Younwild[.]com redirect removal instructions

What is younwild[.]com?

Younwild[.]com operates like zahkit[.]pro, usinesmycete[.]info, scuseami[.]net and many other rogue websites. When visited, it either opens a couple of other untrustworthy pages or loads some questionable content. Typically, websites like younwild[.]com get opened through various shady pages, deceptive ads or by installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Apps of this type usually are designed to gather browsing-related details and/or display various advertisements.

younwild[.]com pop-up redirects

The aforementioned PUAs open pages like younwild[.]com in a new browser window or tab. These rogue websites either open more (about 2-3) untrustworthy sites or load some questionable content. It depends on visitor's IP address (geolocation). It is worth mentioning that pages like younwild[.]com often open websites that contain deceptive ads, are designed to advertise questionable software, and so on. One more detail about younwild[.]com is that this page is designed to deceive visitors into giving it a permission to show notifications by using a clickbait technique. It encourages them to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button. However, by clicking this button visitors would allow younwild[.]com to show notifications that may contain deceptive ads, links to untrustworthy pages, and so on. As we mentioned in the introduction, PUAs not only force users to visit pages like younwild[.]com but also serve intrusive advertisements and/or gather information related to browsing habits. Typically, apps of this type display ads in forms of coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and so on. Either way, those ads usually lead to untrustworthy websites or execute scripts that are designed to download and/or install some unwanted, potentially malicious software. Therefore, those ads should not be clicked. Furthermore, PUAs can be (and often are) designed to gather details like user's IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, and other details of this kind. Nevertheless, there are many PUAs that can access sensitive, personal information as well. It is common that their developers misuse collected data to generate revenue or they sell it to third parties (potentially cyber criminals). Having apps of this type installed could lead to problems related to browsing safety, privacy, or even identity theft. Therefore, any installed PUA should be removed as soon as possible.

Very often PUAs are advertised as useful, they supposed to deliver various features, and so on. Unfortunately, most of them are designed only to display various ads, cause unwanted redirects and/or collect various data. In other words, quite often they do not operate as they were advertised and designed only to help their developers to generate revenue.

How did adware install on my computer?

In most cases people download and/or install various PUAs unknowingly. They cause it by clicking deceptive ads that are displayed mainly on shady pages and can execute certain scripts or during downloads and/or installations of other programs. In other words, when developers distribute PUAs by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". Simply said, this method is being used to trick people into downloading and/or installing potentially unwanted apps together with other software that they download, install intentionally. As a rule, developers include PUAs in various download and/or installation setups and hide information about in their settings like "Custom", "Advanced". Not all people check (and change) those settings and that is how they allow for various PUAs to be downloaded and/or installed through setups of wanted programs.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is recommended to download software only from official, trustworthy websites and via direct links. Tools, channels like third party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, and so on, should not be used. Quite often they are used as tools to trick people into downloading and/or installing more than they wanted. Also, we advise not to leave "Advanced", "Custom" and other options/settings of any download and/or installation setup unchecked. Those settings often mention offers to download and/or install unwanted apps. They can always be declined before finishing download and/or installation process. Furthermore, various intrusive ads that are displayed on shady pages), when clicked, open untrustworthy websites should not be clicked. It is very common that they either open other untrustworthy sites or cause unwanted downloads, installations. And finally, we recommend to uninstall all unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons, plug-ins from browser and software of this kind from the operating system. Especially if a browser opens shady pages by itself and/or it displays unwanted advertisements. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
