Increamy[.]club redirect removal instructions
What is increamy[.]club?
As a rule, users do not visit websites like increamy[.]club intentionally - in most cases such pages are promoted/opened by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). There is a great number of sites like increamy.club, for example, go4news[.]biz, dabluehole[.]com and equiposeguridadindustrial[.]com. They are designed either to open other dubious pages or load questionable content. It is worthwhile to mention that PUAs can be designed not only to promote addresses like increamy[.]club but also to serve ads and/or function as data collectors.
When some installed PUA opens a website like increamy[.]club, then that website opens a couple of other unreliable pages or displays shady content. It depends on its visitor's geolocation. Increamy[.]club says that it can be loaded by clicking the "Allow" button, although, it is just one of the clickbait techniques used by such websites to trick their visitors into allowing them to show their notifications. If allowed, websites like this one show notifications with deceptive ads, links to unreliable pages, etc. Another issue with PUAs is that they can function as data collectors that target information related to user's browsing habits. For example, IP addresses, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, geolocation, etc. However, in some cases apps of this type can be designed to record personal details as well. The bigger problem with it is that collected data may be sold to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) or misused to generate revenue in other ways. Also, such apps can be designed feed users with advertisements, for example, coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other types of advertisements. It is common that those ads, if clicked, open questionable websites. Although, they can be designed to download and/or install various unwanted applications by running certain scripts as well. To sum up, users who have apps of this type installed on a browser and/or computer may experience problems related to browsing safety, online privacy, or even become victims of identity theft.

To summarize, neither increamy[.]club or websites that it is designed to promote/open can be trusted. Applications that open such websites should not be used (installed) as well. If an app of this type is already installed on a browser and/or the operating system, then it should be uninstalled. It is worthwhile to mention that they are called PUAs because in most cases users download and install them inadvertently.
How did adware install on my computer?
One of the most popular ways to distribute PUAs is to integrate them in download and/or installation setups of other programs as extra offers. As a rule, such offers can be found in "Advanced", "Manual", "Custom", or other settings of setups and can be declined via them. PUAs get a permission to be downloaded and/or installed when users leave the aforementioned settings unchanged. In some cases unwanted downloads, installations can be caused by clicking deceptive advertisements. Although, only through the ads that are designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
To avoid unwanted downloads and/or installations it is advised not to use third party downloaders, installers, unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), and so on as tools to download or install any software (or files). It should be done by using only official websites and direct links. Also, it is important to check "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings of any download, installation setup and see if they mention offers to download and/or install some PUA. Additionally, it is not to click advertisements that are shown on various shady pages. Such ads can be designed either to open various untrustworthy websites or cause unwanted downloads and/or installations. All unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons and plug-ins that are already installed on a browser should be uninstalled. The same should be applied to software of this kind that is installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
