Trafficmarket.pro POP-UP Redirect

Also Known As: trafficmarket.pro pop-up

Trafficmarket.pro redirect removal instructions

What is trafficmarket.pro?

trafficmarket.pro is one of many rogue websites (including liverealdeals.com, flyrlk.com, cpm10.com, and so on) designed to redirect visitors to other untrustworthy/unreliable sites. In most cases, potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) force users to visit trafficmarket.pro against their will. The same applies to installation of PUAs. Furthermore, PUAs deliver intrusive advertisements and gather information.

trafficmarket.pro pop-up

Following infiltration, potentially unwanted applications force affected browsers to open new tabs/windows that redirect users to trafficmarket.pro. They are then redirected to even more (usually two or three) other untrustworthy sites. There is a high probability that one of these websites will contain malicious content that could infiltrate computers with high-risk infections. Another downside of PUAs is the intrusive ads they deliver. These are often coupons, banners, surveys, and pop-ups displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and conceal underlying content. Once clicked, they usually redirect to untrustworthy websites and sometimes execute scripts that download and install other potentially unwanted applications. Furthermore, many PUAs gather data such as IP addresses, keystrokes, search queries, URLs of visited websites, geo-locations, and so on. Some of the data might contain personal or sensitive details that PUAs developers sell or share to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) to generate revenue. These actions can lead to privacy/browsing safety issues or, even worse, cyber criminals might steal users' identities. You are strongly advised to eliminate these PUAs immediately.

Many potentially unwanted applications are very similar (or identical), and thus cause identical problems. PUAs developers offer "useful" features, but potentially unwanted applications of this type are designed only to generate revenue (by delivering advertisements, causing unwanted redirects, and collecting information). Having this rogue software installed will cause browsing safety and privacy problems, rather than provide any real value.

How did adware install on my computer?

Many potentially unwanted applications can be downloaded from their official websites, however, most users install them inadvertently. Applications of this type are often installed when software developers use the "bundling" method. "Bundling" is essentially stealth installation of third party applications with regular software that users download from the Internet. Software developers hide PUAs in "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar options/settings of the installation processes. Furthermore, many users skip installation steps without checking these settings, and thus PUAs are installed. In some cases, PUAs are installed through intrusive ads.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Install software with care. Do not skip installation steps without studying them carefully, especially if the software is free. Check the installation settings and options (including "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar settings). Opt-out of extra applications and only then finish the installation. Do not download software from untrustworthy/unofficial websites or use torrents. Use official and trustworthy sources only. Avoid clicking intrusive ads. If you happen to click an ad that causes a redirect to pornography, adult dating, gambling, or other untrustworthy/suspicious websites, close the site/s immediately and remove any unwanted or unknown extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins from your browser, or programs from your computer. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
