What is deloplen.com?
Similar to checkpost.space, pushmenews.com, lodder.club, and many others, deloplen.com is a rogue website designed to deliver dubious content and cause redirects. As with the aforementioned websites, users often visit deloplen.com inadvertently.
They are redirected by intrusive advertisements (displayed on other rogue sites) and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), which usually infiltrate computers without permission. In addition to causing redirects, PUAs generate intrusive advertisements and gather information relating to internet browsing habits.
Following infiltration, potentially unwanted applications continually force-open new browser tabs or windows and redirect users to deloplen.com. Once visited, this website checks the user's internet Protocol (IP) address to determine the geolocation and ascertain whether to display certain content or to redirect the user even further (deloplen.com sometimes does both).
In any case, users might encounter malicious content. Thus, redirects to and from deloplen.com might lead to various system infections. PUAs also deliver various intrusive ads such as banners, pop-ups, coupons, and similar.
These might also redirect to malicious websites and even run scripts designed to download/install other potentially unwanted/malicious applications. Therefore, clicking them can also result in computer infections. Intrusive ads are delivered using tools that enable placement third party of graphical content on any site.
Therefore, they often conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Potentially unwanted applications are also notorious for data tracking. The list of collected data types usually includes IP addresses, web search queries, URLs visited, pages viewed, and other similar data.
Once gathered, this information is shared with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. Therefore, the presence of data-tracking apps can lead to privacy issues. We strongly recommend that you eliminate all potentially unwanted applications immediately.

The internet is full of potentially unwanted applications, all of which are very similar. By offering many "useful features", these applications attempt to give the impression of legitimacy, however, the only purpose of all PUAs is to generate revenue for the developers.
They typically deliver no real value for regular users. These programs merely cause unwanted redirects, deliver intrusive, and gather information, thereby diminishing the browsing experience and posing a significant threat to your privacy and browsing safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some potentially unwanted applications have official download websites, however, most are proliferated using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling" and intrusive advertisements. "Bundling" is essentially stealth installation of third party applications together with regular software.
Developers hide "bundled" apps behind "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. Furthermore, many users often click advertisements and rush download/installation processes by skipping steps.
This behavior leads to inadvertent installation of rogue applications. In this way, users expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
There are two simple steps you should take to prevent this situation. Firstly, bear in mind that intrusive advertisements usually seem legitimate. Once clicked, however, they redirect to dubious websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, etc.). If you encounter these ads/redirects frequently, immediately remove all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins.
Furthermore, download your programs from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party downloaders/installers often include rogue apps, and thus these tools should never be used. Carefully study each download/installation step, opt-out of all additionally-included applications, and decline offers to download/install them.
The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior. The key to safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
