Stop redirects to happy.luckyparkclub[.]com
What is happy.luckyparkclub[.]com?
happy.luckyparkclub[.]com is a deceptive website that, if opened, invites visitors to participate in lotteries and to win prizes. To gain a chance to win a prize, a survey must first be completed. Typically, people do not visit websites such as happy.luckyparkclub[.]com intentionally - they are redirected to them through clicked untrustworthy ads or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on browsers and/or computers. Generally, people download and install these apps unintentionally. When installed, PUAs feed users with ads, cause redirects to dubious web pages such as happy.luckyparkclub[.]com, and gather information. We advise against completing any surveys promoted through happy.luckyparkclub[.]com or other similar websites, since they might be used to obtain private details, which could be misused to generate revenue.
happy.luckyparkclub[.]com invites visitors to participate in different lotteries. All request users to complete surveys and answer questions. Once a survey is complete, people supposedly gain the chance to win prizes such as a $1000 Visa or Walmart gift card, Netflix membership, Apple iPhone XS, and Samsung Galaxy S10. Note that Walmart, Visa, and Netflix have nothing to do with lotteries or surveys presented by happy.luckyparkclub[.]com. The site is simply used to record visitor details by tricking them into answering questions. They might be asked to provide information such as email address, name, surname, telephone number, etc. Furthermore, surveys opened through happy.luckyparkclub[.]com could be used to trick people into providing private, sensitive information. In this article, we provide three examples of lotteries/surveys, however, happy.luckyparkclub[.]com leads to more than just three. In any case, none of these surveys can be trusted.
Apps that open web pages such as happy.luckyparkclub[.]com are usually designed to serve people with other unwanted content such as pop-up ads, banners, coupons, etc. People who click these ads are often redirected to other untrustworthy websites, and the ads sometimes run scripts that download or install unwanted software. Furthermore, installed PUAs are used to record data including, for example, users' IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, geolocations, and so on. Developers share the details with third parties (who might be cyber criminals) and misuse them to generate revenue. As well as browsing-related information, some PUAs collect personal, sensitive details.

happy.luckyparkclub[.]com is virtually identical to happy.goodluckspace[.]com. These are not the only deceptive websites used to trick people into completing surveys and providing information. The people behind them use the details to generate revenue, and visitors never win any prizes. We advise against providing any information on sites such as happy.luckyparkclub[.]com. Uninstall all PUAs on your browser or computer immediately.
How did potentially unwanted applications install on my computer?
PUAs can be downloaded from their websites, however, most are installed through intrusive ads capable of executing scripts or when software developers include them into the set-ups of other programs using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". They use this method trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with other software. They achieve this by hiding information about the inclusion PUAs in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar sections of the download or installation set-ups. Note, however, that unwanted downloads/installations happen only when people leave the settings unchanged.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
Download software from official and trustworthy websites. Do not use third party downloaders, installers, unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule), or other channels of this type to download or install software. Do not complete any download/installation process without checking settings (such as "Custom", "Advanced") available in the software setup. Dismiss any offers to download or install additional, unwanted software before completing the installation/download process. Do not click ads displayed on web pages relating to adult dating, gambling, pornography, etc. Typically, they cause redirects to untrustworthy websites or download/installation of unwanted programs. To stop the browser from displaying ads and/or causing redirects to dubious web pages, remove unwanted, suspicious or unknown extensions, plug-ins, and add-ons. Also remove programs of this kind installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with PUAs, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
