Tuniaf.com is an adware program which is designed to deliver commercial content on targeted browsers.

Tuniaf.com is a so-called push notifications virus which appears as a suspicious website asking to enable notifications. Experts classify it as an adware program and note that it is closely related to a similar potentially unwanted program (PUP) — Veirregnant.club. Ad-supported programs are designed to deliver potentially dangerous advertisements which can lead to malware infections.

Removal You should use a reliable antivirus to uninstall Tuniaf.com. Later, scan the device with Reimage to fix virus damage 

Users infect their computers with so-called Tuniaf.com virus if they tend to install third-party applications without monitoring the procedure carefully. Once the adware sneaks into the system, it starts collecting numerous details about its users. Usually, the gathered data consists of the following information:

  • IP address[1];
  • Browser history;
  • Frequently visited pages;
  • Clicked ads;
  • Etc.

Keep in mind that even though this data is classified as non-personally identifiable[2], the developers of Tuniaf.com adware could get your email address if you put it in your search queries and use it for phishing. Furthermore, the collected information is used to create customized ads and attract people to click on them.

Unfortunately, developers of ad-supported programs are only interested in generating pay-per-click revenue and might promote potentially dangerous content. In other terms, you risk getting infected with malware if you click on Tuniaf.com ads which appear during browsing sessions. 

For all the reasons mentioned above, we suggest you remove Tuniaf.com if you are redirected to the suspicious page asking to enable notifications. You can do that with the help of a professional security tool which should identify, locate and eliminate all components of the adware.

After Tuniaf.com removal, you can easily fix virus damage by running a full system scan with Reimage. This software is designed to clean missing, corrupted, or outdated registries and improving your computer's performance after the cyber attack. 

Pay attention during the installation of freeware to avoid PUPs

Developers of adware programs are using a popular marketing method to spread potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) for a while now. This technique is called bundling as it allows to pack two applications together and install them as one. Likewise, people should pay attention during the installation of freeware if they want to avoid PUPs.

The first step is to never agree on Quick or Recommended installation mode. You must select Advanced or Custom one as it reveals additional components that are bundled with the primary application. Later, search for pre-selected checkmarks that allow installing PUPs — de-select them.

Also, refrain from clicking on online ads and other commercial content online. Usually, such actions can lead you to a suspicious page where criminals distribute malicious and potentially unwanted programs. The best way to protect your system is to install a professional antivirus with real-time protection.
