Quite often rogue and other untrustworthy websites get opened by PUAs that are installed on user's computer/operating system or browser. Apps of this type cause unwanted redirects, serve intrusive, deceptive ads and gather various data. As a rule, they are advertised as useful but in reality they are designed to serve one purpose: to generate revenue for their developers. In other words, they do not deliver any value for their users.

How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?

Most PUAs are distributed through a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Typically, its developers who use it. They use it to trick people into downloading and installing PUAs within other, wanted (intentionally downloaded/installed) software. They hide PUAs/information about them in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings/options of download/installation setups. Users who steps of setups without carefully analyzing them often install PUAs without being aware of that. In other cases unwanted downloads/installations happen when clicked deceptive ads execute scripts designed to download and install PUAs.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To avoid having unwanted applications installed, we recommend to download and install software with care. Do not download (or install) it from unofficial/untrustworthy websites, using Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule and so on, various third party downloaders/installers etc. The safest download sources are official pages and direct download links. Furthermore, download/install software properly. Check what are "Custom", "Advanced" settings of any setup and opt-out bundled potentially unwanted apps. Note, intrusive ads cannot be trusted. Most of them are designed to redirect users to various untrustworthy websites, usually related to gambling, pornography, adult dating and so on. If you encounter such redirects often or unwanted ads appear regularly, then we recommend to uninstall all unwanted/unknown applications such as plug-ins, extensions or add-ons from a browser and programs from the operating system. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for macOS to automatically eliminate them.
