Robotornotcheckonline[.]club redirect removal instructions
What is robotornotcheckonline[.]club?
Robotornotcheckonline[.]club is quite similar to a great number of other shady pages. For example, pushstack[.]co, readmenewz[.]com, and rednews7[.]com. What all these pages have in common is that that people who visit them are being provided with shady content or redirected to untrustworthy websites. As a rule, they do not visit websites like robotornotcheckonline[.]club on purpose, more often than not browsers open them because some installed potentially unwanted application (PUA) forces them to. Apps of this type are usually designed to feed users with intrusive ads and gather information about them too.
Installed PUAs regularly open shady pages like robotornotcheckonline[.]club in a new browser window or tab. When visited, they redirect visitors to a couple (2-3) questionable, potentially malicious pages or display shady content. What a website like robotornotcheckonline[.]club will do depends on its visitor's geolocation. It is worth mentioning that this particular website encourages to click the "Allow" button which supposed to confirm that its visitor is not a robot. However, this is just a clickbait technique which is used to trick people into allowing this page to show its notifications. When allowed, websites of this type start to display unwanted content (like ads) that might be designed to trick people into downloading, installing unwanted software, and so on. As we mentioned in the introduction, PUAs often are designed to display various ads. Examples of ads that their users are forced to see are various coupons, banners, surveys, pop-up ads, and so on. It is not safe to click these ads because they open untrustworthy websites or download, install unwanted, potentially malicious applications. They doit by running certain scripts that are designed to cause it. Additionally, there are many PUAs that collect various details relate to user's browsing habits, for example, IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of opened pages, entered search queries, etc. Their developers usually send gathered information to third parties who misuse it to generate revenue. There is always a possibility that some of the third parties might be cyber criminals. It is not safe to have apps of this type installed, they might be the reason behind unwanted downloads, installations, problems with privacy, browsing safety. Also, data collected by them might be missused to steal identities.

What most PUAs have in common is that they are advertised as legitimate, useful applications. Their developers offer users various supposedly handy features, and so on. However, most often apps of this type do not deliver any value and are designed only to generate revenue for their developers. Besides, people who use them risk to experience various problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
More often than not people download and/or install PUAs unintentionally (accidentally). In most cases they get tricked into it when they download and/or install various, usually free software. To be more precise, when unwanted apps are included in download or installation setups as additional offers. This distribution method of PUAs is known as "bundling". Typically, information about unwanted apps being included in setups is hidden in settings of setups like "Custom", "Advanced", and so on. Quite often people do not check them, they leave them unchanged. It means that they allow PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed together with other, wanted software. Additionally, unwanted downloads (and installations) can be caused through intrusive, deceptive ads too. Sometimes ads of this kind, if clicked, execute scripts that are designed to download or install various unwanted programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Software should be downloaded from official websites, other sources like third party downloaders, unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (like eMule, torrent clients), etc., should not be trusted. The same applies to installations through third party installers. Quite often they are monetized by using them as tools to distribute unwanted apps. Another important thing is to check all "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings that are included in download or installation setups. If they contain offers to download or install unwanted software, then such offers should be dismissed before completing download or installation process. Furthermore, advertisements that are displayed on questionable websites should never be clicked: they lead to potentially malicious websites or cause unwanted downloads, installations. One more thing we recommend to do is to remove/uninstall all unwanted, unknown or suspicious extensions, add-ons or plug-ins that are installed on a browser and programs of this kind that are 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.
