Scammers do not care about the safety of your personal information, so they do not filter the advertisers that send you promotions through their domain. This is their money-making machine using the pay-per-click[1] function, so more is always better for them. Next to the legitimate businesses promoting their products or services appear fraudsters with ads containing links leading to unsafe web pages.

Shady websites can show you fake error messages, warnings that your system is unprotected, prompting you to download possibly malicious software along with other scam schemes like Microsoft support alert that seeks to lure out your private information.

Reasons why your browser is acting erratically

No one wants to get bombarded with advertisements while using their device, even when not using their search engine. It causes a lot of irritation, especially if you do not know what the reason behind it is. It is important to educate yourself on how adware gets inside your machine to help prevent it in the future.

The most common culprit behind uninvited digital guests is software bundling. As competition between computer manufacturers has intensified, bundling has become a key strategy for attracting customers. For example, Microsoft Windows comes with many bundled tools. This was not unseen by potentially unwanted applications' developers. Programs created by them are usually spread through third-party websites.

They miss PUPs included as a package because they speed their way through the installation process by choosing the “Automatic” method and skipping all the steps. What you should do instead is to choose the “Custom” or “Advanced” approach and not rush. Read through the Privacy Policy to find out how your data is going to be used, what the program will keep track of.

Also, look out for additional files that are unrelated to what you are getting. Make sure to untick the boxes next to them if these files are not essential for the desired app to work. You might have installed a program this way that is causing pop-ups. push notificationsPop-up ads displayed by can lead to dangerous websites

Stay away from cracked software

We know that software can be costly, but downloading them illegally can pose serious threats. As we mentioned before, along with free programs, you can download PUAs or even malware. Cybereason[2] estimates that over 500,000 machines have been infected by malware from just one cracked app. The malware can steal information from their computer and even download more malware, making the problem much deeper.

Another reason to be careful of cracked software is that sites that distribute it often have pop-ups or redirects which send you to dangerous sites that could expose you to more serious threats like ransomware. It is important to distinguish dodgy advertisements by looking for grammar or spelling mistakes, considering if the imaging looks professional and modern.

Additionally, you have no way of knowing if the program will work before downloading it. You also will be unable to get updates, which means you will not receive security patches, and hackers can use vulnerabilities to access all sorts of data from your machine.

If you are already using this type of program, you might as well know what consequences you might face if you are caught. One of the more minor consequences is that you may be blocked by the software developer temporarily or permanently. For example, if you pirate a copy of Adobe Photoshop, then Adobe could block you from using any of their software in the future. If your internet service provider catches you pirating software, they could report you or block your internet connection. The worst thing that could happen if you live in the US is to receive a fine of up to $150,000 per file.[3]

How to prevent from getting adware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
