What is

Deloplen is a redirect virus that pushes ads and other commercial content on Google Chrome and other browsers

Deloplen redirectsDeloplen is a redirect virus that can lead users to phishing, scam or even malware-laden sites

Deloplen is an unsafe domain that users can encounter during their web browsing sessions on Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, or another browser. While some people might be redirected to it from other malicious sites, persistent and involuntarily visits most likely indicate adware[1] infection.

Ad-supported software, generally classified as “not a virus,” sometimes can possess multiple rogue techniques malware uses for its infection, persistence, and detection. Luckily, researchers manage to share new light on adware, claiming it can be just as dangerous as viruses.[2] Therefore, redirects to or similar domains should not be overlooked as just a nuisance.

Deloplen adware can modify web browser settings, redirect to suspicious scam or phishing[3] domains, display deals, offers, pop-ups, flashing windows, etc. However, users rarely understand where the intrusive content is coming from. This is because potentially unwanted programs are usually included in software bundles, and careless installation of freeware results in infiltration of optional components, i.e., adware, browser hijackers, or even malicious software.

Type Adware/PUP
Distribution Software bundling, third-party sites
Symptoms Redirects, intrusive ads, changed homepage and search engine, etc.
Risk factors Malware infection, sensitive data exposure to third-parties, installation of bogus software, etc.

Domains like Deloplen are created purely to generate advertisement revenue. Each time users click on a link, install an app or make a purchase, adware authors receive money. Therefore, it is in PUP developers' best interest to present as much commercial content as possible.

Unfortunately, the advertisement network is not always secure, as ad space can be bought by cybercriminals who can incorporate malicious links inside. That is especially true for websites that are less monitored, such as porn, gambling or torrent sites.[4] Therefore, redirects from might lead to such domains, where malicious links can result in malware infection.

That being said, as long as you do not click on any promotional links or the content you got redirected to, you should avoid all the negative consequences. Nevertheless, to remove Deloplen redirection tendencies, you will have to terminate the adware application that is installed on your device, or the security level will not be sufficient.

Additionally, if you suffer from Deloplen virus redirects, it might be that your browsing behavior is being monitored. Usually, the following data is collected:

  • IP address;
  • Technical details;
  • Geo-location;
  • Links clicked;
  • Sites visited;
  • Bookmarks;
  • Tracking cookies,[5] etc.

While it is considered to be standard practice to gather such-like information, there is no need to expose it to unknown parties that are linked to Thus, clean your browser and the computer from this unwanted activity – you can do it either manually or automatically.

Once you complete Deloplen removal, you should reset each of the installed browsers and then scan your computer with FortectIntego for best results. is a potentially unwanted program that redirects to suspicious sites, displays ads and might even slow down the browser

Beware of adware when installing new apps

Software bundling is a well-known tactic that is being used to distribute potentially unwanted programs. Users are often keen on downloading and installing software from sites like, File Hippo, Softpedia, Softonic, etc., but not many are aware that most of the installations might lead to PUPs. It is simply how it is – third party sites rely on ads and bundled software to monetize. Therefore, it is vital to pay attention when establishing media players, PDF converters, driver downloaders, and similar tools.

Thus, be attentive when installing new software:

  • Do not rush the installation – pay attention to every detail;
  • Look out for misleading buttons, grayed out buttons, pre-ticked boxes, etc.;
  • Decline all the offers or deals on the way;
  • Check out Privacy Policy, Terms of Service and other provided documents (do not install anything that does not include these);
  • Choose Advanced or Custom installation settings instead of Recommended/Quick ones and remove all optional components from the final installation list.

Another way to infect your machine by adware is after being misled by an attractive ad on the internet or online scams. The former might convince you with the attractive functionality of the app, while the latter will inform you about the alleged virus infections and possible data theft. In fact, already present adware often leads to phishing sites, so installing more bloatware becomes a question of time.

Stop redirects by removing adware from your device

Deloplen removal might be either a fast process or in some cases, quite lengthy one – it highly depends on your system configuration, experience with computers, and the amount of already installed PUPs or even malware. First, you could go into the list of all installed programs, and look for suspicious entries there (note that you will not find on the list – it is simply not how it works). If you find any, terminate them by uninstalling the app.

On the other hand, if you are unsure if your device is infected with malware, or you are not that good computers in general, you should rely on anti-malware software that would remove Deloplen virus and all other unwanted programs automatically.

How to prevent from getting adware

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.
