Remove Bestlandcn.com (Removal Instructions) - Free Guide

removal by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Adware

Bestlandcn.com is a website that shows fake notification about somebody allegedly spying on your iPhone

Bestlandcn.com

Bestlandcn.com is a pop-up scam message that users might encounter while browsing the internet on their iPhones or iPads, although the site can also be opened through any other operating system. The fake alert states that “Someone may be watching what you browse,” and that you need to download and install Hi VPN in order to change your IP address and encrypt your web traffic. Additionally, Bestlandcn.com scam also shows a fake IP address, implying that it is visible to everybody.

However, Bestlandcn.com is a regular scam that uses deceptive methods to scare users and make them download third-party software. While the application is not necessarily malicious (the link brings you to Apple App Store), its promotion methods are extremely dubious, hence we do not recommend using it. Besides, crooks might change the link and redirect users to malware-laden sites instead. Therefore, never download anything that is placed on the Bestlandcn.com website.

Name  Bestlandcn.com
Type Scam, Mac virus
Category Potentially unwanted program, adware
Infiltration PUPs are usually installed along free software that is downloaded from third-party sites. Nevertheless, users may install adware intentionally without knowing that it uses intrusive advertising during its operation
Main symptoms  Redirects to scam websites, sponsored links, pop-up ads on all visited sites, altered bookmarks, additionally installed applications, etc.
Targeted operating systems Bestlandcn.com scam mainly aims at iPhone and iPad users, although Mac, MacBook, Windows, and other users may view the scam as well
Prevalence Users from Japan are main targets of the scam, although it does not mean that the fake alert cannot be encountered by people from another countries
Involved risks  Installation of potentially unwanted programs or malware, personal details disclosure to unknown parties (or even cybercriminals) 
Removal If you encountered Bestlandcn.com accidentally on your iPhone or iPad, do not download anything from the site. Instead, close down the tab 

Even though you might encounter the Bestlandcn.com pop-up accidentally while browsing the internet on Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or another browser, the site might also be opened by potentially unwanted programs[1] installed on your iPhone. These adware apps usually get installed along with other software from third-party sites that are not approved by Apple. Therefore, you should be careful when dealing with non-official websites that host freeware and always opt for official download sources if possible.

Thus, if your iPhone, iPad, MacBook, or another device is affected by adware, Bestlandcn.com removal will require you to find the unwanted app and terminate it from your device. If you want a quick solution, scan your phone or computer with security software like Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego – it should find all the PUAs and malware and eliminate them along with all the components.

Once you land on Bestlandcn.com site, you will see the following message:

Someone May Be Watching What You Browse
Your IP 104.236.233.182 could be exposed.
Someone may know your Apple iPhone

Follow three steps to encrypt your web traffic and change your IP address:
1. Click below to download VPN.
2. Open app, click connect button.
3. Browse web and apps anonymously.

However, this is not the only version of Bestlandcn.com scam that users can encounter. In other cases, victims may see the notorious “Your system is infected with 3 viruses” alert, or similar. These messages often claim that the iPhone is infected with various viruses and, if no action is taken, banking information or other sensitive data will be stolen. Additionally, it can also be stated that the computer is damaged, or similar ridiculous claims.

Bestlandcn.com scamBestlandcn.com is malicious site that mostly targets iPhone and iPad users from Japan, although people from other countries can encounter the scam in their native languages

As a general rule, Bestlandcn.com will often include a timer – it is a well-known social engineering tactic to create a sense of urgency. The timer simply prompts users to act quicker, and, while doing so, users often forget to calm down and check if the message was legitimate in the first place. Of course, people who encountered online scams before should not have trouble recognizing that Bestlandcn.com is a hoax.

It is not yet known who the developers of the site are, but it seems like the Bestlandcn.com virus mainly targets Japan[2] and a few other Asian countries. Nevertheless, the fake message checks for the IP address of the visitor and shows the message in the native language accordingly. Therefore, you might encounter the scam in any language due to targeted advertising techniques.[3]

You should remove Bestlandcn.com scam from your browser without clicking on anything and simply closing down the tab. After, check your device for any traces of adware and then reset all the installed browsers if you find anything suspicious that was installed without your permission.

Prefer App Store or other official sources when downloading and installing new apps on your macOS, iPhone or iPad

Official app stores have millions of applications available:[4]

  • Google Play 2.46 million;
  • Apple App Store 1.96 million;
  • Windows Store 0.7 million;
  • Amazon Appstore 0.48 million.

With so much to choose from, there is hardly a reason to go to third-party sites to download apps. Nevertheless, because many users are used to opting for third-party sites since years prior from when the official stores opened, old habits die hard. In other cases, users simply lack the knowledge and are not aware of the dangers that lurk outside the official sources.

Bestlandcn.com virusAnother version of Bestlandcn.com scam presents users with the "Your system is infected with 3 viruses" fake alert

Of course, asking to never download apps from third-party sites is unreasonable, although you should be aware of several things. First of all, all freeware hosting sites are bundling software – this is when several apps are included in a single installation package. While users should be able to decline those apps (otherwise it would be illegal), most of software bundling techniques allow developers to slip in unwanted programs by using deception.

Thus, you should never rush the installation process and always carefully read all the presented information, check if the vital documents (Privacy Policy, for example) are present, remove all the ticks from pre-ticked boxes, decline all the deals or offers and always opt for Advanced or Custom installation settings.

Do not associate with Bestlandcn.com site and check your device fro adware

As we previously mentioned, Bestlandcn.com pop-up appearance on your Safari or another browser does not mean that you are infected with anything – you might have simply stumbled upon the site by accident. As long as you do not press any buttons or download anything, you should be just fine. Nevertheless, if you are experiencing frequent browser redirects, Bestlandcn.com removal will require some additional actions from you.

First of all, you should go to the installed app list and check if you recognize every installed application. If not, then hurry up and uninstall it. Even so, if your browser continues the redirects and shows you plenty of ads, you should employ anti-virus software and run a full system scan. To fully remove Bestlandcn.com infection, you should also reset each of the installed browsers, as explained below.

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

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

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
