Can’t Remove FantasticDiscounts ads? This page includes detailed ads by FantasticDiscounts Removal instructions!
FantasticDiscounts is an adware application. Its selling point is that it helps you save money. How? Well, it claims to display various coupons for online sales and also show you the best deals and bargains. And, indeed it does provide you with this fantastic-sounding information (pun intended)! Unfortunately, it only sounds fantastic but is, in fact, useless. What’s more, it’s dangerous. Confused? Well, the tool shows you this news of sales and coupons via a never-ending stream of pop-u advertisements. And, to take advantage of the offers, it requires you to press the pop-ups that display them. That may sound harmless, but it’s quite the contrary. If you’re foolish enough to click on even a single ad, the application throws your way, by choice or accident, all you’ll have to show for it is more malware getting to your system. That’s because the ads are immensely unreliable! They’re filled with malicious tools just waiting to pounce on your computer, and mess it up. And, you allow them to by approving their installation with each click on each pop-up. So, unless you wish to overwhelm your PC with more unwanted malware, ignore the advertisements and don’t press a single one! Do you know what would be even better? If you delete the tool altogether. That’s right. If you get rid of FantasticDiscounts the first chance you get, you’ll spare yourself a ton of grievances and headaches. Remove the PUP at once. Your future self will most definitely thank you for it.
How did I get infected with?
FantasticDiscounts is quite masterful when it comes to finding a way into your system. More often than not, it sneaks in with the help of freeware, spam email attachments, corrupted sites, or links. It uses these methods as a shield to hide behind, and you agree to install FantasticDiscounts without even realizing it. The PUP can also pretend to be a bogus system or program update. For example, you may be convinced that you’re updating your Adobe Flash Player or Java while, in actuality, you’re installing FantasticDiscounts. What you need to realize is that this adware, as well as adware, in general, preys on your carelessness. So, don’t be careless! Don’t give into your gullibility, haste, and distraction, and maybe you won’t get stuck with such a hazardous infection. Remember, a little extra attention can end up saving you an abundance of issues.
Why are these ads dangerous?
FantasticDiscounts is a malicious and quite intrusive application, not to mention, harmful. Once it invades your system and settles in some dark corner, it begins to spy on you. It keeps track of your online activities so as to get to know you better. The program aims to understand what your preferences include, what you like, etc. When it can determine what appeals to you, it proceeds to phase two. The application begins a full-on bombardment of ‘appropriate’ pop-up advertisements. Every time you open your browser, you’ll be greeted by a myriad of pop-ups. And, each ad you see will be selected only for you, and you alone. You won’t see some random ones. Oh, no. After all, the application’s objective is to get you to click on as many ads as possible. Why? Well, its entire existence rests on clicks. FantasticDiscounts is ad-supported, which means it’s required to generate web traffic and pay-per-click revenue for the third parties that published it. So, the more you press its pop-ups, the better because no clicks equal extinction. Unfortunately, the tool doesn’t study you only so it can better select the ads it floods you with. There’s an alternative reason for it. The PUP keeps track of your browsing and catalogs every single move you make online. When it determines it has gathered enough data from you, it proceeds to send it to the unknown individuals behind it. After they have it, they can use it as they wish, and you can’t stop them. Answer this: Are you willing to hand your personal and financial information to strangers with unclear agendas? Decide whether FantasticDiscounts is worth such a colossal gamble. Make sure you make the right choice as both your and your PC’s well-being rest on your decision.
