Yourmobile2018.com redirect removal instructions
What is yourmobile2018.com?
yourmobile2018.com is identical to 1bcde.com, ilowcost.ru, audienceline.com, and many other rogue websites that cause unwanted redirects to various other untrustworthy sites. Users often visit yourmobile2018.com inadvertently - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). In most cases, PUPs are installed inadvertently. In addition to unwanted redirects, they deliver intrusive ads, collect information, and misuse computer resources.
Once the potentially unwanted program is installed, it opens a new browser tab or window and redirects users to yourmobile2018.com, which then causes additional (about 2-3) redirects to other untrustworthy websites. It is very likely that one of these sites will contain malicious content and cause high-risk computer infections. Furthermore, potentially unwanted programs collect user information such as IP addresses, search queries, keystrokes, visited websites, geo-locations, etc. It is possible that some of the collected data will contain sensitive or personally-identifiable information. This data is shared with third parties (cyber criminals) and used to generate revenue. As a result, users might encounter privacy issues or even identity theft. Furthermore, PUPs deliver intrusive ads (coupons, pop-ups, surveys, banners etc.), that, once clicked, redirect to untrustworthy (potentially, malicious) websites or even execute scripts that download and install potentially unwanted programs. Furthermore, intrusive ads delivered by PUPs are often displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site (thereby concealing underlying content). Some potentially unwanted programs run background tasks and affect computer performance. If yourmobile2018.com is visited on an iPhone, it displays a fake pop-up message that is used to trick users into downloading a Defunel VPS application.

There are many potentially unwanted programs that supposedly deliver "useful" tools or provide other value, however, they are designed only to generate revenue by delivering intrusive advertisements, causing unwanted redirects, and gathering (and sharing) information. Having a potentially unwanted program of this type installed on your computer poses a direct threat to your privacy and browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Potentially unwanted programs can be downloaded and installed from official websites, however, research shows that most users install them through intrusive ads or when software developers use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Bundling is used to stealthily install PUPs together with regular software. These installations are often not properly disclosed, and PUPs are hidden in "Custom", "Advanced", and other settings of the installation process. It is very convenient for PUPs developers to have their software bundled with other software, since most users skip installation steps without carefully studying them.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
You are strongly advised to download software from official and trustworthy websites/sources only. Avoid using third party software downloaders/installers or torrents. Many third party downloaders are monetized by promoting PUPs. Furthermore, be patient when installing software and analyze each installation step carefully by checking all available "Custom", "Advanced", and other settings. We also advise you to avoid clicking on intrusive ads - developers (potentially cyber criminals) invest time and money in their design and they often appear legitimate. Once clicked, however, they can redirect users to gambling, pornography, adult dating, and other similar websites. If an ad causes this type of redirect, check for unwanted extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons installed on the default browser. The same applies to programs installed on the computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

Commonly, adware or potentially unwanted applications infiltrate Internet browsers through free software downloads. Note that the safest source for downloading free software is via developers' websites only. To avoid installation of adware, be very attentive when downloading and installing free software. When installing previously-downloaded free programs, choose the custom or advanced installation options – this step will reveal any potentially unwanted applications listed for installation together with your chosen free program.
