This post will guide you to get rid of Offers4U pop ups and deal finder. Read on.

 

 

What Is Offers4U?

 

 

Offers4U is a free browser extension or plugin that can work with Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. On its official website, it is promoted as a shopping assistance that displays for you exclusive discounts and deals on the products you are searching for. And, with Offers4U installed, you will be able to compare prices at a variety of stores and take advantage of the best offer that comes your way. Sounds really nice! But, it does far more than what it promises to do.

 

In reality, Offers4U is a potentially unwanted program categorized as adware. Once installed, it will display coupon code box, banner ads and turn text into hyperlinks that lead to partner websites to get pay-per-click revenue. Worse still, Offers4U extension and plugin can gain access to your data on all websites, your tabs and browsing activity. In this way, it can feed you more precise advertisements.

Powered by Offers4U pop-up ads

 

Although can be downloaded and installed willingly from its official websites, Offers4U is commonly added when you install other free downloads, such as video recording/streaming, download-manager. Then “powered by Offers4U” ads and deals begin to bombard your web browser while you are still in the dark. In most cases, you cannot find Offers4U in the Programs and Features list, that’s because those “powered by Offers4U” pop-up ads are caused by other adware such as LyricsPal, SuperLyricsLyricsPartyLyricsSingLyricsBuddy and LyricsSay.
