What is Dangerous Try To Get Access To Your Personal Logins?

"There was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins" is a deceptive error message displayed by a malicious website. Users often visit this site inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). These applications usually infiltrate systems without permission. As well as causing unwanted redirects, PUPs also deliver intrusive online advertisements and continually monitor users' Internet browsing activity.

"Dangerous Try To Get Access To Your Personal Logins" states that the system is infected and that personal information (logins, passwords, banking details, etc.) is at risk. It states that the malware must be removed immediately and users are encouraged to contact "certified technicians" via a telephone number ("+1 844 243-2014") provided. In addition, the website displays a screenshot of a fake anti-virus suite, which supposedly removes the malware, however, as mentioned above, "Dangerous Try To Get Access To Your Personal Logins" is fake - a mere scam. Cyber criminals attempt to scare and trick victims into calling 'technical support' and paying for services that are not required. Therefore, ignore this error message. You can remove it simply by closing the web browser. Be aware that PUPs employ a "virtual layer" to display pop-up, coupon, banner, and other similar ads. This enables placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, displayed ads often conceal underlying content, significantly diminishing the Internet browsing activity. In addition, they often redirect to malicious websites - clicking them is risky and can result in further computer infections. Another downside is data tracking. Research shows that potentially unwanted programs often gather IP addresses, Internet service providers, geo-locations, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, mouse/keyboard activity, and other similar information. There is a high probability that this collected information will include personal details that developers share with cooperating third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing private data. Therefore, the presence of data-tracking apps can result serious privacy issues or even identity theft. All potentially unwanted programs should be uninstalled immediately.

There are dozens of fake error messages displayed by various malicious websites. As with "Dangerous Try To Get Access To Your Personal Logins", pop-ups such as Microsoft Warning Alert, Microsoft Has Detected Some Suspicious Activity, and Warning Internet Security Breached, also claim that the system is infected or damaged in other similar ways. Be aware, however, that these error messages are also scams. Their only purpose is to trick victims into paying for services that are not required. Potentially unwanted programs are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. By offering various 'useful features', PUPs attempt to give the impression of legitimacy, however, rather than providing any of the functions promised, they cause unwanted redirects, collect personal information, and deliver intrusive ads.

How did adware install on my computer?

To proliferate potentially unwanted programs, developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" - stealth installation of third party apps with regular software. They hide bundled programs within the "Custom/Advanced" settings of the download or installation processes. Skipping this section often leads to inadvertent installation of bogus programs.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent system infiltration by PUPs, be cautious during the download and installation processes. Select the "Custom/Advanced" settings, carefully observe each step, and opt-out of all additionally-included apps. Furthermore, never allow set-ups to modify options irrelevant to the installation.
