rex-news1[.]club redirect removal instructions
What is rex-news1[.]club?
rex-news1[.]club is the address of a dubious website, which is generally visited by people unintentionally. Typically, browsers open these web pages when potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) are installed on them. When opened, rex-news1[.]club redirects to other untrustworthy sites or loads dubious content. Many other websites function in a similar manner to rex-news1[.]club. Some examples are secretvideos2020[.]com, glagolinius[.]com and mayfootekvideo[.]com. Most PUAs are designed to feed users with unwanted advertisements and gather user-information.
Once installed, PUAs start to regularly open dubious web pages such as rex-news1[.]club in new browser windows or tabs. When opened, they cause redirects to other (about two, three) websites of this kind or load untrustworthy content. These actions depend on the geolocations of their visitors. Sites such as rex-news1[.]club often open deceptive, potentially malicious websites. Most ask to show notifications. This particular sites states that some videos are played only if visitors click the "Allow" button. This is one of many 'clickbait' techniques that are used to trick people into allowing websites such as rex-news1[.]club to show notifications (unwanted ads, links to untrustworthy sites, etc.). Furthermore, PUAs often display ads and collect various data. They feed users with intrusive ads (coupons, banners, surveys, pop-up ads, and so on) that conceal underlying content of visited websites. People who click these ads are usually redirected to untrustworthy websites or allow them to run scripts, which then download and install unwanted programs. Most PUAs record browsing data, such as IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, entered search queries, and so on. In some cases, they can access and record confidential, sensitive details. Developers sell the information to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue.

Most PUAs have similar behavior. They force browsers to open dubious web pages, gather browsing data and/or serve various ads. Furthermore, they do not deliver any real value and can cause problems relating to browsing safety, privacy, and so on. People who use these apps might end up having their identities stolen. You are strongly advised not to use any PUAs.
How did adware install on my computer?
People often download and/or install various unwanted apps unintentionally when they click deceptive ads displayed on untrustworthy websites or through the set-ups of regular software. In many cases, PUAs are distributed by including them into various download and installation set-ups - this distribution method is called "bundling". They are presented as additional offers that can usually be found in "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar parts of the set-ups. Unfortunately, many people download and install programs without checking these settings, thereby allowing PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
To avoid PUAs from being downloaded and installed, download programs from official, trustworthy websites and do not use third party downloaders (or installers), and torrent clients, eMule (or other Peer-to-Peer networks) unofficial pages, etc. Software should not be downloaded or installed without checking settings included in the setup. Dismiss any offers to download or install unwanted apps. Do not click ads that appear on dubious web pages - these often lead to other web pages of this kind or cause unwanted downloads/installations. Browsers commonly open dubious web pages and show ads due to PUAs installed on them. To prevent this, remove all unwanted plug-ins, add-ons or extensions from the browser, and software of this kind from the computer (operating system). If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
