What is Todayspromoa1.click ads?

Todayspromoa1.click tries to convince people that their system is in danger to sell antivirus

Todayspromoa1.clickFake security alerts can make people paranoid and download unnecessary tools

Todayspromoa1.click is a bogus website used to intimidate users into installing McAfee antivirus. Of course, McAfee has nothing to do with this fraudulent campaign. Crooks are only using their branding to appear trustworthy. The page uses various social engineering[1] methods to convince people that their system might be in danger without an antivirus.

The main goal of this site is to redirect people to the official McAfee website so that crooks could make money through the affiliate program and receive a cut from every subscription purchase. The bogus page may also cause push notification spam. The ads may be placed by rogue advertising networks.

As a result, people can end up on other scam pages that try to lure out personal information or trick them into downloading PUPs (potentially unwanted programs),[2] and even malware. However, the pop-ups can also look like security alerts. This is done in order to make users paranoid and purchase the antivirus.

Distribution methods

To avoid pages, like Todayspromoa1.click you should only visit websites that you know and trust. Do not click on random links and ads even if they seem to be promoting legitimate products and services. We also advise against using illegal streaming platforms.

They are unregulated, so they are full of deceptive ads and sneaky redirects. They may also display fake “Download” and “Play” buttons that open new tabs. Use legitimate streaming platforms, like Netflix or Hulu. They only require a small monthly subscription fee and people can consume as much content as they want.

If you have pop-ups appearing from questionable sources, it most likely means that you were surfing through web pages you should not have and click on dangerous links. Your browsing data might be exposed or sold to advertising networks and other third parties that use it for malicious purposes.

Use anti-malware tools to scan your machine

In that case, you should scan your system for adware.[3] We suggest using trusted professional security tools SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes for removal.

It should detect most suspicious apps and remove them successfully.

How to prevent from getting adware

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. 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 the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. 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.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
