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

Deloplen redirects
Deloplen 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.
Termination Delete adware by using security software or by following our detailed guide below

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 Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego for best results. PUP 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.

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

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

Computer users can suffer various losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Software issues created by malware or direct data loss due to encryption can lead to problems with your device or permanent damage. When you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work.

It is crucial to create updates to your backups after any changes on the device, so you can get back to the point you were working on when malware changes anything or issues with the device causes data or performance corruption. Rely on such behavior and make file backup your daily or weekly habit.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware occurs out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the system restoring purpose.
