If the FreeDeal application has infiltrated your PC, there are two things that will make an impression on you: your computer will become slower and ads labeled “By FreeDeal” will start popping up on the websites you visit. The reason for this is that FreeDeal is categorized as adware. Ads by FreeDeal may appear as coupons, deals, offers, web banners, and so on. What they have in common is that they are highly intrusive and may expose your system to a number of threats. It is in your best interests to stop the ads and you can only do that by deleting FreeDeal.

How did I get infected with?

FreeDeal is not the type of application that you will find distributed officially. It may arrive on your system together with or instead of other software. For example, when you see an ad promoting some program or updates for any of your players and you click it, you will be taken to a website from which you can acquire the particular program or updates. Then, instead of the promoted content, you may receive FreeDeal or another similar app. Also, when you download freeware from dubious file sharing websites, the applications are likely to get installed together adware and potentially unwanted programs. Thus, if you want to avoid FreeDeal, you should be careful with the content you acquire.

Why are these ads dangerous?

Ads by FreeDeal mostly rely on presenting users with exclusive deals for a variety of products to attract them. There is a great chance that many of these deals will be for products you have viewed or for ones found on websites you often visit. This is possible because as a typical adware program FreeDeal will collect your search queries, clicks, impressions, browsing history, and any other information related to your browsing habits. The more appealing an ad is, the greater the chance to click on it becomes. And more clicks means more money for the developers of FreeDeal. Unfortunately, more clicks also means increased likelihood of infecting your system with malware. Hence, it is obvious that you should stay away from FreeDeal ads, and in order not to click on one by accident, we strongly recommend that you erase FreeDeal right away.
