Free-movies.xxg23lthhh.top redirect removal instructions
What is free-movies.xxg23lthhh.top?
Free-movies.xxg23lthhh.top is just another rogue website (similar to mysuperapps.online, newstarads.com, redirectal.com and hundreds of others) designed to redirect its visitors to various untrustworthy websites. Most users end up visiting free-movies.xxg23lthhh.top unwillingly, it is potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that are responsible for it. Most of the times users install these PUAs unintentionally. Most PUAs are designed to cause redirects, deliver ads and collect data.
When installed, PUAs force web browsers to open a new tab or window that leads users to free-movies.xxg23lthhh.top rogue website. Once visited this website causes additional redirects to other (about two or three) untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites. It is very likely that at least one of them will actually contain malware which might cause various high-risk computer infections. Furthermore, most PUAs are known for their ability to collect various data, such as IP addresses, search queries, keystrokes, URLs of visited websites, geo-locations and other data. There is always a possibility that it will collect not only the mentioned data, but some personal or sensitive information as well. Once collected, this data usually is shared with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who often misuse it to generate revenue. One more downside of PUAs is that they feed user with various intrusive advertisements (coupons, banners, surveys etc.) that are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party content. Placed content (intrusive ads) can be very annoying, since it often conceals the contents of any visited website. Besides, by clicking these ads users risk to be redirected to some untrustworthy website or to execute a script that might download other potentially unwanted applications (or malware). We strongly advise to do not keep such applications installed and to eliminate them immediately.
It is very common that potentially unwanted applications of this type share the same purposes - to generate revenue by delivering intrusive ads, causing unwanted redirects and tracking information. Many users are being tricked into downloading them when PUAs developers promise to provide users with various "useful" tools, features etc. However, only a small part of PUAs are actually providing the promised functionalities. Most of the times these applications only cause problems related to privacy or browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Quite many potentially unwanted applications can be downloaded from their official websites, however, more often PUAs get installed through clicked intrusive ads or when software developers use a "bundling" method, a deceptive marketing method used to install PUAs together with other regular software in a stealthy way. Software developers avoid disclosing information about bundled apps properly and hide PUAs in "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings/options of the installation process. Careless behaviour (such as rushing the installation steps by skipping its steps) is the most common reason behind unintentional installations of potentially unwanted applications of any kind.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Use only official/trustworthy websites (or other sources) and direct links when downloading software. Avoid using third party software downloaders/installers and torrents for that. Never forget to check the "Advanced", "Custom" and other options and settings of the installation process and deselect any additional applications (such as PUAs). Once you are done with that, you can proceed to the next step or finish the installation. Keep in mind that malicious (or other untrustworthy) ads often look appropriate, however, once clicked they often redirect users to some untrustworthy websites (such as gambling, pornography, adult dating etc.). If you happen to encounter any of these ads that constantly redirect you to suspicious websites, check what are the installed plug-ins, add-ons and extensions on your browser, or programs installed on your computer and uninstall unwanted/unknown entries as soon as possible. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
