What is Safe Saver?
Safe Saver is a browser plugin developed to help you save money whenever you shop online. It is compatible with all main browsers including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It is not a computer infection, and most of the time users install the application on their computers willingly. However, if you do not remember having installed Safe Saver on your PC, and it is still there, then you have probably downloaded it bundled with other freeware. In such a case, scroll down to the Safe Saver manual removal instructions right below this description.
Where does Safe Saver come from?
However, Safe Saver might also come bundled with freeware and shareware, especially if you download various free of charge applications from third party file hosting pages. That is not to say that such hosting websites intend to infect you with malware, but they are not responsible for the third party content uploaded on their servers, and you download and install various applications at your own risk.
Hence, whenever you install a new application downloaded NOT from an official website, make sure that you reach each and every single installation step carefully, because it might as well come bundled with Safe Saver or any other similar add-on.
What does Safe Saver do?
According to the information on the official website, “Safe Saver automatically detects available coupons while you browser your favourite stores online”. It also says that it is “easy to install and works silently in the background, only displaying once a coupon or multiple coupons have been found”. It actually sounds like a decent application, especially as it looks for deals that are relevant to you, but that also means Safe Saver collects information on your web browsing history to provide you with these relevant ads.
What is more, all the coupons and discount offers provided by Safe Saver come from third party advertising networks. It means that Safe Saver does not review the ad content and some coupons may even contain links to potentially corrupted and even dangerous websites.
How to remove Safe Saver?
As it has been mentioned previously, Safe Saver is not a malicious infection, and naturally it does not intend to infect you with malware. However, such a possibility remains as the application is not extremely safe and sooner or later it might get exploited by malevolent third party. Prevent that from happening but removing Safe Saver right now.
