Another reason is that your personal information and Internet browsing habits are being monitored and might be used for various purposes, most commonly for displaying of targeted ads. Another issue related to Deals Plugin are redirections to unwanted websites. Together with the application search engine toolbars might be added which would cause changes of your home page, default search engine and new tab.
