CompellingEntry is a piece of adware that can crop up among the legitimate applications on your Mac computer.

CompellingEntry is adware that has been identified as a member of the broader AdLoad family of adware. Adware or ad-supported software is produced to generate revenue for its authors by serving advertisements inside the browsers of as many people as possible.

This behavior is usually undesirable for several reasons. On the one hand, an abundance of ads will make your browsing experience less pleasant and generally slow your connection down. On the other hand, and more importantly, a lot of the ads served up by adware applications are sourced from rogue advertising networks.

What this means is that those ads may link to questionable content, malicious pages, misleading websites or the installers of other adware or potentially unwanted applications.

The best way to deal with adware you find on your system is to just uninstall it as quickly as possible, to minimize your exposure to potentially unsafe ads. Luckily, most adware apps similar to CompellingEntry are very easy to uninstall. All you need to do is drag them from your Applications folder to the Trash.
