The website is deceptively made to appear to host a video, along with a convincing message pleading with users to click the “Allow” button to continue watching. Unfortunately, there is no video content on the website, and there is no other content.

Users are bombarded with obtrusive pop-up ads after clicking the “Allow” button; some of these ads continue to appear long after the browser has been closed. These crooks might also make use of rogue advertising networks that send users to risky websites, which could only serve to worsen the problem. As a result, unwary people could land on phishing websites that try to collect personal information from them or persuade them to download potentially unwanted programs (PUPs),[1] malware, or both.

Distribution methods

Unauthorized streaming platforms, which are filled with deceptive adverts and sneaky redirects, serve as a prime example. These platforms frequently have fake “Download” and “Play” buttons that cause new browser tabs to open.

Users who click the “Play” button on websites that offer free, illegal movie streaming may be taken to a page that looks like It's simple to see how someone can be duped into thinking they can watch the movie of their choice.

Choosing reputable streaming services like Netflix or Hulu, which charge a small monthly subscription cost but provide unrestricted access to a wide variety of content, is the better course of action. Additionally, use caution when clicking on unknown links and adverts, and only go to reputable websites.

What is adware?

Software that generates a higher volume of commercial content, such as pop-ups, ads, and redirects, is referred to as adware.[2] People frequently unintentionally download adware through freeware[3] distribution sites that include bundled apps in their installers in an effort to monetize user involvement.

It is advised to always download software from official online stores and developer websites to protect against adware. Choose the “Custom” or “Advanced” installation options when installing software, carefully read the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use agreements, and perform the essential step of evaluating the file list and unchecking any boxes next to unrelated apps to avoid their installation.

How to prevent from getting adware

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.
