Ketintontrat[.]info redirect removal instructions
What is ketintontrat[.]info?
ketintontrat[.]info is one of many rogue websites on the internet. This site is similar to hundreds of other pages of this type such as maranhesduve[.]club, undrabbifor[.]info, and tontritrattof[.]info. When visited, it causes redirects to several untrustworthy websites or displays dubious content. Most people do not visit ketintontrat[.]info intentionally - they are generally redirected to it by potentially unwanted apps (PUAs) that are installed on their browsers or computers. Furthermore, PUAs often gather information and display intrusive ads.
The installed PUA regularly opens ketintontrat[.]info in a new browser window or tab. It then displays dubious content or causers about two or three redirects to other untrustworthy and potentially malicious pages. The way ketintontrat[.]info operates depends on the visitor's geolocation. Furthermore, most apps of type record browsing-related data such as geolocations, URLs of visited websites, entered search queries, IP addresses, and sometimes personal details. Developers of these apps share the data with other parties who misuse it to generate revenue. Some of these parties might be cyber criminals. In addition, many PUAs feed users with pop-up ads, coupons, banners, surveys, and so on. Being forced to see intrusive advertisements can be annoying. Furthermore, clicking them usually leads to untrustworthy websites. In some cases, clicking them executes scripts designed to download and install unwanted applications, some of which could be malicious programs. In summary, PUAs might cause problems relating to users' browsing safety and privacy, and some people might have their identities stolen. All installed unwanted apps should be removed (uninstalled) immediately.

Most PUAs have one main purpose: to generate revenue for developers and other parties by collecting information, delivering intrusive ads, and causing unwanted redirects. Developers often present these potentially unwanted apps as "useful" tools, however, few of these applications deliver the functionality promised or give any other value for regular users.
How did adware install on my computer?
Potentially unwanted applications are usually downloaded and installed through clicked intrusive ads or when they are bundled with other, regular downloaded/installed software. "Bundling" is a deceptive marketing method that developers use to trick people into downloading/installing PUAs with other software. Typically, they hide these extra apps in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings, options of the download or installation set-ups. They do not disclose information regarding the bundling of these PUAs. In most cases, however, skipping download/installation steps without checking the settings/options causes download and installation of potentially unwanted applications.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Download software from official/trustworthy sources and avoid using third party software downloaders/installers, unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks such as torrent clients, eMule, and other such tools. Do not skip software download/installation steps, check all available "Custom", "Advanced", and other settings/options, and deselect offers to download or install unwanted apps. Intrusive ads displayed on dubious pages may seem legitimate, however, if clicked, they usually redirect to untrustworthy websites such as gambling, pornography, adult dating, and so on. If ads and unwanted redirects are a regular problem, check installed programs on your computer/operating system and extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins on your browser. Remove all unwanted/suspicious programs (apps) immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
