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 Reimage Cleaner Intego 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.

Tuniaf.com illustrationTuniaf.com is a so-called push notifications virus which generates potentially dangerous ads on the infected browser.

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 Reimage Cleaner Intego. This software is designed to clean missing, corrupted, or outdated registries and improving your computer's performance after the cyber attack.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.

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. It is a hassle when your website is protected from suspicious connections and unauthorized IP addresses.

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 server or network manager that need to monitor connections and activities. This is how you bypass some of the authentications factors and can remotely use your banking accounts without triggering suspicious with each login. 

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. It is better to clock the access to your website from different IP addresses. So you can keep the project safe and secure when you have the dedicated IP address VPN and protected access to the content management system.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
