mybestmv.com redirect removal instructions
What is mybestmv.com?
mybestmv.com is a rogue website designed to cause redirects to other dubious sites. It is virtually identical to notifychheck.com, servedbytrackingdesk.com, notification-browser.tools, and many others. Generally, users visit mybestmv.com inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or intrusive advertisements displayed on untrustworthy sites. Research shows that PUAs typically infiltrate systems without permission and, cause redirects, record user-system information, and deliver intrusive advertisements.
After successful infiltration, PUAs open new browser tabs/windows and cause redirects to mybestmv.com. Immediately after visiting this site, users encounter a number of additional redirects to other dubious sites, at least one of which is likely to contain malicious content. Therefore, redirects to and from mybestmv.com can lead to various system infections. Potentially unwanted applications display intrusive advertisements that include coupons, banners, pop-ups, etc. These typically redirect to dubious sites and might even run scripts that download/install malware. Therefore, clicking them can also result in malware infiltration. Note that intrusive ads are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. In this way, they conceal underlying content, significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Potentially unwanted applications are also notorious for information tracking. These apps typically record IP addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, and other similar data relating to browsing habits. The data usually includes personal details that developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who generate revenue by misusing private information. Therefore, data tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you uninstall all potentially unwanted applications immediately.

Hundreds of potentially unwanted applications exist online, all of which are virtually identical. By offering "useful features", they attempt to give the impression of legitimacy and trick users to install. In fact, few provide the functions promised. Most have just one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than giving any real value for regular users, these apps cause unwanted redirects, deliver advertisements, and gather information. This diminishes the browsing experience and poses a direct threat to your privacy and browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some unwanted applications have official download websites, however, most are proliferated using intrusive advertisements and "bundling" (stealth installation of third party apps with regular software). Developers are aware that users often rush download/installation processes and skip steps. Therefore, they hide "bundled" apps within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. Furthermore, many users rush these procedures and skip steps. In addition, they click various advertisements without understanding the possible consequences. This behavior leads to inadvertent installation of potentially unwanted apps.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Lack of knowledge and careless behavior are the main reasons for computer infections. The key to safety is caution. Therefore, pay close attention when browsing the internet and downloading/installing software. Remember that intrusive advertisements usually seem legitimate, since developers invest time and money into their design, however, most lead to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and other untrustworthy sites. If you experience these redirects/ads, eliminate all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins. Furthermore, select "Custom/Advanced" settings and analyze each window of the download/installation dialogs. Deselect additionally-included programs and decline offers to download/install them. You are advised to download apps from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party download/installation tools are often monetized by promoting ("bundling") unwanted apps. Therefore, these tools should not be used. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
