Remove Technologiemounac.com virus (Simple Removal Guide)

removal by Gabriel E. Hall - - | Type: Adware

Why do Technologiemounac.com ads keep showing up?

First of all, we want to point out that Technologiemounac.com virus is closely related to notorious Social2Search virus, which has been bothering computer users for a quite long time now[1]. Even Microsoft has declared war for this ad-injector in 2016[2]. In fact, that vague website advertises the ad-supported potentially unwanted program (PUP). We suggest you stay away from these programs because they both have quite a poor reputation. We want to warn you about Technologiemounac.com redirect issue, which typically starts bothering people who install some potentially unwanted programs on their computers unintentionally. For example, your browser might suddenly redirect you to hxxp://technologiemounac.com/signup or a similar shady-looking site that asks to log in using your social media account (for example, Twitter). According to this browser hijacker, it uses your Twitter data to “give you personal results based on what you search.” These ads will be integrated into results pages whenever you use any search engine, and that might annoy you, especially if you did not install this application by your choice. However, considering the list of permissions this PUP gets regarding your Twitter account, you should never provide your login details to it!

What is more, that vague site also warns that Social2Search collects your IP address, URLs you visit and other information with the help of add-ons, proxies, dll, cookies, pixels and other tracking technologies[3]. According to this spyware-type pest, it needs such information to show you advertising. You should decide whether you want this vague program to display ads to you and interrupt your browsing sessions on a daily basis. Besides, we have discovered some statements by Technologiemounac.com malware that do not match at all. For example, this page promises that Social2Search app never shares your browsing history or search history with anyone, while in its Privacy Policy it says that it “might disclose, share or sell to third parties this non-personally identifiable collected information.” Privacy Policy also clearly states that the program collects “browsing usage including, URLs of the pages, clickstream data, […].

Questions about Technologiemounac.com virus

Such presentation of the program seems deceptive. Besides, you should beware of Technologiemounac.com ads, which can take you to highly suspicious or even malicious Internet sites. These ads most likely will pop-up on your screen whenever you launch your browser and urge you to view various third-party offers and deals. Besides, please be very careful and not fall for Christmas and New Years Eve-themed scammy offers [4]. Stay away from questionable ads, because they might direct you to dangerous places on the Internet. In general, cyber security experts agree that Technologiemounac.com removal is essential if you wish to keep the computer safe. Therefore, to help you remove Technologiemounac.com hijacker, we provide manual removal instructions. Of course, you can delete it manually using ReimageIntego and similar software.

How did I infect my browser with this virtual parasite?

Technologiemounac.com hijack takes place in case the computer user installs freeware in a rush and selects Default or Standard installation method. These settings almost always contain pre-marked agreements to install bundled software, which appears to be a combination of browser hijackers or adware. To keep such programs away, install new programs responsibly and develop a habit to always configure installation settings. Switch them from Basic/Default/Standard to Advanced/Custom and unselect permissions to install “recommended” third-party software[5]. This simple modification can help you to avoid browser hijackings, stealthy adware infiltration and similar problems.

How can I remove Technologiemounac.com ads and clean my computer system?

The easiest way to remove Technologiemounac.com virus and of course stop it from displaying ads is to uninstall it along with Social2Search virus. To do this, follow these informative guidelines we provide. Some computer users might find these instructions confusing; in such case, we suggest using user-friendly anti-spyware programs that can quickly remove unwanted spyware/malware programs from the system. To complete Technologiemounac.com removal, run a full system scan with a proper anti-spyware tool.

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.
