Do you know what Offers Chasers is?
Offers Chasers is an extension that, according to our research team, was designed for Google Chrome users. The extension is represented via the Chrome web store, but it is represented by a different name, “New Tab.” Since the official downloader at offerschasers.com does not work right now, users are likely to acquire it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/new-tab/djejecgmagpebkjpmagmddclknbkpcjm. This installer informs that the extension can record the information you browse, as well as change certain content on the websites you visit, which indicates that it can showcase ads or coupons regardless of the site you visit. Also, the extension takes over the New Tab, and it can modify your browsing history, which is strange. Due to these reasons, our research team classifies it as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP. Are you interested in removing Offers Chasers? That might be the best idea, and we can show you how to delete this PUP manually. Continue reading to learn about this process.
When Offers Chasers is installed onto Google Chrome, it is represented via the New Tab page. The URL you are shown in the address bar is http://offerschasers.com/ext/index.html. The interface of this page is not very odd or unique. In the middle, you are shown a search field, and below it, you can find easy-access links to websites promoting Shoppong Day, AliExpress, Expedia, TripAdvisor, Amazon, and Booking services. There is also a button on the top-right corner called “Coupons.” If you click it, you are introduced to additional links routing to coupons.com, savings.com, couponcabin.com, couponmom.com, valpak.com, and smartsource.com websites. At the bottom of the page, you are shown a list of random coupons with attractive discounts. You cannot remove these coupons, but you can choose to hide them or even “suspend” them for a certain period. None of this is strange, considering that Offers Chasers is promoted as a tool that can provide you with “top shopping and coupon deals.” Then why are we discussing the removal of this PUP? In fact, there are several reasons for that.Offers Chasers screenshot
