What is MySafeSavings?
At this moment, the official download page of MySafeSavings is down; however, that does not mean that this is the end of this advertising-supported program. It is impossible to say how many third-party installers could be carrying this adware right now, and it is possible that this program is active on your PC even if you have not granted it the permission to enter your PC. Is this adware active on your own operating system? If it is, there are a few things you need to know, and our Anti-Spyware-101.com research team has created this report to provide you with this information. We can tell you right away that you need to remove MySafeSavings, and if you are not sure why this is necessary, you need to continue reading. If you care only about the removal of this adware, you can move straight to the guide attached below.
How does MySafeSavings work?
Our research has revealed that MySafeSavings is a clone of GorillaPrice and Finding Discount advertising-supported programs, both of which are identified as security threats. If you find these programs installed on your PC, delete them as soon as you can because they are just as unreliable as the ad-supported program we are discussing in this report. As mentioned already, the official download website representing this adware is down. The only feature of this site that is somewhat “alive” is the uninstaller (MssUninstaller.exe) that is located at uninstall.mysafesavings.com; however, it does not work either. It is notable that this is the installer that you will be routed to if you try uninstalling the program via Control Panel, which means that this removal option is no longer viable. If the distribution of this adware is left in the “hands” of third-party distributors, you are likely to face several different infections along with it. The good news is that this threat appears to be limited to the US region. Of course, this is not really good news if this is the region you are located in.
Once installed, MySafeSavings is capable of connecting to different remote servers to transfer information regarding the installation, elimination, and modifications made to software. The servers used by this adware include softwarecrashreport.com and softwarehelpdata.com. These servers could also be used to download updates and upgrade the program, which could make this program even more suspicious and dangerous. Overall, the main task for this adware is to show advertisements, and our researchers note that this program is most likely to show pop-up advertisements in random intervals. It is highly unlikely that the creator of this adware is also the creator of the ads shown. It is more likely that it provides advertising services that other parties can use, and, unfortunately, it is most likely that suspicious and even unreliable parties will be the ones using these services. Although MySafeSavings as a piece of software might be harmless, it is highly likely that it will open a security backdoor with the ads it shows. Hopefully, you will not be exposed to ads hiding malware installers or scams, but the only way to prevent that is by eliminating adware.
How to delete MySafeSavings
You are wasting your time with MySafeSavings. Even if this program promises the best deals in the world, it is not worth your attention. This adware was created to showcase ads and collect information about you, and it is most likely that its developers will get more benefits than you. In fact, there is not a single reason to keep this program installed on your computer. We strongly advise using automated malware removal software to eliminate this adware primarily because this software can ensure the elimination of all existing threats and because it can ensure that it is done quickly and successfully. Not all users are equally experienced, and some might have trouble removing MySafeSavings manually. Considering that you cannot simply uninstall this program, you will have to eliminate it using the Registry Editor.
