What is Deal Vault?

Deal Vault is a potentially unwanted program that comes to your computer in the form of an extension to the browser and hijacks your browser Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. This program specializes in distributing and displaying advertising materials (banners, coupons, pop-ups). During browsing Deal Vault constantly displays advertisements, thus promoting the products of partner companies. At first glance, Deal Vault seems a useful program that can help the user to find the best offers on the internet. In fact, it is not. Most of the products that you offer are void. The main task of the developers is deceptive. This program is designed to get you to spend money on anything. Deal Vault also may collect your personal information (such as browsing history) and transfer it to third parties. If you find a Deal Vault on your PC, then you should remove it immediately.
