removal by Jake Doevan - - | Type: Adware

Ketintontrat.info is a deceptive domain that urges users to enable notifications to spam them with endless ads

Ketintontrat.info

Ketintontrat.info is a redirect virus that modifies the settings of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera or other browsers in order to perform its suspicious activities. Applications that access the targeted machine and alter the way browsers behave without users' consent are called potentially unwanted programs. Unfortunately, such infections are sometimes hard to terminate due to their behavior and obfuscation tactics. Ketintontrat.info is one of many websites that users might get redirected to when they are infected with adware,[1] as such domains like a scam, phishing or even malware-laden ones soon becomes a daily routine. Users are also forced to view endless pop-ups, banners, deals, offers, promotions, and other commercial content. To remove Ketintontrat.info virus' redirection tendencies and other intrusive behavior, users need to find and terminate the unwanted program that is installed on their devices.

Summary
Name Ketintontrat.info
Type Adware/PUP/Push notification virus
Infiltration Software bundling, third-party websites
Symptoms Frequent redirects to suspicious sites, annoying pop-up ads, altered web browser settings, and similar intrusive behavior

Optimization To make sure your system is running well after PUP infection, scan it with Reimage

Potentially unwanted applications like Ketintontrat.info are the pest of the internet and, while not the most dangerous programs out there, are most certainly the most annoying disturbances users have to deal with. Unfortunately, careless online behavior when infected with a PUP might lead to more severe consequences, such as money loss, malware infections or even identity theft. 

Additionally, most PUPs collect a variety of information that can be later be sold for marketing purposes or even misused by cybercriminals. Therefore, if you notice redirects to Ketintontrat.info or similar sites, your browser is compromised, and it is best not to perform any bank transactions or take on online shopping – the data you enter might be stolen!

Ketintontrat.info is also social engineering attack that abuses the notification feature that is legitimate tool used by many to receive useful information from sites that are relevant to the particular user (nevertheless, many users are getting annoyed with the push notification pop-ups on most of the sites they visit, with around 52% disliking[2] the feature). However, as practice shows, many dodgy websites adapted this element to generate profits for unknown parties.

In fact, there are so many of push notification scam sites that those who are infected with adware are mostly linked to Parliery.info, Motheremutand.infoRobotcaptcha.info, and similar. As soon as users land on one of those, they are asked to enable notifications to view the alleged content of the site:

Ketintontrat.info wants to show notifications

Allow   Deny

Never allow these notifications, as it will not enable the alleged video or other similar content. Simply leave the website and take care of Ketintontrat.info removal by either using security software or our manual removal guide below. After termination, we recommend scanning the device with Reimage for best results.

Ketintontrat.info adware
Ketintontrat.info is a domain used in adware campaigns. These unwanted programs often enter machines without users noticing then perform a variety of changes to the installed web browsers

Programs downloaded from third-party websites often include PUPs

Most users are unaware of the deception that lies within software bundling. In fact, the scheme is engineered so that users are less likely to notice all the bonus programs during the installation procedure, as more installs lead to more profits for both freeware and PUP authors. Therefore, it is up to you to stop unwanted programs before they manage to enter your computer and alter web browser settings.

For that, you should never rush the installation procedure and always check if required documents are present (Terms of Service, Privacy Policy). Also, make sure you check every installation step carefully, as PUP the developers often use tricks like grayed out “Skip” buttons, pre-ticked boxes, etc. Finally, opt for Advanced/Custom mode instead of Recommended/Quick one – it will allow you to terminate all the optional programs before finalizing the installation.

Another type of adware programs is those that deceive users with the alleged useful functionality. For example, apps like driver updaters, registry cleaners,[3] junk removal tools, PDF creators, and similar might all be ad-supported. In such a case, users will see ads and redirects and will not be able to connect to anything. Thus, do not download crapware, and check reviews online before installing any type of software you have never heard of.

Therefore, to remove Ketintontrat.info pop-ups, you will have to find and eliminate the unwanted program that is tied to the intrusive behavior.
