Mobfree.click is a suspicious website that users are redirected to unexpectedly when browsing the web on iOS devices

Mobfree.click is a redirect virus that prompts users to download unsafe apps and might download malware in the background

Mobfree.click is a potentially malicious website that can appear on Google Chrome or Safari browsers during the web browsing sessions on iOS devices, such as iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The issue seems to be only affecting those who are using iOS 9 or higher version of the operating system.

Users complained that Mobfree.click volume redirect virus shows up only during the entry to a particular website (such as questionablecontent.net, consequenceofsound.net, or wallmart.com). There is no pattern to which sites are affected, as some users said they have no issues, while others did. However, the one thing in common is that all these sites use JavaScript[1] ads that trigger Mobfree.click redirects. The ads can come in a variety of forms, such as pop-ups, banners, in-text links, and similar.

Once redirected to Mobfree.click, users claimed that they are prompted to download suspicious applications, and at the bottom of the browser they also see a message “Waiting for app download,” which might indicate that some malicious apps are being downloaded in the background.[2]

Name  Mobfree.click
Type  iPhone virus
Infiltration   Malicious JavaScript on a variety of websites
Risk factors  Installation of other PUPs or malware, personal data disclosure, money loss
Symptoms   Redirects to Mobfree.click and other dubious sites, installation of unwanted apps
Termination   Use security software or delete the unwanted programs manually
Recovery  Scan your device with Reimage for best results

Due to such apprehensive activity, it is likely that unwanted applications or even malware might be installed without users' interaction, or new Profiles added that would later spam them with deals, offers, promotions, and other commercial content. In such a case, Mobfree.click removal should be performed as soon as possible.

While one of the workarounds would be simply installing Adblock, it will not help if any payloads are already installed on the iPhone or another iOS device. Depending on the type of malicious application installed via Mobfree.click redirect, the symptoms, and the risk factors may vary significantly.

Users who got redirected to Mobfree.click site might have installed the following:

  • Adware or another potentially unwanted program
  • A malicious Profile that might start redirecting and spamming browsers with ads
  • Malware that can steal personal information, such as login details of various accounts

It goes without saying that Mobfree.click redirects can cause serious harm to your iPhone or other iOS devices. Therefore, if the suspicious activity is not going away, you need to remove Mobfree.click virus. To do that, you can either employ security software and thoroughly scan your device, or make use of our manual instructions below.

Additionally, security experts[3] recommend clearing web browser data and deleting any Profiles that could have been created by Mobfree.click redirect virus. To ensure your phone is fully recovered, you should also scan it with a repair tool Reimage.

Ways to avoid browser redirects and iPhone infections

As we already mentioned, the culprit that is related to suspicious activity lies within web scripts and malicious ads. While website admin can manually remove it, in some cases he or she just would not do it (ads bring developers revenue, and sometimes it is the only way to monetize on the content created).

Malicious ads are a huge problem, and some site developers cannot cope with it properly due to the way JavaScript works, and sometimes checking each and every single ad that is being server would be almost impossible. Nevertheless, bad actors often choose to use ads as the main malware infiltration technique on torrent, porn, and similar sites.

The best solution would be installing the ad-blocking application and ensuring your device anti-malware software. Additionally, you should never download apps from suspicious domains you get redirected to.

Stop Mobfree.click redirects and pop-ups on your iPhone or other iOS devices

To remove Mobfree.click redirects manually, you will have to perform a variety of actions on your iPhone. Please follow these steps carefully:
