Multitimer is an adware[1] application that targets Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and other internet browsers. It typically enters users' machines without them knowing (software bundling method) and offers to set timers and alarms. Adware programs are known to distribute unwanted advertisements in various forms, including pop-ups, banners, offers, coupons, in-text links, video or audio ads, etc. Additionally, users noted that other potentially unwanted programs might be installed without their permission as well. 

SUMMARY
Name Multitimer virus
Type Adware
Distribution Software bundling, advertisement on the internet, etc
Symptoms Intrusive ads, redirects and installation of additional programs
Elimination Automatic – install Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego; manual – check guide below

The excessive advertisement is used to promote the contents of sponsors' websites and boost their traffic to increase sales. In some cases, users might be redirected to a genuine website, such as Amazon. However, the main danger lies in suspicious and offensive-content sites. Do not forget that developers of adware do not check the content they are promoting; thus, you can end up on phishing or malware-ridden domain. Because of this danger alone, you should hurry and remove Multitimer virus from your PC.

It is standard procedure for this type of program to install questionable toolbars into the browser and redirect your every click to a sponsored website filled with more ads. If you are not experienced enough, you might be tricked into installing bogus software that is absolutely worthless (for example, fake system optimizers such as SpeedUp PC 2018 or Swift PC Optimizer). These programs scan your machine and show the fraudulent result to make you buy licensed version of the program to fix fake issues.

Multitimer uses various data tracking tools, such as cookies,[2] beacons, JavaScripts, and others, to collect information such as:

  • IP address; geo-location, ads clicked, sites visited, etc. t
  • geo-location;
  • ads clicked;
  • websites visited;
  • system information (OS type, software installed, and similar)
  • etc.

Yes, adware does spy on you. Developers are interested in your interests, as they want to create a virtual profile based on your IP address. This helps them to generate targeted ads which may lure you buy from partners. 

Multitimer removal is crucial if you want to avoid data harvesting about you, possible malware infections, installation of additional applications and the annoyance of continuous advertisements. You can try to uninstall Multitimer manually, but that might be frustrating and take a while. If you want a faster solution, security experts[3] recommend Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

Adware infiltrates during incorrect freeware installation

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address. If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

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.
