Offers By Context – adware that claims to provide real offers although the truth is far from this

Offers By Context virus

Offers By Context (also known as OffersByContext) is a typical adware program that pushes bogus notifications for income. This potentially unwanted program is promoted as a very useful tool that can be used for saving money. Unfortunately, but we have not managed to find a person who paid less than others while using this browser add-on. Even more, sometimes it seems that this program was created for initiating serious havoc on people's computers. Once inside the system, Offers By Context may start initiating pop-up ads that are labeled as “ads by Offers By Context”, “by Offers By Context”, “Offers By Context ads”, and similar.

Name Offers By Context/OffersByContext
Type Potentially unwanted program
Sub-type Ad-supported application
Ad labels This suspicious program provides notifications that are labeled as “ads by Offers By Context”, “by Offers By Context”, “Offers By Context ads”, etc.
Activities The adware promotes advertising, redirecting, and data-tracking activities regarding users' online sessions. Additionally, the PUP performs changes on the browser's homepage and new tab search zones

No matter that Offers By Context pop-up ads may be filled with price comparisons, notifications about discounts and similar information, they may redirect you to different sites than expected. Additionally, the deals that you are provided with by adware developers often appear to be misleading even if these people might try to prove the opposite:

The offers you are being presented with, are targeted and of similar category to the website you were recently visiting. These are real offers, which are more than likely to be more of an interest to you in comparison to usual none targeted advertisement.

Offers By Context virus is a sneaky app that often gets bundled with other software. Once it lands on the targeted system, web browsers that are located on the computer are infected and experience major setting modifications that can be spotted in the browser's homepage and new tab search sections.

Besides, Offers By Context can add browser helper objects (BHOs)[1] such as extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons that allow the adware to carry out suspicious advertising and redirecting activities. Additionally, the adware might inject HTTP cookies or other tracking objects such as beacons and pixels to spy on the user's online sessions.

Afterward, the potentially unwanted program starts recording your IP address, geolocation, pages visited, hyperlinks/advertisements clicked, saved bookmarks, etc. Then, Offers By Context developers can use the captured data in targeted advertising campaigns and provide users with attractive-looking offers.

Offers By Context will supposedly try to benefit from the pay-per-click technique.[2] Also, if you are provided with rogue security software offers, do not take them seriously as they are placed only to swindle money from you. Continuously, surveys that ask for private data also should be avoided, otherwise, you might get personal information exposed.

For the best results, we also recommend scanning the machine with Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

Stealth distribution methods promoted by adware developers

Just like any other suspicious program, ad-supported applications can easily be downloaded from such sites as,, and However, you should be very careful with such applications because, as you may have already understood, they may easily initiate serious havoc on your PC system.

In addition, such programs as this one are also actively spread using a very well-known distribution method that is known as “bundling”. Please, make sure you monitor the installation of every free program because there are hundreds of free applications that may have been involved in some adware program distribution.

In order to avoid suspicious downloads, you have to check such sources of information as Privacy Policy and End user's license agreement. In addition, make sure you opt for the Custom or Advanced installation option that will help you to see what “free additions” are offered in a bundle.[3] Of course, you will have to uncheck checkboxes that agree with the installation of suspicious browser add-ons. 

Last but not least, it is advisable to install reliable computer security software that will secure your browsing and computing work automatically. Once you download the tool on your machine, ensure that it is regularly updated for proper operating.

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.
