Most popular methods of stealthy potentially unwanted program installations

PUPs are rarely installed willingly. Developers of such software use various distribution techniques that install PUPs without the direct confirmation of users. One of the most popular techniques is software bundling. Packs filled with additional installers are usually downloaded from third-party software vendors but, in some cases, legitimate app developers use this method too.

The only way to avoid PUPs via software bundles is to stay attentive when installing new apps. Users must choose the Advanced or Custom installation modes and then opt-out from installing any untrustworthy, suspicious, or unwanted programs. If you're unsure about any offered software, either do a web search or check if we haven't written about it.

How to prevent from getting adware

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

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.
