Mirox22[.]biz redirect removal instructions
What is mirox22[.]biz?
Mirox22[.]biz is an address of a rogue page which, once visited, redirects visitors to other untrustworthy websites or displays dubious content. There are many other websites that operate like mirox22[.]biz, for example, piedppienews[.]com, newsapp[.]biz, trementrecially[.]pro. In most cases browsers open such pages because of potentially unwanted apps (PUAs) that are installed on them. Not many people download and install these apps on purpose. In addition to forcing browsers to open shady pages PUAs gather browsing related (and often other details too) and display intrusive ads.
As a rule, browsers that have PUAs installed on them open pages like mirox22[.]biz in a new browser window or tab. When visited, mirox22[.]biz either displays content that should not be trusted or it redirects its visitors to a couple (about 2-3) of other untrustworthy websites. The way mirox22[.]biz behaves depends on its visitor's geolocation. Additionally, it asks for a permission to show notifications using a clickbait technique. It says that visitors should click the "Allow" button so they could watch some video. However, it clicked, it will allow for mirox22[.]biz to show questionable notifications, unwanted ads, and so on. We advise against allowing pages like mirox22[.]biz to show their notifications. Furthermore, installed PUAs usually are designed to gather information, for instance, user's IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited websites, and so on. Some of them could be designed to record sensitive information too. One way or another, their developers usually send gathered details to other parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse them to generate revenue. Also, PUAs often feed their users with intrusive, deceptive and other unwanted ads like coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, etc. If clicked, they usually lead to potentially malicious pages or run scripts that are designed to download or even install questionable software. For these reasons we recommend to uninstall all installed PUAs as soon as possible. They might cause problems related to browsing safety, privacy, and so on. It is also possible that people who have them installed might be come victims of identity theft.

People who develop apps of this type usually advertise them as useful, legitimate, and so on. In other words, these apps supposed to provide various features. Nevertheless, when installed, PUAs often do not deliver any promised functionality or other value. Most of them are designed only to help developers to generate revenue by causing redirects to questionable pages, gathering information and serving advertisements.
How did adware install on my computer?
Sometimes unwanted apps can be downloaded from their websites, however, most people download and install them unintentionally. It mostly happens when people click intrusive advertisements or download, installations software, usually freeware. To trick people into unwanted downloads or installations, developers usually use a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". To be more precise, they include PUAs in setups of software that people download or install intentionally. Information about apps being included in setups is usually hidden in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings. This method works on people who download and install software without checking settings that are available in its setup and leave them unchanged.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
We recommend to download software from reliable, official websites and using direct download links. It is not recommended to use Peer-to-Peer networks (like eMule, torrent clients), third party software downloaders, installers, unofficial websites and other tools to download or install any software. Also, it is important to always check all available settings like "Advanced", "Custom" that are included in setups and opt-out offers to install or download uwanted programs. Intrusive ads, especially if they are displayed on dubious websites, should not be trusted and clicked. These ads usually redirect users to untrustworthy websites, or cause unwanted downloads, or installations. If there a browser opens shady pages or/and serves ads, then we advise to check what are the installed extensions, plug-ins and add-ons on a web browser, or programs on a computer and uninstall all suspicious, unknown applications or programs. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
