247vidz – ad-supported video streaming service that poses a risk of data leakage

The example of 247vidz virus

247vidz is a video streaming website and application that offers a free video streaming service online. The legacy of this service,[1] as well as the application itself, is doubtful. Due to multiplicity of misleading activities that it initiates behind its users backs, it has been classified as adware and potentially unwanted program (PUP). 

People can download it directly from the official website –, but typically it sneaks silently as an additional component of other free software. The owners of this program try to attract more users by offering a free trial, which once installed starts generating intrusive advertisements and foisting unlimited access just for a small 50 USD monthly fee.

However, in either case, we do not recommend using this application since it is categorized as adware. It means that you might get annoyed more by the annoying outcomes of the adware rather than enjoy its any benefits. After the installation so-called 247vidz virus might:

  • deliver various types of online ads when browsing the web,
  • turn random text into hyperlinks,
  • redirect to promotional websites,
  • install additional browser plugins.[2]

After using the adware for a couple of days, you might get already frustrated by the amount of 247vidz ads and commercial offers piling up on the browser. The problem with these ads is that they might be dangerous or redirect to high-risk or misleading websites. Thus, each browsing session becomes a potential threat to your device and privacy.

Furthermore, according to the provisions of the privacy policy, you realize that the adware performs poorly in terms of securing your personal information. Not only does it collect your personal details, such as full name, shipping, email, IP addresses, but it also gets access to your credit card. Therefore, you can only imagine what opportunities appear for the 247vidz scam owners to misuse it.

The most problematic part is that the PUP enables the services of third-parties which might follow different personal information handling policies. In short, your personal, as well as banking data, is exposed to the risk of being violated and leaked to even cyber criminals.[3] Thus, you should remove 247vidz immediately.

At the end of the article, you will find illustrated instructions that will help to uninstall adware manually. However, we recommend scanning the system with security software, such as Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego and remove virus-related components automatically. This 247vidz removal assures that all potentially dangerous and spying activities are stopped.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
