Yourtuber.info is the adult-related site which can lead you to PUPs and malware 

Yourtuber.info website

Yourtuber.info is an adult-themed site which should be visited with carefulness as it keeps displaying numerous ads and links redirecting to potentially harmful content. After clicking on one of its links, it reroutes you to dating sites filled with even more ads. Beware that such redirects can expose you to potentially unwanted programs, e.g. an infamous MacKeeper and similar optimization tools promoting their full/paid versions. To sum up, while “Yourtuber.info virus” term is not accurate, it is not reported on VirusTotal,[ref en-3] you must visit this site only after you realize that you can bring issues to your computer.

Category PUP/adware/ad-supported site
Users in total Over 6000

Main dangers Being redirected to an infected site, being tricked into downloading PUP, revealing your personally identifiable information
Removal Get rid of the unwanted activity by eliminating malicious components from your web browser. Use Reimage for this task

All this commercial content displayed by Yourtuber.info appears with the only purpose – having users redirected to affiliated sites or sponsored content and generating revenue from clicks or views. While it is not illegal, the developers of such sites do not care about users' safeness. If you carelessly check third parties that they promote, you can easily find yourself on a malicious site.

Since Yourtuber.info is an active site, 2spyware researchers decided to check what is said in its Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. Unfortunately, no information, including the owner of this site and similar information is provided. The site is tempting its users with adult-related content and it seems that it is enough to catch their attention.

If such material has started showing up out of nowhere, it indicates the existence of Yourtuber.info-related add-on/extension/plugin on your machine. Since most of such components are spread via software bundles, you should think what freeware have you recently downloaded to your machine. It could be spotted in Task Manager[1] by checking the app's developer and installation time. Make sure you get rid of these entries that you can't remember downloading.

To remove Yourtuber.info virus from the system, you can alternatively run a full system scan with your security software. After that, bring your PC's settings to the previous ones by running Reimage. If any changes were made by the PUP, they will be eliminated with only one click.

Yourtuber.info is a suspicious app which can appear on the system as a bundle product

PUP's distribution is closely related to the freeware 

If bothered by Yourtuber.info ads, it might be that you allowed some site to send you notifications straight to your browser. Additionally, you could have added a potentially malicious add-on to your web browser which is now used to redirect users to sites like this one.

Don't be surprised because it is possible to download unwanted programs without any knowledge. Typically, this is implemented with the help of bundled software. If you are not familiar with this term, you should know that it means two different programs spreading around in one package. To prevent their infiltration, you must opt only for Custom/Advanced installation mode and then deselect all optional components.

Other precautionary measures that you should follow:

  • Stay away from suspicious links;
  • Delete spam without opening;
  • Decline offers to change your start page/default search engine/new tab url;
  • Always choose official software over unofficial/illegal offers.
