Pushbestdevice[.]com redirect removal instructions

What is pushbestdevice[.]com?

Websites like pushbestdevice[.]com are designed to load some questionable content or redirect visitors to various untrustworthy pages. Balanceforsun[.]com, sawhitpew[.]site and wbamedia[.]net are examples of other sites that operate like pushbestdevice[.]com. In most cases they get opened by browsers that have some potentially unwanted application (PUA) installed on them. In other words, people usually do not visit them intentionally. It is worth mentioning that PUAs not only open untrustworthy pages but also gather browsing data and/or serve intrusive advertisements.

pushbestdevice[.]com pop-up redirects

Installed PUAs are designed to open websites like pushbestdevice[.]com in a new browser window or tab. When visited, they either open about two or three other shady websites or load some shady content. It depends on visitor's geolocation. In one way or another, neither pushbestdevice[.]com or pages that get opened through it can be trusted. Also, pushbestdevice[.]com asks visitors to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button. This is just one of the many clickbait techniques that websites like pushbestdevice[.]com use to trick visitors into allowing them to show their notifications. If allowed, they start to display notifications that contain deceptive ads, links to untrustworthy websites, and so on. Furthermore, most PUAs collect browsing-related information (user's IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages, etc.). However, it is possible that installed PUA may be designed to gather sensitive, personal details as well. Either way, people behind apps of this type tend to sell gathered data to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. Also, quite often PUAs feed users with various intrusive advertisements. They serve ads that are shown in forms of pop-ups, coupons, banners, surveys, and so on. People who click those ads usually get redirected to various questionable pages. In some cases those ads are designed to execute scripts that cause download and/or installation of some PUA, or even malicious program. Installed PUA can cause problems related to browsing safety, privacy, it is possible that some users might become victims of identity theft. Therefore, any installed PUA should be removed from a browser and/or operating system as soon as possible.

It is quite common that PUAs are advertised as legitimate, useful applications that supposed to deliver some features. However, not many of them operate as they were advertised. More often than not they are designed only to help their developers to generate revenue and cause various problems.

How did adware install on my computer?

Most people download and install PUAs unintentionally: when they click deceptive ads or download and/or install some software. Unwanted downloads and/or installations through other programs happen when developers include PUAs in their download and/or installation setups. This distribution method is known as "bundling". Typically, information about additionally included apps are hidden in setup's options like "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar sections. People who leave those settings unchanged when they download and/or install various software often unknowingly give various PUAs a permission to be downloaded and/or installed too. Deceptive ads cause unwanted downloads and/or installations when they are designed to run certain scripts.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is not recommended to click intrusive ads, especially when they are displayed on questionable websites (e.g., pages related to gambling, adult dating, pornography, and so on). Also, files and programs should be downloaded only from official websites. It is not safe to use third party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule), unofficial pages and other similar channels for that. Third party installers should not be used too. Furthermore, we recommend not to finish downloads and installations without checking "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings. Quite often they contain offers to download and/or install additional, unwanted software. Also, we recommend make sure that there are no unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins or add-ons installed on a browser and/or programs of this kind installed on the operating system. They should be uninstalled as soon as possible. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
