Tontritrattof.info. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

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

Tontritrattof.info is a website used in multiple adware campaigns on Google Chrome and other browsers

Tontritrattof.info
Tontritrattof.info is the program that delivers questionable content and redirects to unreliable websites.

Tontritrattof.info is a domain that users mostly encounter when their devices are infected with a potentially unwanted program[1] – adware. These applications get installed into the device unnoticed together with third-party software that is hosted on Freeware distribution sites or when users intentionally look for a program for a certain function, such as converting PDFs, uninstalling software, update drivers, etc. 

Those who install adware program on their computers soon notice the effects of such infection. For example, their Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, and other browsers redirect to scam, spoofed or phishing sites (including Tontritrattof.info), they can notice an increased amount of pop-up ads, banners, offers, deals and other commercial content on all websites that they visit. On top of that, due to a large number of ads, the operation of the browser becomes slower, and internet speeds might also be impacted.

Tontritrattof.info itself is a push notification virus that prompts users to allow notifications to be displayed once they land on the site. Allegedly, they need to do that in order to view some type of content, such a video, or a picture. Users receive the following prompt:

Tontritrattof.info wants to Show notifications

Press tap the Allow button to continue

However, users should never allow such notifications to be shown from Tontritrattof.info. In fact, there is no point in interact with the site in any way – best is to close down the tab or even the browser completely (clicking “Block” will not change anything, and users will be shown the same pop-up repeatedly). Unfortunately, the redirects to the site might not stop. To remove Tontritrattof.info pop-ups and other intrusive behavior, users will have to terminate the adware program installed on their device.

The problem with Tontritrattof.info redirects becomes a serious issue once users agree to enable notifications, and pop-ups appear directly on users' desktops, even when the browser is not running. If interacted with such notifications, users might end up on dangerous sites and get infected with a banking trojan,[2] ransomware, or other devastating malware.

Unlike Tontritrattof.info PUP, malware might steal your sensitive information by recording your keystrokes or taking screenshots, take over your camera, encrypt your personal files, secretly abuse your system resources to mine cryptocurrency[3] for hackers, etc. Without a doubt, no users should face such devastating infections due to a redirect from a Tontritrattof.info site. 

Additionally, pop-ups from Tontritrattof.info might prompt users to install browser extensions, add-ons or toolbars to mess with the computer performance even more. These features affect the speed of your device, makes Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Safari run slower than ever before.

Unfortunately, Tontritrattof.info behaves like any other cyber intruder that is related to advertisers – tracks and collects data about its visitors. Once the system is infected adware can access:

  • IP address;
  • location;
  • search queries;
  • browsing history;[4]
  • most viewed sites, etc.

You should proceed with Tontritrattof.info removal for this reason alone, but, as previously mentioned, there are multiple other reasons to do so. Additionally, some adware apps can make significant changes to the system, like changing Windows Registry or creating new scheduled tasks – this might complicate its termination. In such a case, we recommend scanning the PC with a reliable anti-malware software.

Tools like Reimage can perform a system check and indicate what additional programs got added by Tontritrattof.info. You will require only a few minutes to follow up with automatic PUP removal.

Finally, remember that you should also change notification preferences on your web browsers to perform a full Tontritrattof.info removal. For that, follow these instructions:

  • Go to Advanced settings of your web browser.
  • Locate to Content settings/Site settings.
  • Find a section with Privacy & Security preferences.
  • Then you should find a section with Notification settings.
  • You need to Block notifications from Tontritrattof.info or any other websites, instead of Allow.
  • You can also Remove the site from the list. 
  • Repeat these steps on every installed browser.

Avoid getting software from P2P network sites

Experts[5] from all over the world have always been saying how important paying enough attention to the content you access online is. When you download programs from questionable websites or file-sharing services, you risk of getting additional programs like adware or browser hijackers.

Choosing Advanced or Custom settings can give you the advantage since this option allows seeing all the included programs. This way you unpack the bundle formed by freeware providers and PUP developers. Also, keep antivirus tools on the system so that deceptive pages can be blocked.
