Mobsuite.site redirect removal instructions
What is mobsuite.site?
mobsuite.site is a rogue site virtually identical to onclickbright.com, pttsite.com, obeyter.com, and many others. It redirects users to various other deceptive (potentially, malicious) websites. Research shows that, in most cases, users visit mobsuite.site inadvertently - they are redirected by intrusive advertisements (displayed by other rogue sites) or potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) that infiltrate systems without consent. As well as causing redirects, potentially unwanted programs deliver intrusive advertisements and gather sensitive data.
Immediately after infiltration, PUPs open new browser tabs/windows and redirect to mobsuite.site, which in turn redirects users to a number (typically 2-3) of other rogue sites. At least one of these sites is likely to contain malicious content. Therefore, redirects to and from mobsuite.site might lead to computer infections. Intrusive advertisements also redirect to malicious websites. Therefore, even a single click can result in high-risk infections. Be aware that intrusive advertisements are delivered using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any visited website. Therefore, coupons, banners, pop-ups, and other displayed ads conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Be aware that potentially unwanted programs are designed to gather Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, queries entered into search engines, keystrokes, geo-locations, and other information that typically includes personal details. This data is shared with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing private information. Therefore, the presence of data-tracking app(s) can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. We strongly advise you to uninstall all potentially unwanted programs immediately.

There are hundreds of potentially unwanted programs, all of which are virtually identical. They falsely promises to enable "useful functionality", however, these claims are merely attempts to give the impression of legitimacy. The only purpose of all potentially unwanted programs is to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than enabling any of the functions promised, these programs cause redirects, deliver intrusive ads, and gather sensitive information, thereby posing a direct threat to your privacy and web browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Although some PUPs have official download websites, most infiltrate systems without permission due to the lack of knowledge and careless behavior of many users. Potentially unwanted programs are distributed using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling", and intrusive advertisements. Developers hide "bundled" programs within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. They do not disclose these installations properly. Furthermore, many users skip download/installation steps and click various advertisements. In doing so, they expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To prevent this situation, be very cautious when downloading/installing software and browsing the Internet. Carefully analyze each window of the download/installation dialogs using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. Opt-out of all additionally-included programs and decline offers to download/install them. Software should be downloaded from official sources only, using direct download links. Most third party downloaders/installers are monetized by promoting PUPs, and thus these tools should never be used. Bear in mind that intrusive advertisements often seem legitimate, but once clicked, redirect to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and other dubious websites. If you experience these redirects, immediately eliminate all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins. The key to computer safety is caution.
