus avoid them, but, unfortunately, it is impossible to do that. Therefore, experts say that it would be best to replace this questionable tool with a reputable search provider.

It is said that these details are needed for “analytical, business and operational purposes”. Unfortunately, the collected information will be shared with certain third parties, including search engines, advertising networks and platforms, and content providers too. These details might seem to be unimportant at first glance; however, they might tell some facts about you, so it would be better to make sure that they cannot appear in the hands of bad people. You will surely reduce the risk of revealing important information to unreliable companies/cyber criminals if you get rid of Coupontabsearch.com.
Where does Coupontabsearch.com come from?
Coupontabsearch.com is an inevitable component of the MyCouponsTab extension, so there is no doubt that you see it set on your Google Chrome browser because this extension is installed on the computer. It can be downloaded by clicking on the Download button on its official website or the Chrome Web Store; however, there are still hundreds of users who have no idea how this software has managed to enter their computers. If you are one of them, you need to know that you have probably not noticed that it is going to be installed because it entered your system in a software bundle. Also, you might have clicked on a pop-up that promoted it expecting to get a much more useful application. Either way, you should be more careful in the future if you do not want this to happen again to you.
