fast-push[.]com redirect removal instructions

What is fast-push[.]com?

Fast-push[.]com is one of the many untrustworthy pages that are designed to open a couple of other websites of this kind or load questionable content. It is similar to mediatop[.]me, alldaystream[.]club, 0sntp7dnrr[.]com and a great number of other sites. Quite often such pages get opened by browsers that have some potentially unwanted application (PUA) installed on them. In other words, people do not visit them willingly, intentionally. It is worthwhile to mention that most PUAs gather browsing-related information and/or display various advertisements as well.

fast-push[.]com pop-up redirects

Typically, PUAs open pages like fast-push[.]com in a new browser window or tab. When visited, they usually either load some dubious content (and ask for a permission to show notifications) or redirect visitors to a couple (about two or three) other untrustworthy websites. It depends on visitor's geolocation. It is very common that pages like fast-push[.]com are designed to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications by using one or another clickbait technique. This particular page suggests that in order to watch some video visitors have to click the "Allow" button. If allowed, websites like fast-push[.]com start to display notifications that contain links to untrustworthy pages, deceptive advertisements and other shady content. Therefore, such pages should not be given a permission to show notifications. Furthermore, quite often PUAs are designed to serve ads like coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups and other intrusive advertisements. In most cases those ads, if clicked, open untrustworthy, often deceptive pages or execute scripts that download or even install unwanted software. Also, PUAs often operate as information tracking tools that collect details like IP addresses, URLs of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations and other browsing data. Some of PUAs target sensitive information as well. Their developers often sell collected data to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue in other ways. PUAs might cause problems related to browsing safety, privacy, some users may even become victims of identity theft. If there is some PUA installed on a browser and/or operating system, then it should be uninstalled immediately.

It is common that PUAs that are advertised as legitimate, useful applications that supposed to deliver some features and/or other value. Nevertheless, only a small part of them operate as they were advertised/supposed to. More often than not they are useless and designed only to generate revenue for their developers. Moreover, their users are exposed at risk of various problems.

How did adware install on my computer?

In some cases PUAs can be downloaded from their websites, however, more often than not people download and/or install them unknowingly (unintentionally). Very often PUAs are distributed by including them in various download and/or installation setups of other programs. This distribution method is called "bundling". Developers use it with a purpose to trick people into downloading and/or installing PUAs together with some other, wanted software. Typically, offers to download and/or install potentially unwanted apps can be found in "Custom", "Advanced" settings of setups. However, quite often people leave those settings unchanged and unknowingly agree with offers to download and/or install additionally included apps. Various advertisements can cause unwanted downloads and installations too, however, only if they are designed to execute certain scripts.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

All software and files should be downloaded from official websites and through direct links. Other sources, channels like Peer-to-Peer networks (eMule, torrent clients), unofficial web pages, various third party downloaders, installers etc., should not be used. If a download and/or installation setup contains settings like "Advanced", "Manual, "Custom", then they should be checked for offers to download and/or install unwanted software. Offers to download and/or install unwanted apps should be declined before completing downloads and installations. Intrusive ads that appear on questionable pages should not be trusted (clicked). They usually either open untrustworthy pages or cause downloads and/or installations of unwanted applications. If there are any unwanted, unknown, suspicious apps installed extensions, add-ons or plug-ins on a browser, then they should be removed. Software of this kind that is installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
