What is Slick Savings?
Slick Savings is a browser extension developed by Spigot, Inc. that floods your browsers with various advertisements. The presented coupons, deals and offers are supposed to help you save money and get the best price, however, you should not blindly trust these adverts. Slick Savings may not be a malicious program, however, it may expose you to unsafe web content.
The potentially unwanted application does not hold responsibility for the ads it displays in your browsers which means that these ads can easily be fake. The program is not worth the security risks that come with it. We suggest you delete Slick Savings from your PC.
How does Slick Savings work?
Slick Savings does not seem to have an official website, so it is most likely that the program came bundled with some other freeware. You may not have noticed allowing this extension to get installed, if you skipped through the installation wizard. However, if you were to choose Advanced or Custom installation option, you would have been able to deselect the additional offers. We suggest you do that next time you install free software. Potentially unwanted applications are not beneficial in any way which is why they are distributed using the bundling method so that they can get access to your PC unnoticed.
If Slick Savings would only show useable coupons and ads on the shopping websites, it would actually be rather useful. However, you will see more irrelevant ads appear on every page that you visit rather than the ones that may be of any use to you. The reason for that is that the adverts that you see belong to third parties which means that they can be unsafe. Clicking on a fake ad could result in malware infection, which should be avoided at all costs. If you want to improve your system safety, you should terminate Slick Savings.
How to remove Slick Savings?
There are two options you can choose from when it comes to Slick Savings removal. You can uninstall Slick Savings manually or automatically. If you choose option number one, you can use the instructions provided below. Thankfully, the program is not too difficult to uninstall. However, the advantage of the second option is that by downloading a malware removal tool, you also acquire a malware scanner and a malware prevention program. It means that you will be able to scan your PC to detect all threats that may be on it, delete Slick Savings along with them and be absolutely sure that your computer is protected from similar and much more dangerous online infections.
