Fibeae.com redirect removal instructions

What is fibeae.com?

Like most rogue websites (such as cpamatik.com, coonews.pro, sitionne.pro, etc.), fibeae.com causes redirects to other untrustworthy and/or potentially malicious sites. Users typically arrive at rogue websites such as fibeae.com inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that infiltrate systems without users' knowledge, cause redirects, deliver intrusive ads, and record user-system information.

fibeae.com pop-up

Once a potentially unwanted application has infiltrated the system, it forces browsers to open a new tab/window and redirects users to fibeae.com, which then causes even more (about 2-3) redirects to other untrustworthy sites that might be malicious and could infiltrate computers with high-risk infections. Furthermore, as mentioned above, PUAs tend to deliver intrusive advertisements (usually coupons, surveys, banners, pop-ups, etc.) that are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and conceal underlying content. These ads diminish the browsing experience, can lead to untrustworthy websites or execute scripts designed to download and install potentially unwanted applications. Furthermore, many PUAs gather data such as IP addresses, keystrokes, geo-locations, URLs of visited websites, pages viewed, and so on. Later, PUAs developers generate revenue by sharing this collected data with third parties (potentially cyber criminals). Furthermore, some of the collected data might consist of personal or sensitive information. By misusing this data, developers (or third parties) cause privacy issues or even identity theft. Some users might experience reduced computer performance, since many PUAs are capable of running background tasks such as cryptocurrency mining. We strongly recommend that you uninstall installed PUAs immediately.

There are countless potentially unwanted applications of this type, however, they are all designed to generate revenue by performing most of the actions described above. Few PUAs deliver the functionality promised or provide any other real value.

How did adware install on my computer?

Some potentially unwanted applications of this type can be downloaded from official websites, but they are mostly installed without users' knowledge. This usually happens when users click intrusive ads or install software. Software developers often use the "bundling" method", a deceptive marketing technique used to install potentially unwanted applications together with regular software that users download from the Internet. As a rule, information about the existence of bundled apps is not properly disclosed - PUAs are hidden within "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar options/settings of the installation processes. Furthermore, many users often skip installation steps without checking these settings, and PUAs are then installed.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent installation of potentially unwanted applications, download software using official/trustworthy websites and not third party downloaders, installers, or torrents. Check all "Custom", "Advanced" and other options when installing software, especially if the software is free. Opt-out of (or deselect) all included (and potentially unwanted) applications, and only then proceed to the next step or finish the entire installation process. Bear in mind that some ads, especially those displayed on untrustworthy websites, might redirect users to potentially malicious or suspicious websites (such as gambling, adult dating, pornography, etc.). If this happens, close the website immediately and check your browser for any unwanted/unknown extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons, and remove them. Also apply this to the programs installed on your computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
