Radiospick is a malicious website used to extort people's personal data

Radiospick.net image

Radiospick is an untrustworthy website with offers a subscription-based service for music. However, it has also been added to an adware program which causes fake ads on users' machines right after infiltrating them. Adware programs are created to deliver traffic[1] to affiliate websites and in such way generate profit for its developers.

Typically, Radiospick.net ads deliver a fake message which offers users to obtain The new iPhone X for $1 or other expensive gifts. It might deliver other types of ads, such as pop-ups, deals, offers, banners, discounts and other unwanted content, which is typically irrelevant to the user and promote bogus software, fake updates, and other highly suspicious content.

Developers of adware are putting a lot of effort to promote products and services of affiliated parties. Do not let crooks monetize at the expense of your compromised Google Chrome or other browser and remove Radiospick virus immediately!

Individuals who get rerouted directly to radiospick website might be tempted by the offer to start a trial of the service. The trial is offered for only $1 (this is done to obtain credit card details) and lasts three days. Afterward, the victims’ bank account is charged €49 monthly.

The information about service cancellation is quite obscure, and there are many unclear statements about it. Thus, users might just not understand how it works, and subscription will continue automatically. Unfortunately, returning the money which was already charged is impossible.

If you want to use a music streaming service, you should pick a safe and legitimate one. Not only is it cheaper, but you can be sure that personal details such as bank account information will remain private and will not be abused. Using questionable services like the one offered by Radiospick is never a good idea, especially if they are using deceptive tactics to lure users into subscribing.

The most threatening trait of Radiospick virus is its redirecting trends. Adware is a typically harmless piece of software which does not damage computer files directly. However, the rerouting to questionable domains might compromise computer’s safety and infect it with nasty malware.

Therefore, if you got redirected to a suspicious website or accidentally clicked on an ad, close down your browser immediately. Remember that adware might install additional components on your PC without asking; hence you should perform a full Radiospick removal using anti-spyware software, such as ReimageIntego

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
