Why should you remove BlazingFun from your system?

If you have detected a suspicious application named BlazingFun on your system, you should not rush to explore its functionalities. BlazingFun virus is admitted to be an ad-supported potentially unwanted program, designed to place bothersome ads on websites that the user visits or simply trigger new tabs or windows. Although some of BlazingFun ads seem useful, we doubt that these ads are reliable. It is recommended not to click them because they might redirect you to untrustworthy websites filled with questionable links, ads, or files. If you accidentally clicked on a corrupted link, we can assure you that it wouldn’t be funny at all then. In the worst case, you can be redirected to malicious websites or immediately install malware on the system. To avoid visiting insecure websites, we suggest staying clear of these ads. Since it doesn’t seem that this adware is a good source of news about discounts and good shopping offers, we recommend you to remove BlazingFun adware from the system without a hesitation. You can do that by using ReimageIntego or Malwarebytes software.

How is this program distributed?

Have you noticed that your browsers have been affected due to BlazingFun hijack? If so, you probably want to find out when and how did this program manage to infiltrate into your computer system. The fact is that the majority of PUPs spread together with other free programs and can be installed on the computer system with user’s permission in case the user fails to adjust installation settings. Such program packages are also recognized as software bundles, and they look like simple individual programs. Offers to install additional software typically are hidden in their installation setup’s, and if the user fails to opt additional downloads out, they get installed without displaying any notifications or warnings. That is why we recommend choosing Advanced or Custom settings when installing new computer software, and altering its components manually. Users should remove all unknown additions including browser add-ons, search tools, applications that should not initially come with the desired program.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
