removal by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Adware

Dredrewlaha.info is a potentially dangerous sites actively tries to make users enable notifications to spam them with ads

Dredrewlaha.info

Dredrewlaha.info is a site that can be encountered at any time during the web browsing sessions on Google Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or any other browser. Users who land on the site will be immediately asked to enable push notifications – the feature is used by many legitimate sites in order to make the relevant site information accessible directly on the screen.

Unfortunately, many scams and phishing sites,[1] including Dredrewlaha.info, adopted it and the element is being abused by malicious actors who create fake sites to display pop-ups ads incorporating deals, offers, promotions, coupons, and sometimes even fake security/update alerts directly into users' desktops. Therefore, if you were a victim of this scam, you should check how to disable Dredrewlaha.info notifications on every browser below.

However, if you are getting redirected to Dredrewlaha.info or similar sites (for example, Maranhesduve.club, Rxlnd.com or  Chainthorn.com) that ask you to enable notifications in order to see the alleged website content, it is highly likely that your computer is infected with adware.[2] The ad-supported software is typically installed via a bundled software package and then starts redirecting users to unknown domains and display ads on all sites that they visit.

Name Dredrewlaha.info
Type Push notification virus
Additional information If you notice frequent redirects to Dredrewlaha.info and other unsafe domains, your computer might be infected with adware
Infection means Software bundles, third-party sites, malicious ads
Symptoms Intrusive ads on all sites that you visit, pop-ups advertising fake updates or applications popping on desktop, etc.
Risk factors Installation of other potentially unwanted software, malware infection, sensitive data disclosure to unknown parties, etc. 
Termination 
  • If you allowed notifications from the Dredrewlaha.info, you can stop them via your browser (check for instructions in the last section)
  • If your browser is constantly redirecting you to suspicious sites and you see excessive amount of ads on all sites that you visit, scan your computer with ReimageIntego or other security software

Typically, Dredrewlaha.info scam begins as soon as you enter the site, regardless of how you got there. In most of the cases, users will see a blank page with the text:

PREPARE TO DOWNLOAD!

You need to enable browser notifications to start downloading

ENABLE AND DOWNLOAD

Immediately, a natural question arises: download what? However, some users might find it tempting and enable the Dredrewlaha.info notifications anyways. This is typical behavior from a scam site – it does not provide much information but actively encourages to enable notifications. The problem is that novice computer users are often not aware of how to stop Dredrewlaha.info pop-ups afterward and have to endure them or look for professional help, which obviously is not free.

Therefore, it would be best not to enable notifications on dodgy sites like Dredrewlaha.info. Nevertheless, if you did do that, getting rid of the intrusive ads is relatively simple, although the instructions vary based on the browser used. For full instructions, please check the Dredrewlaha.info removal section at the bottom.

Dredrewlaha.info notificationsDredrewlaha.info is a push notification virus that might appear repeatedly on the screen while browsing on Google Chrome or another browser

Likewise, the sudden appearance of Dredrewlaha.info, and especially if it is accompanied by other intrusive behavior, might indicate that your computer is indeed infected with adware. The best way to get rid of it is by scanning your device with ReimageIntego or another security software, although manual elimination is also possible.

The biggest danger of adware lies in its redirecting tendencies, as you might get rerouted several times and land on a phishing or tech support scam[3] site. This way, you might be tricked into installing bogus software or giving away the money to cybercriminals. Thus, never interact with suspicious content that your browser takes you to.

Once you remove Dredrewlaha.info virus from your computer, you should also reset each of the installed browsers, as adware tends to modify their settings to lead to misleading sites.

Beware of software bundles – they might be pushing adware behind your back

Download software from third-party sites became a common practice by now, as users often resort to free tools for certain functionality, such as file conversions, system optimization, driver updating, and more. However, these programs might not be entirely safe in the first place, so you should always check online reviews before installing an unknown application on your computer.

Another important part is to perform the installation process carefully. Here's what you should do when establishing new applications:

  • Read through each installation step carefully
  • Check if Terms of Service and Privacy Policy is provided (this is mandatory for all legitimate companies and can often hint on many hidden features, such as advert display)
  • Beware of tricks freeware developers employ: watch out for fine print, pre-ticked boxes, misleading button placements, deceptive offers, etc.
  • Once prompted, always pick Advanced/Custom settings instead of Recommended/Quick ones  – it will make the installation process more transparent.

Dredrewlaha.info redirectIf you got redirected to Dredrewlaha.info from a malicious site, DO NOT enable notifications and leave the site immediately

Ways to get rid of Dredrewlaha.info pop-ups and the hidden adware

In most of the cases, users are not aware that their machines are infected with adware – it is done intentionally so much so that the programs are often hidden and don't even show up on the installed application list. Besides, there will be no “Dredrewlaha.info virus” entry, so users need to find the application(s) that is causing the redirects in the first place.

To remove Dredrewlaha.info adware, you can employ anti-malware software that specializes in PUPs, or you can manually look through the installed application list and uninstall everything suspicious. Nevertheless, the latter is not recommended for less experienced users, as they might get rid of important OS components by accident. Once the adware is gone, you should also reset each of the installed browsers, as explained below.

However, if no adware is involved, but you see intrusive desktop notifications, you can perform Dredrewlaha.info removal via your browser by disabling notifications for the site. Here's how to do it:

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.
