removal by Alice Woods - - | Type: Adware

Womatonsha.com is the potentially unwanted program that tricks users into confirming notifications from various related sites

Womatonsha.com

Womatonsha.com is the adware-type cyber threat that focuses on sending unwanted advertisements directly on the users' desktop. The website appears on the browser out of nowhere and frustrates with questionable pop-ups that get delivered immediately. A browser displays a suggestion to Allow or Confirm subscription to push notifications or different content. When the site gets interacted with, it automatically reacts and starts sending Womatonsha.com pop-up advertisements to your desktop when the device is launched regardless if the browser is open or not. However, this is only a few frustrating features that this PUP has.

Name Womatonsha.com
Type Adware
Category Potentially unwanted program
Symptoms Displays unwanted and intrusive commercial content, causes redirects
Distribution Deceptive websites, software bundles
Elimination Try scanning the system with ReimageIntego to find possible threats and Womatonsha.com

Womatonsha.com push notifications virus is using social engineering tactics to lure people into allowing the content and notifications.[1] This way any unwanted advertisements or different content can get delivered directly to users' desktop when the machine is on. It doesn't even matter if any browser is running at the time.

Unfortunately, Womatonsha.com virus also can alter registry entries and startup file to allow this application to launch every time the computer is restarted. The website is not delivering any information besides the constant redirects after each click on the content.

Womatonsha.com redirects to more suspicious pages filled with commercial content or intrusive advertisements, promoting questionable software or programs, updates. This is one of the methods used to deliver such kind of potentially unwanted programs.[2]

However, Womatonsha.com comes to the system using tons of different ways. When you get redirected to this page once, you can leave the website and forget it never happened, but when you see this page over and over again, you can be sure that the system is infected with adware-type cyber threat.

Most likely, this program got on the system from software bundle via insecure freeware installation when you skipped through important steps without paying enough attention. So you can also encounter Womatonsha.com-related browser extensions, add-ons or plugins that got in Chrome, Firefox, Explorer or other browsers without your permission.

Womatonsha.com virusWomatonsha.com is a push notifications virus that redirects users' online traffic to various unwanted sites.  

However, the main reason to remove Womatonsha.com is data tracking. Various advertisers track and collect information about their users and website visitors. Since this PUP causes redirects to tons of different commercial pages, your data gets exposed to all of them. Information that can be accessed include:

  • IP address;
  • Location;
  • Search queries;
  • Browsing history;
  • Commonly viewed sites and searched items.

This collected information later allows sponsors and creators of Womatonsha.com and related programs to make advertisements more geared towards your preferences. Then you encounter an increased amount of commercial content that looks more useful and persuasive.

Make sure to perform Womatonsha.com removal using reputable tools like antivirus programs. Remember that experts[3] all over the world advise choosing your program sources wisely so that you can avoid PUP infiltration. Additionally, to getting a tool like ReimageIntego and scanning the system, you should change browser settings.

To get rid of all Womatonsha.com caused notifications, redirects, pop-up ads, and all the intrusive content, you need to clean the system thoroughly. However, this program can alter browser settings and install other PUPs, so:

  • Go to the browser settings and make sure to locate Advanced options;
  • Find Site/Content settings section;
  • Expand Notification preferences;
  • There change all Allow notifications to Block notifications.
  • Remove suspicious sites from the list.
  • Also, delete all extensions, add-ons, or toolbars that got installed by Womatonsha.com.
  • Do this to all of your browsers.

Freeware bundled with adware gets downloaded from the internet

If you constantly visit malicious websites or click on pop-up advertisements with questionable content, you risk getting exposed to harmful material or even get cyber infections installed on the machine this way. Also, potentially unwanted programs get delivered to the computer by packing PUPs with freeware.

When you download and install software packed with potentially unwanted programs, especially without paying close attention, you get additional applications on the machine. You can avoid this by choosing Advanced or Custom options during the installation.

This option allows you to de-select additional programs prepared for the installation. However, the best tip we can give is to go for the official software provider, developer, and reputable sources when you update or install any program.

Eliminate Womatonsha.com alongside other potentially unwanted programs

To remove Womatonsha.com completely from the system, you should get a reputable anti-malware program and scan the device thoroughly. When the program checks your device for potentially unwanted or malicious programs and files it indicates what can and need to be deleted.

Then, you proceed with an automatic Womatonsha.com removal and can forget about these intrusive ads and redirects. However, to be completely sure that the computer is clean and infection isn't going to repeat itself, you should clear questionable material from the browser and change settings back to default.

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
