Newsmode[.]me redirect removal instructions
What is newsmode[.]me?
There are many rogue websites like newsmode[.]me, here are some more examples: naneso[.]com, vakogid[.]com and ciessimple[.]pro. Typically, these pages are designed to cause unwanted redirects to untrustworthy, potentially malicious sites or to display suspicious content. It is not common for people to visit pages like newsmode[.]me intentionally, most of the times they are forced to visit them by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications) that are installed on their browsers or operating systems. Most users download and install apps of this type unintentionally. In addition to causing undesired redirects most PUAs also display unwanted ads and gather information about user's browsing habits.
When a browser opens newsmode[.]me, this page either presents visitors with some questionable, deceptive content or redirects them to other (about 2-3) shady sites. Opened pages might be used to trick visitors into installing questionable applications or even malicious programs. Either way, it is not safe to visit pages opened through newsmode[.]me. Moreover, installed PUAs feed their users with a variety of ads like coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys and so on. Most of the times people who click these ads get redirected to potentially malicious websites or allow them to run scripts that download (or even install) unwanted, potentially malicious software. Quite often developers design PUAs to function as information tracking tools. It means that as long as they are installed, they collect details about users/systems such as IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites and other, possibly sensitive information. One way or another, people behind PUAs (their developers) share collected data with other parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. These actions might lead users to having problems with privacy, browsing safety and so on. Some of the details may be used to steal user's identity too. For these reasons it is recommended to uninstall all installed PUAs immediately.

There is an uncountable number of PUAs, most of them are very similar. The same can be said about pages like newsmode[.]me. Typically, unwanted apps are designed to generate revenue for their developers by collecting information, feeding users with intrusive ads and causing unwanted redirects to questionable, potentially malicious websites. Instead operating as their developers advertised them, PUAs cause various problems. Simply said, apps of this type (and pages like newsmode[.]me) should never be trusted.
How did adware install on my computer?
Sometimes these potentially unwanted apps can be downloaded from their supposedly official websites. nevertheless, more often than not users download and install them inadvertently: through clicked intrusive ads or together with some other, intentionally downloaded and/or installed software. To trick people into installing (or downloading) PUAs with other programs, developers add these apps into their download or installation setups. However, they do not disclose information about it properly and hide it in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings. Users who leave the aforementioned settings unchecked (and unchanged), unknowingly give unwanted apps a permission to be downloaded or/and installed by themselves.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid unwanted installations (and downloads) we recommend to download all programs and files from official, trustworthy websites and using direct download links. Any other sources like Peer-to-peer networks (torrent clients, eMule and so on), third party downloaders, unofficial sites and other similar sources should not be trusted. The same applies to third party software installers. Furthermore, it is important to check all options/settings (like "Advanced", "Custom" and so on) that are (if are) available in any download or installation setup and opt-out offers to download or install additional, unwanted programs. It is worth mentioning that intrusive ads usually lead to questionable or even malicious websites. Ads that are displayed on pages related to gambling, adult dating, pornography, etc., should not be clicked. If a browser displays intrusive ads or/and causes unwanted redirects too often, then we advise to remove all unknown or suspicious apps (extensions, add-ons or plug-ins) that are installed on it and see if the problem persists. Additionally, uninstalling programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system could be helpful too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
