MyCoups Removal Guide

MyCoups is a browser extension which is in no way harmful to your computer on its own. Although it may be a legitimate tool, it still is categorized as a browser hijacker. The add-on may lead to serious troubles for your system, so it is best to remove it as soon as you can.

MyCoups travels bundled with various freeware. The application is immediately installed along with your wanted program and is attached to browsers, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Once installed it will take over your browsers and change their settings. It will change your home page to its own website, as well as change your default search engine.

By managing your searches, the tool will constantly redirect you to unknown websites. MyCoups work with third party websites. The third parties pay MyCoups to display their sponsored links and advertisements. MyCoups cannot always check whether it promotes websites managed by hackers or not. This means that, if you click on any of the sponsored links, you can be sent to a website managed by hackers and get infected by one or more of their viruses. The attacks attempt to steal sensitive information that you store on your computer, such as personal details, credit card numbers, online banking accounts and passwords, etc.

MyCoups will also produce various pop-up advertisements, that can also be exploited by hackers in order to infect your system with a virus. Do not click on any of the pop-up ads.
