Bestdealfor21[.]life redirect removal instructions
What is the bestdealfor21[.]life site?
Bestdealfor21[.]life is a rogue website. Visitors to it - are presented with questionable content and/or are redirected to other untrustworthy/malicious sites. Users seldom access bestdealfor21[.]life and similar webpages intentionally, they get redirected to them by intrusive advertisement campaigns or by PUAs (Potentially Unwanted Applications). There are thousands of rogue sites on the Web, e.g. esmo.pro, mediamodern.biz, sombes.com and many others.
The first thing bestdealfor21[.]life does is check victims' IP address in order to learn their geolocations. This information is key to determining the website's further course of action. Therefore, whether visitors are redirected elsewhere and/or are presented with dubious material - depends on their geolocation. Bestdealfor21[.]life also uses deceptive tactics to trick users into enabling its browser notifications. If these notifications are allowed, the webpage will begin running intrusive advertisement campaigns. Once clicked on, these ads redirect to various untrustworthy/rogue, deceptive/scam, compromised and malicious websites. Some of these adverts can even be triggered to execute scripts, designed to download/install software without user permission. One of the prime examples of content infiltrated into devices in this manner - are PUAs. Unwanted applications can force-open dangerous sites and/or run intrusive advert campaigns. Most PUAs have data tracking abilities, regardless of their other functionalities. They can monitor browsing history (URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries typed, etc.) and gather vulnerable information inferred from it (IP addresses, geolocations and other details). The collected data is highly likely to contain personally identifiable information. Furthermore, this information is typically shared with and/or sold to third parties (potentially, cyber criminals). To ensure device integrity and user safety, it is strongly recommended to eliminate all suspect applications and browser extensions/plug-ins.

PUAs usually look legitimate and useful. These applications tend to offer a wide variety of functionalities. However, despite how good these offers may sound - the advertised features are rarely operational. Functionality, user convenience and safety are irrelevant, since the only purpose of unwanted apps is to generate revenue for the developers. Therefore, instead of delivering on any promises, PUAs run intrusive advertisement campaigns and collect sensitive information.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some PUAs have "official" promotional webpages, form which they can be downloaded. Intrusive adverts proliferate these applications as well. Upon being clicked, they can execute scripts to download/install PUAs without user consent. However, the most common distribution technique of such apps is via download/installation setups of other programs. This deceptive marketing method of pre-packing regular software with unwanted or malicious additions - is called "bundling". Rushed download/installation processes (e.g. ignored terms, skipped steps, used pre-set options, etc.) - endanger devices with infections from inadvertent installation of bundled content.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended to always research products before download/installation. Only official and verifies download channels should be used. Untrustworthy sources, like: unofficial and free file-hosting websites, Peer-to-Peer sharing networks (BitTorrent, eMule, Gnutella, etc.) and other third party downloaders - commonly offer deceptive ad/or bundled content; therefore, they are advised against use. Download and installation processes must be approached with caution; that includes: reading terms, explore all possible options, using the "Custom" or "Advanced" settings and opting-out from supplementary apps, tools, functions and other additions. It is just as important to exercise caution when browsing. Intrusive advertisements tend to look legitimate and innocuous. However, once clicked - they redirect to various unreliable and questionable webpages (e.g. gambling, pornography, adult-dating and others). In case of encounters with ads/redirects of this type, users must inspect the system and immediately remove all suspicious applications and/or browser extensions/plug-ins from it. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
