Mobnootiffy.com redirect removal instructions
What is mobnootiffy.com?
Virtually similar or identical to supervid.pro, news-io.com, newsforyou.pro, and many others, mobnootiffy.com is a rogue website that redirects visitors to other potentially malicious, untrustworthy sites or displays dubious content. In most cases, users arrive at this website unintentionally, since they are redirected to it by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Typically, PUAs are stealthily installed and go on to cause redirects, deliver intrusive ads, and collect information.
Once installed, PUAs affect browsers by randomly opening new tabs or windows within them and causing redirects to mobnootiffy.com. As a result, users are forced to visit even more (about 2-3) dubious websites that might contain malicious content. Alternatively, this website might display deceptive content. These actions depend on the visitor's location. Visiting these malicious websites can lead to various computer infections. Another negative aspect of unwanted apps is the intrusive ads they deploy: usually coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and others. These are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and conceal underlying content. Being continually fed with these ads can be annoying and diminish the browsing experience. Furthermore, when clicked, they often cause redirects to untrustworthy websites or run scripts designed to download/install more PUAs or even malicious software. In addition to delivering ads, potentially unwanted apps often gather information including IP addresses, geo-locations, keystrokes, search queries, URLs of visited websites, and so on. In some cases, they also collect personal/sensitive data. Developers misuse this information to generate revenue by sharing it with third parties (potentially cyber criminals who also use it to make money). Installed PUAs can thus cause various privacy issues, browsing safety problems, or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you uninstall all apps of this type immediately.
There are hundreds of virtually identical PUAs, all of which are designed with the same purpose: to generate revenue for their developers by delivering ads, causing redirects, and gathering data. Developers promote them as 'useful and legitimate' but they provide none of the functions promised.
How did adware install on my computer?
Most users install unwanted apps without their knowledge via intrusive ads or the "bundling" method, which is often used by developers. Bundling is used to trick people into installing third party applications together with regular, usually free or ad-supportive software. Developers do not disclose information regarding the presence of unwanted apps in installation or download set-ups. They hide them in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of software installation (or download) dialogs. In summary, clicking ads and skipping installation process steps leads to inadvertent installation of unwanted applications.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid unwanted installations (or downloads), download/install software and browse the web with care. Download apps (especially if they are free) using official/trustworthy sources and direct links. Avoid using third party software downloaders, installers, peer-to-peer networks (tools such as torrents, eMule and so on), and other sources of this type. Do not skip installation dialog steps, check "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options first. The same applies to checkboxes ticked by default. If you find any "special offers", tools or other additional software while installing software, deselect it, especially if you suspect that it is a potentially unwanted application. If you begin to encounter intrusive ads that lead you to suspicious websites (gambling, pornography, adult dating, and so on), check for unwanted extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons installed on your browser. Remove unwanted/suspicious entries immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
