How does Oh My Coupons work?
Oh My Coupons is very similar to such ad-supported programs as Couponarific, Scorpion Saver, and Savings Bull. All of these programs are associated with Adpeak, and they are likely to show misleading offers, suggestions, and recommendations. If you click these advertisements, you might open up security backdoors, and this could be very dangerous. For example, you might be routed to sites hosting malware! At the very least, you might be tricked into using a deal or discount that is not as great as you think it is. Needless to say, programs like Oh My Coupons usually cooperate with certain parties, advertisers, or vendors. This means that the shopping deals shown to you could be limited to the ones produced by these parties, advertisers, or vendors. Unfortunately, it is very possible that better deals exist, but you are not provided access to them, which makes the supposedly beneficial tool quite useless.
The suspicious Oh My Coupons is likely to install tracking cookies to spy on you. Although few users think of web cookies when dealing with suspicious software, you need to disable them first. If you do, the potentially misleading ads are likely to disappear, even if just for a short while. This can also help you figure out if other ad-supported programs were installed to inject cookies, in which case ads will keep appearing even if you get rid of the cookies and terminate processes associated with a specific ad-supported program.
