How to remove MyCouponsmart from Mac

Sharing is caring!

What is MyCouponsmart?

MyCouponsmart is bogus software that supposedly improves our shopping experience by providing various discount coupons. In reality, it is yet another adware that affects only macOS computers. MyCouponsmart is responsible for countless pop-up ads as well as annoying redirects to commercial websites in your browser. In addition to this, it corrupts browser’s settings to set SearchMine as the user’s primary search provider. You are advised to remove MyCouponsmart as soon as possible because it can also install other programs like Mac Cleanup Pro by itself. I think it’s not worth saying what kind of programs there may be.

How MyCouponsmart gets on your Mac?

Usually, MyCouponsmart appears on users’ Macbooks after users get redirected to rogue sites claiming that an Adobe Flash Player update needs to be installed, and end up installing it. As a result, several pieces of adware, malware and potentially unwanted software, including MyCouponsmart, get installed on their Macs. Other ways for MyCouponsmart and other browser hijackers to end up on users’ machines are users installing free software and not opting out of extra programs that are also offered for installation, or users opening files downloaded from shady websites. If that had happened and MyCouponsmart took over your browser, you may follow our tutorial to remove MyCouponsmart from your Mac.
