younwild[.]com redirect removal instructions
What is younwild[.]com?
younwild[.]com has similar behavior to zahkit[.]pro, usinesmycete[.]info, scuseami[.]net and many other rogue websites. When visited, it opens a number of other untrusted pages or loads dubious content. Typically, websites such as younwild[.]com are opened through various dubious web pages, deceptive ads or by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) installed on the system. Apps of this type usually gather browsing-related details and/or display advertisements.
The aforementioned PUAs open pages such as younwild[.]com in new browser windows or tabs. These rogue websites open more (about 2-3) untrusted sites or load dubious content - actions that depend on visitors' IP addresses (geolocations). Sites such as younwild[.]com often open websites that contain deceptive ads, advertise dubious software, and so on. Note that younwild[.]com commonly deceives visitors into giving 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, clicking it in fact allows younwild[.]com to show notifications that might contain deceptive ads, links to untrusted pages, and so on. PUAs force users to visit pages such as younwild[.]com, serve intrusive advertisements and/or gather information relating to browsing habits. Typically, apps of this type display ads in the form of coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and so on. These can lead to untrusted websites or execute scripts that download/install unwanted, potentially malicious software. Therefore, never click these ads. Furthermore, PUAs commonly record details such as users' IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, and other details. Many PUAs can also access sensitive, personal information. The developers misuse the data to generate revenue or sell it to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). Having apps of this type installed can thus lead to problems relating to browsing safety, privacy or even identity theft. Therefore, remove all PUAs immediately.

PUAs are often advertised as useful and supposedly deliver various features, however, most display various ads, cause unwanted redirects and collect data. They do not operate as advertised and are designed only to help the developers to generate revenue.
How did adware install on my computer?
People download and install PUAs inadvertently when they click deceptive ads (displayed on dubious web pages and execute certain scripts) or during download/installation of other programs - i.e., when developers distribute PUAs using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". This method is used to trick people into downloading and installing potentially unwanted apps together with regular software. Generally, developers include PUAs into various download/installation set-ups and hide related information in settings such as "Custom" or "Advanced". Many people fail to check and change these settings, thereby allowing various PUAs to be downloaded and installed through the set-ups of required programs.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications
You are advised to download software only from official, trustworthy websites and via direct links. Tools, channels such as third party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, and so on be avoided should, since they are often used to trick people into downloading/installing additional rogue software. Check all "Advanced", "Custom" and other options/settings of the download/installation setup, and decline any offers to download or install unwanted apps before finishing the process. Do not click intrusive ads that are displayed on dubious web pages - when clicked, they can open untrusted websites or cause unwanted downloads and installations. Uninstall all unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons, and plug-ins from the browser and software of this kind from the operating system (especially if the browser opens dubious pages automatically and/or displays unwanted advertisements). If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
