Nanoadexchange[.]com redirect removal instructions

What is nanoadexchange[.]com?

nanoadexchange[.]com is a URL address used by various rogue advertising networks, which typically employ deceptive applications and websites. Therefore, users are redirected to this website when their computers are infected with potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) or adware, or when they visit dubious websites. Note that nanoadexchange[.]com also redirects to other dubious websites.

nanoadexchange[.]com pop-up redirects

This URL works essentially such as a mediator. Potentially unwanted applications and intrusive advertisements redirect users to nanoadexchange[.]com, which then redirects them elsewhere. Note that the website to which the user is redirected depends on the system geolocation, which is determined by checking the IP address. In any case, users might end up visiting sites that deliver malicious content and encourage visitors to download certain content (e.g., fake Adobe Flash Player updaters, which inject unwanted applications into the system). Therefore, visiting this URL can lead to various system infections. Note that PUAs are also known for information tracking. The list of data collected by these apps usually includes (but is not limited to) IP addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, and similar. The data is likely to contain personal details that developers share with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. Therefore, the presence of information-tracking applications might lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. If you encounter redirects to nanoadexchange[.]com, remove all suspicious applications/browser plug-ins and never return to this site.

There are hundreds of PUAs that deliver intrusive advertisements, all of which are very similar. The list of examples includes Ad Guardian, MessengerLite, BWplayer, and many others. Note that most offer "useful functionality", however, these applications have just one purpose: to generate revenue for the developers. Rather than giving any real value for regular users, adware-type apps deliver advertisements and gather information.

How did adware install on my computer?

Some PUAs have official download/promotion websites, however, most are proliferated using intrusive advertisements and a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Intrusive advertisements redirect users to dubious websites and run scripts that stealthily download/install other PUAs. "Bundling" is stealth installation of third party applications together with regular software. "Bundled" applications are typically hidden behind "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. The main issue here is that users often click advertisements and skip steps. In doing so, they expose their systems to risk of various infections, which often leads to inadvertent installation of third party applications.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To prevent system infiltration by PUAs, be very cautious when browsing the Internet and downloading/installing software. Bear in mind that intrusive advertisements usually seem legitimate, however, once clicked, they redirect to dubious websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and similar). If you experience these ads/redirects, eliminate all suspicious applications and browser plug-ins. Furthermore, carefully analyze each window of the download/installation dialogs using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings. Opt-out of all additionally-included programs and decline offers to download/install them. Download programs from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party downloaders/installers should never be used, since developers often monetize them using the "bundling" method. The key to computer safety is caution. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
