What is Savings Addon?
Savings Addon is classified as a browser helper object, however, some of its features suggest that it may belong to adware or potentially unwanted application class. It is compatible with all popular browsers. Savings Addon is very similar to Savings Explorer, Deal Boat, Savings Vault, Coupon Cactus, Deal Spy and many other programs that are developed by 215 Apps and Innovative Apps. The developers claim that the main purpose of Savings Addon is to provide you with great deals and coupons for your online shopping.
Although Savings Addon is not technically a virus, it is more likely to annoy you than do you any good. Therefore we suggest to remove Savings Addon from your PC.
How does Savings Addon work?
Savings Addon can get into your system in two ways. The first is by being bundled with free software that you can download online. This is most likely to happen because people rarely pay much attention to the whole installation process and thus may allow access to programs that they do not need or want on their PC. You should always be very careful with freeware as it usually comes with other applications. Select Custom Installation and choose to install only the programs you need. It is also possible to download the plug-in yourself via its official website savingsaddon.com which is highly unrecommended.
If you already have Savings Addon on your computer you must have noticed the increased amount of advertisements. However, that is not all. Like many other similar programs Savings Addon tracks cookies which means that your internet habits are recorded. This is done in order to find out which ads may interest you the most. Once you click on the ad the traffic of that webpage gets increased. And by increasing the traffic you are also increasing the profit of the developers. However, aside from allowing access to your search or browsing history, Savings Addon can also track more personal information like your username, password, etc. Therefore it is highly recommended to uninstall Savings Addon as soon as possible.
How to delete Savings Addon?
