What is Eaddressor.top ads?

Eaddressor.top pop-ups won't leave you alone until you disable them

Eaddressor.topEaddressor.top pop-ups may start showing up soon after you press the "Allow" button within the notification prompt

Eaddressor.top is a scam website that you could have encountered while browsing the web on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or another web browser. You could have accessed it after clicking on a deceptive link or after an automatic URL redirect from another site.

Another possibility is that your computer has adware installed on it – a type of potentially unwanted program that spreads via software bundles and displays deals, offers, banners, auto-play, and all sorts of other ads. Besides, it may track your data and sell it to advertisers, as well as engage in all types of other nasty stuff. You simply don't want this software on your computer, and you should definitely check for it.

However, you are probably here because you tried to remove Eaddressor.top ads to no avail. The intrusive notifications do not go away even after scanning the computer with security software. This is because the phenomenon by itself has nothing to do with malware or adware.[1] Instead, you were tricked into allowing the website to send notifications to you.

Alternatively, you could have clicked on the pop-up by accident since redirects from and to websites like these happen within just a few seconds from one another. Unfortunately, as soon as you give permission to the site, you will be spammed with intrusive pop-up ads that can show up at any time and disturb your activities when working on a PC.

To make matters worse, these notifications might include links to fake, hacked, scam, phishing, and other malicious websites. Even an accidental click can lead to the installation of malware or put you in danger of being scammed in other ways. Never click on these prompts and follow the details below to remove the annoying ads from your system once and for all.

Scam explained: how to avoid being a victim?

Eaddressor.top is not unique in its operation – Yourseismo.top, Uishoaarran.to or News-Burewo.cc are perfect examples or a that. To operate successfully, crooks use various social engineering[2] tricks designed to fool users into doing something they normally wouldn't (if they knew the extent of their actions).

Upon entering the site, you are instantly presented with two components of the page – a prompt that asks you to enable notifications and a picture or a message which implies that pressing “Allow” is the right thing to do. In order to make users click on the button website authors want them to, they need to present the feature as something else.

For example, this is one of the most common messages that you might encounter after accessing a push notification scam site:

Click Allow if you are not a robot

Here, crooks want to make it seem like the prompt is a simple verification that many of us encountered when visiting legitimate websites. Captcha codes are one such example. It is used to protect websites from flooding them with connections of bots, crashing them in the process.

Alternatively, you could be presented with the download prompt, a video about to be played, etc. Anything to make you believe that the “Allow” button is something else. If you encounter such websites in the future, make sure you leave them immediately, as they usually redirect users even further. This way, you might encounter scams like “$1000 Walmart Gift Card Winner” or “Your system is infected with (3) viruses.”

Do not interact with these websites and especially never click on links or download files. If any files are downloaded automatically, remove them immediately.

Eaddressor.top redirectConstant redirects to suspicious sites might indicate adware infection

Ad-blockers are a good way of removing most ads from most websites, although they come with few downfalls. For example, they might sometimes break elements of some sites; they also prevent content creators from monetizing non-intrusive ads that help pay for service fees. The choice is yours, however.

Finally, use adequate software that can help you to detect fraud online. Security programs that use web protection are the best for that. Although keep in mind that scam sites emerge in thousands each day, thus you will never be protected 100%. Exercise caution and be vigilant when browsing the web.

Take care of adware

If you see Eaddressor.top notifications regularly, it does not mean that your browser is infected. However, if you have no idea where these pop-ups are coming from, there is a big chance you might not have noticed how adware managed to slip into your device without asking properly.

The most common symptoms of adware infection include:

  • Intrusive ads on all visited websites
  • Strange browser redirects to questionable places
  • Altered browser settings
  • New extensions or programs present on the computer
  • Slower browser operation, etc.

While most adware applications are not malicious and specialize in displaying ads, others can be quite dangerous, to the point where they can be called spyware or malware. Examples of such instances include the notorious Wajam campaign, as well as Lenovo's Superfish scandal, which resulted in the company paying millions in fines[3] due to the comptonization of user online security.

In any case, if you want to remove adware, you can do it quickly by employing powerful anti-malware software such as SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes. You can also look for suspicious apps manually where all the installed programs are, although this might not always be possible, especially if you have a habit of installing them from third-party sources (adware is commonly spread via software bundle packages, which results in unintentional installation).

You should also not forget to clean your web browsers. You can easily do that with the help of a powerful cleaning tool ReimageIntego – it can also repair damaged system components if the damage was sustained due to malware or any other reason. Alternatively, you can delete web data and remove cookies manually. If you still can't get rid of ads and redirects, you can reset browsers altogether.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
