ConvertPDFEasy virus is the one that focuses on views, page clicks, and so on, so the revenue gets generated, and sponsors of the PUP can make a profit. That is not the best news for the user since all the advertisements, commercial pop-ups, banners, blinking windows, and similar intrusive material allow relies on ad-tracking techniques.[2]

When you continuously visit those shady pages related to ConvertPDFEasy PUP, you cannot access the normal material and reveal your data regarding the browsing online habits to third-party companies and other creators. You shouldn't trust any content that occurs on your screen out of nowhere.

The minute you receive any pop-ups or redirects to the ConvertPDFEasy page itself or material that promotes this, other installations, you need to check the machine fully for any suspicious or possibly malicious applications. The best tool for such a purpose should be anti-malware tools. AV engines can even detect the possible PUP infiltration and notify you about the infection.

Promotional content advertises useless apps

You shouldn't fall for advertisements, promotional pop-ups, banners, other material that provides, suggests to install tools, browser-based programs, and so on. Anything that comes to your screen without your permission or interferes with normal browsing online should be considered harmful, unwanted at least, possibly malicious.

Installing anything from the internet, even from the distribution pages, official-looking sites can be dangerous. Always read the EULA, privacy policy, and rely on trustworthy pages only. Never skip through installations steps, rely on Advanced or Custom installation methods, and choose these options whenever you download anything.

Also, there is no need to add search engines, PDF converters, other tools directly to your browser. Such shady tools interfere with the speed while running in the background continuously.

Get rid of the shady ConvertPDFEasy application to stop redirects

Even though this application/ browser-based tool is promoted and advertised as a useful addition to your Google Chrome or any other browsers, you should remember that people call the program a ConvertPDFEasy virus for a reason. This is an intrusive and pretty much useless tool.

The first reason that should encourage you to remove ConvertPDFEasy is the content that the application delivers to your screen directly. It manages to trigger pop-ups, banners, other windows, browser new tabs, and other material that keeps you from accessing other sites. The browser hijacker can only do that and do not interfere with your browsing sessions at all.

If the program is not intrusive at all, but you still receive all the redirects and pop-ups, you may be lucky, and if you react to these issues soon enough you may perform ConvertPDFEasy removal in time. The sooner you eliminate such PUP, the less affected your device machine may end up.

How to prevent from getting browser hijacker

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
