Rxlnd[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is rxlnd[.]com?
Similar to allowpush.club, check-out-this.site, exclusivenotifications.com, and others, rxlnd[.]com is a rogue website used to redirect visitors to other untrustworthy or malicious sites and proliferate dubious content. This website employs browser notifications, which, if allowed, begin an aggressive, intrusive advertisement campaign. Visitors to rxlnd[.]com rarely access the site willingly - they are redirected to it by other untrustworthy sites, suspicious ads, or by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications). PUAs are often installed inadvertently and can be responsible for unauthorized redirects, intrusive ad campaigns, and data gathering.
Promotion of rxlnd[.]com by unwanted applications works by forcefully opening new browser tabs/windows and redirecting users to this site. The rxlnd[.]com website bases its actions on users' geolocations, which it determines from their IP (Internet protocol) addresses. Depending on the geolocation, the site further redirects visitors to other compromised or malicious sites and/or begins proliferating dubious, even potentially dangerous content. Encounters with malicious content and probable malware (malicious software) are risks associated with visiting rxlnd[.]com. The same threat is posed by intrusive ads, which redirect users to untrustworthy sites and can execute scripts designed to automatically download/install unwanted applications. PUAs implement a wide variety of tools, which enable third party graphical content to be displayed on any site. These ads can be responsible for a diminished browsing experience - reduced browser performance and concealed web content (due to the aforementioned advertisements). Another trait of PUAs is data tracking, which cause a threat to users' privacy, identity, and system safety. These applications record IP addresses, browsing and search engine histories, and other browsing data. Also, personal details. This information is then resold to third parties - cyber criminals seeking to generate revenue. Therefore, uninstall all PUAs immediately upon detection.

PUAs are numerous and often use certain tactics to lure users into downloading/installing them. They tend to offer seemingly legitimate and useful features, however, once installed they deliver none of the promised properties. These applications cause redirects, deliver intrusive ads, and gather data. PUAs are simply used to generate profit at the expense of users' privacy and computer safety.
How did adware install on my computer?
PUAs usually infiltrate systems via installation packs/bundles. These unwanted applications are grouped with regular software and do not require explicit user permission to be installed onto their device. An opt-out is usually available, however, it is frequently hidden behind "Custom/Advanced" settings. Furthermore, many users rush the installation process, ignoring terms and possible settings, thereby allowing rogue applications to install onto their device. Unscrupulous developers are aware of this tendency and use PUAs to infiltrate. Unwanted applications can also proliferate via intrusive advertisements. In summary, PUAs redirect users to compromised and hazardous sites, deliver intrusive ads (pop-ups, banners, coupons, etc.) and gather data (browser and personal information). They are a significant safety risk and can even lead to identity theft.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Caution is key to computer safety. Use official and verified sources for all software downloads, preferably via direct download links. Do not use third party downloaders, as they expose users' devices to dubious and possibly malicious content. Be attentive while downloading and installing software. Check "Custom/Advanced" settings and opt-out of installing additional applications. Exercise caution when using the internet - do not click suspect ads and avoid untrustworthy sites. Intrusive ads are often successfully designed to seem legitimate, so as not to arouse suspicion. In fact, they can redirect to untrusted sites (e.g. pornographic, adult dating, gambling, etc.). If you experience these ads/redirects, remove any suspicious applications and browser plug-ins immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
