Various pop-ups, messages, fake alerts, banners, and messages trying to trick you into installing more intrusive applications fill up the screen when the PUA gets on the machine.

Main purposes of such Inlog Optimizer material:

  • to push other products by saying that the system has problems and you need to purchase tools to fix those issues;
  • to hijack your in-browser searchers and redirect to needed pages where views and visits can be generated and later monetized;
  • to install other applications directly on your browser or the machine that work in the background;
  • to show commercial content and display various advertisements to keep you from browsing normally;
  • to spy on users or even smuggle such malware on the machine;
  • to steal information from the system like stored credentials or private details about the victim, logins and passwords.

Inlog Optimizer has no value, so you shouldn't keep the tool on the machine, especially when it does not provide any claimed features. All the functions that this optimizer should provide already exist on the Windows operating system, so there is no need to add the new tool for those purposes.

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

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

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
