Newsmode[.]me redirect removal instructions

What is newsmode[.]me?

There are many rogue websites similar to newsmode[.]me. Other examples include naneso[.]com, vakogid[.]com, and ciessimple[.]pro. Typically, these web pages cause unwanted redirects to untrustworthy, potentially malicious sites or display suspicious content. People do not generally visit sites such as newsmode[.]me intentionally - they are forced to open them by PUAs (potentially unwanted applications) installed on their browsers or operating systems. Most users download and install PUAs unintentionally. In addition to causing unwanted redirects, PUAs often display unwanted ads and gather information relating to users' browsing habits.

newsmode[.]me pop-up redirects

When the browser opens newsmode[.]me, this site presents visitors with dubious, deceptive content or redirects them to other (about 2-3) rogue websites. These might be used to trick visitors into installing dubious applications or malicious programs. It is not safe to visit pages opened through newsmode[.]me. Furthermore, installed PUAs feed users with ads such as coupons, banners, pop-ups, surveys, and so on. Frequently, people who click them are redirected to potentially malicious websites, or clicking allows the ads to run scripts that download/install unwanted, potentially malicious software. Developers also design PUAs to function as information tracking tools. When installed, they collect user/system details such as IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites and other, possibly sensitive information. The people responsible for PUAs (developers) share the data with other parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. These actions might lead to problems with privacy, browsing safety, and so on. Some of the details might also be used to steal users' identities. For these reasons, you are advised to uninstall all PUAs immediately.

There are countless PUAs, most of which are very similar. The same applies to web pages such as newsmode[.]me. Typically, unwanted apps generate revenue for their developers by collecting information, feeding users with intrusive ads, and causing unwanted redirects to dubious, potentially malicious websites. Rather that operating as advertised, PUAs simply cause problems. PUAs and sites such as newsmode[.]me should never be trusted.

How did adware install on my computer?

PUAs can sometimes be downloaded from 'official' websites, however, users generally download and install them inadvertently through clicked intrusive ads or together with other, regular software. To trick people into installing/downloading PUAs with other programs, developers add them into the download or installation set-ups of regular software and fail to disclose related information - they hide it in "Custom", "Advanced", and other similar settings. Users who leave the settings unchecked and unchanged often inadvertently give unwanted apps permission to be downloaded and/or installed.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

To avoid unwanted installations/downloads, download all programs and files from official, trustworthy websites and using direct download links. Do not trust other sources such as Peer-to-peer networks (torrent clients, eMule, and so on), third party downloaders, unofficial sites, or other similar sources. The same applies to third party software installers. Check options/settings such as "Advanced", "Custom", and so on (available in download or installation setups) and opt-out of offers to download or install additional, unwanted programs. Intrusive ads usually lead to dubious or even malicious websites. Ads displayed on web pages relating to gambling, adult dating, pornography, etc., should not be clicked. If the browser displays intrusive ads or causes unwanted redirects, remove all unknown or suspicious apps (extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins) and see if the problem persists. Additionally, remove programs of this type installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
