Search.easyinterestsaccess.com Redirect

search.easyinterestsaccess.com redirect removal instructions

What is search.easyinterestsaccess.com?

Easy Interests Access is a deceptive application that supposedly allows access to popular social networks (Instagram, Pinterest, etc.), and enhances the Internet search experience by generating improved results. These claims often trick users into believing that Easy Interests Access is legitimate and useful, however, this app is categorized as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a browser hijacker. There are three main reasons for these negative associations: 1) installation without users' consent; 2) stealth modification of web browser settings, and; 3) tracking of Internet browsing activity.


search.easyinterestsaccess.com browser hijacker

Following infiltration, Easy Interests Access hijacks Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, assigning the new tab URL/default search engine/homepage options to search.easyinterestsaccess.com. These changes may not seem significant, however, users are unable to revert them. Be aware that Easy Interests Access reassigns the aforementioned settings when attempts are made to change them. Therefore, returning browsers to their previous states becomes impossible and users continually encounter unwanted redirects to search.easyinterestsaccess.com, thus significantly diminishing the web browsing experience. Furthermore, Easy Interests Access continually gathers various information that might be personally identifiable (for example, IP addresses, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, etc.) Developers of Easy Interests Access share this information with cooperating third party companies (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing personal details. Therefore, the presence of a data-tracking app such as Easy Interests Access might result in serious privacy issues or even identity theft. You are strongly advised to eliminate this browser hijacker immediately.

There are dozens of potentially unwanted programs identical to Easy Interests Access including, for example, Easy Sports AccessEasy Radio AccessWeather Forecast Alerts, and Easy Transit Guide. Note that these applications offer different functionality, however, all have identical behavior. Apps such as Easy Interests Access are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than providing any value for regular users, browser-hijacking apps cause unwanted redirects (thereby generating traffic for various websites) and collect personally identifiable information (which is later sold to third parties).

How did search.easyinterestsaccess.com install on my computer?

Easy Interests Access is distributed via an official download website, and by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Therefore, Easy Interests Access often infiltrates systems without users' consent. Bundling is stealth installation of third party software with regular applications. Developers know that users often rush when downloading/installing software and skip steps. Therefore, bundled programs are concealed. Rushing often leads to inadvertent installation of potentially unwanted programs including Easy Interests Access.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent this situation be cautious when downloading and installing software. Select the "Custom/Advanced" settings and carefully analyze each step. Furthermore, decline offers to download/install additional applications and cancel those already included. The key to computer safety is caution.

Terrific Shopper Adware

Terrific Shopper removal instructions

What is Terrific Shopper?

Terrific Shopper is a deceptive application identical to Torpedo Deals that claims to save time and money by providing coupons and notifications of special deals/discounts available on various e-shops. In this way, Terrific Shopper attempts to give the impression of legitimacy, however, this app usually infiltrates systems without permission. Furthermore, it continually delivers intrusive advertisements and gathers various user/system information. For these reasons, Terrific Shopper is classed as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware.


Terrific Shopper adware

Following infiltration, Terrific Shopper delivers pop-up, coupon, banner, and other similar ads. To achieve this, developers employ a "virtual layer" - a tool that enables placement of third party graphical content on any site. The displayed ads often conceal underlying content of visited websites. In addition, some redirect to malicious websites - even accidental clicks can result in high-risk adware or malware infections. By delivering content-concealing advertisements, Terrific Shopper significantly diminishes the Internet browsing experience. In addition, Terrific Shopper gathers URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and other similar information relating to web browsing activity. There is a high probability that this collected information will contain personal details that developers share with cooperating third parties (who misuse personal details to generate revenue). The presence of an information-tracking app can result in serious privacy issues or even identity theft. You are strongly advised to uninstall this potentially unwanted program.

Terrific Shopper is similar to Coupon TimePrice-HeroMute Tabs Button, and dozens of other adware-type applications. All offer various 'useful features', however, that PUPs such as Terrific Shopper are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than providing any value for regular users, adware-type applications deliver intrusive online advertisements (via the "Pay Per Click" [PPC] advertising model) and collect personally identifiable information (which is later sold to third parties).

How did Terrific Shopper install on my computer?

This PUP is free for anyone to download on its official website, however, developers also distribute it by employing a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Therefore, users often install Terrific Shopper inadvertently, without their consent. Bundling is stealth installation of third party applications with regular software. Developers hide bundled programs within the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings of the download/installation processes. Rushing these procedures and skipping steps often leads to inadvertent installation of rogue apps.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent system infiltration by PUPs, be very cautious during the download/installation processes. Select the "Custom/Advanced" settings and closely analyze each step. In addition, decline offers to download/install additional applications an cancel those already included. The key to computer safety is caution.
