CouponDropDown is an adware which causes pop-ups or coupons appearing on your screen. The unnecessary application has to infiltrate your internet browser in order to start its work.

The creators publicly present the application as a program for advertising which will show commercial pop-ups as the user browses the internet. Unfortunately, cost-per-click is one of the main source of income for the firm behind CouponDropDown so the links in pop-ups provided by the adware might lead the user to third-parties websites or even malware.

The adware is compatible with most popular web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and IE. It has similarities with application called Text Enhance as it is also using in-text advertising, this means that the text in websites is being scanned and specific keywords from them are used for providing user specific advertisements. The usual source of the CouponDropDown is freeware installations. When the users select ‘Recommended installation’ in the installation menu they might be presented with various software, in addition to the desired one, thus providing an easy way into the computer for such unwanted programs as CouponDropDown. FB Photo Zoom is the most popular source of the adware, although there are other programs such as Yontoo Layers, Mixi.Dj which are associated with the add-on as well. Unfortunately, CouponDropDown might be defended by other add-ons, which makes uninstalling it a hard task.
