blogsfeed.info redirect removal instructions
What is blogsfeed.info?
blogsfeed.info one of many rogue websites (virtually identical to push-checking.com, hajoopteg.com, lythenheckwo.info, and many more) designed to cause redirects to untrustworthy and potentially malicious websites or display dubious content. Most users arrive at blogsfeed.info inadvertently - they are redirected by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). These programs are usually installed unintentionally without users' consent. In addition to redirects, PUAs deliver intrusive ads and collect data.
Potentially unwanted applications regularly force browsers to open new windows or tabs and redirect users to the blogsfeed.info rogue website, which then causes even more (typically 2-3) redirects to other untrustworthy sites or displays dubious content. The way in which it operates depends on the visitor's geolocation. Redirects to dubious pages might result in computer infections. Furthermore, most PUAs record data such as IP addresses, URLs of visited websites, geolocations, entered search queries, etc. PUA developers regularly share the data with third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. This can lead to privacy, browsing safety issues or even identity theft. When installed, many PUAs deliver intrusive ads (coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys, and so on) displayed via tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. In summary, these ads conceal underlying content of visited websites. When clicked, they often cause redirects to untrustworthy websites or even execute scripts designed to download and install other unwanted apps. Therefore, remove all PUAs immediately.

There are many (virtually identical) PUAs on the Internet. Developers who create these apps generally offer potential users 'useful' tools and features, however, these PUAs are used only to generate revenue, rather than delivering any real value for regular users. Furthermore, when installed, they pose a direct threat to online privacy and internet browsing safety.

How did adware install on my computer?
People rarely download unwanted apps of this kind intentionally. Generally, they are installed when they click intrusive advertisements that download and install PUAs. These are usually displayed on dubious, untrustworthy websites. Another way to distribute these apps is using the "bundling" method. Developers employ this method to trick people into downloading and installing unwanted apps together with other, voluntarily downloaded and installed, software. They achieve this by hiding information regarding the inclusion (bundling) of PUAs in download or installation setups such as "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar sections. To achieve this, however, users must leave these setting unchanged or even unchecked.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Software should be downloaded using official websites. Other sources such as Peer-to-Peer networks, unofficial websites, third party downloaders, and other such tools should not be trusted. Installation should be handled correctly, especially if the downloaded software is free. Check "Custom", "Advanced", and other settings when installing or downloading software. Dismiss offers to install/download unwanted apps. Do not click advertisements that occur on dubious websites, since they often cause redirects to other untrustworthy sites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and so on) or lead to unwanted downloads or installations. If you experience these ads on visited websites, or unwanted redirects happen regularly, this is probably due to unwanted apps installed on your system. In this case, check installed extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins on your browser and uninstall all unwanted, unknown entries immediately. Additionally, uninstall unwanted programs from the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
