Remove Unlimdate.com (Free Guide) - Removal Instructions

removal by Lucia Danes - - | Type: Adware

Unlimdate.com is the website supposedly offering adult dating services and connecting with tons of girls from the area

Unlimdate.com
Unlimdate.com is the pop-up redirects causing virus that makes users' device running slow and affects web browsers directly with additional content.

Unlimdate.com is the push notifications virus that offers various services to trick people into clicking on more pop-ups and pages, so needed data gets accessed. One of the tactics used to attract people is an adult dating service. This threat also focuses on tricking users into subscribing to notifications and additional content from the website itself and associated pages. Once you get redirected to this page, you encounter the pop-up which encourages to allow the notifications from this site. Unfortunately, one click on the message agrees to the additional content automatically.

Although this Unlimdate.com virus mimics the popular dating sites and applications like Tinder, there is no way you can connect with “hot girls in your area” like the website claims. Even those direct notifications about private messages on your desktop are false and can lead to more malicious content instead of love or communication with a real human being. You need a thorough system scan to eliminate the PUP and end intrusive behavior.

Category Potentially unwanted program
Symptoms Shows fraudulent messages on the desktop, browser, affects the performance and speed of the machine with intrusive content
Developer Digital International Inc.
Distribution Other PUPs, deceptive websites, insecure freeware installations
Main danger Tracks online browsing habits and shares the information with third-party companies
Elimination Get Reimage for general system cleaning and Unlimdate.com virus damage removal

Unlimdate.com adult dating website tricks single and curious people into clicking on various redirects, pop-ups, and banners with questionable content that leads to more pages filled with such content. Unfortunately, this is the primary purpose of such adware-type programs – to redirect online traffic and generate views that later on can be monetized. 

All the ad-supported websites like Unlimdate.com have this feature in common because advertisers that sponsor the distribution of such sites focus on pay-per-click revenue generation.[1] One click on the banner, pop-up, or the page itself creates the traffic redirect to affiliated websites, and all the visits get monetized. This is the only reason why adware programs get created and distributed.

Unfortunately, for the users, all this behavior is frustrating because of continuous interruption in the browsing online when Unlimdate.com shows up on the screen and the browser. Since this is a potentially unwanted program and the adware-type threat, it becomes more and more annoying and intrusive over time.

This is because Unlimdate.com can access data regarding your online browsing preferences and use that in later malvertising campaigns. Once the PUP comes on your machine, it starts tracking and recording details like most viewed sites, most searched items, location, and IP address.[2] Then, advertisements become more personalized and attractive for the specific user.

Unfortunately, this data tracking is common for advertisers and pages related to commercial content. Unlimdate.com can even share this information with third-party companies, and this general data collection problem is disclosed in the Privacy Policy of the initial “dating” site:

We collect data from or about the computers, phones, or other devices where you install or access our Service, depending on the permissions you’ve granted. We may associate the data we collect from your different devices, which helps us provide consistent Services across your devices. Browser and Device data may include data about your Internet browser type, operating system, hardware version, type and model, geolocation, IP address, connection data such as ISP, language and time zone. We also receive the URL of both the site you came from and the one you go to next.

This is a little part of the information that adware obtains because when you get tricked into using the adult dating service, you need to create the profile with details like name, location, age, gender, and other preferences and characteristics. So remove Unlimdate.com as soon as you get redirected to the initial site before clicking on any marketing material.

You can achieve the best Unlimdate.com removal results with tools like Reimage and a full system check. Researchers[3] always note that when dealing with PUPs and other silent intruders, you need to react as soon as possible because the adware can run on the system for a while before it starts to show these redirects and advertisements.

Unlimdate redirects
Unlimdate is the website that you start visiting unintentionally when the potentially unwanted program gets on your machine. This is a symptom of a push notifications virus.
 

Installation processes require more attention

You should already be aware of the malware infiltration possibility when the device is not appropriately protected. Keeping the antivirus program on the system helps to block intruders and maintain the system virus-free, but when you allow all the programs and intruders coming to the PC by agreeing to all the programs included in the third-party installation setup, you allow PUPs to infiltrate the machine.

There is a way to avoid these cyber infections – paying attention to installation processes and choosing correct options. Every time you download the update or a program, select Advanced or Custom options and pay close attention to all the steps. During such installations, you can see the list of bundled applications and choose what to install.

Make sure to delete Unlimdate.com virus entirely from the system, so all the redirects stop appearing

If you need a thorough Unlimdate.com removal, you should rely on the software that can detect malware, corrupted or useless files, and applications or even improve the general performance of your machine with one system scan. Sounds impossible? But choosing a reliable anti-malware program or a system tool can help to achieve this.

When you remove Unlimdate.com with the anti-malware program, the tool checks the system for suspicious activity, system issues and errors or files that seem malicious. Since this threat that you are dealing with is a PUP, it can install other applications behind your back and affect the performance this way. Running a full system scan detects malicious programs and terminates them.

You can remove virus damage automatically with a help of one of these programs: Reimage, SpyHunterCombo Cleaner, Malwarebytes Malwarebytes. We recommend these applications because they detect potentially unwanted programs and viruses with all their files and registry entries that are related to them.
