Tigers Deal

What is Tigers Deal?

Tigers Deal is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) targeted at users who often like to shop online. The application’s descriptions suggest it can make “your home page much Faster and slicker with our all in one tab for all your shopping needs.” Accordingly, the extension might sound rather handy. However, we would advise you not to trust its provided descriptions as they might be exaggerated. Moreover, our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com say the PUP could be potentially dangerous as it may introduce users to suspicious advertisements from the third party. It seems to us the risks that might come with the extension’s usage are not worth the doubtful benefits you get, but we will talk about this later in the text. Therefore, we invite you to read our report and get to know Tigers Deal better, although if you wish to erase it right away, you could slide below the article at one and use the provided removal instructions.testtesttest

Where does Tigers Deal come from?

Currently, there are three possible Tigers Deal’s distribution channels. One of them is the application’s official web page available on tigersdeal.com. The other site distributing the PUP is Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tigers-deal-g/oklglcfgndllclhcimoeeejpggpnfjmk), although it seems only a few users downloaded it from here as the site claims there are just 5 users at the moment of writing. Since we doubt anyone could come across the official web page without knowing its title and the Chrome Web Store reports only five users, our researchers believe it is quite likely that the PUP might also be spread through bundled software installers. In such case, you could add it on the browser without even realizing it if you pick automatic installation over advanced settings. Thus, to stay away from similar unreliable applications we would advise users to be more attentive during installation. It is best to deselect additionally suggested tools you do not need or cancel the process if it appears to be the program that is being installed could add software to the system without asking any permission.

How does Tigers Deal work?

The PUP settles in like any other browser extension compatible with Google Chrome; it creates directories in the %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions and %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default locations. Its next step should be the replacement of your default homepage and new tab page preferences. As a result, the browser may start loading a particular search engine instead of previous start page or new tab page.

Tigers Deal’s provided tool may look quite reliable as it could say “welcome to safe shopping,” but keep it in mind our researchers did not find any evidence the search engine might somehow make your online shopping safer. On the contrary, we noticed the application could be using a modified version of Google, which means there might be unreliable third-party advertising content among the search results, e.g., ads promoting other threats alike (different PUPs, adware, browser hijackers), showing fake lottery winnings, asking to participate in false surveys, and so on.

We do not think the application’s provided advertising could enhance your online shopping experience, especially when it may come from unknown sources. Same goes for the icons leading to popular online shopping web pages; they should appear just below the search box. You can add the same icons to your browser’s bookmarks, and the result would be just the same, so if you were hoping Tigers Deal would have any enhanced tools to help you shop, you might get rather disappointed.
