Dealsy Removal Guide

Do you know what Dealsy is?

Many users do not release that adware programs are not only annoying, but might also pose a threat to your computer’s security, so we suggest that you remove them. This time we will take a look at an adware application called Dealsy. This program’s main purpose is to deliver third-party advertisements and make money for its developers and their clients. Everyone benefits, except you – the user. In this article we are going to cover certain aspects about this program that include its origins, methods of distribution, they way it works, and the dangers of having it installed.

Dealsy has been created by JustPlugIt Ltd. This software developer is dedicated to creating adware-type programs according to their client’s specifications. Therefore, it is quite popular these days. The company has released hundreds of adware programs in the past, but some more recent examples include names, such as CostItApp, TankGripHook, DigitalCleaner, and StreamX. No program is exactly the same, but they are all based on the JustPlugIt engine. One major issue with this company’s business model is that it grants its developers full power to modify the advertisement campaigns to better suite their needs. The applications use the pay-per-click system that counts the number of ads clicked for the developers to get paid. Since the developers do not endorse the promoted content, it possible that some ads might be unreliable.

We all know is that the advertisements are annoying and nobody wants to see them. Therefore, the developers or their clients must resort to deceptive means so that people install the adware programs. Some programs are disguised as useful by offering some meaningless function, and, therefore, can be distributed on a dedicated download website or as a standalone application on freeware websites. Others, such as Dealsy that do not offer any fictitious functions must be bundled with other applications. Some piracy websites are complicit and are more than happy to include adware in their software bundles for a small fee. From what we gather Dealsy is bundled with the Websearch family of browser hijackers and are featured as fake downloads on piracy websites.

The JustPlugIt is a flexible adware platform that can infect all kinds of advertisements on your browser’s window. Its ads come in various shapes and sizes that include but are not limited to video ads, in-text ads, coupons, and banners. By definition all adware applications are considered malicious, so it comes as no surprise that Dealsy is also unreliable. Since its ads are of unknown origin, it is likely that they will contain links to malicious software, such as fake antivirus applications. These kinds of applications will try to scam you. For example, an application will conduct a scan of your computer and demand that you pay up if you want it to resolve the issues.

All in all, no further explanation is required to see that Dealsy is a useless application that will only obstruct your browsing session with unasked-for unreliable third-party advertisements. Although the odds of your computer becoming infected with malicious software are quite small, we do not recommend risking it. We recommend that you remove Dealsy right now using our manual removal guide, and scan your computer with our featured anti-malware scanner called SpyHunter.
