Cpi-offers.com redirect removal instructions

What is cpi-offers.com?

cpi-offers.com is another rogue website virtually identical to many others of this type including bluegrated.com, ser1es.com, and sandsitedrhec.club. The main purpose of this website is to redirect visitors to dubious/untrustworthy sites and display dubious content. Visitors often arrive at cpi-offers.com inadvertently - they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Most users install these apps accidentally. PUAs force users to visit rogue websites such as cpi-offers.com and feed them with various advertisements and record browsing-related information.

cpi-offers.com pop-up

Having a potentially unwanted app of this type installed will result in redirects to cpi-offers.com. PUAs force browsers to randomly open new tabs or windows. This website then displays deceptive content or causes about 2-3 redirects to other untrustworthy sites. Its actions depend on the visitor's geo-location. In any case, redirects to and from cpi-offers.com can lead to computer infections, and some of the visited websites (as well as cpi-offers.com itself) might contain malicious content (or lead to it). Furthermore, these PUAs serve users with annoying, intrusive ads such as coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and so on. It is impossible to avoid them, since they are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, they conceal underlying content of any visited website. When clicked, the ads usually cause redirects to untrustworthy (potentially, malicious) websites or execute scripts designed to download/install other unwanted apps that might be malicious. Information tracking is another problem that users might experience due to PUAs. These apps often collect data relating to users' browsing activity such as IP addresses, URLs of visited websites, search queries, geo-locations, and so on. Furthermore, some PUAs gather personal (sensitive) information. Developers share the data with third parties (often cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. Remove all PUAs immediately, since their presence can cause problems relating to browsing safety, privacy, and even identity theft.

Potentially unwanted apps of this type are usually promoted in the same way: developers offer various "useful" tools, features etc., making them seem like legitimate apps. In fact, the main aim is to trick users into downloading and installing this rogue software so that developers can use it to generate revenue. Few apps deliver any of the functionality promised or provide any other value.

How did adware install on my computer?

In some cases, potentially unwanted applications can be downloaded from their websites, however, they usually infiltrate systems without users' knowledge. Developers promote PUAs using intrusive advertisements or a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". They use this method to trick users into installing unwanted apps together with other software. Developers hide "bundled" (potentially unwanted) apps within "Custom", "Advanced" options/settings or other sections of the download/installation processes - they do not properly disclose information regarding the inclusion of these apps. In summary, clicking advertisements and skipping download or installation steps leads to inadvertent/unintentional installation of potentially unwanted applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Do not download software from unofficial/untrustworthy websites, using third party software downloaders, installers or other such tools. Use only official and trustworthy websites and direct links. Install software carefully - analyze each installation step by checking "Advanced", "Custom" and other similar settings. See if there are any offers to install (download) unwanted apps - if so, deselect them. Avoid clicking on various ads, especially intrusive ads or those displayed on dubious websites. Intrusive ads may seem legitimate, however, once clicked, they redirect users to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and other untrustworthy, deceptive websites. If you encounter these redirects or ads, check your browser and uninstall all dubious extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons. Also ensure that there are no unwanted 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.
