The main danger of PUPs and the article's culprit is the displayed ads. By clicking them or the “X” button you could be redirected to various untrustworthy or high-risk sites, with questionable content, such as:

  • tech support scams,
  • other push notification viruses,
  • gambling,
  • porn,
  • malware,[2] etc.

Therefore, when ads appear on the desktop of your computer or phone/tablet screen, please use the illustrated instructions below to remove them immediately, before more harm is done to you and your device in question. notificationsDeceptive notifications will start popping up on your desktop or phone screen

Remove adware causing redirects to deceptive websites

Potentially unwanted programs could cause various issues. Most of them are capable of tracking your browsing habits by recording your search inquiries, visited sites, clicked ads/links, IP addresses, geolocations, device/browser info, etc. Based on the collected information, the PUP operators can customize ads specifically for you.

That's why the displayed ads might seem irresistible, but please don't fall for these tricks. The shown ads could redirect you to entirely different domains that have nothing to do with the ads themselves. For example, an advert for a brand new TV could redirect you to a website with online gambling.

Luckily, any PUP is quite easy to get rid of. All you have to do is download a reliable anti-malware tool such as the Malwarebytes and perform a full system scan. It will automatically identify, locate and remove adware along with all suspicious components.

Please remember to scan your device at least a couple of times per week to keep it virus-free. Also, please don't forget to update its virus database with the latest infection signatures, so it's able to protect your device against the recently released malware.

How to prevent from getting adware

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.
