Do you know what Cheapncheap is?
Cheapncheap is an adware application, so it means that it collects data on your web browsing habits. Cheapncheap needs this information in order to display commercial advertisements that are tailored to your likes at preferences. At first glance, it may seem as those Cheapncheap ads are there to help you find your favorite goods at a lower price. However, that is not the case because the program is more concerned about making money than providing you with useful information. You have to remove Cheapncheap from your system if you want to avoid serious security problems.
You most probably installed Cheapncheap accidentally when you downloaded some program from a third-party website. The application does not seem to have a working homepage, but we can tell it is very similar to TopDeal, DealPlug, PlusTotal, and a number of other semi-random name adware applications based on JustPlugIt engine. Just like its predecessors, Cheapncheap clearly makes use of Vittalia, Amonetize and Installrex installers to travel around the Internet. Your job right here is to avoid clicking download buttons on file sharing and torrents websites. If it’s a fake download button, it is very likely that you will initiate a freeware download, and Cheapncheap will be one of those programs.Cheapncheap screenshot

Some people may also think that Cheapncheap is a useful application because it displays commercial ads only on popular shopping websites like Amazon, eBay, BestBuy, and others. So it makes an impression that Cheapncheap is really there to help you find out more about the latest sales and discount offers. Nevertheless, like all the other previously released adware applications, Cheapncheap is not responsible for the ad content security. We have to consider that the application is highly vulnerable to a third-party exploitation, and if cyber criminals decide to make use of it for their evil deeds, it’s how it’s going to be.
Hence, whenever you find an adware application installed on your PC, open Control Panel and check whether you can uninstall it manually. If so, delete the application at once and then look for other potential threats. In the case of Cheapncheap, you can easily terminate the app via Control panel. The extension on Internet Explorer will disappear automatically, but you will have to delete it from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome yourself.
