Newpush.support redirect removal instructions
What is newpush.support?
newpush.support is one of many rogue websites, the number of which is growing daily. Examples of other virtually identical sites include bodelen.com, mobnootiffy.com, and lameterthenhep.info. The main goal of this website is to display dubious content or force visitors to open other dubious websites. Typically, people end up visiting newpush.support due to potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on their browsers or operating systems. PUAs are often installed inadvertently, force users to visit untrustworthy websites and feed them with intrusive ads, and collect data.
PUAs continually open new browser windows/tabs and, in this case, open the newpush.support website, which then displays dubious, deceptive content or causes redirects to other untrustworthy sites (usually two or three). The behaviour of this site depends on the visitor's location. Display of intrusive ads is another problem that occurs due to installed PUAs. This is annoying, since these ads are displayed using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site and conceal underlying content. Examples of ads displayed by PUAs include coupons, banners, surveys, and pop-ups. Furthermore, if clicked, they can open untrustworthy, potentially malicious websites or trigger scripts that download/install unwanted apps. PUAs also record information such as IP addresses, search queries, geo-locations, URLs of visited websites, and so on. They might also record personal/sensitive details. The data is continually shared with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse the details to generate revenue. Therefore, having PUAs installed can lead to problems relating to browsing safety, online privacy, or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you remove all unwanted apps immediately.
There are hundreds of potentially unwanted apps of this type on the internet. Most are promoted by offering "useful" tools, features, and so on, however, PUAs deliver none of the promised benefits and are designed only to generate revenue for the developers by delivering intrusive ads, causing unwanted redirects, and gathering user-system information. Few PUAs provide any real value.
How did adware install on my computer?
In some cases, potentially unwanted apps can be downloaded from their websites but most are installed through intrusive ads or together with regular software. To achieve this, software developers often use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" to trick people into installing potentially unwanted apps together with other programs by hiding them in "Custom"/"Advanced" settings of the installation/download set-ups. Furthermore, most people tend to skip installation/download steps without paying attention to the details (the included settings), thus allowing PUAs to be installed. This careless behaviour leads to system infections.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Be cautions while downloading or installing software, especially freeware. Untrustworthy sources such as third party software downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks, unofficial websites and other such tools should not be used. Download software using only official websites and direct links. Pay attention to all details of each download/installation - do not skip steps without first checking all available "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings. Decline offers to install unwanted software and only then finish the installation (or download) process. Avoid clicking intrusive ads. They may seem legitimate (cyber criminals invest time and money into ad design), however, once clicked, they can cause redirects to untrustworthy websites (adult dating, pornography, gambling, etc.). If you encounter these redirects, check installed extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins on your browser and programs on your computer. Uninstall all suspicious or unwanted entries immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
