You can probably tell that QueenCoupon is not the first application in its group. It is a new version of RocketCoupon, Deal4me, ShopNDrop and a number of other annoying applications. QueenCoupon is based on JustPlugIt engine, and it usually travels bundled with freeware via InstallRex, Vittalia and Amonetize installers. Despite the fact that this application has an official website at queencoupon.info, there is no direct download link available. The website simply states that with QueenCoupon extension, “locating online stores that offer cheap items is easy.”
Our research team says that rather than depending on one direct download link, users often download QueenCoupon when they click on fake download buttons on file sharing and torrent websites. It is important to click only reliable links or the ones you are familiar with. Do not be so hasty and do not click anything that flashes or offers you a “quick download.” QueenCoupon might be hiding there!
This application also randomizes its name when it gets installed on a computer. Potential entry names include QueeenCoupoon, QueenCoUpoN and so on. However, the point is that this application also installs extension on your default browser. This extension collects information on your web browsing history, and this data allows QueenCoupon to bombard you with annoying commercial advertisements.
Needless to say, you should never click any of QueenCoupon ads. You can never know what website you could land on if you click it. This adware application simply does not check the third party content that is embedded in the ads. You could be exposed to a suspicious online marketing scheme or even worse – get infected with malware.
To prevent that, simply remove QueenCoupon from your computer via Control panel and then delete the extension from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. To be sure that you have terminated all the unwanted files and applications, scan your PC with a powerful computer security application.
