Flying Deals adware (FlyingDeals) can access, collect, and modify user browsing data, such as all browsing activities, bookmarks, history and themes. It primarily uses the information it collects to manufacture targeted advertisements across popular internet browsers.

Antivirus and Anti-Malware programs will detect Flying Deals as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware. The unwanted program bundles alongside freeware, torrents, and other free programs and files found on the web. This adware may be used as a deceptive tool to generate revenue for free online products and services. It will not only use collected browsing data to serve pop-up ads, but it will also use collected user browsing data for other marketing purposes.

Flying Deals adware and programs that it bundles with will create new tasks on Windows Task Scheduler and make changes to Windows Start-up settings. This will allow the adware and objects that it bundles with to run every time Windows start and ensure that the adware is enabled. These tasks and the program itself use system resources to perform these tasks. In turn, the usage of system resources can result in decreased computer functionality and internet performance.

Flying Deals is not technically defined as a computer virus but the unwanted program is still a threat or the sign of a serious computer infection. Potential Flying Deals malware has been reported to download and install alongside third-party malware, malicious files, and additional potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), including adware like CouponDropDown. This means that it will probably be necessary to uninstall multiple programs and remove multiple browser add-ons and extensions in order to stop all unwanted activities from occurring. Apart from manually eradicating the program and others that it bundles with, files may remain undetected to the average computer user. That is why the professional internet security community recommends to use a reputable anti-malware product to remove Flying Deals and malicious files that it may bundle with.

Flying Deals is usually contracted without user consent or knowledge. It is used to promote free downloadable content from a variety of locations on the web, therefor it bundles with multiple objects. Free downloadable content includes freeware, shareware, torrents, and more.

Users who wish to consciously install freeware may be given the opportunity to accept or decline an offer to install Flying Deals adware and other objects during the installation process; However, the user request to decline the adware from installing is often ignored by the program or presented in a confusing manner and the adware will install anyways.

In some cases, Flying Deals and other unwanted programs are aggressively promoted through questionable advertisements. These advertisements can be dishonest, misleading, and cause the program to automatically download and install once a user clicks on it.
